Get the performance you need without going broke.
Thanks to solid construction, plenty of cushioning, and a soft, skate-shoe-like flex, the Vans Hi-Standard Snowboard Boot is the model of choice for many of the rail-killing warriors on Vans' pro team. Burly double-riveted lace hooks and the Instep Lace Lockout help you dial in tension for a glove-like fit.
- Pleasure Cuff flexes at the back of the boot to reduce calf bite and keep you riding longer
- Instep Lace Lockout keeps tension in the lower part of the boot exactly where you want it while you lace up the top half
- Buttery flex lets you tweak out tuck-knees or lock into nosepresses with ease

Super comfy and fits great to your vans shoe size. Your feet are kept toasty warm with even the thinnest of socks. Plus they are super stylish. I highly recommend buying a pair.
Sweet and Comfortable
By far the most stylish boots in the planet. They are very lightweight but a bit in the bulky side. Most comfortable boot I have ever put on and when you are strapped in you can't even feel the binding which gives it a nice all mountain skate feel. Excellent boot buy them for sure.
Most comfortable boots I've ever put on, and that's right out of the box. Unrivaled style, as far as I'm concerned. They look so tight and the white laces on the black boots give them a nice, clean look. Laces are high quality, loop hooks are durable and strong and the lining on the inside feels great on your feet/legs.
SOLID purchase if you're looking for high quality boots--can't beat the price.
I like the boots a lot. I wear a size 9 in vans shoes and the size lined up perfectly. They are very comfortable and very soft.
The only downside is the top is kind of bulky. And if you wear skinny pants the lace hooks interfere a little.
I'm learning that sizing is way different...
I'm learning that sizing is way different when it comes to boot model, let alone boot brands. So, with that being said, how true to size does the 2012 Hi-Standard fit? I've read it's about a half size smaller. Can someone please confirm or provide some details on the size? I normally wear an 8 1/2 to 9 size shoe. Thanks in advance for any tips.
Unfortunately after ordering the boots, I discovered a very painful pressure point on the inside of my foot at the top of my ankle bone. The bottom cinch of the liner's lacing system is right where the foot bends at the ankle. I tried everything but every time I laced up it caused bad pain. Great looking boot and otherwise very comfortable. Just couldn't deal with that issue.
Try molding your insoles with a hair drier. Also, you can't just shove your feet in them and lace them up and expect it to be comfortable.
You have to ensure the tongue is positioned correctly and your heel is seated properly and lace them up progressively by sections.
They might seem kind of tight initially but either the hair drier trick or just wearing them around the house will break em in a bit.
If you are wearing too thick of socks that will create a lot of extra pressure as well, I wear military boot socks which are fairly thin but still wool. My feet stay toasty even when the mercury drops and I have issues with getting too cold at times.
such a nice boot sometimes i dont even wear socks by far my favourite boot ive ever gotten. so soft like steping on kittens!
