Everyone should start with a good Mantra.
Vans reintroduces the Men's Mantra Snowboard Boot this season as an excellent entry-level boot for budget-minded riders. The updated, hand-sewn VSS liner features a one-pull lace closure and heel-holding Achilles pads for simple, effective function and support. Checker B footbeds provide antimicrobial protection along with integrated arch support and high-rebound EVA padding. Vans' technically advanced Pro-Flex Snowaffle Outsole maximizes traction and turning response without inhibiting flex and feel at the toe of the boot. Die-cut EVA midsoles provide additional cushioning and give classic skate shoe aesthetics to this beginner boot. Synthetic leather and textile uppers and improved lace hooks round out the soft-flexing, forgiving Mantra.
