Stiffer or more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better. Burton boots come in a variety of styles for different levels of response and board feel, with terrain choices a consideration in the design of every model.
A boot’s response has to do with its stiffness. A more aggressive boot will be stiffer and allow quicker edge engagement, while a more playful boot will be softer and more forgiving.
A boot’s board feel is all about its sole. Our thinner, low-profile EST® outsoles, like on the AMB, offer maximum board feel with zero compromise in cushioning. Likewise, our ramped outsoles, found on models like the Mint put you up on the balls of your feet in a ready position for quicker edge to edge response.
Much of a boot’s terrain capability comes down to personal preference, which is why we make boots specialized for everything from riding through the park, ripping groomers, or heading out into the backcountry.
SPEED ZONE™ LACING
NEW for 2016, Speed Zone™ Lacing now features streamlined, re-profiled lace guides and jam cleats on all models (excluding the Moto and Mint) for increased performance and greater durability. The system retains lightning fast lacing control by allowing you to customize the fit of the upper and lower zone in seconds. More power means more rebound, wrap and response with less lacing effort. New England Rope laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of our Lifetime Warranty.
A BURTON SPIN ON BOA®
All Burton men’s, women’s, and youth boots with Boa® have been upgraded for 2016 with the virtually indestructible, Warrantied for Life performance of Burton-exclusive New England Rope laces. Built with a re-designed inner Coiler spool to route the laces, the dial-it-in system retains its quick, easy, and effective lace adjustment. Natural fiber ropes equal a more natural flex and feel for greater all-day comfort. Available in single and dual zone set-ups, the system quickly loosens or tightens with simple twists of the Boa® dial.
Boa® is a registered trademark of Boa Technology Inc.
NEW BOA® LOCKDOWN LACING
A Burton-exclusive upgrade to Boa®, NEW Lockdown Lacing increases heel hold by integrating three distinct lacing zones with a single crank-able dial. Tightening all zones (upper, lower and Achilles) both rapidly and simultaneously results in a secure and consistent fit throughout the boot with greater hold in the heel pocket for an overall more comfortable feel. Available in both Boa® dual zone and single zone systems.
SHRED READY VELCRO® STRAPS
Oversized and mitt-friendly so kids can get their boots on, off, and adjusted without help from mom, dad, or the instructor.
ASYM SPEED HOOKS
Allow for quicker and easier lace engagement and pulling power with redesigned hooks that help lock laces in place.
We invest more R&D hours, premium materials, and space-age technology into our Imprint™ and Infinite Ride™ liners than many companies put into their entire boot line. Burton’s latest liners reflect this three-decade heritage by delivering snowboarding’s most comfortable, warmest, performance-driven fit, right out of the box.
YOUTH IMPRINT™ LINER
IMPRINT™ 1 LINER
IMPRINT™ 2 LINER
IMPRINT™ 3 LINER
INFINITE RIDE™ 4 LINER
INFINITE RIDE™ 5 LINER
INFINITE RIDE™ LINER SERIES
Sewn liners are an industry standard, which is why we broke the mold with this stitchless technology. Built with a 3D molding process, Infinite Ride™ liners elevate out-of-the-box consistency for a precise fit while also enhancing the ride with greater rebound and cushioning that won’t break down or pack out. They are infinitely heat-moldable, too, for fine-tuning the fit on day one, this season or next. The asym Velcro® closure construction creates even better wrap at the top of the liner. Featured on the Ion.
Whether you have funky cankles or a grotesque sixth toe, your feet will be wrapped in comfort with Burton’s liners, ALL of which are heat-moldable. Ride them right out of the box or shape them to your foot with our EMU heat-molding system, found at your local shop.
Ankle support and inner cuff stability is mandatory in a pro-level boot. Our solution is the Tuff Cuff, which increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel. Featured on the Ion.
Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response.
NEW X-UP CUFF
The NEW women’s X-Up Cuff hugs the foot in an anatomical X-shaped wrap that keeps the heel comfortably locked in the pocket and subtly supports the Achilles tendon.
This super low-profile inner cuff carries the laces across the forefoot and ankle for ultimate heel hold with effortless entry and exit.
