Product Info

Like a finely tuned European sports car, the Burton Ion Snowboard Boots combine high-tech features with precision, power and style. Speed Zone™ lacing gets you in your boots and on the mountain as fast as possible, while the Infinite Ride™ 4 liner keeps you as comfortable as a kitten in a basket full of warm laundry all day long. This boot also offers Edmund Hillary-esque grip in the way of a Pirelli® Rubber and Snow Tire Tread. If you are looking to send it hard and look good doing it, the Burton Ion Snowboard Boots are for you.

Product Details

Flex

Flex Rating: 8 (1 Softest - 10 Stiffest)A stiff flex for shredding hard anywhere on the mountain

Fit

Total Comfort ConstructionGet an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort's industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from opening day to day 100.

Outer Shell Pressure Relief PanelUltra-soft gel cushioning is fused to the area where the ankle strap rests on the Ion boot for even pressure distribution when bindings are cranked tight.

Power Up Firm Flex Thin Profile 3D® Molded TongueAdjusting the profile of the tongue's thickness controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap, and reduces shell. // Liner stack-up for improved comfort.

Seamless Power Spine BackstayThis allows for fine-tuned medial // Lateral support, edge-to-edge response and durability

Liner

Infinite Ride 4 LinerSewn liners are an industry standby and that's why Burton decided to break the mold with its stitch-less technology. Built with a 3D molding process, the Infinite Ride™ liners elevate out-of-the-box consistency for a precise fit while also enhancing the ride with greater rebound and cushioning that won't break down or pack out.

Heat MoldableWhether you have funky cankles or a grotesque sixth toe, your feet will be wrapped with comfort in this boot. Ride them right out of the box or shape them to your foot with Burton's EMU heat-molding system, found at your local shop.

VELCO® liner closure

Tuff Cuff with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace LockAnkle 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. Quick-Lock design keeps your heels locked down all day. Exit''s a cinch with the one-handed release tab.

Sock LockThis directional fiber lining allows your feet to easily slide into place and stay in place from first chair to last call.

DRYRIDE Moisture Wicking Tech

Aegis™ Antimicrobial CoatingThis technology stops your feet from smelling so bad that your dog won't even greet you when you get home.

Rad PadThe pad is located on the top of your instep, right where the internal laces exert the most pressure, a Rad Pad has pre-curved panels for extra comfort, support and long-wear.

Lacing System

Speed Zone™ LacingLightning fast lacing control at its finest. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds; because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap and better response, all with less effort.

Footbed

Level 3 molded EVA footbed with ESS support shank, dual-density cushioning and Aegis™

Sole

Low-Profile EST® Optimized MidsoleEST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST lowers your center of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts.

AutoCANT CushioningDual-density EVA allows your foot to settle into a more natural and relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control.

ReBounce CushioningA PU layer within the shell of the boot that enhances cushioning

Pirelli® Rubber and Snow Tire Tread inspired outsole design

Shrinkage Footprint Reduction TechnologyThis reduces the boot's overall footprint on 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.

Additional Features

Snow-Proof Internal GussetAll Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.

EXTREME ANKLE PAIN

      Comments about Burton Ion Snowboard Boots 2014:

      Got the 2014 Ions but since day one they have been giving me extreme ankle pain since the first run. Heat molded after that and didn't help, did it again with no improvement. Had a couple different shops tell me to wait and they will break in but its been about 30 days now and its getting worse. Liner seems to be breaking down more and offering little to no protection. Contacted Burton and they won't warranty them even though there is clearly something wrong with the boot. This is the tenth burton boot I've owned and first one to give me problems. First time I've also had problems with Burtons warranty.
      They completely changed the liner for 2014. BUYERS BEWARE!

        This boot is the pinnacle of snowboard boot technology. Easy to use speed lacing system , super comfy liner. The Pirelli snow tire sole with mucho dampening is sic. a flat sole for more contact with the binding and board.
        They really do have a broken in feel out of the box! Flex is 7-8 new!

        Comments about Burton Ion Snowboard Boots 2014:

        I bought these boots at the end of the year and took them out on mainly high speed groomers. They were extremely stiff for my liking but provided good support for the legs. After 3 days of cold hard mornings and soupy afternoons my shins were hammered by the pressure points of where I was leaning into them. The lacing is awesome on Burton's, but I found the bottom housing of the lacing was a pressure point that was digging into the top/side of both my feet. I hope it's one of those things that goes away after riding them for a bit and same with the pressure points on my shins. I like the boots other than that and hope the specifics of this review go away over time.

                Wow. Where to start? The stiffness and feel for your board is unreal. I've never felt so controlled and confident and the Pirelli sole has a lot to do with it. A legitimate true fit. If you wear a size 10 off the slopes, a size 10 Ion will do the trick. Hands down, the most comfortable pair of boots I've ever worn.

                  Go into the store, look at the liner. After realizing how revolutionary it is, try it on. Take them off. Give EVO your money. I did.
                  If you value comfort, performance and innovation this boot should definitely be considered!
