It all starts with K2's This Grips!™ outsole - two different densities of rubber are strategically placed to ensure the best possible grip for the parking lot and the boot pack. A full-EVA midsole is backed with K2's impact-resistant Harshmellow™ material, helping to reduce vibration and mellow out the harshest of landings. Less vibration of the ankle means that your feet feel comfortable and fresh all day long. Inside, K2's multi-density Control Foam liner features heat-moldable foam from Intuition®. As an industry leader, Intuition® foam is lightweight, durable, warm, and has an excellent memory - meaning that it molds to the shape of your foot and stays that way. This is wrapped in K2's 3-point harness - snuggly holding your ankle in place for stability and reducing heel lift for ultimate board control.
K2's patented Endo™ Construction keeps this snowboard boot extremely lightweight. Replacing a traditional heel counter of the boot with an injected poly material allows us to change the flex and rebound of the Hanford without adding extra weight. Endo™ construction helps retain the boot's flex over its lifetime and adds an extra layer of durability.
A dual-zone BOA® Fit System allows users to adjust the upper and lower of the snowboard boot independently of each other, fitting more foot shapes than a standard single-BOA® boot normally would. Lastly, the Hanford sports a lace cover to keep your laces safe from the edge of your board and whatever else might come into play.
