The 10 Best Women’s Snowboard Boots of 2022-2023

By: Brittany Mellander: Assistant Snowboard Buyer | September 20, 2022

 

Buying new snowboard boots isn't always a top priority in making your snowboard setup complete, but it should be. Whether you're in the park, just getting started or an all mountain rider, having responsive women's snowboard boots will help you initiate each move more efficiently. Isolated lacing systems will allow you to create more response or more play wherever you need it. Heat moldable liners will make your boots fit just right for those first days on the hill. By having an array of options, you can find the boot that is right for you. Whether you prefer a double Boa that will lock you in with a twist and push or traditional lace boots with an ankle Boa to keep your heel locked down all day, the possibilities are endless, and the discomfort is absent.

New This Year:

Finding the best women’s snowboard boots for your feet that give you the best fit and flex with all the features you need, the rewards will be constant; less movement in your boot for better transition toe to heel, and most importantly comfort and support for an amazing day on the mountain.

    Hi, I’m Tommy from evo with our picks for the best snowboard boots of 2023. A new Season of snowboarding boots is upon us. In this video we’ll discuss some of the best boots we think are worth checking out. Brands are adding more double boa boots to their lineup to meet rider demand for simple adjustment and easy mornings in the parking lot. Heat moldable liners are also pretty much standard in mid to high-end snowboard boots. We recommend visiting a boot fitter and getting the boots that fit you best. So hit that like button and let's get into it! The K2 Hanford Snowboard Boots bring atomic power to the slopes. They’re all about solid, all-mountain performance thats comfortable right out of the box. Constructed with a mid stiff flex and super customizable fit, your heel will stay locked in place allll day. Along with a dual zone boa, Liner laces provide a third point of customization so you can pressure your edges and lay out deep carves without your feet sliding around. All in all, the Hanford is a great everyday boot for those looking to get serious about their riding. According to our bootfitters, K2 tends to run wider in the toe box while fitting true to size in the heel. If this sounds like you, put these on your short list. Next on the list is the DC Transcend Snowboard Boots. They’re extra stiff and have the DC style you love, for aggressive everyday riding. Beyond its super tweakable double boa, the Transcend features a STORMPROOF™ Storm Flap, which zips over the top of your foot to keep out water. Vibram outsoles provide grip and SUPER FABRIC™ adds longevity for season after season of riding hard. Inside, 3M Thinsulate insulation provides warmth. Plus, a harness hugs your ankle and heel to provide support and lock you in. We recommend the DC Transcend Snowboard Boots for riders looking to push their limits. With a stiff flex, customizable liner, and double boa for a secure hold, these boots are one of our faves. The Vans Encore Pro Snowboard Boots are best-selling all-rounders that offer great fit out of the box. Their versatile performance for both freeriding and freestyle makes them the preferred choice for women who can do it all and do it well. Now with a Smartwool insulated UltraCush V2 liner and All-Trac rubber soles for warmth and security, the Encore Pros have the classic Vans look with all the performance you deserve. Salomon Echo Dual Boa Snowboard Boots Next up is the Salomon Echo Dual Boa Snowboard Boots. All new for the Twenty-Twenty three season, the Echo is a stiff, powerful boot for aggressive riders that want great response. They feature Mountain GOAT and Contagrip® outsoles that provide long-lasting durability and traction. Whether you’re an advanced rider looking to get the newest tech or just want a pair of boots that will last, the Salomon Echo Dual Boa is one to watch. Made with eco friendly materials and sleek neutral colors, these are awesome boots that anyone can get behind. The Thirty Two STW Double Boa Snowboard Boots connect you to your bindings with maximum comfort and minimal drama. We love this boot for how affordable it is, but also how it offers a performance fit for less experienced riders. A quick pull internal lacing system makes it easy to get on the mountain quickly, and a comfort harness keeps your feet securely in place while you’re honing your skills. With a soft flex, the STW is extra forgiving when you fall. We think everyone deserves a quality fit and sturdy boot no matter what their price point is. The Thirty Two STW Double Boa proves that good things do come in small packages! The K2 Trance Snowboard Boots are all about solid, all-mountain performance. They accomplish this task with a mid-stiff flex pattern and top-notch heel hold. K2 has placed a premium on durability, so this boot is built to last. For riders who go hard on their gear, this one’s for you! K2 put a tough rubber outsole on high stress areas like the toe, so you can kick snow off your board to your heart's content. Harshmellow™ dampening softens your ride underfoot. The Trance is perfect for intermediate to advanced riders who find themselves in need of repairs more than once a season. Do yourself a favor and Strap into the Trance, we think you’ll be hooked. Alright, those are the boots to look out for!

    Brittany Mellander

    Hey everyone I’m the Assistant Snowboard Buyer here at evo! Like many in the industry, I've always been active. Growing up on the beaches of Southern California, skating and surfing were a part of my life, so when I picked a snow sport at the age of 8, snowboarding was a no-brainer! I always enjoyed boarding but really found my passion for it in college where I joined the ski & snowboard club spending most weekends and holidays going up to Big Bear and MT High. After college, I enjoyed the ski bum life for a year in Mammoth as a lift operator before an injury cut my time there short. Shortly after, I found myself with the opportunity to move up to Washington to be closer to the mountains and nature.

    About 7 years ago when I first moved up here I knew with my background that working in a ski and snowboard shop was the right move. I was a snowboard sales associate at a shop for about 3 years before joining the evo Seattle store. There I helped train snowboard department new hires and honed my bootfitting skills. I most recently joined the snowboard buying team last October and love that I’ve landed a career in snowboarding and still have the opportunity to get plenty of days on the hill!
