Since releasing its first shoe nearly 40 years ago, Nike has made its mark as an iconic footwear label. Not surprisingly, the brand quickly gained a following with its snowboard line. If you can make a snowboard boot half as well as a top performing basketball hightop, people are going to want to wear them. The ITES is nothing short of a moon boot, scratch that, the boot actually features space blanket strobal technology in the liner and shell. While your airtime might not exactly equate to antigravity, these boots will be as good as locked to your foot with the Articulating Flywire Cuff, which is made from neoprene and features a zonal tightening Webbing lace system. For added comfort and support, this boot also has cushy Zoom Air in the midsole and a 3-D molded upper to contour your foot. It also has an Adjustable flex system, so that you can choose from three different levels of stiffness. Best of all, the boot incorporates Nike’s latest and greatest multi-sport invention, Free Technology for increased board feel.
