Response and cushioning that's fit for a king.
The Burton Imperial Men's Snowboard Boot delivers the responsive flex and cushioned feel needed by serious freeride enthusiasts that crush anything standing in their way. Inspired by Burton's top-dog SLX, the Imperial has S4 shell panels that resist breakdown over the course of the season, allowing riders to hit the elusive 100-day mark without their boots suffering the consequences. This hard-charging boot uses Speed Zone lacing for a quick, efficient lacing solution that's great for dialing in your preferred tightness on the hill without freezing your fingers fumbling with traditional laces.
Inside the boot, you'll find a supremely comfortable Imprint 3 Liner with Focus Cuff Heel Hold system. This system provides awesome heel hold by hugging the sweet spot around your ankle, preventing dreaded heel lift when you're charging hard. Its Aegis antimicrobial coating fends off funky-smelling microbes. Additionally, you'll find a Level 2 Molded EVA footbed for added comfort and shock-absorption when you take natural hits or ride over rough, bumpy terrain.
The boot's industry-leading Vibram EcoStep sole not only resists wear and tear with its rugged design, but it tenaciously grips onto icy, hardpacked slopes with Rubber Ice Spikes embedded into the toe area. This makes the Imperial especially suited for freeriders walking up treacherous boot packs and no-fall zones where every step is crucial. Soaking up bumps and high-speed vibration, the boot's EST Optimized midsole uses B3 gel for maximum shock absorption. Add in Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil and you have a boot that won't leave your feet feeling numb, no matter how frigid the temps are outside.
