Key Construction Features
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology: 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.
Speed Zone™ Lacing System: Lightning fast lacing control. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds, and because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response—with less effort. Virtually indestructible, New England Ropes’ laces are the same stuff used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams.
Winder Handles: Speed Zone™ winder handles make it easy to grip the laces and pull them tight, with or without gloves on, and also offer a convenient spot to wind up the extra lace cable.
Imprint™ 3 Liner
Rad Pad: Located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure, these pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
DynoLite Outsole: Superior cushioning, improved board feel, and consistent support in a 20% lighter weight construction. Made entirely of an exclusive cushioning compound specially formulated to withstand repeated impacts and freezing temps for long lasting shock absorption.
EST® Optimized Soles: 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
B3 Gel: The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for unstoppable impact protection.
Wishbone Upper Cuff: The NEW Wishbone Cuff defies convention, combining power and freedom into one. Picking up where the Crossbone Cuff left off, it features Jumper Cables on both the medial and lateral sides for twice the snap, rebound, and life without sacrificing the high tweakability of a softer boot.
Flex Notches: These strategically placed flex notches allow for smoother, more fluid lateral and medial flex, perfect for pressing and tweaking.
3D® Molded Tongue: Adjusting the profile of the tongue’s thickness controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap the foot/ankle/lower/leg, and reduces shell/liner stack-up for improved comfort.
Flex Spine Backstay: Get effortless medial and lateral mobility with ample edge-to-edge support for when it’s time to throw down the landing gear.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset: All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
ESS Support Shank: The added support reduces fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.
Aegis Antimicrobial Coating: Inhibits foul odors.
