Description

Skate feel on your snowboard.

Burton designed the Women's Sapphire Snowboard Boot for all-mountain riders who want a comfortable, boot with skate-influenced performance to tear up the whole mountain. Articulated cuffs allow these boots' upper and lower halves to flex independently and give you a smooth, consistent fit that responds instantly without the pinch. Burton's heat-moldable liner provides a tailored fit, while the 2:1 Power Lacing System locks down your heel with minimal effort. Plush padding and a cushy EVA footbed makes the Sapphire Boot feel as comfortable as your skate shoe. And with street-inspired styles, they'll look as good, too. - Fall 2008.

Pretty Cool

Just wore these for the first time, they were pretty awesome. I have small ankles and these fit great. By the end of the first day my toes were numb, but I think that was just breaking them in some. The second and third day they were fine. I wear a size 7 shoe; I got a 7 1/2 in these, maybe should have gotten an 8.

I didn't get the battery pack, maybe later.

I would recommend these boots! Plus they look great :)

Great boots

I have skinny ankles so I did have to put in the j-bars, but they are the first boots I've worn with minimal heel slip. I also had to buy them 1/2 size large to avoid numb toes. Very cushy boot and very adjustable with the lace system. The warming liner is a cool idea, but at $70 a battery, I didn't bother. I did a lot of back country hiking with them and it was as comfortable as wearing my hiking boots. The boots look damn good too (in white) :)

good boots

they are true to size. they have plenty of cushion. the only thing is if you have wide feet like me u need to break them in before u go for your first ride. I had to take lots of breaks. But now they are great. Enjoy

no go

i didn't like these, they wer way stiff and rubbed my feet and were way way to tight. i had to stop riding and switch into my old boots. the patchwork design is way cute though although i don't think they tend to make that one anymore. anyway, i wouldn't recommend these.

Comfy boot

I got these boots a half size larger since I've had numb toes in the past. After wearing them around the house a number of times I found proper tightening of the liner helped me avoid lacing them up too tight. Though tight, they were comfortable. Then I got them onto the hill.

While the boots packed out well and are quite snug overall, my right foot did have the outside ankle issue someone else mentioned. It wasn't rug burn, just an annoying pressure. I have a few different socks and it happened with all of them. The ankle didn't hurt once the boot was off and, by the 5th day, I think I started getting used to it (boot started adjusting?).

Additionally, my toes got numb, especially on lifts. My left foot warmed up one riding, but my right (my larger foot) stayed tingly. I thought it was my toes getting squished but the boot tip was cold when I wiggled my hand into the toe area. I think I'll look into the heater as the boots are a little too snug still for foot warmers.

Overall I really like the boots! The velcro on the liner is brilliant and goes a long way toward keeping me riding comfortably. The quick lace also works well, especially if you wiggle your foot to get at the lower area. The outside laces are a little slippy, but lacing them 1-3-2 on the hooks helps them from creeping up. I'd recommend these :)

Great at first...numb in 10 mins

I wear a street size 8 in pumps/flats and 8.5 in boots/sneaks. Tried these on in an 8 and my toes went tingly and numb after 5 minutes. But they had the perfect flexibility, cushioning, heel grip, and the Therm-ic heat element so I bought them in an 8.5 thinking they were just a wee too small. They arrived 2 days ago and I've tested them out around the house 4 times now and each and every time my toes start to tingle and go numb after about 10 minutes of walking around. I've tried loosening the liner ties, loosening the outer ties...nothing. The are SO perfect everywhere and then, slowly, subtly, my toes tingle and that's that.

A real shame because they have great heel grip and padding. There must be too much pressure somewhere that just cuts off my circulation or puts pressure on some nerves.

I was wondering about the heat moldable system the boots come with. What do you plug them into to heat them up? Do you have to bring them to a store?

Responded on

The boots come with a built in therm-ic heating system. You have to separately purchase a therm-ic battery system, which can runs you $100++ and up depending on how nice you go. Also, burton messed this one up and the standard battery won't plug into the boot. You need to separately get a Burton adapter cable, which Burton will send you for free. I love the boot, but still waiting to get the setup right.

sapphires are the best boot EVER

These boots freaking rock. I have 5 pairs of sapphire boots over my many years of snowboarding. I have a very skinny ankle and I do not get heal lift in these. I normally wear a size 8 shoe. I used to get these in a 6 1/2...I like 'rm snug. this last year I went up to a 7.5 cuz I was coaching a lot, so lots of standing at comps and on jumps and so on. I do not think I would go to a size 8. they would be too loose and I would loose the heal hold as well. These do pack out and mold to your foot with the natural heat of your foot. I also LOVE these because of the heater system....I do not know how I lived life with out the heaters. You need to buy the burton battery packs. I never complain ever about cold feet. There is a nice soft furry liner that makes it easy to slide your foot in and out. I get a rediculous amount of comments about how cute and awesome the design of these boots are...I got them in the patch work style.

