One boot to rule them all.
Designed with the idea that one boot should effortlessly transition from fresh powder in the morning to park kickers in the afternoon, the Burton Men's Ruler Snowboard Boot reins in incredible versatility and iconic performance with its cushioned comfort and responsive flex. As always, Burton outfitted these legendary boots with their Shrinkage Footprint Tech, making your boot's footprint one size smaller.
Loaded with Burton's Speed Zone lacing, the Ruler allows you to independently tighten the upper and lower zones to your specific tastes. Tighten both for the utmost in powerful precision or keep the upper a bit looser for a more skate-like feel. Either way, it's totally up to you, which is exactly what Burton intended. Both lace handles conveniently tuck into their own side slots for convenient storing.
Warmer than most boots on the market, Burton integrated synthetic insulation into the boot's Imprint 2 liner. 3M insulation traps fiery heat, preventing frigid temperatures from freezing your feet. This liner is fully thermo-moldable, allowing you to customize the fit straight from the box or mold them as you ride throughout the season. Additionally, you'll find nice additions, such as Man Fur lining, as well as a Lock-Up Cuff for extra heel hold.
New for this year, the Ruler features two options for the sole. Both the Black and Gray/Burgundy colorways feature a DynoGrip sole with reinforced rubber along the toe and heel. This is a great choice if you regularly hike out-of-bounds or boot-pack for long distances, as the reinforced rubber stands up to regular use and abuse from hiking. Offering a low-profile, skate-like alternative, the Black/Multi colorway features an EST-optimized sole for better board feel and control underfoot. Note that both models feature B3 Gel padding in the heel to dissipate impacts and harsh landings.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are really comfortable and warm boots. I would size up. I wear a street size 10.5 and ordered the 11 and they were still really tight. The 11.5 fit perfect.
All around awesome
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
During the initial time riding with the ruler, I have found the boot to be stiff in all the right places. Also the quick lace system is much faster than the traditional boot lace. Moreover, these boots have decreased the amount of heal drag that I was previously experiencing with my old pair of DC boots. I am highly satisfied with this button boot and would recommend to anyone who enjoy riding all mountain and especially the park.
So if I wear a 12 I need a 13? And if that's true when will you have size 13 in stock?
I think it really depends on how you like to ware your boots if you like them to be a little more on the comfort side of things I would go with the size 13(witch we have in the green color) but if you are used to a more snug fit in your boots the 12 might work for you.
