Boot SummarySnowboard boots
are mostly considered soft boots,
though alpine snowboarding uses a harder boot
similar to a ski boot.
A boot's primary function is to transfer the rider's energy into the board, protect the rider with support, and keep the rider's feet warm. A snowboarder shopping for boots
is usually looking for a good fit, flex, and looks. Boots
can have different features such as lacing styles, heat molding liners, and gel padding. There are snowboard boots
that are made for most bindings
and some that are made for "step in" style bindings.
Step in boots
will need to be purchased in tandem with their corresponding bindings.Full Article
