Shaun White Snowboarding

If you're a skier, a snowboarder, or even a skateboarder, you may have heard of Shaun White. He's an American snowboarder and skateboarder. He's famous for his outlandish moves and stunts.

You never know exactly what he's going to do once he gets up on his board, but you're guaranteed a show. He's popular for riding with a regular stance, as well as a twelve and negative three degrees.

White has paired with Burton, a popular brand of snowboard gear, and he's created his own line of products, to include snowboard boots, jackets, pants, sunglasses, shirts, goggles, and so much more.

Below, you'll find just some of the snowboard boots that Shaun White has created with Burton. The colors and patterns range from black, gold, and white. These are top of the line picks for any snowboarder, and they will definitely keep your ankles, feet, and lower legs protected while up on your snowboard.

After not spending any time on a snowboard for several years, my boyfriend took a trip to North Carolina to snowboard with a buddy. He bought a pair of Shaun White snowboard boots, as well as an entire Shaun White snowboarding set, and he loved every piece he bought. As for the boots, his feet never moved as the boost kept them snuggled close. After the end of a three day weekend of non-stop snowboarding, his feet stayed dry, and they didn't hurt. The only thing that hurt after the day was done was his bum, caused by all the spills he took, but there isn't a snowboarding boot in the world that will prevent a fall while snowboarding.

So, if you think that you're interested in a nice pair of Shaun White snowboarding boots, check out the different options below. The come in both mens and womens snowboarding boots.

Choosing Snowboarding Boots

When choosing a good snowboarding boot, you want to make sure that you check the fit properly, as your snowboard boot will alter whether you have a painful time or an enjoyable time on the slopes.

You want to keep in mind the size and fit of the boot. You want to choose comfort and performance over the cosmetic features of the boot. There are several factors that you'll want to consider to include the following 7.

  1. Flex
  2. Lacing systems
  3. Materials
  4. Liners and foot beds
  5. Cosmetics
  6. Comfort and fit
  7. Price

When choosing a snowboard boot, you'll want to make sure that you bring along a pair of your snowboarding socks, because if you test the size of the boot without your proper socks, the boot may not fit properly with the socks on. Plus, you also want to consider finding the best time of day when your feet are the biggest, as your feet swell at different parts of the day; generally, it's best to try on boots toward the afternoon or evening time.

Keep in mind that with soft boots, you'll feel more toe movement, and with hard boots, you'll hardly feel any.

You want to consider the heel holding power, as you want a boot that will eliminate the heel life. You'll want to stand on your toes to see if the heel of the boot rises off the ground, and if it does, the boot is not a proper fit. You want the boot to fit snugly around your ankle.

Consider the flex of the snowboarding boot. The flex is important, as the degree of the flex is important for different styles of snowboarding. Freestyle boots are typically lower cut with loose, molded inner liners which provide more flexibility. Freeride boots typically have stiffer upper boot for more support, and they generally have an inner lace up, which allows for adjustable flex.

Hard boots support the ankle, foot, and lower leg better, which is why they're best for racing and high-speed carving on hard surfaces.

You'll also want to keep in mind the binding, materials the boot is made of, and the price of the boot. Remember if one boot doesn't fit, try a different style or brand. Not every brand or style is fit for everyone.
