Of course there are still riders out there who prefer the fit and function of a traditional closed toe boot. For the past 2 seasons we have made adjustments to the Shift boot, to give a snug and supportive traditional boot feel. For 2015, we have added softer internal foam, to give a much more marshmallow feel when fitting the boot. The Dual Quick Cinch lace system allows for customizable tightness in the upper and lower lace zones, meaning you can have a firm hold over the top of your foot and looser around the ankle, or vice versa. We have also added additional lateral support to provide a supportive feel without sacrificing forward flexion. The Shift features our new Low Pro plate that puts the rider closer to the deck of the board for maximum feel and control. It is also our lightest plate design to date. All in all, the Shift has everything a boot needs in a supportive, lightweight and value package.
