Burton Hail Boots
Very light and extremely comfortable (after breaking them in). Normally spend between 8-12 hours in my boots either hiking or strapped in and never felt any discomfort besides the two to three day break-in period.

Hey, i need to know about the restricted part. I noticed that some burton bindings have restricted in their name. Do you have to wear a restricted boot with a restricted binding or will it work with the 2011 cartel bindings? (thats what i ride)
restricted just means they are a sort of special edition that only certain burton dealers get. they'll work with your cartels
light and comfy
i first tired these on when my friend got them and wow were they comfortable compared to my shaun whites. they were light and i actually ran in them which shaun whites are pretty stiff. i got the last pair of 8.0 which 8.5 would have been better. great pricing right now my friend got his for $250 take advantage of this discount guys its great boots..
oh fast shipping as always

Does anyone have any thoughts on this boot with Union Forces? If you don't think they will work well, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks
They will work great. The Restricted Hail is awesome. Really comfortable, great materials great fit. There is nothing bad I can say about this boot. You will be stoked on the fit and feel if you like medium flexing boots.

whats the difference between these and the forum formulas
The Hail is a great boot, really comfortable and a great color.
The Forumula has a Level 4 liner with FGel in the heal to reduce heel bruising. It also has a "foot belt" which is removable, this increase the fit around your ankle, it is great after you boots have been worn for a month or so. The Forumula also has tweaker technology. This soft panel on the inside of the boot allows for a more fluid flex of the boot when doing grabs and jibbing.
Both boots are great, but the Forumula has Forum specific technology that makes the freestyle ride better.
This boot will be perfect for a lot of shreds. It is super cush, fits true to size, and the minimized footprint is dope. For me, the Hail didn't offer enough support. It is a super flexible boot, so it's dope for urban sessions and for jibbing. But for an overall boot, I think it needs to offer more support. But, if you are looking for a really flexible boot, I don't think you will find a better one than this.
100% Comfort & Support
This is the most comfortable boot I've ever worn. The EST/Dynolite sole gives you amazing board feel, unlike many other boots that kill any type of rider to board connection. The articulated cuff allows an outstanding amount of flex to make butters and presses feel natural. Super comfortable liner with the feel of a skate shoe and removable J-bars that will take care of any heel lift. Love my Vans boots, but these take the cake. Get these in Restricted for the EST. Get these in the same size
as the majority of your shoes; or if you like a snug boot before "pack out" get a half size smaller.
All Hail the Hail, this boot is the freestyle riders dream. It's a medium flex that will break in on the softer side. This boot helps the likes of Mikkel Bang, chuck his meat over and down some of the biggest features this side of the universe. You can take this boot anywhere on the mountain, but just keep in mind the Hail really likes the park, and urban exploring; so don't starve it. Can't beat the restricted colorway.
I really like these boots if used for what they are intended for. They are pretty freaking soft, but they are an ultralight park boot so they are supposed to be. If you are looking for the best mix of soft tweakability while still having a boot that fits right without a ton of heel lift these just may be it for you. They feel surprisingly shoe like actually which feels really good. The EST footbed is not canted forward so your foot pressure is distributed all over the footbed just like a regular shoe instead over the ball of your foot. That, along with the soft flex and light weight, almost makes them feel like I have a sneaker on. The Restricted colorwave only adds to the shoe like feel as they match a pair of my DVS skate shoes almost exactly.
Also, Burton finally swapped out their liner lace locking mechanism so its not that stupid yellow tab anymore. This new one is MUCH more user friendly and a bit more substancial as well. Doesn't look like it will break any time soon. I wear a size 10 skate shoe, 9.5 slipper, and 8.5 snowboard boot. These fit perfectly for me like snowboard boots do at an 8.5. I basically run 8.5 across the board (Burton, Ride, Thirty Two, Northwave)
sooooooooooo comfortable its amazing
