The Burton Imperial channels more than 30 years of boot-building expertise into the most bang ever for your hard-earned buck. Its high-end SLX-inspired performance includes S4 shell panels to keep the flex consistent, lightweight Vibram® EcoStepx™ Rubber Outsole for added grip, footprint reducing Shrinkage™, plus an EST® chassis with B3 Gel cushioning for ultimate board feel. Total Comfort delivers a broken-in feel right out of the box, while Sleeping Bag heat-reflective foil defies cold weather. With a flex that sits at the sweet spot between the Ion and Concord, this is the high-performance all-terrain boot you’ve been searching for.
Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort is an exclusive construction that eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100.
The Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology reduces the boot’s overall footprint in one full size, meaning 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. All Burton boot tongues feature a snow-proof internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry. EST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, the EST Midsole lowers your centre of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts. B3 Gel is the ultimate dampening that’s formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps. S4 Shell Panels are super light and resilient, they evenly distribute strap pressure. This is combined with the firm flexing 1:1 PowerUP Tongue for maximised rebound and a consistent flex, season after season. Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight and 30% recycled construction. The Vibram® EcoStep™ Rubber Outsole includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.
The heat-moldable Imprint™3 Liner comes with a Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank and antimicrobial coating. Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response. Find the perfect fit with the adjustable Hook-and-Loop Liner Closure.
Strong and low-profile, Speed Zone™ Lacing features lightning-fast lacing control while 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 Burton's Lifetime Warranty.
Please take care to measure your feet accurately. Snowboard boots are made in either US or Mondopoint (cm) sizes.
For your Mondopoint Size, measure your larger foot in centimetres with your heel against a hard surface.
Please consider that your usual European (EU) size, may be different in a snowboard boot.
When your boots arrive, if they feel tight, don't panic! Snowboard Boots have foam liners which will wear in over time.
