Hard-charging freeride favorite.

At home dropping spines in Alaska's Chugach Range? How about hucking cliffs and slaying steeps in Colorado's San Juan Mountains? Ridden by freeride pioneer Terje Haakonsen, the Burton Men's Driver X Snowboard Boot delivers the hard-charging response needed to rip the gnarliest lines on the planet. Often referred to as the stiffest boot ever produced, it's no secret that the Driver X is a favorite among freeride fanatics who spend every waking moment accessing untouched snow and seriously steep terrain.

Designed with Burton's renowned Speed Zone Lacing, the Driver X allows you to quickly and easily adjust the tightness of the upper and lower areas independently. This is especially crucial when you're hiking to lines along exposed ridgelines where fumbling with traditional laces is anything but fun. There's also an internal harness to dial-in the fit on the inside, and it easily cinches shut with the slide of the lace lock for all-day support.

Loaded with Burton's top-shelf Imprint 3X liner, the Driver X offers heat-moldable customization, should you opt for a foot-conforming fit right from the box. And with Total Comfort Construction, there's no uncomfortable break-in period. The liner's Tuff Cuff increases heel hold by wrapping the ankle with medial and lateral support. Additionally, the liner is treated with an Aegis antimicrobial coating to resist the growth odor-causing microbes through the course of the season.

Additional freeride-worthy features include the thermoplastic-reinforced PowerUp Plus Tongue that increases response when you're blasting turns down steep faces. The Level 2 Molded EVA footbed cushions heavy drops and smooths out the ride in rough terrain. The sole is reinforced by an ESS Support Shank to keep your arch from collapsing when you drop huge cliffs and drops. Adding warmth on sub-zero shred days, the boot's Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil reflects body heat back to your foot for all-day warmth. Add in a rugged Vibram EcoStep outsole with rubber ice spikes for traction on the sketchiest slopes, and you have a boot that's ready for serious missions in the backcountry.

Poor Quality and Durability

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They start out great but the liners pack out in about 20 days; Shell flex softens significantly at around 30 days. Exterior shell material peels off with use. These boots are meant for urban weekend warriors. Forgot about heat molding the liners or split-boarding in these boots, you will just accelerate their decline.

There are better offerings in the same price range. Had 14/15 & 15/16, quality has not improved and both versions lasted about 1 month.

Most Awesome Stiff Boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I haven't always been the biggest fan of burton softgoods, but my driver X's are a complete exception. I absolutely love these boots. They are the toughest bit of my gear. Just about everything else I've replaced or worn through - except these. They have been everywhere with me over the last 5 years.



A lot of my turns have been earned and this is where they've taken a beating. From bush bashing in Australia just to get to the snow line to thigh crushing traverses of lateral moraine in NZ - these boots just keep giving.



I've replaced the laces on one boot, which is easy to do in the field.



I'm starting to think about replacing the boots altogether as they're wearing out (slowly), I'm hoping the build quality is still there with new ones.



They're certainly a stiff boot, which I really like - it helps split boarding. In terms of fit, I have a wide foot and they seem to suit that.
