Decathlon Dreamscape Endzone 2022 Review by The Good Ride
Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Excellent Flex Retention, Adjustability, heel hold and comfort for a boot this price.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Poor traction with no rubber on the sole.
The Decathlon Dreamscape Endzone has poor traction but everything else is really well done. Especially adjustability, heel hold and boot longevity.

I would go 1 full US size smaller than the actual size with the Decathlon Dreamscape Endzone. For example I’m a true size 9 and the size 8 US fit’s me perfectly. It fits just like a size 9 US Burton boot. If you run on the wider side like I do at an E width this will be comfortable. No need to heat mold to make room on the sides like I have to do with many boots.
There is really good construction happening here and I love the large amount of neoprene at the ankle to allow this to naturally flex. It also retains the flex longer. I am a little worried about all that Neoprene allowing water to soak in but I didn’t experience any issues walking in wet slushy snow.
I love the lace tightener in the middle and the BOA for extra ankle/heel hold. The Decathlon Dreamscape Endzone laces seem to be pretty durable and I like the smaller but thicker lace.
Pretty good mediumish turn initiation that seems like it can do more response wise than just being a park boot.
This is the one part I wish Decathlon would fix. No one likes EVA only soles. It is fine in softer snow but a nightmare in harder snow. This is a deal breaker for me and might also be a deal breaker for many others as well. I would really like to see them add rubber to the sole.
Shock Absorption/Board Feel
It might not have traction but it sure has good shock absorption. Definitely upper tier shock absorption and it’s really good at off landings slow speed which is my specialty 😉
Footprint vs. Warmth
So in a size 8 US that fits exactly like my size 9 the Decathlon Dreamscape Endzone has a very reduced footprint. It is very close to my Vans Baldface, Vans Infuse & Burton Kendo in a size 9. All boots fit my foot about the same when it comes to foot length.
Pretty easy on and off. The BOA system is a little different. It doesn’t pop in or out like most BOA. It is righty tighty/lefty loosey. Twist it right to tighten and twist a little left to release the BOA. I had no issues with this.
So if the Decathlon Dreamscape Endzone Boot had some rubber on the sole it would be a very recommendable boot. If you can get past the poor traction everything else about this boot is really well done.
