The best of the best, distilled into one boot. Reign over all terrain without the king’s ransom.
The Burton Imperial boot channels 30 years of expertise into the most bang ever for your hard-earned buck. Its high-end SLX-inspired performance includes S4 shell panels to keep the flex consistent, lightweight Vibram® EcoStep™ soles for added grip, footprint reducing Shrinkage™, plus an EST® chassis with B3 Gel cushioning for ultimate board feel. Total Comfort delivers a broken-in feel right out of the box, while Sleeping Bag heat-reflective foil defies cold weather. With a flex that sits at the sweet spot between the Ion and Concord, this is the high-performance all-terrain boot you’ve been searching for.
|Lacing||Strong and low-profile, Speed Zone™ Lacing features lightning fast lacing control while allowing you to customize the fit of the upper and lower zone in seconds. More power means more rebound, wrap and response with less lacing effort. New England Rope laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of our Lifetime Warranty.|
|Lacing||American-made, natural fiber ropes power our Speed Zone™ and Boa® systems, not harsh metal cables. Virtually indestructible, New England Ropes’ laces are the same stuff used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams.|
|Flex / Response||Start strong, stay strong. That’s S4. Super light and resilient, these shell panels on the Imperial evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex, season after season.|
|Flex / Response||For greater rebound and durability, the majority of our boots feature this dual density tongue construction. Like all our 1:1 3D® Molded Tongues, it’s available in one of three flex options based on the boot. For even greater response, check the thermoplastic-reinforced PowerUP Plus Tongue on the Driver X.|
|Liner||We invest more R&D hours, premium materials, and space-age technology into our Imprint™ and Life Liners than many companies put into their entire boot line. Burton’s latest liners reflect this three-decade heritage by delivering snowboarding’s most comfortable, warmest, performancedriven fit, right out of the box.|
|Liner||Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle than the Lock-Up Cuff for increased response.|
|Intended Use||All Mountain, Park, Backcountry|
|Outsole||Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight and 30% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.|
|Outsole||You know what they say about guys with big feet, right? Big socks. Shrinkage™ reduces the boot’s overall footprint one full size, meaning a men’s size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker—never suffer from toe drag again.|
|Outsole||EST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST lowers your center of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts.|
|Comfort||Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort’s industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100.|
|Comfort||All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.|
|Cushioning||The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for ultimate dampening that’s formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.|
|Cushioning||This low-profile and lightweight underfoot technology reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions.|
