“The most exciting part of the new Verse was the opportunity to collaborate
with The North Face.” — Blake Paul, “Backcountry Prince”
and Vans global snow team rider
Vans and The North Face worked on an edition of the Vans Verse all-mountain performance snowboard boot to create a 2018/19 edition in a new signature color for Blake Paul, known to many as the “Backcountry Prince” of snowboarding. The double Boa performance snowboard boot is engineered with The North Face’s moisture management fabric technology, creating snowboarding’s first FlashDry equipped boot.
“The colorway was directly inspired by vintage hiking boots. Adding a hint of purple felt like a good way to stand apart,” said Paul.
The boot features TNF Flashdry Ultracush V3 liner, Custom focus plus closure system, Vans Flex Control System, V3 Ultimate Waffle Outsole, Heat Rentention 360° Technology and a complete moisture management system. The new colorway will also be available on Vans Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX, and on TNF Davenport pullover, Balfron jacket, and Slashback backcountry pack. Photos courtesy Vans x The North Face
