The lightweight champion, the Phase boot from DC, earned its title not only because of the many features it comes with but also of its great price-performance ratio. The top performance and the small price tag won't let you find anything better in this class. Features like the reliable traditional lace closure and the comfort of the lightweight Unilite Foundation outsole make the Phase simple but far from basic.
The Foundation outsole is DC’s lightest-weight outsole. It is made entirely from Unilite material which provides essential durability, dampening, and cushioning with a drastically reduced weight. It features a traction pattern which is designed for a secure feel during both ascent and descent.
The Red liner offers pure performance in a lower cost package. It features a multi-layer construction with EVA memory foam combined with thermal regulating fleece to provide unquestionable fit and comfort, plus the proven support and hold of a classic lace closure. The snow basic insole features die-cut EVA for comfort and durability while an outer layer of moisture-wicking fabric will feel like a climate control system around your feet.
The traditional lacing is and remains one of the best and most reliable lacing systems in the snowboard boot market. Pro snowboarders still rely on the classic lacing and appreciate the precise control and easy exchange if a boot lace snaps.
Please take care to measure your feet accurately. Snowboard boots are made in either US or Mondopoint (cm) sizes.
For your Mondopoint Size, measure your larger foot in centimetres with your heel against a hard surface.
Please consider that your usual European (EU) size, may be different in a snowboard boot.
When your boots arrive, if they feel tight, don't panic! Snowboard Boots have foam liners which will wear in over time.
DC is another state of the art skate brand to come out of California. Their main focus lies on developing and producing high-quality skate shoes for all ages. In the last few years, they have ventured into snowboarding hardgoods and outerwear for men and women, something we for one are not the slightest bit mad about.
