Do you see the mountain as a giant snow-covered skatepark? We do, too! The all-new Escape offers traditional skateshoe styling with futuristic performance. Forum was the first to bring the look and feel of a vulcanized skate shoe to snowboarding last year, but for 2009, we went back and completely retooled this modern classic. The outsole has been slimmed down and streamlined to work perfectly with every binding. Our team rider testing resulted in an F Gel insert being built into the heel, as an extra bonus. Combining our heel-saving F Gel with the heat-moldable Level 2 liner has created a positively amazing ride from the Escape.
