DC Boots 2011-2012

08 Jun, 2011


When it comes to designing snowboard boots, DC designers blend advancements in their snowboard boot technology with a skate inspired focus on styling.  They understand a boots true performance can only be felt when you have a seamless fit from your foot in the liner and in in the liner in the shell which you can see in their Golden Last features like smaller overall foot prints, in-step reduction, toe box volume reduction, narrowed heel cup, anatomically correct, forward lean and defined J-bars.

For the 2012 season, DC introduces two new closure systems (Constrictor Hybrid Closure System and Winch System) to hold feet firmly in place for better feel and performance.  On the higher end models, Genuine leather has been used on Status, Ceptor SE and Super Park SE this season.  Other features include Aerotech to keep the feet comfortable and fresh smelling all season.  Designers have built in molded vents that release steam through openings in the liner and shell.  An added bonus of that technology is the anti-microbial material that keeps boots from getting stinky.

DC Judge

A part of DC’s snow heritage, the Judge is back and better than ever.  Packed with features and the go-to boot for Torstein Horgmo who had this to say about the boot, “I like it because I can customize the fit but it’s still pretty soft and really comfortable for that good feel.”  Features constrictor closure system, 3D tongues, articulation, molded backstay, internal ankle harness, unilite, alpha liner.  Flex=7.
