Product Details - 2012 686 Men's Times New Balance 790 Snowboard Boots
Redesigned and re-engineered for its second season, the 790 is much more than an entry level snowboard boot. Originally released in 1986 and officially endorsed by the Laker’s James Worthy, 686 has redesigned New Balance’s classic basketball silhouette into a fully functional snowboarding boot. Complete with a compact outsole and low midsole design for closer board and binding contact, the 790 is your go-to boot for overall free riding conditions.
