If you're an experienced all-mountain rider looking for a solid, medium-stiff boot and don't want to break the piggy-bank, the Ion boots should be at the top of your list. Burton's Speed Zone™ lacing system featured is reliable, fast and less expensive than Boa® systems. Plus, little concepts like dual-density footbed support, ReBounce cushioning and a pressure relief panel work to reduce foot/leg fatigue so you can stay out longer and have more fun.

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.
ReBounce Cushioning Underfoot - More comfort and more warmth is the Burton-exclusive upgrade of Rebounce Cushioning. The extra hops are accomplished by surrounding the foot inside the shell of the boot with a two-layer 3D laminate of cushy PU plus reflective material, which not only reduces impact and absorbs chatter but also turns heat inward.
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.
Life Liner - The Life liner fuses lightweight materials with a more relaxed feel for high-end performance that makes all the difference during long seasons filled with hard charging days. The responsive PU tongue provides a combo of cat-like quickness and long-term resistance to breakdown, while also accommodating a better fit for all foot shapes.
Tuff Cuff Liner Wrap - Ankle support and inner cuff stability is mandatory in a pro-level boot. Burton's solution is the Tuff Cuff, which increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel.
Outer Shell Pressure Relief Panel - Ultra-soft gel cushioning is fused to the area where the ankle strap rests on the boot to evenly distribute pressure when bindings are cranked tight.
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.
AutoCANT Sole Cushioning - Dual density EVA allows your foot to settle into the most natural and relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control.
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.
