Shine on.

Destined to shine in the terrain park and beyond, the Burton Women's Limelight Snowboard Boot delivers freestyle-focused performance that also gets down on groomers, side hits, and tight tree runs found on the rest of the mountain.

The Limelight uses SpeedZone lacing in the upper and lower zones for independent tightening, which allows you to dial-in a precise fit for any riding scenario. Landing smack-dab in the middle of Burton's responsiveness rating, the Limelight is suited for freestyle and all-terrain riding, while its Medium-Flex PowerUp Tongue adds responsiveness for rallying in and out of turns.

Inside the Limelight, you'll find a heat-moldable Imprint 2 Liner that's insulated with 3M Thinsulate for toasty comfort on some of winter's coldest days. Then, the boot retains even more heat with its Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil that's located beneath the footbed, acting like an emergency blanket to keep your feet warm during the coldest of shred sessions. Rounding the Limelight out, a low-profile DynoGrip sole that's cushioned with B3 gel helps absorb harsh impacts from overshooting jumps or particularly flat landings.

heat mold for sure

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

After trying on about a thousand snowboard boots in various ski shops, I found these were the ones I could secure without any heel lift. The speed zone lacing is awesome, and allowed me to get the custom fit I needed, better than any single boa or traditional lacing boot I tried. Backcountry had these cheaper than any local spot, so I ordered the 6.5 (I wear a 7.5 to 8 size shoe, for reference). My first day out on the mountain in these, my toes and forefoot kept going numb, no matter how I laced them. Took them to the pro shop and had them heat molded, and dude also trimmed the liner on the edges to make room for my wider-than-average feet. After those adjustments, and switching to a slightly thinner pair of socks, I was able to ride in relative comfort for the rest of the day. I'm happy with my purchase, and would only wish that Burton would make women's boot better suited for wider feet!

I am curious as to why you ordered a 6.5? I usually wear a 7.5 to 8 also and have found that buying an 8 in snowboard boot is terrible because of the heel lift. I did get a 7 at a close out sale since it did feel like it fit but haven't used them yet aside from walking around the house. I worry that the 7 will end up being too small in the end but appreciate your notes about the custom fitting. I don't necessarily have wide feet but I've spend a good majority of my life wearing men's (boys) skateboard shoes. They didn't used to make them for girls - not when I was skating anyway. :) I guess I am just wondering because I wonder if we are trying to solve the same problem of heel lift.
