The Burton Mint, whether riding a few times a week or a few times a year, is a boot that keeps you warm and happy, and that, is the most important part of the equation. For this reason, Burton upped the user-friendly design with Total Comfort for a perfect fit right out of the box. A softer, more forgiving alternative to the Emerald, the Mint’s proven comfort is sure to keep you happy after even hours of on-hill action.

Key Construction Features
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.
Imprint™ 1 Liner
Dual-Component Outsole: Burton’s dual-component outsole combines the best in grip, durability and cushioning by wrapping a full rubber cup outsole around an internal bed of soft and supportive EVA cushioning.
EVA: Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption
Rubber Ice Spikes: Soft and grippy with stiffer spikes that dig into ice when slipping isn’t an option.
Grip Fit Backstay: Grip Fit ribs on both the boot's backstay and the inside of the binding's hi-back match up for locked-in fit and response.
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.
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.
