Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots - 2012/2013 - $299.95

Burton Imperial snowboard boots are the result of 30 years of boot-building expertise. These bang-for-your-buck boots are packed full of tech to take your boarding to the next level. Get a comfortable fit right out of the box: industry-exclusive toe box construction offers a quick break-in period and increases warmth and comfort. Shrinkage(TM) technology reduces boot's overall footprint by 1 full size, minimizing boot overhang, bulk and weight. Superlight and resilient shell panels evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown; their flex remains consistent, season after season. Imprint(TM) 3 liners move with you for increased agility and response; rip-and-stick liner closures. Rad Pad cushioning is built into liners. Liners provide a consistent flex over time and slide on and off feet easily; precurved ankle panels reduce lace pressure on front of legs. Medium-flexing, slim, 3D-molded tongues wrap the forefeet in comfort, offer a seamless flex and reduce performance-robbing shell/liner stack-up. Snow-proof internal gussets on boot tongues completely seal lower boot zones to keep feet warm and dry. Streamlined Speed Zone(TM) shell lacing lets you fine-tune the upper and lower zones in seconds; this system offers powerful rebound, wrap and response with minimal effort. To make entry and exit easy, Burton has added a pull loop on the tongue as well as a lace pull tab that releases both the upper and lower zones simultaneously. Molded EVA footbeds with a supportive shank lessen the blow of hardpack landings. Low-profile EST(TM) midsoles with a reduced ramp angle lower your center of gravity for improved boot feel; ultra-damping B3 gel inserts cushion without added weight. Vibram(R) EcoStep(TM) outsoles are made with recycled rubber and backed by nearly 70 years of mountaineering knowledge for superior traction, feel and light weight. - $299.95
