Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots 2016

The best of the best features can be found in the Burton Imperial Snowboard Boot. The Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots are the leader when it comes to an all-mountain boot for carving into the groomers or seeking out the fresh pow in the backcountry. The cushioning is all about keeping those hard landings and impacts in check. For starters, the Vibram EcoStep reduces the weight of these boots considerably and boasts B3 Gels in the heel and toe for the ultimate dampening of repeated impacts. Rubber Ice Spikes are pretty self-explanatory but they are soft and grippy material with stiffer spikes when you can't afford to slip on the ice. The Imprint 3 Liner has Rad Pads for comfort, Sock Locks, ESS support Shank and Aegis Antimicrobial Coating to reduce the chances you'll pull off these boots and get a whiff of something gnarley at the end of a long riding day. The liner is also heat moldable so that you have the most customized fit for the best feel. With S4 you'll Start Strong, Stay Strong meaning the boot evenly distributes pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown so that you have a consistent flex when you head to the mountain the first time in the Imperials and even next year when you head back. With so much tech and features bursting from these boots, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better groomer/backcountry boot than the Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots. [+]
