2012 Nike Vapen Snowboard Boot Product Quick Sheet NEW
2012 Nike Vapen Snowboard Boots Preview
Nike is adding a new boot to the already sleek snowboard boot line up. Vapen translated from Swedish means “The Weapon”. Louie Vito from Dancing with the stars has been slaying with them for quite some time now. Just checkout the color ways below.
The flex of the Vapen is similar to other Nike Boots which leads us to wonder why they added another boot to the line up. Nike is marketing this boot as a park/skat style boot. You can see the little cutout section around the ankle to give a little additional flex right out of the box. The sole of the boot also looks similar to the Nike Zoom Force 1.
We look forward to trying these boots out with their full waterproof synthetic leathers, Neoprene flex notch for true broke in flex technology, Full length internal backstay to offer support on heel edge, Built on the Kaiju Boot, Full length phylon midsole with PU cushioning in the heel too keep the brusin to a minimal, Low profile Air Force 1 inspired tread with enhanced grip and board feel like a skate deck or baseless binding feel, Standard Heat moldable PE/EVA liner, Roman sandal inspired lacing harness, Neoprene toe box to keep your toenails on, and Space blanket strobel technology in liner and shell.
