In a couple months people are going to be hitting the slops, so if you're a snowboarder, check out the New Balance 686 Snowboard Boot as one of the many options for winter sports gear this season.

The new boot is another collaborative effort between New Balance and snowboard company 686. The design takes on the philosophy of less is more, so this time, they've removed a few things in favor of a slicker, cleaner look. The upper utilizes 686's rugged nylon mesh as well as New Balance's heritage in sneakers as a contrast between what the two brands bring to the table. On the technical side, they've integrated absorb cushioning system in the liner, increased stability from the sole, a lighter weight and more. So far the New Balance 686 Snowboard Boot is looking impressive and should provide all the goods on the slopes. Stats for Mountain-Shredding Boarder Gear Trending: Older & Chilly
