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.

DRYRIDE Heat Cycle™ Lining - Dryride Hyperwick mesh in the toe box both insulates and regulates warmth by pulling moisture away from your skin, then evaporating it through a waterproof/breathable shell membrane. Like a one-way door, the microscopic pores in this membrane allow moisture vapors to escape, while water droplets from the outside can't enter.

S4 Shell Panels - Superlight and resilient. Strategically placed S4 shell panels evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound while resisting breakdown for consistent boot flex, season after season.

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.

Vibram® EcoStep™ Rubber Outsole (30% Recycled) - Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight with 30% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.


Imprint™ 3 Liner - Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed offers enhanced arch support, improved response, and even more shock absorbing power.

Focus Cuff Heel Hold System boosts heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle while riding slightly higher for increased response.

Hook and Loop J-Bar Interface allows you to add or remove support to the boot’s heel pocket for a customized fit.

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

Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Your feet and your friends will thank you for sure.

ESS Support Shank adds support to reduce fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.

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.


Hook and Loop Liner Closure.

Focus Cuff Liner Wrap - Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response.


Firm Flex Thin Profile 3D Molded Tongue - Adjusting the profile of the tongue's thickness controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap the forefoot, and reduces shell/liner stack up for improved comfort. Offered in soft, medium, and firm flexing options based on the ride of each boot.

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.


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

EST® Optimized Midsole - EST® provides you with a more direct connection to your board by eliminating the ramp angle of your outsole. This in turn lowers your center of gravity and improves board feel to create a more surf/skate like feel without sacrificing on cushioning.


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 1 year 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.

Excellent boot for the price

Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots - black/red
Boot fits very well. Significantly less heel lift than other boots that I have owned, Though it is not eliminated completely. All of the drawstrings do their jobs very well, so getting a nice snug fit is relatively easy. These boots are much lighter and less bulky than other models I have owned, which is good considering I have size 13 feet.

Great moderately stiff boot

Burton Imperial Snowboard Boots (Closeout) - black/green/red
Disclaimer, I have only worn these inside since it's August here in FL. I am comparing these boots to the Burton Ambush which were my first boots. The Imperial has more distal foot and toe room even though the exterior dimensions subjectively are the same. For me, with a slightly wider foot, the Imperial is immediately more comfortable for my feet. The Imperials integrate with my Genesis bindings better too. Also, there is better heal grab. Finally, these boots are moderately stiff compared to the Ambush which is good for a boarder that is advancing in skills. I like my older Ambush boots but now that I have the Imperials, I am not looking back.
