The 2023 Thirty Two snowboard boots lineup has seen a subtle further reduction of models which has been the trend in recent years.
The line is now more cohesive and functional, especially compared to how it was a few years back.
First I will take a look at any new boots for the 2022-23 season, and any 2021-22 boots that aren't returning with a 2023 model.
Then I'll place each boot into the categories where I see them fitting best and look at any notable changes to returning models.

All 2023 Thirty Two Snowboard Boots by Category
Below, I have categorized Thirty Two's 2022-23 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Thirty Two might label 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.
THIRTYTWO BEGINNER SNOWBOARD BOOTS
THIRTYTWO FREESTYLE SNOWBOARD BOOTS
THIRTYTWO ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARD BOOTS
THIRTYTWO FREERIDE SNOWBOARD BOOTS
THIRTYTWO YOUTH SNOWBOARD BOOTS
So there you have the 2023 Thirty Two snowboard boots.
Out with the Old
A few 2022 models are exiting.
The Diggers versions of the TM-2 XLT and Lashed, which were introduced in 2021 are now gone, though the new TM-2 XLT (non-diggers) does adapt some of the diggers version.
The Focus BOA is gone without any replacement.
The STW and Women's STW single BOA versions are gone, but the Double BOA versions remain.
The Hight MTB and Jones MTB aren't really gone - just redesigned as Dual BOA models.
In with the New
As mentioned the Hight MTB and Jones MTB have been replaced by their new Dual BOA selves.
Other than that just a wide version comes in for the TM-2 (lace version). So now both the lace and BOA versions of the TM-2 have wide versions.
Changes to Existing Models
Most returning models remain the same, by the looks of it, but some notable changes include:
- TM-2 Jones: Gets a new full length gaiter with lock and gaiter and the power strap has been redesigned
- TM-2 XLT: Gets new sole ("Michelin Fibrelite Outsole") - same sole that was on the 2022 diggers version of this boot
A further simplification of Thirty Two's line makes it easy to tell what the boots are for. If you were to go back to 2019's Thirty Two line, there were so many different boots! Steadily from 2020 on, they have culled the line and it makes much more sense now.
