adidas Originals Snowboard Boot

Old School
Back in the day when adidas owned the Salomon Group they had all kinds of access to all kinds of crazy things. These are a pair of adidas Snowboard boots modelled after the adidas Originals Forum mid sneaker, one of the best sneakers to get down in back in the day. The boot was most likely derived from a Salomon boot platform, but all the styling goes to adidas Originals. 50 pairs were created for VIPs and friends of adidas, with no other pairs expected to be made after that.

Nike Snowboarding Zoom Kaiju Boot

Kaiju is the Future
Next season’s boot offering from Nike Snowboarding looks to be promising with the introduction of their second model, the Zoom Kaiju. This is a more technical style boot compared to their initial Zoom Force 1, and offers a host of new features. The most notable being a Nike Free sole with zoom air cushioning, which gives better feel and better impact resistance. A one piece TPU backing in the rear helps prevent wear and tear from binding crunch, while offering greater flex front-to-back. The boots will come in four colorways and retail for $350 USD. Available in 09/10.
