The name of the Burton Tourist could be a bit misleading for some, but rest assured that this is no boot for people that come to the mountains for a couple of turns and a lot of après ski.
The tourist is there for dedicated splitboarders and backcountry adventurers that are committed and not afraid to hike for their lines. Riders like these deserve a boot that is as dedicated and committed as they are themselves. Burton made sure that all the features are included in the development of this ultimate splitboarding boot, with innovations that improve both climbing and riding. More negative flex than any other boot in the line enhances glide in the skin track, while a heel welt adds crampon compatibility. An array of insulating features are key on pre-dawn starts or snow camp missions.
For greater rebound and durability, the Tourist features the 1:1 Firm Flex PowerUp Tongue. While an Increased Negative Flex improves glide and comfort in touring mode.
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. The Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology reduces the boot’s overall footprint in 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.
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.
NEW LIFE LINER
The NEW heat-moldable Life Liner uses lightweight materials with a more relaxed feel for high-end performance that makes all the difference during long seasons filled with hard charging days. The responsive PU tongue provides a combo of cat-like quickness and long-term resistance to breakdown, while also accommodating a better fit for all foot shapes. The Life Liner adds a level 2 footbed with ESS Support Shank, Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating and extra DRYRIDE Heat Cycle™ material for added warmth. Tuff Cuff increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel.
Vibram® EcoStep™ Rubber Outsole Design [30% Recycled]
Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight and up to 50% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe. Soft and grippy spikes dig into ice when slipping isn’t an option.

Especially for Splitboarders, the Tourist comes with a Heel Welt for Cramp-On Attachment and Rubber Ice Spikes .

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.
