These boots have more high-tech features than the average rocket-ship.

Burton outfitted the Men’s Ion Snowboard Boot with a low-profile EST midsole to bring you closer to your board for response and better board feel. Burton added its RX Adjustable Cushioning System to these boots, which enables you to choose your padding based on snow conditions or the kind of riding you’re doing. Using the system is simple: before you pull on your Ions, take out the liners, and put either the included gel or air cartridges into the heel chambers.
  • Burton�s RX adjustable system lets you choose the dampening of B3 Gel or the responsiveness and cushioning of air
  • Speed Zone zonal lacing lets you adjust how tight you want your boots around your insteps and ankles
  • Power Spine backstays on the boot shells offer excellent lateral and medial response and support
  • The heat-moldable Imprint 4 liners feature Focus Cuffs that hug your ankles to enhance heel hold
  • The liners� EZ Entry panels reduce friction so you don�t feel like you�re trying to shove your feet into women�s boots
  • InfiniFIT EVA soles in the liners cushion feet and won�t pack out after half a season
  • Power Panels in the liners ensure these boots retain the same flex, rebound, and support on day 101 as you experienced on day one
  • Outlast Adaptive Comfort Technology means these boots� liners are smart enough to absorb excess heat and then release that heat when your feet get cold.

One year later

FYI - for anyone that has these boots - I have had mine for a year (about 60 days on them - including touring). I have always had a problem with my feet going numb when my bindings are tight. If I'm just walking around, they're fine - obviously this is a problem. I finally figured out that it was the soles. They don't offer enough support - so when the bindings are tight, my foot was flattened out. I bought some super feet and took out the Burton soles. It's like a whole new boot. The pain and foot cramping is gone and it stopped my heel slipping issues too. I love these boots - they're awesome. But I would highly recommend switching out the soles.

A burton classic for rippin

The ion has always been one of my favorite boot models. I've owned 3 pairs and have always been very happy with them. The ion is the second most supportive and responsive boot burton makes. It the ideal boot for all terrain riding although i rocked em in the park alot. The reason I gave this boot 4 stars was because this years model has a very different fit than previous years. It did not fit my foot as well as it used to but everyone's foot is different so try these on and if they fit good buy em you'll be stoked!

Is it true that Burton boots pack out a whole lot? Should I be downsizing when buying Ions?

Responded on

This is a difficult question. Burton boots are supper comfortable, and they do pack out a bit. I wouldn't say a whole lot but there is some. When buying boots, it is difficult to decide on downsizing. The problem is, if you do downsize and they don't packout as much as you think they will, they you are done for. The best thing to do is to get the size you know your foot is. I wear 9.5 shoes, but i know they are loose on me. For boots, I run 9s. I like to wear my shoes loose. Decide what size your feet are then get the corresponding size.

Like 'em so far

I've only spent two days in my Ions, but I like them a lot. Very comfortable boot, and I like the speed-lacing system, despite being initially skeptical. They are a pretty stiff boot, and I feel like I have very good control without have to tighten the laces to the point of being uncomfortable, as I have with other boots.
All the materials are comfortable, and seem to be of good quality.
Only downside was the price, but got them for 40% off at the end of the season.

Great boots, almost perfect

I decided to try these after using DC BOAs for 3 seasons. I thought I would never use anything but BOAs, but I'm glad I tried these. They are stiff in all the right spots, light, responsive and very comfy. I'll likely use these for a number of seasons and buy comparable boots from Burton when the time comes. Thanks Dogfunk for the quick shipping.

ionic bond

These boots are dope. No heel slip, very supportive. Put them on in 90seconds. not for the beginner. Very warm, pull them as tight as u want with no circulation problems. B3gel or air pocket heel insert is awesome. these boots are lights out.

Excellent boot!

Switched to the Ions after wearing Salomon Synapses for three years. The SpeedZone lacing system on the Ion allows for a much more customized fit than the Salomon. Teamed this boot up with a pair of Cartels and the match was perfect for me. If you charge down the mountain and are looking for a stiff, responsive boot then look no further.

After reading a bunch reviews on Burton boots, I've found that people seem to have a lot of problems with their "Speed-Zone Lacing" deals (breakage, looseness, etc.). I've ridden some Motos for 2 seasons (with 30+ days on snow for this one), and I have never had any problems at all with my laces. I step out of my shoes, get into my boots and - BAM! - I'm good to go. I mean, they do get loose after a couple hours, but I don't find it to be that much of a problem.

