definitely for my feets!

huge fan of burton boots... after going thru 2 pairs of rulers, thought i try a stiffer boot and these boots are awesome. super stiff with excellent ankle support without sacrificing function. i wish had these 2 years ago before i tore up my ankles. as with all burton boots, these are super comfy and warm. i've always been a fan of speed lacing... love it or hate it. you decide.

too bad i had to return these boots on the count of the boot being 1/2 size too big.

2nd pair of drivers

finally wore out my last pair of boots (04 burton drivers). loved them, so i decided to get the new version. super stiff, which i like, gives me confidence riding steep/fast. i love the speed lacing system, took me a while to figure out my preferences for the dual zones (tight top zone/looser bottom zone)so my foot wouldn't cramp. i love how stiff these are, but if you are used to soft or medium stiff boots you're in for an (uncomfortable) surprise. i would not recomend these for anybody freestyly/tweaky. if you freeride (fast,steep,deep)and want something responsive with a wider forefoot area, i highly recomend these stompers.

stiff and responsive

these boots are sweet! they are light and warm and have that stiffness that allows for easy energy transfer, thus more fun!

Incredible Boot but they pack out too quick

I am ready to buy my third pair of driver X's and i have no desire to try anything else. I go with the 10.5's and they fit perfect in the medium c60's. For the longest time burton would recommend a large binding with the 10.5 but i did not agree with them and go with the mediums. My only complaint with these boots and everything else burton makes is that they don't last as long as they should. I ride 20-30 times a year and by march of the second season on them they have packed out enough that i am ready for new ones. They start out super super stiff which i like and they eventually break down a quite bit. Most people would probably be fine with them but for me they are ready to be retired or re-sold. I recommendeded them to a few friends and they tried them out and hated them because they were too stiff. One friend took two runs and could not turn on his toes because he thought they were too stiff. He looked like a beginner on them and he threw a fit and went home on a powder day. HILARIOUS.
I would give them five stars but they pack out too quick.

I ride about 100 days a year and most boots wont last long at that pace, Burton has a great warranty department. But their gear doesn't last.

Driver X

Very stiff boot, so if that's what you're looking for all's well but I found them too stiff for my liking. It's even a bit of a chore to walk in them, they're that rigid.

Seem to be pretty durable from my experience (little bit of superficial wear on top of toes but that's it), and the laces, although looking thin, are bloody tough. You can pick spare laces up for like under $10 anyway.

Regarding comfort I wasn't that impressed. Got a lot of ache in my shins and feet (especially lead foot). I'll probably look around for something a little more mid-flex.

Vibram Sole

I'm on my second pair of these. For a season in between pairs of Driver X's I rode Ion's. I like the Ion's as I could ride them right out the box (I brake the Drivers in before riding). The only downside was the soles did not hold up to snowmobiling, hiking, and splitboarding as well as the Drivers. I have Driver's that I used for multiple seasons that have weathered the storm.

Unbeatable Boot

As far as I am concerned the Driver X is top notch. I have had mine for two years now and I have no complaints. They are actually more comfortable than most of my tennis shoes and I have no problems wearing them all day. I have also never had to worry about cold feet, even in -30 degree days. They maintain traction on any winter surface and are comfortable to hike in. If you've got big feet like me I would suggest getting a binding set that has toe caps, like the Burton Mission, built into the front strap to protect your toes and keep you from dragging. Amazing Boot! Would buy again without a second thought.

Have also been riding on drivers ( before they had the "x") and were the best. THIS year however they changed the boot entirely and they are crap. the toe box is so big Burton toe straps barely fit them, the plastic they use on the back of the boot " powerstays or whatever they call them fold over during hard turns and feel terrible. also look at the liner. really look and compare. at 350 dollars they should have a top of the liner and footbed...they are not. after 18 years of riding burton boots/ products I am done. flash over function do me no good. buyer beware.
