The American Eagle Zoom Force 1 snowboarding boots will distract both friends and competitors on the slopes this winter season. Completely golden, it looks like it was inspired by the Greek messenger god Hermes who had wings on his feet to help him deliver his messages faster. All these boots are going to deliver, however, is victory.

Created by Nike in collaboration with Osamu Koyama of jewelry label Complete Technique, the American Eagle Zoom Force 1 snowboarding boots simply encase the original Zoom Force 1 boots. Koyama was ispired by Japanese anime series Saint Seiya and manga series Berserk, which he had fond memories of. In addition to its gleaming golden exterior, both boots boast a removable opal pendant at the front. Stats for Golden Boarder Gear Trending: Older & Warm
