WHICH TYPE OF SNOWBOARD SHOE FITS ME?
Do you want to shine next winter with a pair of brand new snowboard boots? Great! Make sure you know exactly which boots are suited for your foot and your style. In this video, our advisor Björn gives some handy tips to make choosing easier.
FLEX VALUE - STIFFNESS OF THE SHOE
The stiffness of the shoe determines how your movement is transferred to your snowboard. This applies to your right and wrong movements. A shoe with a high flex value reacts more directly and will let you know faster if you make a mistake while snowboarding. This makes the stiffer shoe often more suitable for the snowboarder with more experience. A shoe with a lower flex value reacts slower and leaves more room for mistakes. This means that a flexible shoe can be suitable for a beginning snowboarder, but also for a very experienced freestyler. This means that a flexible shoe can be suitable for a beginner, but also for a very experienced freestyler, because they want more flexibility in their shoe as well. Another important point for the selection of a new snowboard shoe is how you attach the shoe.
Boa closures and quick laces are currently very common. They work fast and are easy to fasten without using too much force. With snowboard boots with a BOA closure, fastening is very easy. You just have to turn the knob. There are boots with single boas, double boas and even triple boas. The more BOA buttons, the more adjustment possibilities. With these adjustment possibilities, you can determine yourself how tight your foot is in different places.
There are also snowboard boots with fast lacing systems. These lacing systems usually work with two zones where you pull the laces through the closure. You can easily pull these laces through the built-in closure to tie them immediately.
