You won't always find the best product in the highest price bracket. The minds and feet behind the Vans Hi-Standard Snowboard Boot apparently didn't feel it was necessary to charge extra for almost 20 years of innovation and time-proven performance. The Hi-Standard meets the standards of the 100-day riders, resort parking lot attendants, and aspiring rippers looking to get their feet wet (not literally, though). The traditional lacing system features double-posted gripping lace hooks that prevent the laces from slipping so your boots stay tight from first run to last. A heat-moldable V1 UltraCush liner gives nailed-in heel hold and the cushy feel of soft interior cushioning foam. An internal web harness keeps your heel locked down for superior response and less fatigue, and a heat-retaining temperature shield that reflects body heat back to your feet for extra warmth without added weight. The V1 UltraCush footbed features high-rebound impact relief pads at both the forefoot and heel to absorb harsh impacts and smooth out vibrations in choppy terrain. It's finished off with a Reverse Waffle outsole that's made with EVA to reduce weight while improving cushioning, and strategically-placed rubber in the most high-wear area ensures long-lasting durability and traction.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
