If a super high-tech robot and a pro snowboarder had a baby, the Burton SLX Snowboard Boots would be that baby. The SLX boots feature a wide range of Burton technologies such as Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction, Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongue, Imprint 5™ Liner, and Burton's Total Comfort Construction. This boot will wrap your feet in comfort while giving you the best all-day performance, response, and durability of any boot on the market.
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) 7, perfect for all-day comfort and a stiffer more responsive performance
Power Spine Backstays These seamless asymmetrical backstays allow for fine-tuned medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response, and maximum durability.
Lightweight Power Panels To ensure consistent flex from day 1 to 100, this boot features strategically placed Power Panels that return to their original position even after being deeply flexed.
Easy Slide Articulating Cuff This cuff allows the upper and lower zones of the boot to flex independently, creating fluid forward motion, minimizing shell distortion, and maximizing heel hold and response.
Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongue This medium flex molded tongue adjusts the profile of the tongue's thickness, controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap the foot/ankle/lower leg, and reduces shell/liner stack-up for improved comfort.
S4 Bombshell Construction This evenly distributes strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex season after season. The S4 Bombshell Construction uses these shells for ultimate response and durability.
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology This reduces the boot's overall footprint one size, meaning a men's size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, and sleeker means that you will never have to suffer from toe drag again.
VELCRO® Brand Fastener J-Bar Interface This interface is located in the heel pocket for added support.
Total Comfort Construction An instantly broken-in feel right out of the box
Imprint 5™ Liners
DRYRIDE Moisture Wicking Tech DRYRIDE Hyperwick™ mesh in the toe box insulates and regulates warmth by pulling moisture away from your skin, then evaporating it through a 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.
Heat Moldable Whether 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.
Rad Pad This cushioning is located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure. These pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
Rebound Rods Keep your feet locked, loaded and totally supported while you charge hard
Sock Lock This directional fiber lining allows your feet to easily slide into place and stay in place all day.
VELCRO® Brand Fastener Liner Closure This secures the liner in place around your foot. J-Bar adjustable heel system slides into the heel pocket for added support.
Speed Zone™ Lacing Customize the fit of the upper and lower zone in seconds, allowing for a lightning fast lace up. With less effort you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response. Used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams, this lace material is virtually indestructible.
Level 3 Molded EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank and Dual-Density Cushioning
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating Inhibits foul odors
Vibram® EcoStep™ Plus Outsole Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight, 50% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA for long-lasting shock absorption
B3 Gel This gel is placed in the heel and toe for ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down.
infiniFIT Liner Sole Creates a more consistent out-of-box fit that stays true-to-size by preventing pack-out
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset Features internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry

Comments about Burton SLX Snowboard Boots 2013:
I have wide feet and was hesitant to get this boot over my Salomon Synapse Wides. I can easily say that it was the right decision. I just leave the bottom part of the laces loose and tighten up the upper part and it is ready to go. Good support, great comfort, and incredibly fast toe and heel switches. The only downside is that my toes got a little cold on a 20F day. So if you are looking for a very warm boot, this might not be it.
