Men's snowboard boot
Traditional lacing system
Flex rating 5 of 10
Whether it's your first boot, or you simply need something that gets the job done without all the expensive bells and whistles, the DC Phase Snowboard Boot will meet your demands. A memory foam liner and UniLite construction make the Phase as lightweight and comfy as boots that are twice the price. Traditional lacing is reliable and simple, and Direct Power lacing provides more leverage for optimal shell closure and a custom fit. Anatomical J-bars in the heel prevent uncomfortable, fatigue-inducing heel lift, and the Red liner features EVA foam to provide a comfy fit and a fleece lining to help your toes stay toasty. Unilite replaces rubber in the outsole to shave weight and improve cushioning without sacrificing traction.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Bought these at Sport Chalet, and saw everyones reviews about them running small, I wear a 12 and got these in a 12 and they fit 100% perfect. You want snowboard boots a little snug.. but they are so comfy and easy to get on and off compared to other boots I've worn. Can't wait to take em out this weekend!
I gave the DC Phase boot a 3 star rating after rigorous riding of about 30 days. Let me preface this review with my background. I currently work as a snowboard coach and instructor. I put in 100+ day seasons regularly and can go through equipment, especially boots, fairly quickly.
With all of that said I am impressed at the fit of these boots more so than many (much more expensive boots) that I have tried. My foot tends to be on the wider side, and the ankle cups and toe box fit well after just a few days of riding (+1 star).
I was worried about these packing out too fast and the boots did just that. There was no way I could even squeeze into a smaller half size, so I had to deal with pack out issues after about 25 days (-1 star).
These boots have a fantastic flex that has held up to the rigors of teaching and constant park abuse. I like a medium-soft boot, and the flex pattern hasn't worn yet (+1 star).
Another issue I had with the boot was...
Seriously do not trust what everyone says about buying a size up from whatever your last boot was. You have to give them time to break in (5 good sessions) the liners will pack out to a quarter and even half size. If you buy a size up they will pack out way to much you will get heal lift and toe bang and overall ruin the performance of the boot. They are supposed to feel to small right out of the box, trust me on this the liners are meant to get bigger.
