All-terrain freestyle junkie.

The Burton Men's Ambush Snowboard Boot is a versatile, mid-flexing boot that's great for someone looking to take his freestyle skills to the entire mountain. Using quick and efficient Speed Zone Lacing, the Ambush's upper and lower zones can be tightened independently, allowing you to dial-in your preferred fit for all-mountain action. Its Wishbone upper features Jumper Cables, which are high-rebound rods on both the medial and lateral sides. These rods help you snap into turns without sacrificing tweakability for park and freestyle riding. Additionally, the boot's oversized flex notches offer articulation, allowing for a smoother flex without much shell distortion.

Inside the boot, you'll find a heat-moldable Imprint 3 liner with a Focus Cuff Heel Hold system. This system prevents dreaded heel lift when you're carving around the mountain, especially if you install the removable J-Bars for added support. Additionally, the boot's DynoLite EST sole offers maximum board feel, injecting a skate-like feel into your riding experience, as well as absorbing bumps and harsh landings with its integrated B3 gel cushioning.

These boots are the bomb

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a pair of these from 2011 that I bought online and had never been used, so I decided to put 'em through the wringer. These boots are the best boots I've used for snowboarding so far (I haven't tried any 32 boots yet.). They're comfy, warm, and have just the right amount of flex to them. The speed lacing makes for easy on and off which is really convenient for on-hill adjustments. My only problem is that on warmer days a lot of water would get into the boots from the gaps on the sides, (between the tongue of the boot and the sides of the outer shell) but other than that they are awesome. Highly recommend for anybody looking for an all-mountain boot that looks great and rides even better.

Extremely comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are my first pair of snowboarding boots. They fit great and have no pressure points for me. I was comfortable wearing these all day and only needed to tighten the laces occasionally.

Comfortable and easy to put on

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are the third pair of boots I have tried, and only the second pair I've actually ridden in.

Taking them out of the box you'll immediately notice their light weight and smaller foot profile. Burton is offering the shrinkage footprint tech on this boot and it makes for a sleeker look not to mention eliminating toe drag. The heel/back spine of the boot is nice and firm. The liner is very comfortable; when fully put on and laced I experienced a little more heel lift than other more rigid boots, but that was minimized after being fully strapped into my bindings. Being a skateboarder first, I cannot appreciate the EST style more. My feet feel right at home.

My initial impressions after one full day of riding are great; the boot has stayed comfortable the entire day and slight adjustments were pain free. These boots were precise for how soft they feel compared to more rigid boots and were as responsive as I initially thought/hoped for. They were comfortable walking in; I haven't had any issues slipping however can't offer much more about traction on slipper surfaces as we haven't encountered any. I can tell that they will definitely take less time to break in and I cannot be happier with that.

I typically wear a 10.5 size shoe with my feet unfortunately not being uniform, and these boots in size 10 are perfect.

Didn't have to worry about my boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a newby boarder and these were literally the first pair of snowboard boots I have every put on. They were very light and easy to wear. I've spent hours learning the skill of snowboarding and I have had no problems at all with these boots and my feet are comfortable and warm. It was a very nice change after going through many painful trials of different ski boots. I'm impressed after several days and I suspect they'll last me a long time.

Comfort Right Out of the Box!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The best thing about Burton's new boots is they have very little breakin period! They also feature "shrinkage" so us big footed people get a slimmer shell to help with the dreaded toe drag. Lastly the EST style keeps you feeling surf / skate oriented vs the kicked up heel of most snowboard boots! THESE ARE AWESOME BOOTS!

Perfect blend of comfort and mobility.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Picked these up after riding a pair of Burton Rampant boots last season. Just finished my second full day of riding with these bad boys, so take my review with a grain of salt, as these aren't 100% broken-in yet. They seem super responsive, yet not overly stiff, which is exactly what I was looking for in a pair of boots. Plus, the B3 gel in the heel keeps me riding smooth when I land flat or cruise over crud.

First off, you'll notice how freakin' light these are straight from the box. I can literally pick 'em up with my pinkie around the heel loop without straining my finger. Plus, their footprint reduction is amazing. My size 11 boots have the outline of a size 10, meaning I can ride a regular board without resorting to a wider deck.

Second, the Imprint 3 liner is a huge step-up from the Imprint 2 found on the Ruler and Rampant boots. This liner has great heel hold and wraps around my foot and ankle for a super-snug, yet not-too-tight fit. FYI, I have wide, super-flat feel with barely any arch and it's hard to find shred boots that fit properly, so I usually stick with Burton. The first day was a bit painful, as these were too stiff, but I didn't heat mold 'em, so that's to be expected straight from the box. That being said, they're now softening up to my desired medium flex range.

Last thing I'll mention is the super-convenient Speed Lacing System. It took me all of 5 minutes to figure out how to find my ideal tightness in the upper and lower zones. This lacing seems pretty durable, but I'm not sure how long it'll last with me pulling 'em super tight. I guess time will tell.

Oh yeah, the Blimey colorway looks really rad with its bright blue and green hues!

Would you say true to size? I'm always in between 10.5 and 11.

Great review by the way.

Hey Sam,

These boots run true to size. However, I have wider feet, so you may want to downsize if you have narrow feet or skinny heels, as these will pack out about a 1/2-size over time.

I don't know what number should I buy. As I'm not from the US, I can tell you that typically I'm wearing 40 (in European size chart). Can you tell me what number of Burton Ambush boots should I order? My foot has 25 centimeters. Thank you in advance!
