Its Ion-inspired performance package includes grippy Vibram® soles, footprint reducing Shrinkage™, sensation-enhancing cushioning with EST®, and S4 to prevent flex breakdown. Total Comfort gives riders like Jussi and Mikkel that broken-in feel right out of the box. Between the Ion and Hail in support, this is the boot you’ve been waiting for.
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology
Reduces the boot’s overall footprint one full size, meaning a men’s size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker—never suffer from toe drag again.
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.

Vibram® EcoStep™ Rubber Outsole
Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight and 30% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.
Rubber Ice Spikes
Soft and grippy with stiffer spikes that dig into ice when slipping isn’t an option.
EST® Optimized Soles
EST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST lowers your center of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts.
The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for unstoppable impact protection.
S4 Shell Panels
Superlight and resilient, S4 shell panels on the Imperial, Serow, and Supreme™ evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex, season after season.
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. Offered in soft, medium, and firm flexing options.
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 shop floor to season opener, and every day thereafter.
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.
Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption.
ESS Support Shank
The added support reduces fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.
Aegis Antimicrobial Coating
Inhibits foul odors. Your feet [and your friends] will thank us. Look for Aegis™ on select liners and footbeds.
