    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.

    Nice But Not For Everyone

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First don't be fooled because they feel way tight out of box. After a the liner molds (few days) they are much more roomy than you’d expect. They are also CRAZY stiff on day 1... which was not my fav. But after 6 days now the shells are creasing and have some flex to them which I am learning to like. The lace guides are already showing some tearing at the seams from the stress... I am worried if they will last. I have skinny ankles and heels so the heel lift in these is extreme. I am going to have to add a special foot bed to fill the volume, since they are too stiff to simply tighten down more. These boots are not for everyone.

    Great Boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    One of the best boots ever owned. I've had it for two seasons now and it's still functioning like new. Very stiff and responsive, and it goes well with stiffer boards such as Custom X and Flight Attendant.

    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.

    I'm in the same boat: liked my old driver-x boots and am wondering how the latest version compares. The exterior looks a little bit cheaper to me -- I hope it isn't indicative of overall build quality.

    Can anyone else chime in?

    I want to say i am on my 5th pair of driver x,
    This year’s MY2016/17 driver x feel stiffer than my previous driver x MY 2013/14 and prior MY back to 2008(?), but i never installed the tongue inserts that came with them, this year's does not come with an insert. But the tongue alone is much stiffer on this years’ versus the other 2 older pairs I still have. I only have about 10 days on this year's versus about 150+ on the previous pairs that are thoroughly packed out. So the comparison is not the apples to apples.
    With only 10 days in no issues, but just getting them broken in. all my previous pairs lasted well and the outside got a little chewed up but not significantly. The pair w 150+ days only external issue is the top piece over the top of my foot ripped out from the tongue and gets snow in there. In area no big deal, backcountry it does lead to more moisture in the boot.
    I have been using the retired pairs for the backcountry and the new pair for the resorts. The packed out one are nice for skinning up, but another item to tighten up during transition.
