Hailing from Salt Lake City, Sam Taxwood was surrounded by the best
resorts, street spots, and all-mountain terrain in the world. From the Wasatch backcountry to the rail gardens, Sam’s diverse brand of snowboarding is the direct result of riding some of the most iconic locales. So it only made sense that Sam chose the new Hi-Country & Hell-Bound boot to match his flexible style. Packed with our new V3 UltraCush® with The North Face™ FlashDry™ liner, V3 POPCUSH™ footbed, V3 UltimateWaffle outsole, a waterproof zip-up shroud, and Vans Flex Control System, the Hi-County & Hell-Bound is an extremely versatile, high-performance boot that can be adjusted on the fly and thrive in a variety of conditions. Couple that with a Standard winter snow boot and a Mid-Slip MTE SF shoe and you have a pack that performs in anything ... so you can give it your everything.
Equally inspired by the terrain-transition riding of Vans snow team rider Sam Taxwood and the Hank Williams, Jr. classic outlaw country song “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound”, the all-new, ground-up build of the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound snowboard boot is designed to help you take your lace closure-preferred shred game to the next level.
