Charging the pow and bombing the groomers comes the Burton Imperial snowboard boots. If Stormtroopers from Star Wars boarded, this is what they'd wear, but they can't because they're off being evil and stuff...anyway, back to the boots.
Suped up with the highest quality tech in the game, the Imperial is a no-nonsense, all mountain destroyer.
What good is a boot if you spend the majority of your time at the mountain fiddling with the laces, or trying to unfreeze your step-in boot base? No good at all. Thanks to Burton's Speed Zone Lacing System powered by Burton exclusive New England Ropes (with a sick lifetime warranty because they're That good), the days of struggle are at an end, and the glory days are upon you because cinching in is lighter, quicker, and easier than ever before.
If you've snowboarded before, you've undoubtedly had your fair share of slips and trips. The Burton Team decided to tackle the issue and throw a solid, non-slip-superior-grip Vibram EcoStep Outsole Design with Rubber Ice Spikes onto the bottom of the Imperial. Forget eating it in the parking lot, or near the lodge and some snow-bunnies, or where it counts - on the mountain. After helping boarders get a grip, the team then tackled the issue of bulk. Snowboard and ski boots are generally pretty bulky, but the Low Profile EST Optimized Midsole that the Imperial rocks removes that girthy sole and replaced it with a less cumbersome and more reactive one that allows for more board feel and control while you're ripping tricks in the park or carving first tracks into that sweet, sweet corduroy.
