The new favorite of Dan “Danimals” Liedahl, who loved the Hybrid system but wanted it on a more playful boot, the Implant snowboard boot in Dan's new colorway is inspired by the design of the '90s-grunge-meets-the-outdoor-workboot—complete with a snake drawing he created himself for both the label and the heel of the boot. As the more lean and clean cousin of the Infuse, the Implant snowboard boot offers a streamlined construction as host to a fully-loaded features package. The Vans Hybrid Boa® Closure System caters to both snowboarders who have been riding laces all their life and riders who have been faithful to the Boa® wheel since its inception, while the Custom Slide Guide provides an adjustable fit anywhere along the instep area for added comfort and heel hold. In addition, the Reach Around cuff strap attached to the inside shell of the boot allows snowboarders the choice of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue, providing a custom fit. The Implant also features an internal wrap harness for a more personalized fit, Waffleflex outsoles for lightweight performance, heat-moldable Response liners for a nailed-in fit with precision response, and dual-density UltraCush V2 Footbeds for mechanical support and dampening. The Implant is made with synthetic leather and textile uppers.
