Burton Imperial- you know what it is!

This boot runs the gamut, all of Burton really good features come alive in this boot. For the rider needing a stiffer boot but still tweakable get this.Supportive. Burton gives it a 7 out of 10 on their flex scale. I think it's like a Beefed up Ruler or inbetween the Ruler and the Sabbath.Vibram sole. Works like spikes, without the spikes.Out of the box awesomeness. The insole is almost as good as after-market insoles- almost, plenty of support though. Fits true to size.No heel lift. None.Shinkage tech: If you're on the cusp of a m to large binding, you can get a mediume with this tech. Burton says.Shrinkage reduces the boots overall footprint one full size, meaning a mens size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleekernever suffer from toe drag again.Awesome liner with no pressure points unnecessary garbage. The Velcro on the tongue keeps it in place and not shifting around.Light weight. I weighed one boot at 2.25 (size 9.5)
