If you're the type of rider that views the entire mountain with a narcotic tingle of delight, the Burton Men's Ruler Snowboard Boot satisfies your insatiable desire for riding everything in your path with iconic versatility that's equally confident dropping into waist-deep powder at the summit and sending thirty foot kickers in the park. The Ruler's happy-medium flex is neither overly aggressive nor noodly soft, striking the sweet spot for all-terrain domination when you're only rocking one boot throughout the entire season. Burton outfitted the Ruler with Speed Zone lacing for a fine-tuned fit over the upper and lowers with the simple pull of a lacing handle. This allows you to dial in the exact fit and feel for the terrain at hand, regardless if you like your boots tight and slop-free for charging or a bit softer for park laps.
Preventing frozen feet on sub-zero shred days, Burton integrated the fiery warmth of 3M Thinsulate into the Imprint 2 liner. This thermo-moldable liner provides a custom fit by molding to your feet as you ride throughout the season, ensuring every ride is free of painful pressure points. The Man Fur lining ensures fuzzy comfort, and the Lock-Up cuff provides greater response by eliminating dreaded heel lift.
The Ruler comes in two distinctive soles, one working better for freestyle riders and the other catered to freeriders seeking better grip and durability. The EST-optimized, low-profile sole on the Black/Multi and Brick colorways drops the boot's overall height for increased sensory feedback when you're lapping the park and taking your tricks to natural features. A rugged alternative, the Dynogrip sole on the Black and White/Black colorways provides extra grip when you're hiking for fresh turns. Both soles use B3 Gel padding in the heel to smooth out flat landings and excess vibration across rough, choppy snow.
