The Burton Ion Leather Snowboard Boot combines the upscale style of genuine full-grain leather with uncompromising support for high-speed charging. Designed for aggressive all-terrain performance, the Ion Leather offers a stiff flex that's perfect for hitting everything from gigantic pipe walls to steep chutes in the backcountry. Outer Shell Pressure Relief Panels place soft gel cushioning where your bindings cinch down to alleviate pressure points and hot spots. The rich leather upper offers a refreshing respite from the neon colorways and busy graphics commonly found on snowboard boots, and is also tough-wearing against the rips and tears commonly experienced with synthetic boot shells. The Life liner is highly resistant to breakdown without it feeling flimsy or compromising support after multiple seasons of hard riding. It offers the customizable fit and responsive feel you've come to expect from top-tier boots, upgraded with DryRide Heat Cycle lining for thermally-activated warmth in frigid conditions.