So anyway, I want to know if the laces on these boots are any different. Are they really weaker or something (I mean, weaker than my Motos. Obviously they're weaker than traditional laces), or if everyone's just yanking too hard on their lacey-pully jobs or riding in some way that's somehow super-abusive to them? Should I buy these since I haven't had any problems with the speed-lacing, even though everyone else seems to?

Best Answer Responded on

There is no way the Ion boots would have a weaker lace system than the Motos. The Ion is a way better boot. You will be stoked to get into these. Super comfortable with great response. The laces only break if they get cut by something i.e. your edges or tree branches. If this happens, your local shop can easily replace them for you. The process takes around 30 mins. Get these boots, they are awesome.

Are these $400 worth of boots? Or even $320 worth?

Responded on

You may consider this a biased opinion, but I say yes. They aren't cheap, but after switching from these to some less-expensive Burton boots I realized just how badass they were. Super lightweight, comfortable, and great support. If it means anything, I'm going back to the Ions again next season.

Responded on

Simply put. Heck yes these boots are amazing!!!

Responded on

if they are comfortable then yes they are worth it.. but you should check out some other boots before you buy these because you will probably find cheaper ones that are just as comfortable. You may even find that this boot kills your feet because everybodys feet are different, whats great for me may be painful for you

i have 07 burton tribute boots and they have gotten too small. Will burton ions work well with burton cartel bindings? Also, i had 11.5 tributes should i go up to a 12 for the ions?

Responded on

go to your local shop try them on and buy them there, i guarantee you that the 11.5's actually fit you now that you had them since 07. Also any burton boot is meant to work well with burton bindings, thats how they get you to buy their stuff.

Best Answer Responded on

I ride Ion's with cartels and they work great. Go for a half size smaller than your shoe. The boots are stiff but incredibly comfortable and will mold to your foot and pack out to your shoe size.

good boots

Very stiff, allows for maximum control of your deck and comfortable to walk in. The only draw back was that putting them on its quite a process, but once my feet were in I loved them. The day was cold and my feet never went numb. I'm not used to the new lacing system, but once figured out, I guess I can understand how it can be more convenient.

Great Boot!

Great boots. Warm, kept my foot dry. I have short, fat feet. I wear 10 1/2 shoe size, a 10 fits me perfectly. I gave it a 4 star because the laces felt a little flimsy for a $400 boot and it's a big pain for me to get my feet into the boot compared to some others Ive used. Super comfortable, looks great and cleans easily too!

how much do these pack out? last season i rode the motos and I wear an 8.5 shoe so i got size 8 boots and they packed out so much that i was practically sliding all over the place. Should I go down to a 7.5 for the ions or will an 8 do alright?

Responded on

The Ions have a much, much higher-end liner and a slightly lower-profile last than the Motos, so they should pack out a lot less and fit more snug to begin with. I'd go for the 8.

Responded on

no go for the 7.5, you just sized your foot too big. people buy boots way too big, its very common. i personally wear a 11 sized shoe and i wear a 9.5 boot

Review Title

I've been sporting the Burton ION's now for the last 3 season. They are an excellent fit and I've yet to find another pair of boots to rival them for fit and comfort.

My original pair were the regular lace-up's and I never had any problems with them. They just got worn out!
My 2nd pair sported the Speed Zone lacing system which is quicker, and much better at distributing pressure evenly across the boot. The only downside was that the early boots suffered from a lot of problems with the plastic guide for the lace being pulled out of the boot when you pull the lace system. Burton replaced the boots without any fuss and the 2nd pair have lasted out 12 weeks now!

The only other issue I have is that over the 12 weeks the boots have really softened up... this is not a problem as long as you keep hold of the bones that slide into the tongues of the boot

I would have give the Burton ION's only 3 stars, but the excellent warranty pushes to the boots to "pretty cool" - 4 stars

Review Title

These are pretty good boots. I have had 3 pairs of ions and I do prefer traditional lace-up boots. The eyelets pulled out after about 2 months. Burton will warranty, but it takes awhile. The boot is comfortable and very compact, which means you will probably have to adjust your straps before you take these out for the first time. Make sure you try them in your bindings and secure a good fit before you shred the ganr.
