Burton Imperial 12/13 4.5 5 2 2
New boots for 2012/13 I've waited a while for some new boots and these fit beautifully. The laces are a doddle to do up and they look great. They also have Vibram soles which should last a lot longer than the tred on some of the more expensive boots. Only time will tell if the white tops will stay in that condition. I'll certainly keep them out of as much slush as I can. Bring on the snow and the walk to the lifts. 26 November 2012
They are kinda cool Love this boot. Love looking at this boot love boarding in this boot and there are two of them too boot. Yes it has the great sole the fantastic two zone lace system and the Burton brand name but it also has great aesthetic appeal. We've fast became best friends. 06 November 2012

The Imperial is a more supportive boot than either the Ruler or Moto and is suited to riders that want a bit more response for going faster, and more grip for hiking missions into the side and back country. Stepping up in construction you get rubber ice spikes and a Vibram Ecostep outsole with B3 Gel for better cushioning. It also features Speed Zone for hassle free closure and Total Comfort Construction for out of box comfort.

Glossary

Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Tech:Reduces the boot's overall footprint a full size, meaning a men's size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker - never suffer from toe drag again.
Speed Zone Lacing System:Gives you lightning fast lacing control. Customizes the fit of the upper or lower zone. Powerful system so you get more rebound/wrap and better response with less effort. Virtually indestructible, it features injected lace guides that aid in shell wrap for a better fit, reduced friction and easy upgrading.
Imprint 3 Liner:Focus Cuff Heel Hold System w/Velcro J-Bar Interface & Inner Lace Lock, Lightweight Power Panels, Sock Lock, Rad Pad, Velcro Liner Closure, Level 2 Moulded EVA footbed w/ESS Support Shank & Aegis Antimicrobial coating, Heat mouldable.
Focus Cuff:Boosts heel hold by hugging the sweet spot on your ankle and increases response for all-mountain agility.
Velcro J-Bar interface:Positioned in the heel pocket for added support.
Inner lace lock:Quick-lock design keeps heels locked down all day. Uses a one-handed release tab.
Power Panels:To ensure a consistent flex, the liner features strategically placed panels that, even afterbeing deeply flexed, return to their original position.
Sock Lock:Directional fibre lining allows feet to easily slide into place and stay there all day.
Rad Pad:Located on the top of the instep where the laces exert most pressure, these pre-curved panels keep feet happy for hours.
Aegis Antimicrobial coating:This antimicrobial coating inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria.
EST-Optimized midsole:Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, it lowers your centre of gravity and improves feel. Control your set-up without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts.
B3 Gel:Cushioning used in Burton boots that is focused under the heels for impact protection. Provides ultimate dampening and withstands repeated impacts without breaking down.
AutoCANT Cardinal cushioning:Dual-density EVA allows the foot to settle into the most relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control.
Vibram EcoStep Rubber outsole:Backed by nearly 70 years of mountaineering knowledge for superior traction, feel and light weight.
S4 Shell Panels:Evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex season after season.
Thin Profile 3D moulded tongue:Enhances forefoot wrap and reduces shell/liner stack up for improved comfort.
Total Comfort Construction:Gives an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box that feels just as good from shop floor to season opener, and every day thereafter.
Snowproof internal gusset:The tongue has an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot.
