The following is a quick overview of the 2023 Vans snowboard boots lineup.
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 boots into the categories where I see them fitting best.

All 2023 Vans Snowboard Boots by Category
Below, I have categorized Vans's 2022-23 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Vans might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every boot is different, but this is a rough guide.
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 2023 Vans snowboard boots.
Out with the Old
The Baldface is gone, which isn't a big surprise given that the Freeride range was getting a little crowded, with the Vans Range Edition coming in.
In with the New
Speaking of the Verse Range Edition, it's one of 2 new entries into Vans lineup for 2022/2023. The Range Edition of the Verse has an "Adaptive Range Mode" mechanism which gives you more range of motion for hiking in them.
The other new entry is the women's One and Done, which is great to see in the lineup. It's the equivalent of the Men's Infuse with a couple of small differences (see top of post for more details on those small differences).
Changes to Existing Models
Most models are returning unchanged, but there seems to have been a couple of tweaks to a couple of models, including:
- Infuse, Viaje, Verse and Hi-Country & Hell Bound: All get Vans' new "V3 Superenduro Waffle Outsole with All-Trac" in place of the "V3 Ultimate Waffle outsole" that was on the '22 model. The new One & Done and Verse Range Edition also features this new sole. These soles feature Van's new "all-trac" which is a rubber compound which, from what I can tell, is supposed to improve grip performance in colder temperatures.
- Aura Pro, Hi-Standard Pro, Encore Pro, Invado Pro: The outsoles on these models also now feature "All-Trac".