PLUSH CUFF 1.0
The Plush Cuff 1.0 hugs your calf like no other thanks to a combination of medial and lateral neoprene stretch zones and a super soft fur lining. Featured on the NEW Limelight and Emerald.
PLUSH CUFF 2.0
The Plush Cuff 2.0 steps to the next level with a separate cuff that wraps the bottom of your calf and stretches to fit a greater range of shapes and sizes.
POWER PANEL TECHNOLOGY
To ensure a consistent flex from day 1 to 100, Burton Imprint™ liners feature strategically placed Power Panels that, even after being deeply flexed, return to their original position.
J-BAR ADJUSTABLE HEEL HOLD SYSTEM
Infinite Ride™ 4, Infinite Ride 5, and Imprint™ 3 liners have a Velcro® J-Bar interface in the heel pocket of the inner cuff for added support. J-Bars are available through your dealer as a spare part or by calling Burton Rider Services.
Located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure, these durable printed panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
INNER LACE LOCK
Quick-lock design keeps your heels locked down all day. Exiting’s a cinch with the one-handed release tab. Featured on all Burton liners.
This directional fiber lining located in the heel pocket of Imprint 3™ and higher liners allows your feet to easily slide into place, and stay in place all day.
DRYRIDE HEAT CYCLE™ LINING
Warmth and wicking are two key traits for on-snow comfort. Our breathable inner-lining technology utilizes interwoven thermally activated carbon thread to capture, radiate, and reflect body heat inward to keep feet warmer while also wicking heat-robbing moisture outward for all day comfort.
POWERED BY 3M™ THINSULATE™ INSULATION
Twice as warm as other insulations of equal thickness, it provides warmth even when wet. Featured on the youth Grom boot and on all Imprint™ 2 liners.
To keep up with kid’s constant growth spurts, the Room-To-Grow™ footbed allows you to gain one full size. Rather than buy new boots every season, simply remove the footbed when the fit becomes snug. A secondary, integrated footbed means there’s no compromise in cushioning or support.
AEGIS™ ANTIMICROBIAL COATING
Inhibits foul odors. Your feet [and your friends] will thank us. Look for Aegis™ on select liners and footbeds.
One flat landing can lead to two sore feet and one ruined day. It doesn't add up. That’s why we continuously search for ways to keep your soles stoked even after hours of on-hill action.
EST® goes beyond bindings by drawing inspiration from the surf/skate heritage of snowboarding and giving you a more direct connection to your board. By eliminating the ramp angle of your outsole, EST lowers your center of gravity, improves board feel, and creates a more surf/skate-like feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening ReBounce and B3 Gel inserts.
This Burton-exclusive brings cushioning closer to your foot than ever before by placing it within the shell of the boot for an added layer of impact protection that sits directly below your foot. Added warmth and consistent performance in cold temperatures is achieved by wrapping it in a heat-reflective material that keeps the cushioning soft and effective. Featured on the Ion, Concord Boa® and AMB.
Superior cushioning, improved board feel, and consistent support in a 20% lighter weight construction. Made entirely of an exclusive cushioning compound specially formulated to withstand repeated impacts and freezing temps for long lasting shock absorption.
NEW DYNOBITE OUTSOLE
In addition to ReBounce which wraps the cushioning in heat-reflective foil to keep it cushy and effective in cold weather, the DynoBITE outsole features an extra layer of traction at the forefoot and heel for greater grip. Like every Burton Dyno outsole, DynoBITE provides lightweight, durable cushioning that’s formulated specifically for snowboarding.
In addition to B3 Gel in the heel for greater cushioning, the DynoGRIP outsole features an extra layer of traction at the toe and heel for greater grip. Like every Burton Dyno outsole, DynoGRIP provides lightweight, durable cushioning that’s formulated specifically for snowboarding.
Dual-density EVA allows your foot to settle into a more natural and relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control.
The PodBED outsole on the women's Supreme boot was designed in tandem with the Escapade EST's PodBED cushioning, but enhances comfort with any binding. Targeted stiffness and dual density EVA foam balances response with dampening, a gel heel absorbs impact, and a rubber toe/heel ensures a lightweight grip.
Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption.
