The 2021 Burton Driver X Boot is one of the best boots on the market for riders who demand way too much from their boots. Built to be one of the most responsive and durable boot on the market, the Driver X boasts one of the stiffest flex ratings on the market while still giving increased response and support and a super comfy broken-in right out of the box feeling. Capable of being a boot that is ready for hiking, sledding, park laps or big-mountain riding it really makes sense why it is the boot of choice for riders like Terje Haakonsen for his every day boot.

The Imprint 3x Liner is the top tier liner from Burton, with the most comfortable, warmest, and most performance-driven fit right out of the box.

DryRide Heat Cycle Lining
This breathable inner-lining technology utilises interwoven thermally activated carbon thread to capture, radiate, and reflect body heat inward to keep feet warmer while also wicking heat-robbing moisture outward.
Cushioning / Outsole: Vibram EcoStep Rubber Outsole
The Driver X features a 30% recycled Vibram EcoStep rubber outsole for the legendary grip that Vibram is known for, with a more lightweight, eco-friendly construction. This works in conjunction with dual zone EVA and B3 gel in the toe and heel, giving you luxurious comfort and shock absorption along with dependable traction. A low profile, lightweight layer of Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil underfoot reflects heat from your foot back into the boot, keeping the heat in and the cold out.
Shrinkage Footprint Reduction
This boot features Burtons exclusive Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology, which reduces the footprint of your boot closer to a size below while still fitting like your correct size, helping to eliminate toe and heel drag without sacrificing comfort.
