Snowboard boots for beginners to professionals

Finding the right boots for snowboarding is a small science in itself. The snowboard boots are one of the most important parts of your snowboard equipment and the perfect snowboard boot for you depends on your foot, your riding level and your snowboard style. At Brettsport you can find high quality, functional and stylish snowboard boots from Nitro and Ride for all snowboard styles and riding skill levels.

Snowboard boots styles and levels

  • All mountain snowboard boots for experienced freeriders and snowboarders who love variety and want all snowboard styles. 
  • Freerider Snowboardboots for wonderful descents through the untouched powder snow
  • Freestyle snowboard boots for wild jumps and rail tricks
  • Riding Levels: Beginner, Advanced, Expert

Snowboard boots hardness

Snowboard boots come in different degrees of hardness from soft to medium to stiff. The terms "Flex" or "Stiffness" determine the softness and flexibility of the boots, some manufacturers also specify 1-10, with higher numbers indicating a higher hardness. The vast majority of snowboarders and all-mountain riders are certainly best served with a medium to stiff boot.

Soft boots with a lot of "flex" allow a lot of mobility and are therefore perfect for freestylers, jibbing and park riders. They offer a relaxed feel, optimal freedom of movement for tricks and fun slides. The soft snowboard boots are also ideal for snowboard beginners because they can forgive or mitigate some sometimes painful beginner mistakes while riding due to the flex. The material gives with the soft boots in the first days a little bit and will adapt so to the foot optimally.

Hard boots are suitable for a lot of edge pressure, provide perfect stability for your feet and ensure a fast power transfer to the board. They are the perfect boots for freeriders and pros who love high speeds, precise handling, fast, hard reactions and turns all over the slope and beyond.

Snowboard Boots Fit

The fit of snowboard boots are the be-all and end-all when choosing your boots. The boot needs to be a very snug fit. When kneeling and  bending forward, the heel must stay down. In fact, the foot shapes of Europeans, Americans and Asians differ on average from each other and the lasts on which the shoes of individual manufacturers are optimized for these average values. Nitro is the only manufacturer that produces over a last with average European measurements and in fact the vast majority of our customers rate the fit of our Nitro boots the best. By the way, even if you have previously driven boots from other manufacturers and were satisfied. There seems to have been a lot of change in this area over the last few years. 

When you try on the boot, your toes may still lightly touch the toe of the boot. When you go into the snowboarding position and bend your legs, the foot slides back very slightly. The boot must keep the heel down, it must not lift or lift minimally.  The boot still stretches slightly during use. If you are between two sizes and your foot only lightly touches the top of the boot when the smaller size is not bent, then this is the right size. If you do accidentally choose a boot that turns out to be a little too big when you use it, you can often still compensate for that by adding an insole.

Snowboard boots lacing systems

The ideal lacing is absolutely important and which lacing system is right for you also depends on your skill and your snowboard style. In our shop you can find snowboard boots with traditional lacing with laces for full freedom when lacing, boots from Nitro with TLS 5 Twin Lacing System (a quick lacing system or also 2-zone lacing system with separate foot zone and shin zone for simplified lacing and loosening) and of course the Ride boots with the super fast and effort-saving patented BOA® system, which guarantees speed records when putting on and taking off even with gloves. Nitro also now has several models with the BOA® system.

Traditional lacing or Traditional Lacing 

The standard lacing is a lacing system with classic, but more stable laces in old school style. The traditional lacing system stands for full freedom when lacing. Every part of your foot can be adjusted optimally, giving support to unusual feet. Snowboard boots with traditional lacing are a bit cheaper and quite quick to repair when you are on the go on the mountain. However, the classic boot lacing is also power-consuming and must be tightened more often on the road. Suitable mainly for freestylers and freeriders, less suitable for beginners! If you remember to pack spare laces, the traditional lacing systems offer the highest safety when touring in the backcountry. Boots with a traditional lacing system we have from RIDE and Nitro in our range. 

