ADI­DAS ACERRA $420

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S FREERIDE BOOTS -

With a per­for­mance aes­thetic and per­son­al­ity to match, the Acerra proved ca­pa­ble of han­dling high speeds and huge land­ings. Us­abil­ity of the dual Boa clo­sure was sim­ple, and testers found lit­tle need to retighten through­out the day, de­spite the ease of do­ing so. A stiff flex pat­tern and tall pro­file pro­vided am­ple edge-to-edge drive that had rid­ers rail­ing hard turns and ham­mer­ing hacks on tran­si­tion. Pres­sure points were noted by some dur­ing break-in but dis­si­pated to elim­i­na­tion with use. It’s nice to see adi­das re­fine a high-end, sup­port­ive boot that will charge hard and hold up to the stress that comes with it.

RAD: Per­for­mance per­son­al­ity that matches its sporty aes­thetic.

BAD: Some ques­tioned the sole’s dura­bil­ity, though sig­nif­i­cant degra­da­tion wasn’t noted.
