Stiff out of the box—signaling a long lifespan ahead of them—these boots were light and supportive while also providing a natural feel when lapping through the park. The aggressive flex never inhibited performance, but rather encouraged it, resulting in higher ollies, more stomped landings and an overall increase in rider confidence. Plus, with a heat-moldable liner for a customizable fit, as well as a dual-BOA system for efficiency and on-the-fly adjustments, the Felix proved to be a dialed, user-friendly design. And although response and control were paramount through each turn and hit, testers did find that long days on hill resulted in the emergence of a few aches and pains.

Tested + Approved 2019 presented by

Since its inception four years ago, Tested + Approved has swiftly and proudly established itself as snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. With an endless sea of gear to choose from—bindings and boots, helmets and goggles, gloves, layers, and everything in between—it's not getting any easier to know where to spend your money when everything seems to be touted as the next great innovation in performance and technology. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word.

We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique it. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. What remains is a collection of the industry’s most proven products; all of it Tested + Approved.
