Burton Ion Snowboard Boots - 2012/2013 - $429.95

Burton Ion snowboard boots offer a legendary fit preferred by the pros. Now featuring Pirelli(TM) rubber soles inspired by snow tires, you'll love the fit and feel of these boots. Burton Ion boots are designed to offer extreme comfort with high-end features galore; slip your feet inside and you may never want to take them out! Shrinkage(TM) technology reduces boot's overall footprint by 1 full size, minimizing boot overhang, bulk and weight. Outer shell pressure-relief panels: gel cushioning is fused to the area where ankle straps rest on boots to evenly distribute pressure when bindings are cranked tight. Powerful, seamless backstay spines increase medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response and durability. Imprint(TM) 4 liners feature DRYRIDE moisture-wicking technology to keep feet comfortable; Rad Pads add comfort. Liners provide a consistent flex over time and slide on and off feet easily; precurved ankle panels reduce lace pressure on front of legs. To make entry and exit easy, Burton added a new pull loop on the tongue as well as a lace pull tab that releases both the upper and lower zones simultaneously. Snow-proof internal gussets on boot tongues completely seal lower boot zones to keep feet warm and dry. Firm-flexing, thin-profile, 3D molded tongues wrap the shins, ankles and insteps in comfort, offer a seamless flex and reduce performance-robbing shell/liner stack-up. 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. 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 weight. Molded EVA footbeds with a supportive shank and dual-density cushioning lessen the blow of hardpack landings; antimicrobial coating fights odors. - $429.95