Add cushion to hardpack landings or squeeze into boots a half-size too small with our aftermarket solution for performance fits or foot fatigue.
VIBRAM® ECOSTEP™ & ECOSTEP™ PLUS OUTSOLES
Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a 50% recycled construction (ECOSTEP™ Plus) or 30% recycled construction (ECOSTEP™). ECOSTEP™ features B3 Gel heel cushioning, while ECOSTEP™ Plus features the additional warmth and impact performance of ReBounce cushioning.
RUBBER ICE SPIKES
Soft and grippy with stiffer spikes that dig into ice when slipping isn’t an option.
Start strong, stay strong. That’s S4. Super light and resilient, these shell panels on the Imperial evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex, season after season.
WISHBONE UPPER CUFF
The Wishbone Cuff defies convention, combining power and freedom into one. Picking up where the Crossbone Cuff left off, it features Jumper Cables on both the medial and lateral sides for twice the snap, rebound, and life without sacrificing the high tweakability of a softer boot. Featured on the Concord Boa®, AMB, and AMB Smalls.
Allowing the upper and lower zones of the boot to flex independently creates fluid forward motion, minimizes shell distortion, and maximizes heel hold and response.
These strategically placed notches minimize shell distortion and allow for a smoother, more fluid toe and heelward flex.
1:1 3D® MOLDED TONGUE
Boot and tongue should fit perfectly together as one, which is why we’ve integrated the 1:1 3D® molded tongue into the majority of our men’s boots for 2016. The result is an anatomical match for every half and full-size boot—providing a better wrap and eliminating frustrating readjustment of oversized or undersized tongues. Look for soft, medium, or firm flexing options throughout the line.
1:1 WOMEN’S-SPECIFIC TRUE FIT™ TONGUE
Every woman’s boot deserves a perfect match, which is why we’ve reshaped our tongues for a 1-to-1 fit for each available size. The ladies-only result is an anatomical match for the specific creases and curvatures of every foot—providing a better wrap and eliminating frustrating readjustment of oversized or undersized tongues when lacing them up.
For greater rebound and durability, the majority of our boots feature this dual density tongue construction. Like all our Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongues, it’s available in one of three flex options based on the boot.
Snugging up the fit between boot and hi-back, our rubber print backstays also shave weight and enhance material-to-material grip. The result of this printed rubber application is more direct energy transfer from boot to binding to board for reduced rider fatigue.
POWER SPINE BACKSTAY
Allow for fine-tuned medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response, and durability.
FLEX SPINE BACKSTAY
Get effortless medial and lateral mobility with ample edge-to-edge support for when it’s time to throw down the landing gear.
TOTAL COMFORT CONSTRUCTION
Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort’s industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100.
Burton offers 1:1 lasting on every boot. It means every half and full size liner gets a matching half and full size shell, tongue, and outsole for a precise fit that is not as common as one would think. Drop your loot on a Burton boot and you won’t be stuck with the slop of a mismatched shell and liner.
WOMEN’S-SPECIFIC TRUE FIT™ DESIGN
Enjoy a more harmonious connection with Burton’s True Fit™ women’s boards, boots, and bindings. True Fit means that every element—from boot liners to lace guides, baseplate to strap designs, board shapes to flex profiles—has been designed and engineered for the way women ride. Because when it fits right, it rides better.
TRUE FIT™ CUSTOM CUFF
This one-of-a-kind, women’s-specific cuff automatically fine-tunes the fit of the upper boot around your body geometry. The result is an even truer True Fit™ for calves of all shapes and sizes, eliminating potential pressure points to improve comfort and warmth. Exclusive to the Supreme™.
This low-profile and lightweight underfoot technology reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions. SHRINKAGE™ FOOTPRINT REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY
You know what they say about guys with big feet, right? Big socks. Shrinkage™ reduces the boot’s overall footprint one full size, meaning a men’s size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker—never suffer from toe drag again.
OUTER SHELL PRESSURE RELIEF PANEL
Ultra-soft cushioning is fused to the area where the ankle strap rests on the boot for even pressure distribution when bindings are cranked tight.
SNOW-PROOF INTERNAL GUSSET
All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
