What is special about snowboard boots?

Boot Basics

Snowboard boots are either made soft, similar to snow boats or hiking boots, but more structured and stronger, or hard like ski boots. Don't wear any other type of footwear for snowboarding, however.

Snowboard boots have built in support that helps transmit the energy created by how you move on the board. The soles are shorter than other similarly sized footwear. This reduces the possibility of toe and heel overhang.
