Life is easy when you collaborate with family, so it was a no-brainer when Vans aligned with Darrell Mathes and his company, HOWL, for a custom collaboration on Vans' best-selling snowboard boot of all time: the Hi-Standard. One of the Vans team favorites, the Hi-Standard has set the standard for classic style and modern performance with an easy, reliable lace-up construction, as well as an uncompromising fit for ultimate heel hold and instep comfort. The Reverse Waffle rubber outsoles fight fatigue, absorb impact, and optimize feel and control, while the Pleasure Cuff offers supple elasticity for a customized fit and lasting comfort. The Hi-Standard also features an internal web harness for versatile harness options, heat-moldable Flex liners for instant flex without the break-in delay, and dual-density UltraCush V2 Footbeds for reliable dampening capabilities. The Hi-Standard is made with synthetic leather and textile uppers.
