According to a post on TWBiz, Vans is out of the snowboard boot game for the season.
Vans informed retailers on Wednesday, June 18th, that the company would not be delivering its Fall 14 boot line because of an unexpected factory closure. We had the chance to catch up with Coalition President, Action Sports Americas and Vans, Kevin Bailey, who says the difficult decision came down to not wanting to risk putting inferior product on the market. Bailey assures that production issues have already been resolved moving forward, Vans will keep it’s “foot on the gas” in terms of marketing throughout this winter while delivering the Mountain Edition line, and that the company looks forward to delivering a full boot line for Fall ’15.
So if you were planning on getting a new pair, you’ll have to wait a year. We’re going to assume that 32, Celsius, Nike and Adidas are not that bummed. Read the whole interview with Kevin Bailey here.
