The Burton SLX Snowboard Boot is packed with more high-tech materials than you'd think possible. Burton used Shrinkage Technology to reduce the footprint by one whole size. This gives big-footed riders a break from toe and heel drag, and it provides a more lightweight feel to all riders. The SLX has SpeedZone lacing, which lets you cinch the upper and lower separately. It's easy to use, and gives you a much more snug fit than traditional laces. Since you're likely to ride hard in these boots, Burton added another layer of dampening. ReBounce polyurethane eats up impacts and vibration so you stay comfy.

Burton pulled out all the stops with the Men's SLX snowboard boot to make sure it'll step to everything on the mountain. The mid-stiff flex will have you stomping landings on the biggest jumps around, and yet you'll still have enough flex to handle the occasional jib session. There's an articulating cuff for unrestricted shredding, and the Speed Zone lace system makes it easy to dial in your fit and keep it that way. The SLX pretty much has more tech than your phone, so you can focus on your next hit, not your sore feet.
Team-driven design and technical mastery in snowboarding's most comfortable and capable boot.

It's got all the nice features and looks great to boot! Took about a day and a half to break it in, but I didn't try to heat mold it or anything.
These do run a bit small though (normal Burton) I normally wear an 11.5, got a 12, and it was just barely big enough. Once it was broken in it was fine, but there was some toe pain for that first day!
I do love these boots though, very sexy!
