Burton's Hail Snowboard Boot was built for the park. It has a soft design, but with plenty of support. A traditional lacing system is always customized and comfortable.

It is also coated with an antimicrobial Aegis™ coating to prevent odors. The new Holy Shit Outsole is supportive, responsive and comfortably cushioned. Burton's Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology reduces your footprint by a full size to eliminate toe drag and lighten the boot.

The Burton Hail snowboard boot has become a fast favorite for its freestyle-friendly flex and all-mountain versatility. The medium flex handles everything on the mountain, but it's really in its element when you get it into the park. Traditional laces keep it light, and let you fine-tune where and how tight your boots are. The lacing gets a hand from the Exo-Wrap reinforced lower lacing, which keeps your foot stuck in place without having to crank down too hard on your laces.

Like the rest of Burton's lineup, Shrinkage technology reduces your footprint by a full boot size, and that means less toe drag. The articulated cuff frees up the flex, for skate-shoe inspired freedom without sacrificing support. The Holy Shit sole system is no joke―it combines tons of cushioning with greater articulation for perfect tweaks and unrestricted balance for unleashing your deepest, darkest jib fantasies. If you're a park shark that isn't afraid to take your moves to the rest of the mountain, the Hail is all the backup you need.

You'll be dodging bullets and flying by trees in comfort with the Burton™ Hail snow boot.
Shrinkage™ technology offers an incredibly snug fit without any additional toe drag for a sleeker and lighter fit.
Snow-proof gusset keeps out all the snow to keep you warm and dry all day.
Rad Pad feature helps to alleviate the pressure on your foot for lace comfort of the liner.
Flex Liner offers an amazing combination of medial and lateral support from neoprene stretch zones that hug your calves.
270º Airbag Cushioning offers more comfort and less weight. Covers approximately 75% of the midsole for enhanced impact protection.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial help keep the funk out of your boots after a long day of use.
Articulating cuff eliminates hi-back pinch when tweaking, especially when riding winged hi-backs and also aids in weight reduction. More comfort, less fatigue, more time on the hill.
Strategically placed flex notches allow for smoother, more fluid lateral and medial flex.
Super Grip Toe offers better balance and prevents slipping.
Ultra Cush Park 2 molded three-layer EVA footbed.

Positive Reviews:

I'm personally not the biggest fan of Burton products. but when it comes to their boots, no one can touch them. The burton hail boots have been my favorite park boots ever. and I've had alot of different boots. They fit to your foot and mold so well its like skate shoes. You will never have cold feet. EVER. and you will never have wet feet until you tear these things apart. The feel and flex is perfect. You want to murder rails and bash metal objects then throw hard on jumps any size? these are the boots for the job. They also fit incredibly slim, so you don't have all this extra weight or bulkiness in your bindings. Shrinkage technology has also always been awesome to me. It really does create less toe or heal drag, and when you ride Bear Mountain like i used to where it can get pretty slushy at mid day, you definitely don't want much drag. I've landed to flats plenty of times and have died on tricks in these but I never have had heel bruising or shin splints through out the whole season of hard riding. my ankles were too extremely happy. Get these boots, don't even think twice about it.

First time dealing with Zappos and I was quite impressed. Easy to use, clear information, no surprises and most prompt delivery service. Excellent price on the product and they appear to be excellent boots. Good fit out of the box. Maybe a little snug, but I am sure that they will pack out a bit. Very comfortable and supportive. After two seasons of double BOA's, my feet and ankles were so sore that I thought that I might have to quit snowboarding (too easy to over-tighten, too tricky to avoid "hot spots"). Going back to a lace-up is an immediate relief, and lace-ups have come a long way. These mid-stiff boots should be perfect for my feet while delivering enough response and support for my all-mountain riding. End of season, so I only had a chance to wear them once, but they seem to be just what I was seeking, at the best price on the net. Well done, Zappos!

I am a true 8.5, I bought a 9 in this boot and it is at the very edge of being too small. Done over again I would have bought a 9.5. Great boot overall, esp for a narrow foot and someone looking for a slightly stiffer boot. Only 2 complaints: 1) I have very high arches and my arches were sore after every day; and 2) The laces are also very soft. I ratchet my boots down very tight but one of the laces started to tear on the second day of wearing. Burton shipped me a replacement pair right away, no charge.

Boots have been the hardest thing for me to find out of all my gear. Usually I have issues with my feet being cold, or really bad pressure points, feet falling asleep...the list goes on. I was recommended the Hail by the Burton Rep, told me it was what he rode. When I tried it on, instantly stoked. My heel didn't slip, the top of my foot...no pressure whatsoever. This is the first time my foot has felt this snug in a boot.

Negative Reviews:

Not the biggest fan. bought it for the articulating ankle so it doesn't bunch around the ankle? but it still does.
