Versatility reigns supreme.
Carrying the attitude that one boot should conquer everything from steep summits to park kickers, the Burton Men's Ruler Boot reins in iconic versatility with its happy-medium flex that's neither overly aggressive nor noodly soft. As always, Burton outfitted the Ruler with Speed Zone lacing for a fine-tuned fit over the upper and lowers with the simple pull of a lacing handle. Another Burton staple, Shrinkage tech reduces the boot's footprint by an entire size, which is especially useful if you're a size 10 or 11 on a normal-width board.
Preventing frozen feet on sub-zero shred days, Burton integrated the fiery warmth of 3M Thinsulate into the Imprint 2 liner. This thermo-moldable liner provides a custom fit by molding to your feet as you ride throughout the season. The Man Fur lining ensures fuzzy comfort, and the Lock-Up cuff provides greater response by eliminating dreaded heel lift.
The Ruler is offered in two distinctive soles, one working better for freestyle riders and the other catered to freeriders seeking better grip and durability. The EST-optimized, low-profile sole on the Black/Multi and Denim colorways drops the boot's overall height for increased sensory feedback when you're lapping the park and taking your tricks to natural features. A rugged alternative, the Dynogrip sole on the Black and Militant colorways provides extra grip when you're hiking for fresh turns. Both soles use B3 Gel padding in the heel to smooth out flat landings and excess vibration across rough snow.

- Q & A
This Boot Rules
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been rocking an older model of this boot for 5 years now. They lightweight, super-comfortable and feature medium flex for versatility. I had my doubts that the quick lace system would hold up over the long run, but here I am several years down the road and the system is as quick and secure as ever. And now Burton has gone ahead and made them even better with a couple of versions to fit your riding style, gel foot beds among other improvements. Highly recommended! *The photo shows a close-up of the Quick lace system with the little teeth that hold the tension. Pull up to engage and forward to disengage.
Awesome Boots - Burton RULER
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are great boots! Feel is very stiff and secure. Ankle locks into these boots when you step into them, and the inside liner also tightens around the feet and ankles/leg. then the outside also tightens. All quick pull tightening system makes it very easy to get exactly the right feel on these boots. I really like them, bc after your strapped in you feel very much connected to your board. 9/10 for these things. If they were BOA they would be 10/10.
Comfortable and warm
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got these for my brother because his feet were always cold, and uncomfortable. He really likes these boots, and he doesn't get cold anymore. He says they are very supportive, and his feet don't hurt after all day on the mountain.
Great boots. Super light and warm with the perfect amount of flex for shredding the park or hiking the backcountry. Two thumbs up!!
I have burton ruler boots currently that I purchased in high school (~07). Can I expect these boots to fit the same?
