K2 Aspect Snowboard Boots

“Vans-slip-on comfort while touring”

The Tech: The Aspect dynasty continues with a fourth consecutive Editors’ Choice Award. Testers were amped on the inner Boa lacing system, which cinches the Intuition SpaceHeater liner, as well as on the trustworthiness of traditional laces and a Velcro strap across the tongue.

The Talk: The Vibram Mountaineer Outsole’s “chunky lugs” had one uphill-oriented tester frothing. “I’ve scrambled up some weird shit in these,” confessed another Tahoe hardcore, who gave credit to Vibram traction, a stiff forward flex, a reinforced toe box and semi-automatic crampon compatibility. Testers noted how the stiffness is customizable, and one recommended popping the Boa for “Vans-slip-on comfort while touring” or for surfier descents.
