Details

Futuristic performance for discerning riders.

Driven by the needs of 100-day-a-year riders, the Burton Men's SLX Snowboard Boot represents the pinnacle of performance within Burton's line, retaining its mid-stiff flex, high levels of cushioning, and ultra-precise fit without packing out or breaking down over the course of the season. Its futuristic Dragon Skin TPU shell reinforces the boot against rips, scratches, and premature blowouts, which is highly useful for daily riders and those earning turns in the backcountry. Other high-end features include a Vibram XWing sole for rugged resilience and grip, as well as Burton's Speed Zone lacing for quick-and-easy tightening over the upper and lower zones.

Standing out from hordes of other premium boots, the SLX's Infinite Ride 5 Liner is made from open-cell foam that won't break down, giving you a consistently tuned flex without it packing out or losing response. The liner's DryRide Heat Cycle lining uses interwoven, thermally activated carbon to retain extra warmth on sub-zero shred days. Other standout features remain, such as an Aegis antimicrobial coating to combat funky odors, as well as a thermo-moldable fit that eliminates nasty pressure points.

Dissipating impact from harsh landings and choppy conditions, the boot's Rebounce Cushioning surrounds the foot with a double layer of PU-plus for extra shock absorption. Dual-density cushioning along the sole features softer EVA along the instep, with denser EVA along the outer edge. This allows the foot to roll inward for a more natural stance (similar to canting) that reduces stress and fatigue. Add in Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil (underneath footbed) for extra heat retention when you're riding in Arctic cold-snaps and raging snowstorms alike.

Come on, now...

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

I love the Burton Driver X. I go through 3 pair a year at least, and wear the plastic tounge inserts to strengthen the boot up as much as possible..
The SLX sales pitch is- that it will feel more like it started out after 100 days than, say, a Driver X (Which have a ride life of 2 weeks). Well, Burton didnt lie... The boot starts out its life with as much support as an old cotton sock, and continues to offer absolutely no support as you

Stiff cushion

    Prior to this boot I rode the Ruler and. Imperial. This boot is expensive, but noticeably miles beyond the other Burton boots I've used. The stiffness is super responsive and foam cushion in the sole will make u think your are wearing a pair of dunks. The boot is nearly water tight and the foam liner is much more durable that imprint 3 liner. The only regrets on this boot is the ugly "dragon scale" texture and the possibility of them adding a boa lacing system. Else, I'd buy them again in a heartbeat.

    Legit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Does it's job and does it well. Right out of the box it was super comfortable and was awesome on day one. Managed to find a rock in the powder and separated my shoulder on day 2, so not a ton of use, but the boots rocked while I was rocking them.

    Burton SLX is da bomb

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Changed to the SLX/Diode/Vapor after using the driver x ,flow NXT RS /sword duall 163combo that was just to stiff overall.


    This is my Second season wit the Burton Diode Est/Vapor.
    Just so comfortable, no pressure points ever. Snug,almost
    got a 1/2 size larger,but glad i did not. Perfect response/flex
    for all mountain. Used the SLX with a Custom Camber/cartel set up and it works well but probably not the ultimate combination. The boot definitely overpowers the bindings a
    bit.

    Unanswered Question

    Reading a lot on how the Burton's coming up small (esp with the shrinkage footprint). Does anyone have feedback on how the SLX's run to size? I'm a UK10 (wore Nike Lunar Endors in UK10) wondering if I need to go up half a size? Like a snug fit and riding Burton Genesis EST bindings. Thanks