I have tried every brand of snowboard boot and for a small skinny ankle...these are the best fit you can find, hands down.

I have been looking everywhere for this boot in a size 7 or 7.5 is there any possible way you guys have that size. Thank you

Responded on

Yes in the select options drop down menu they have a 7.5 in the Green Camo available.

Responded on

Ya, they have it in size 7.5 in green camo if that's the color you're wanting. If not, you're out of luck. Nothing else in 7.0 or 7.5.

Responded on

I have the boots in size 8. They run small, so they are too small for me. If you are interested??

Too Small

For some reason a 10 doesnt fit me and I have no idea why, it did 3 months ago. So now I have to send them back and somehow find and 11. I havent found a place who sold an 11, any help?

The reason I bought the boots was because I loved the board yet now I cant find boots....help please

great boot for skinny ankles!!

I would wear these ALL the time. These are my 3rd pair of boots since i have started riding and they will probably be my last. I have very skinny ankles and have never been able to find a boot that actually kept my foot in place (I would turn toe side and my heel would lift up making it very hard for me to control the responsiveness of my board). I had burton freestyle's for 5 years which I really liked but "ugraded" to DC judges which I also thought I liked until I got these. The sapphires are the most comfortable boot I have worn, they have great support, the pads keep my ankles nice and snug, and I know there are all these boots with fancy boa and crazy lacing systems but you really do get the best custom fit with regular old laces. These also have a spot for a heater pack so if you are always freezing like me and wear toe warmers, you can get an electric one so you don't have to mess with those anymore. I am so glad I bought these. Oh and I have them in coach and every one on my ski team is obsessed with them, even random people have commented how sweet they are.

Worth Every Penny

I've tried out 4 pairs of boots and wore a size 7 in every pair so I was a bit surprised when the 7s in these didn't fit me. At first they felt fine but after about 45 mins my feet felt like they were falling asleep. I traded them in for a size larger, and now I am well pleased with these boots! I went snowboarding at temps in the single digits with a biting wind and my feet were warm. They were easy enough to get on and off. They didn't feel "clunky" like 3 of the 4 other pairs had. Last but not least, I could feel what was going on between my board and me.

great boot

This was the easiest boot to put on and lace up! I usually struggle getting on my boots and this couldn't have been easier...once on super comfortable on my right (smaller) foot but a little tight on the left foot...hoping it will pack out a bit more and be more comfortable next time

Great boots

Super cute for ladies and loving the boots so far - nice and warm. I am glad someone advised me to buy these boots to my exact shoe size ... they fit like a glove. They are however quite wide and are super snug in my ladies medium bindings. Great price.

stiff boots

I had to return the sapphires. I got the right size, but these boots were stiff and uncomfortable for me. After a while my feet felt slightly numb, maybe you have to break them in. Anyway, I bought the lodi instead and I like them and they're cheaper. I get a 1/2 size up from my normal shoe size in burton boots, since I wear thick socks.

Lovin' my fancy heated boots

I have had a lot of problems with my feet and these are they best boarding boots I have ever had. I was disappointed that the heater was sold separately but it is totally worth it. They keep your feet nice and warm all day. The heat switch does occasionally move by itself but I was thinking a small piece of tape would secure it for a full day of riding. I did have to retighten the liner at least once during the day but this often happens to me because I have a narrow foot. Be sure to break them in for at least a week around the house before you go out. They are also pretty true to size.

What kind of feet problems were you having before? I am having pain in the ball of my foot and Im looking into these boots because they have a lot of cushion.

I'm a beginner snowboarder and have never bought boots before. My normal shoe size is a 6 1/2, but when I rented the first time, they gave me a 6 and it was a brand new boot with the Boa system and my feet fell asleep in less than an hour and I had to rip them off of my feet every hour on the mountain. The second time I rented from the mountain and they also gave me a 6 and they felt like sneakers. I want to buy the Burton Sapphire boots and don't know if I should get the 6 or 6 1/2. The snowboard store measured my feet at a 5 1/2 and a 6. They had the boot in a 7 and my foot felt snug in that around the whole foot, except the heel, where I could lift it up. They had a 6 in their cheaper Casa version and my felt fell asleep almost instantly and they were very tight around the whole top half of my foot and the sides. I'm so confused, what do I buy.Please help me!From, Laura

You hit on it in the text. You've got to try the boots on. A 1/2 size variation between brands and styles is common. I've worn from 10 Salomon to 11.5 Vans in boots. Burton fit me more true, at about 10.5.Lacing is another issue...Some folks like boa since its quick and universally tightens the boot - good if you have an "average" foot. Easy to overtighten if you are starting out though. Locking laces are great if you want part of the boot tighter and part looser. It lets you custom fit the corset to your foot, but they can loosen at times, so you'll be fiddling with them more on the mountain.Still, if you're starting out, don't think about buying a boot that you haven't tried on. Go to the store, try on everything they've got, write it all down, then go online and buy it cheaper.
