The following is a quick overview of the 2022 Vans snowboard boots lineup.
First I'll cover any new boots for the 2021-22 season, and then any old 2020-21 boots that aren't returning with a 2022 model.
Then I'll place each boot into the categories where I see them best fitting.
New 2022 Vans Snowboard Boots
The new boots for 2021-22 are:
Exiting 2021 Vans Snowboard Boots
The 2021 boots that aren't returning with a 2022 model:
All 2022 Vans Snowboard Boots by Category
Below I have organized Vans's 2021-22 collection into categories. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Vans might categorize them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every boot is different and can often be used for more than one of these categories.
VANS BEGINNER SNOWBOARD BOOTS
VANS FREESTYLE SNOWBOARD BOOTS
VANS ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARD BOOTS
VANS FREERIDE SNOWBOARD BOOTS
VANS YOUTH SNOWBOARD BOOTS
So there you have the 2022 Vans snowboard boots.
A bit of a decimation of the women's line but outside of that no big changes
Out with the Old
In the catalog it looked like the Ferra Pro and Viaje were gone without replacement but the catalog fortunately wasn't accurate. The Viaje is still there and the Ferra Pro is replaced by the Luna Ventana Pro.
In with the New
The new entry for 2022 is the Baldface. The Luna Ventana Pro also comes in but is essentially a replacement for the outgoing Ferra Pro.
Changes to Existing Models
- Infuse: Gets a waterproof zipper shroud to cover the lower part of the boot. Also looks to have less articulation in the cuff, which in Vans speak translates to removal (or maybe just reduction) of the "Instep Flex Zone"
The rest of the returning models look to be same as far as I can tell.
