Like a firebomb tossed into an abandoned car, the Burton Women’s Molotov EST Snowboard Binding tends to turn a few heads. The winged highback offers additional lateral stiffness to give you extra control when it comes time to butter boxes and nose press the rails. Burton’s park-specific ASYM Superstrap locks you in while still allowing enough mobility to tweak the hell out of your cab 540, and the medium flex gives you the versatility to ride every inch of the mountain with confidence.

If you have a look at the burton websites...
If you have a look at the burton websites mainpage the background is a picture of Shaun White and his board seems to have these bindings on it. Can guys use this binding too?
Yes guys can if their feet are small enough. Shawn is not running these bindings though they are different. If you have a size 8 or smaller boot then get a pair of these for sure.
I dig the funky highback
I got lucky and was able to demo these when Burton came to Bear last month and I heart these bindings! I demo'd them with the Blender which was the perfect match! Didn't return my demo until the end of the day and went home to buy the bindings right away. Unfortunately I don't have a Blender of my own but they look real purdy on my Stria.
Why do I heat the Molotov? I feel totally locked in - even on the same rail I did a gnarly buttslide on just a couple weeks prior. Personally I dig the funky highbacks. I know some people don't like it but I have no problems. Although these are park bindings you can take them elsewhere on the hill with no problemos - the highback felt fine even going down the steeps (well as steep as you can get at Bear that is). Oh and all that gel stuff in the base plates are real comfy - even after a full day of riding I don't have achy balls (the balls of my feet that is).
I suggest you get em in blue cuz they make yo feet look real nice. And we all know you want to look good while riding.
