Don't let your boots hold you back. Rip up the entire mountain with the Ruler.

These boots are pre sweet. the lacing system is kewl and it is pre stiff tho.
Not quite real Rulers
First is the pros. These boots are comfy. Like putting on a big pair of slippers comfy. As the other reviews on here say, the lacing on these is so easy I could do blindfolded. BUT that doesn't outweigh the cons of these boots, for me at least. The pack out on these things is bad, and I was getting heel lift only a few weeks after rocking these. Another thing, I like my boots flexy, but not to point that when I strap in they lose all stiffness and collapse under the pressure. Overall, these boots were good for the money I spent on them, but not good enough for the long haul.
Good boot for the money!
I upgraded from a cheap/beginner pair to these and could definitely feel the improvement! Provided good support and it's quick to put on. Only complaint is that it's a long and somewhat uncomfortable process getting them worn in. But now they're good to go!
Been out on the mountain with these boots three times now, and really like them. I think they are super comfy, form well to my foot, toasty when the temp drops and easy to move around in. Speed lacing system is super cool too. I like it much better than the older speed lacing system from Burton from a couple years back.
Overall great boot and no complaints. I would recommend them to anyone looking at them. However, like any new boot, I would recommend breaking them in a little before you hit the slopes for a full day.
I got the Rulers before last season so I'm not sure if they were 07's or 08's. Either way I don't think they are that much different. I personnaly have had no issues with them. I generally ride once a week during the season in NH so they have seen some action. Every once and a while towards the end of the day I will notice that they have become a little loose, which can be expected cause I like to carve alot. I don't find this to be a problem because for one, I wouldn't have noticed if I didn't actually look at my boot, and two, the lacing system lets me tighten up in less than two secs. As far as quality goes with Burton, I haven't had an issue. I like my boots painfully tight and really crank on the laces and they haven't torn yet. Always been comfortable, warm, and dry.
Hi,Can you tell me how much it will coast...
Hi,Can you tell me how much it will coast to ship this item to Israel?ThanksShilon Amiran
sorry man, no shipping burton outside of the united states
How do these compare to the Burton...
How do these compare to the Burton Ozone?
They are stiffer, but heavier. The ozone has a smaller footprint too, making it better for hiking. This will give you a more dialed in feel, making your board respond faster.
Picked up the camo colored Rulers and rode them like Dio's tiger last season. Can't say that I've had a single problem with them. They stay warm, dry, fit is very customizable and they look sweet. Laces up right quick. Definitely get them heat molded if you've got the chance, i've got flat feet and it was worth the extra 10 minutes. If you can pick 'em up on the cheap, go for it.
The Name is NO JOKE
These boots were an upgrade on some pretty old boots that I was limping along in for about 3 seasons. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I am a burton man now! I have taken these fellas out durring the day and finnished off with a round of night boarding and the only thing that sucked about the day was it being over. My feet felt great. The Heat molding is really good too. Perfect fit. Make sure you go some where that does it (it is just a bit quicker). I have used these for two solid seasons and have recommended them to all of my pals (all of them that have these boots love'em too). If you are contimplating getting something else, please don't. You'll kick yourself for it later. Oh, and the lacing system is amazing. Just as fast as those damn skiers now.
Lacing system is awesome. Kept my feet warm. Comfy. Stout. Buy them.
Sick As Hell
These boots are amazing. Don't know how much simpler i can get. The speed lacing system is amazing, so much better than the traditional lacing system. Warm as hell, haven't ridden in extremely cold weather, but down to 0 degrees F and my feet were still warm. Good fit. The base of the shoe grips very well, just a little extra that helps walking up to that rail or in the parking lot. Definitely a 5/5.
I only got to ride these 4 days so far and may only get to a couple more days this season, but I was pretty pleased. The quick zone lacing was really nice, I could see how it would suck to have them relaced though, but I didn't see any signs of problems yet from mine. The smaller foot print was a nice perk and they they were really comfortable even for the first time with no breaking in. I usually only get 4 to 6 days a season of riding in and for the price and performance I feel as if I got a great deal.
These boots are great for the price. They are nice and light with a small foot print. The quick zone lacing is great. They break in nicely but I have a feeling that they will pack out rather quickly.
I bought these boots last season rode them all year and then the laceing system broke. I guess what happened was the tubing that runs the the bott for the laceing system cracked and freyed the sleeve on the laces so the device that is suppose the lock the lace in place would grip it. I went and got new laces(which were a bitch to put in) and usewd them about 15 to 20 more days for that season. I put them on this season to ride a basin and the lace that I replace with one of burtons newer laces for these boots broke again. so If you want to be kepp replace lace through out the year get these boots. The only thing that was good was that i could lace up in like 2 mins
Comfortable, warm, lots of pack out
These are definitely some comfortable boots especially at this price point. I have to disagree with just about everything the other reviewer said though.
The Ruler's are most definitely heat moldable, you can even check the Burton website ALL of the boots with this liner are. Even if you don't have the molding done at a shop they will still mold from your weight and body heat over th course of a day.
I am sized at an 11.5 on one of those foot measuring devices and I comfortably wear a 10.5 Ruler (Ion as well), these boots pack out A LOT, I strongly recommend ordering at least a 1/2 size smaller than usual(shoe size) or you will be getting heel lift after less than a week of heavy use.
As for the sock thing it really shouldn't be necessary to wear more than one pair. Invest in at least two pairs of tech socks like smartwool (or similar) and you'll be good for the season. You can probably find some pretty cheap(less than $15) on this site. Wearing 3 pairs of cheap cotton socks will make you sweat leading to cold, damp feet.
The speed zone lacing system is great. You can really dial in on both your forefoot and ankle area for a great customizable fit.
The shrinkage tech is great for guys like me right on the board width border. A full size smaller footprint means no more wide boards and no more heel/toe drag on reg widths, I'm rocking 2 254 mm WW boards this season which rocks!
All in all you really can't go wrong for the short money on these boots.
Perfect for dodging work
I just got these and they are amazing. I love the lacing system. They aren't heat molded but they fit so snug that its as if they were. I am a size 10.5 to 11 foot and I got the 11. These are the tightest(in a good way) 11 I have ever had but they fit perfect. So if you need 3 pairs of socks to keep your feet warm then go a size bigger. They are also some of the lightest boots I have ever picked up!!! Props Burton on these!
