Nike Snowboarding has come a long way since the brand rolled out its first-ever pro model snowboard boot back in 2010. That boot, designed with (and for) Danny Kass, was such a success, Nike has kept it going for three years running. Though, while the performance features of the boot have remained pretty much the same, it has been given a series of design makeovers meant to help some of the best in the business-guys like Kass—stand out atop the mountain.
Currently, the Zoom DK is available in two colorways: the bold leopard print version seen above, as well as a more modest black edition. To compliment its strong aesthetic features, the Zoom DK is loaded with features like Nike Zoom cushioning and a responsive Phylon midsole.
The boot is lined with a temperature-controlled footbed for all-day comfort, and features multi-zone tread for proper traction on the powder.
