Rocking a tech heavy construction, the Ruler reigns supreme when it comes to versatility. Sitting in the snow trying to wrangle your laces is never fun, nor is taking an ice pick to your frozen step-in boot binding, so Burton designed the Ruler with their life-changing Speed Zone Lacing System powered by New England Ropes (backed by a lifetime warranty, so that's a plus.) This sick system allows for a quick, easy, snug fit, which means more board control and overall performance from your boots.

There's nothing worse than having cold feet on an epic powder day; the snow is dumping, but your toes are cold so you're thinking to yourself, "wtf boots?" Burton fixed that, too. Loaded with an Imprint 2 Liner and powered by 3M Thinsulate Insulation, you'll never have a problem with frozen-foot syndrome again. The techy insulation cradling your feet produces twice the warmth of the competition, and even works when wet. So if you're one of those people who hits the slopes when the mountain looks like a 7-11 Slurpee, these boots are for you; it's no wonder they're one of the most popular Burton boots.

Ride Style

All Mountain - Whether you're doing hot laps, lazy groomers, ripping around or hammering the park on occasion - these boots provide versatile mobility that will allow you to shred virtually anywhere on the mountain in whatever condition. Slash a turn, tweak a grab, bonk a tree, ollie the cat track and be sure to high five your friends before getting back on the lift.

Ankle harnesses and higher grade liners are commonly found in higher end all-mountain boots for added comfort and support, while BOA dials or speed lacing found on certain models can add ultimate speed and convenience.

Park/Freestyle - Softer park boots will have better mobility for pressing/tweaking while mid to stiffer park boots offer more response and support when stepping up to the bigger features. Hot laps through the park, jibbing a box here, blasting a method there, back to the chair and all over again.

Articulating cuffs can add more comfort and a truer flex while zonal top and bottom lacing is often preferred for a more customized feel depending on your riding style. Some park boots often have dampening added to help reduce impact from big landings.

Flex Rating

SoftStiff - Mid-Flex - good response and power for all-around riding. Not too soft, not too stiff and good for all levels of riders.

Key Features

Speed Zone™ Lacing System - The Speed Zone Lacing System features streamlined, profiled lace guides for increased performance and improved durability. The system retains lightning fast lacing control by allowing you to customize the fit of the upper and lower zones in seconds. More power means more rebound, wrap and response with less lacing effort.

New England Rope laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of Burton's Lifetime Warranty.

3M Thinsulate Insulation - Twice as warm as other insulation of equal thickness, it provides warmth even when wet.

Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil Underfoot - This low-profile and lightweight foil underneath your liner reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions.

Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology - Shrinkage 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.


Imprint 2 Liner - Heat-Moldable so whether you have funky cankles or a crazy sixth toe, rest assured that your feet will be wrapped in total comfort.

Lock-Up Cuff offers a super low-profile inner cuff that carries the laces across the forefoot, and around the ankle for ultimate heel hold with effortless entry and exit.

Inner Lace Lock makes exiting a cinch with the one-handed release tab.

Lightweight Power Panels ensure that your boots provide the same flex, rebound and support on day 100 as they did on day 1. They’re built using memory materials, which even after being deeply flexed, enable both the liner and shell to snap back into their original position.

Velcro Liner Closure provides legendary convenience with long-lasting hold for easy open and close action.

Level 1 Molded EVA Footbed is a lightweight and long-lasting. EVA cushioning helps minimize impacts so you can charge harder for longer.

Man Fur Lining - Awww now come on, what man doesn't like a little fuzzy Man Fur hugging his feet? Soft and comfy material on the inside of your liner also makes it easier for sliding your stank feet in and out of your boots.

Lock-Up Cuff Liner Wrap - This super low-profile inner cuff carries the laces across the forefoot and ankle for ultimate heel hold with effortless entry and exit.


GripLITE Backstay - Snuggling up the fit between boot and hi-back, the GripLITE rubber backstay also shaves weight and enhances grip. The result of GripLITE is a more direct transfer from boot to binding to board for reduced rider fatigue.

PowerUP Tongue - This dual density tongue offers greater response than the previous Thin Profile 3D Molded tongue with improved rebound and durability.

Snow-Proof Internal Tongue Gusset - All Burton boot tongues have been upgraded with an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.


DynoGRIP Outsole - In addition to B3 Gel in the heel for greater cushioning, the DynoGRIP outsole features an extra layer of traction at the toe and heel for greater grip. Like every Burton Dyno outsole, DynoGRIP provides lightweight, durable cushioning that’s formulated specifically for snowboarding.

B3 Gel Sole Cushioning - Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down.


Total Comfort Construction - Get an instantly broken in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort's new industry exclusive toe box construction eliminates the break in period for a fit that feels just as good from shop floor to season opener, and every day thereafter.

1:1 Boot Lasting - Every Burton liner is factory molded with the "Last" inside the shell to ensure a superior, out-of-box fit with precise, liner-to-shell integration. 1:1 lasting means that every half and full size liner gets a matching half and full size shell and outsole for the best possible fit with the smallest possible footprint.

1 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 2 years from the time of purchase. Warranty includes manufacturer defects in materials and workmanship only and DOES NOT cover damage due to normal wear and tear, damage from resting your board's edge on your boot while on the chairlift, or damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility.
