Burton Ruler -

Burton Ruler Boot - Men's:  Rule the world!  Like the Burton Ion, but a lot easier on the wallet.  Push your skills to the pro level with the Ruler.  Better get a bigger tape to measure your cliff drops with the Ruler!

Speed Zone Lacing.
Lightning fast lacing control. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds, and because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response--with less effort. Virtually indestructible, New England Ropes' laces are the same stuff used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams.
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology.
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.
Speed Zone™ Lacing System.
Lightning fast lacing control. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds, and because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response—with less effort. Virtually indestructible, New England Ropes’ laces are the same stuff used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams.
Winder Handles.
Speed Zone™ winder handles make it easy to grip the laces and pull them tight, with or without gloves on, and also offer a convenient spot to wind up the extra lace cable.
Imprint™ 2 Liner.
1. NEW Lock-Up Cuff and Inner Lace Lock 2. NEW Plush Cuff 1.0 [Women’s Only] 3. Lightweight Power Panels 4. Hot Pockets Heated by Little Hotties® [Women’s Only] 5. NEW Velcro® Liner Closure 6. Level 1 Molded EVA Footbed 7. Heat-Moldable.
Lock-Up Cuff.
This new, super low-profile inner cuff carries the laces across the forefoot and ankle for ultimate heel hold with effortless entry and exit.
Man Fur.
Shaven off the back of a yeti, Man Fur on select men's boot liners keeps your dogs comfortably caged with monsterous amounts of warmth and plush comfort.
270º Cushioning.
A larger airbag covers approximately 75% of the midsole for unstoppable impact protection and reduced weight.
Power Spine Backstay.
Allow for fine-tuned medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response, and durability.
3D® Molded Tongue.
Adjusting 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. Offered in soft, medium, and firm flexing options.
Total Comfort Construction.
Get 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 shop floor to season opener, and every day thereafter.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset.
All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption.

Traction and Grip:

  • To make entry and exit easy, Burton added a pull loop on the tongue as well as a lace pull tab that releases both the upper and lower zones simultaneously
  • Streamlined Speed Zone shell lacing lets you fine-tune the upper and lower zones in seconds; this system offers powerful rebound, wrap and response with minimal effort


  • Made in China

Burton Ruler Snowboard Boot - Men's: A revolutionary boot for a new age of riding, Burton Snowboards brings you the Ruler.

Take it from the baby park to the big line with the Ruler™ from Burton Snowboards. A lightweight, medium flex boot with more technology than you can wrap your head around. With 270º Airbag Cushioning and NEW Total Comfort Construction, this is a Burton Boot that can handle any on-hill encounter. The best part – you don’t have to sell any organs to afford them.  

Support: 6


The Burton Ruler snowboard boot is a shred slipper for all-mountain rippers who are trying to make this their best season yet. The medium-stiff flex handles everything from steep trees to big park booters, with enough flex to hit some jib features if the mood strikes you. The Speed Zone dual zone lace system independently adjusts the lower and upper sections of the boot, so your feet stay put, and you have an extra degree of customization over your support. As with the rest of Burton's lineup, Shrinkage technology reduces your footprint by a full boot size, and that means less chance of dragging heels and toes. Flex Notches in the upper allow for an unrestricted flex, that blends solid support with the tweakability you want. When you overshoot a hardpack landing, you'll appreciate the 270 degree Airbags, which protect against heel bruises. If you're trying to stack up as many days as possible this season, you can count on the Ruler. It won't let you down.


If you're going to conquer the mountain, you need comfort, performance, and a perfectly snug fit every time you go out. The Burton Ruler Snowboard Boot has a mid-to-stiff flex that lets you ride fast with stability. The Power Spine Backstay transfers energy to your bindings, making your turns powerful and precise even on heelside. The Ruler Boot also has a 270° Airbag Cushion to mellow out the harshest landings. SpeedZone lacing keeps you locked in, by allowing you to easily cinch the upper and lower sections separately.

Hey you, it's me, your boots talking. Stop being such a pansy already. Listen bro, give these Speed Zone™ laces a quick pull and send it. Don't even worry about how flat the landing is, I got that 270 degree Airbag going on for cushioning that's twice as nice. Yeah, I may look skinny, but that's just cause I reduced my weight and profile with Shrinkage™. Come on, just stick your foot in me already, it's awesome inside.

It is my first snowboard boots.
Very comfortable, good lateral support. Very comfortable lacing system of internal and external boots. Very convenient to take off one's shoes after a day of skiing. The sole is not slippery.

These are the first snowboard boots I have owned and they are amazing! So comfortable and I didn't even have to break them in. I would suggest anyone buy these boots.