 

848556_TEAM_TLS_STONE-BLACK0005_bei_brettsport-deTLS Twin Lacing System and Re/Lace Liner Locker 

A quick lacing system or 2-zone lacing system with separate foot zone and shin zone for easy lacing and loosening via built-in handle. It takes less than 60 seconds to put on or take off your snowboard boots with a TLS system. The Re/Lace Liner Locker makes it possible to tighten the boot again if necessary even in the chairlift without having to loosen the lacing system. Ideal is that you can adjust the pressure on the foot and on the lower leg by two independent systems very precisely to your needs. An important aspect especially for freeriding: Even if the laces tear times, you can still adjust the shoe through the lace loops so tight that the descent is always secured. The TLS system is suitable for all styles and levels. You will find the TLS system on most Nitro boots.

 

 

QLS Quick Lacing System 

Newly developed lacing system from Nitro. A highly reliable zone lacing system. A simple lacing system combined with wear resistant Dyneema®  laces and the same components as the TLS system. The QLS system is easier to use because there is only one set of laces. The QLS system is therefore used on Nitro's kids and youth boots.

 

848572_CYPRESSBOADUAL_BONEWHITE0006SjJpLwSnmanBhBOA® System  

A millimeter-precise, super-fast and above all effort-saving lacing system is the patented Boa® system, which guarantees speed records when putting on and taking off even with gloves. The low-friction rope system with extremely resilient laces made of nylon and the finely adjustable knob guarantee perfect hold and fit of your snowboard boots. Through only one handle on the twist lock, you can open, close and adjust the snowboard boot for a perfect fit. However, if the laces are torn, you can't repair them yourself and you can't continue riding. If you have a high instep, the BOA® Dual Zone Fit System is highly recommended. Suitable for all-mountain. 

Boa® Dual Zone Fit System 

Like the BOA® system, only equipped with two knobs. With two independent twist locks on the tongue and side, you can fully customize your snowboard boot in the lower and upper parts for the ultimate fit. Perfectly suited for problem feet and a high instep. The BOA® closure at the front of the boot tightens the rope in the upper part of the boot and the BOA® closure on the side tightens the rope in the forefoot area.

Boots with the BOA® system we have from RIDE and also Nitro offers due to the popularity of the BOA® system now several models with this system. By the way, we always have spare parts for the BOA® system in stock. 

THE CLOSER ™ 

An extension of the BOA® system on the RIDE boots provides the dual power to securely close your boot. The Closer™ lace guide has been centered over the forefoot to extend the force of the laces throughout the boot. Along with the BOA®  system, The Closer lacing system takes quick-release lacing to a whole new level and delivers a uniquely comfortable fit. 

LOCK DOWN™ TURBO 

A secure lacing mechanism,on RIDE boots that keeps the inner laces in place and doesn't let them hang around.

 

Snowboard boots sizes and fitting

Brettsport carries snowboard boots for men, women and children. We specify the size of snowboard boots in the international standard Mondopoint. The Mondopoint value corresponds to the length of your foot in millimeters (mm)- Mondopoint is the same for children, women and men. Please do not order several sizes without measuring, but use the Mondopoint scale and a tape measure to find the right size for you. You will find the table for all boots below in the description!

The snowboard boots must fit perfectly, provide optimum support but also be comfortable and warm.  In normal stand, the snowboard boots well laced and with thick socks, the toe tips touch the front of the inner shoe slightly. If you then lean forward and go into the slightly squatting ride position, then the toes slide back and you touch the inner shoe in front only very slightly or not at all. It is important that your heel does not lift and remains firmly in the shoe even when leaning forward. Snowboard boots widen with use, in case of doubt, the smaller size is then better.

Important to know: All snowboard bindings, snowboard boots and the boards of one brand are compatible with each other. Almost all of the products we sell can also be combined with each other without any problems.

If  you live in the north of Germany, you can also come to us and try on the boots. This is always the best way. We can also send you up to three boots and you can try on the boots at home in peace and if you keep a pair, the return of the other two boots is free of charge for you.

Nitro has made a separate video for each of its boots and published on its own YouTube channel. For you, we have picked out three videos, so you get an impression of how the videos can help you find the right shoe.
