DEELUXE Formative – Elias Elhardt signature model snowboardboot

// products

Let us present to you: the all new FORMATIVE…

For this signature model we worked close with Elias Elhardt.

The goal was to reduce the boot’s impact on the environment and to reimagine how boots are constructed—without compromising their performance. The Formative’s streamlined design requires less resources and its shell contains Rise by Bloom. Rise is a bio-based foam derived from algae harvested from compromised ecosystems. This approach leverages algae’s ability to sequester carbon while helping clean water and restore aquatic habitats.

True to Elias’s focus on relentless refinement, we aim to continually evolve the Formative, using it as a means to pioneer fresh technology that reduces our impact on the environment.
