Powerful and precise.
Japanese powder destroyer Tadashi Fuse's boot of choice for dropping cliffs and sending kickers in the backcountry, the Deeluxe Men's Empire Speedlace Snowboard Boot offers powerful response and uncompromising support for taking a freestyle-focused approach to big-mountain riding. Its asymmetric shell provides ankle articulation for tweaking out grabs and getting creative on natural terrain. However, this boot still retains a highly responsive flex, especially considering its Dupont Surlyn backstay, which seamlessly transfers energy for powerful heelside turns. And for riders who demand even more response, Deeluxe offers two different TPS shields (sold separately) to boost the boot's overall stiffness.
Equipped with Deeluxe's D-Tex waterproof/breathable membrane, the Empire won't succumb to sopping-wet slush or bottomless powder, ensuring total dryness through the wettest possible conditions. Its heat-moldable Empire TF liner wraps around your foot and upper shin for the best possible fit, conforming to the shape of your foot over time. This ensures a truly custom feel without nasty pressure points ruining your time on the mountain.
Section Control Lacing allows you to adjust the different zones of the boot with the quick yank of a cord, giving you custom control that only takes seconds to dial in. Adding even more support along the upper shin, the boot's Powerstrap delivers extra stiffness when you're charging at high speeds. The Remedy outsole has a streamlined silhouette, which, in addition to shaving weight, allows crampons to more closely hug the sole, and the fade-out profile minimizes toe and heel drag. Rubber spikes ensure reliable traction on sketchy slopes, and sharp edges aid in traversing to hidden pow stashes.
