Don't be afraid to charge the heck out of your line in the powerful Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots. These monsters are made with strong, lightweight S4 shell panels that distribute strap pressure and give smooth, consistent flex season after season; good news for those who need a reliably stiff, responsive boot to go full aggro. Quick, easy lacing comes as standard with the Speed Zone™ lacing system so step in, strap up and get ready to rule the mountain.
Stiff Flex: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – Aggressive and responsive for quick edge engagement and control at speed.
Total Comfort Construction – Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort's industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to day 100.
S4 Shell Panels – Start strong, stay strong. That's S4. Super light and resilient, these shell panels on the Imperial evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex, season after season.
1:1 Firm Flex PowerUP Tongue – Burton offers 1:1 lasting on every boot. It means every half and full size shell, tongue, and out sole offer a precise fit that is not as common as one would think. Drop your loot on a Burton boot and you won't be stuck with the slop of a mismatched shell and liner. PowerUP tongues feature additional dual-density material for rebound and durability.

DryRide Heat Cycle™ Lining – Warmth and wicking are two key traits for on-snow comfort. Burton's breathable inner-lining technology utilizes interwoven thermally activated carbon thread to capture, radiate, and reflect body heat inward to keep feet warmer while also wicking heat-robbing moisture outward. Look for varying amounts and performance level of each liner.
Speed Zone™ Lacing – Strong with a low-profile, Burton's Speed-Zone™ Lacing features lightning fast lacing control while allowing you to customize the fit of the upper and lower zone in seconds. More power means more rebound, wrap and response with less lacing effort.
Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed – EVA Footbeds are lightweight, long-lasting, and absorb shock.
Vibram® EcoStep™ – Made of 30% recycled materials. This outsole has excellent grip and traction from rubber ice spikes but remains lightweight. ReBounce Cushioning, EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe area for extra comfort.
B3 Gel – Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
