Stop messing around with soft boots.

If you're on the prowl for a super stiff, seriously powerful boot that won't wuss out on hair-raising big mountain lines, stop prowling. You found the Burton Men's Driver X Snowboard Boot. This is Burton's stiffest, most supportive boot. Burton designed the Driver X with a Supercuff heel-hold system to lock down the back of your foot for better performance whether you're hiking or holding your toe edge around a backcountry boulder. On frosty morning ascents, the Vibram EcoStep sole gives you tons of traction to kick steps. When you're flying down a hanging snowfield, the Powershell reinforcement panels support like crazy. Burton also includes Dual Zone B3 Gel Cushioning to take the bite out of landings when you drop a 40-footer.**DISCONTINUED**

Great Boot...but...

These are great boots and easy to get in and out of...over time, however, it became difficult to get the secure tight fit on the lower end of the boot as the boots seemed to pack out too much (and I only ride about 2 or 3 times per year). Maybe it was just the ones that I had...

I wanted to love these...

...but it just didn't work out between us.

I would definitely suggest trying them on before purchasing. The stiffness is completely awesome, responsive and bully.

The fit is good -- tight on the heel, solid around the ankle. But the toes are where I ran into trouble.

Maybe it's Burton's Shrinkage Tech or whatever, but I got these in a 13 -- which I normally wear -- and after a full day on the mountain, my toes felt like they were being squeezed in a vice. It was excruciating. I couldn't walk once I got to the lodge. I would have traded for a size up, but I got them on clearance and they were out of 14s.

So, great boot if you get the right size, I guess. Just beware.

Very good backcountry boots

Just as the other reviewers said, they are very stiff, pretty easy to tighten (putting them on is another story though, almost harder to do than for alpine skiing boots). They fit true to size in my opinion, at least compared to other burtons, and are nicely shaped so that my toes don't stick out to much even for my big feet. The Vibram sole is definitely a plus when you need to hike to the summit. Haven't been wearing them that much yet but they seem durable.

Love the Fit

I was looking for a stiff boot and these are pretty stiff. They fit good and are really comfortable. The liners come out easily so I can dry them completely and fit back in with no problem. The only thing I'm concerned about is the lacing system, while it works now, I've heard that if the lace breaks the local shop charges $45 to relace it. That would suck. I guess if it only happens once during the entire life of the boots, it wouldn't be that bad. So far, I'm stoked with these boots. I used to ride hard boots with Trenchdigger bindings and was looking for a stiff soft boot to give me similar edge control, this boot fits the bill better than any other I've tried.

Best yet

Finding stiff boots has always been a task. Other than using AT boots this is the best way to go! They are for Freeride now Freestyle so your not going to like them if you go into the park or ride groomers. I wear a size 14 but they only go to 13 and a 13 works just a little tight on the big toe. They fit true to size i would say

Great Boots

These boots fit snugly and the lacing system allows a great deal of adjustment. They're pretty stiff, but I could even be stiffer for forward lean, IMO. I think the inner lining could use velcro at the top to add to the stiffness, as it's hard to get the inner lining tight enough. Seem to be well constructed, but I've only used them about 5 or 6 times, so can't say yet for sure. Nice gear, I recommend them.

Driver X

If you want a stiff boot that is easy to ride then you found it. This boot is very comfortable once broken in. It allows easy weight shift for fast quick turns. This is the best boot that I have ever put on my feet. I ride all over the mountain from the park to the backcountry. It does it all well.

Buyer Beware

If you don't know what you want, don't get these. If you have to ask yourself if the Drivers are a fit for you, they're likely not. In fact, if you are the kind of person who would love these boots, you are likely not even reading this. A common mistake is for people to just look at the pricetag and determine whether a boot is "good" or not, instead of analyzing the attributes. Don't get me wrong, these are amazing if what you want (and you need to know exactly what you want) is INSTANT response and ultra-stiffness in your boots, and it serves a certain segment. For the rest of us though, it might be better to stick with boots that have some flex at the ankle.

Stiff and Uncomfortable

Incredibly uncomfortable. The tongue dug into the top of my ankle. I bought a half size small and that still did not help with heel lift and movement.

Responded on

I am an older rider who likes to go fast on the groomers and sometimes beat myself up in the deep powder I weigh 220 and put a lot of force into my turns. Recently on a trip to Alaska I noticed the heel in my driver X boots lifting on a toe edge at high speed (very uncomfortable feeling) as loss of control translates into the prospect for a mighty crash. I find the lacing system has limits and has reached the max in terms of its ability to keep my heel locked in tight. I am 60 plus in age and dislike face plants and tomahawking so I will be looking to a BOA system. The boots are about 2 years old and seem to be loosing their fit. I will try a heel lift or other support mechanism. Cheers.

Fing Awesome

Super comfortable, super stiff, the best boots I've ever owned. They are worth the money, you can ride all day with these and not even feel it. And the speed lace system is awesome.

Somebody Sliped These Boots Viagra

These boots are sick, stiff, and ready for some all day long action. I am very impressed with the comfort with these boots, Burton really hit a home run here. The whole boot is super stiff, even the sole isn't movable by human force. I had to have the liners molded twice and use toe caps to get a little more room at the end of the boot. I suggest making sure whoever molds them cooks them one at a time, otherwise you'll end up with one which won't mold properly. Unless of course you can break the speed of sound putting them on. Speaking of that, after getting used to the speed lace system I may be able to do just that. Unlike the other review I didn't have to size down, but the do seem to fit the same as other Burton boots. They are quite narrow and my duck feet were screaming the first few days, even after the heat mold, but after packing the are fine.

Best Boots EVER

I bought these for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves these boots. They are probably the stiffest on the market and they don't seem like they will pack out any time soon.

Great Boots

These boots are really comfortable. The quick-lace system makes it a breeze to put on and tighten up.

Super Comfy For A Stiff Boot

This boot is super stiff but unlike other stiff boots I have had it is not uncomfortable at all. I did have to use the included ankle pads to get the liner to fit on my right foot. Now that the pads are in there the liners fit like a glove. I did have to size down a 1/2 size to get the right fit. They were tight at first but now that the liners have packed out after around 15 days they are perfect.
