Quickly becoming known for contributions to snowboard culture far beyond her timeless style and decimation of street spots worldwide, Kennedi Deck’s love for snowboarding runs deep—complementing her milestone video parts by becoming a voice for the queer snowboard community and inspiring many to be their true, unapologetic selves. As a part of Kennedi’s pursuit for inclusivity, she has united her passions and inspired Vans Snow to continue the momentum with its first-ever non-binary pro rider colorway. Elevating her interpretation of the Hi-Standard OG to take a genderless approach, with features like our V1 UltraCush™ liner, V1 POPCUSH™ footbed, and V1 Waffle Lug outsole, Kennedi’s Hi-Standard OG is bringing you a combination of dynamic support and unfiltered boardfeel with unrestricted mobility. It is made with textile and synthetic materials.
