Anything but archaic.
On the bleeding edge of shred tech, the Burton Men's Almighty Snowboard Boot elevates your riding experience with Ultraweave shell construction. This tech-savvy weave creates a supportive exoskeleton that's both rugged and water-resistant, withstanding the rigors of serious riders without breaking down prematurely or fraying halfway through the season. The Almighty's flex is a touch stiffer than medium, delivering an ideal blend of response and mobility for riders who rip everything on the mountain with a freestyle focus.
Another innovation for this season, the Almighty packs the new Life liner that's shared with the legendary Ion Boot. This liner emphasizes lightweight construction and plush support when you're perfecting tricks in the park and riding alpine terrain with a skate-like style. DryRide Heat Cycle fibers retain precious warmth on those sub-zero sessions. For lasting freshness, the liner's Aegis antimicrobial prevents funky odors after a long day of riding.
Flat landings suck. So does riding over bumpy snow after melt-freeze cycles in springtime. Realizing this, Burton placed ReBounce cushioning into the boot for superb shock absorption when you're sending everything in sight and charging across crappy snow conditions. Adding plenty of traction for hiking the park after lift close, the DynoBite EST-optimized sole sports a serrated pattern for improved bite on slick surfaces.

- Q & A
A softer Ion with articulated ankle
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Decent pair of burton boots ... comfy and all that. But got soft quicker than expected. As well, if you're the kind of person who finds themselves cranking down on the speed lace system, then the articulated ankle slightly gets in the way.
It's a fun boot to ride in. Good on hikes as well. If you like a softer-to-medium boot, then get it. If you're replacing Ions that blew out too early (these should last longer than 60 days) and can only get the Almighty because Burton didn't make enough size 9.5 this season, consider something else -- you'll be slightly let down.
I love the green color.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
These are by far the most comfortable snowboard boots I've ever put on my feet! I ended up returning them because I want something a bit stiffer but if you're looking for ultimate comfort in a freestyle boot... look no further.
