Burton Ruler Snowboard Boots - 2011/2012 - $102.83

From jibs to jumps, the Burton Ruler snowboard boots measure up. With a legacy of pushing personal skills to the pro level, the Ruler is the boot for stepping to larger drops and burlier features. Proven features such as reduced weight and a shrunken footprint, oversize airbags and a stabilizing backstay spine filter top-of-line-tech down to the couch surfer's salary. Shrinkage(TM) technology reduces boot's overall footprint by 1 full size, minimizing boot overhang, bulk and weight. Powerful backstay spines increase medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response and durability. Strategically placed flex notches allow smooth and fluid lateral and medial flex, perfect for nose bones and tweaked out tail grabs. 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. Shock-absorbing air bags cover approximately 75% of the midsoles for a pillowy ride and protection without the weight. Grippy rubber spikes supply that extra edge when traveling across slippery terrain. 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 new pull loop on the tongue as well as a lace pull tab that releases both the upper and lower zones simultaneously. Imprint(TM) 2 liners with quick-fit harnesses and lace locks secure feet; lightweight power panels surround calves and ankles with supportive comfort. Get a comfortable fit right out of the box: new, industry-exclusive toe box construction offers a quick break-in period and increases warmth and comfort. - $102.83
