For riders with wider dogs, wearing regular snowboard boots leads to cramped feet, making every turn a painful ordeal. Burton created a solution to this long standing problem with the Burton Men's Ruler Wide Snowboard Boot. As one of the only wide boots on the market, this boot has widened mid and forefoot zones, allowing you to ride comfortably without having to sacrifice fit and performance by sizing up. Falling somewhere just north of Burton's medium flex rating, the Ruler Wide is great for ripping the entire mountain, no matter if you're slashing pow or sending jumps. This responsive boot provides great edge control for freeriding, thanks to its Medium Flex PowerUp Tongue and Power Spine Backstay, yet it isn't insanely stiff like Burton's Driver X or Imperial, allowing you enough flex to butter and jib when you're riding park or mellower terrain. Speed Zone Lacing gives you the freedom to independently tighten the upper and lower regions for a dialed in fit. Simply pull each handle to your ideal tightness and you're ready to ride in mere seconds.

This liner has Man Fur for added comfort at the opening, where your calf rubs against the boot liner. Additionally, the liner wraps tightly around your leg with a simple hook and loop closure, giving you stay put support. There's also Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil below the Level 1 Molded EVA footbed for added heat retention during those sub zero shred sessions. Gripping over the iciest runs and sketchiest boot packs, the Ruler Wide's DynoGRIP sole has multiple traction patterns on the toe, heel, and mid foot zones. Rubber heel and toe reinforcements stand up to heavy use and abuse all season long, and B3 Gel cushioning in the heel soaks up nasty landings from jumps and chatter from hi...
