Speed laced support for stomping landings and sending lines.
The Burton Imperial snowboard boot is a freeride boot with freestyle sympathies. The supportive medium-stiff flex comes into its own when you're charging steeps and spinning the biggest jumps in the park, but it's forgiving enough to be comfortable all day. The Speed Zone dual zone lace system independently adjusts the lower and upper sections of the boot, so your feet won't move, and you can customization your support. Like the rest of Burton's lineup, Shrinkage technology reduces your footprint by a full boot size, and that means less toe drag. S4 shell panels in the upper free up the flex, so you don't have to sacrifice the tweakability you want for the support you need. When you overshoot a hardpack landing, the B3 Gel padding protects against heel bruises. For aggressive freeriders, or larger, more powerful freestylers, it doesn't get much better than the Imperial.
