One boot to rule all.

The Burton Men's Ruler Snowboard Boot satisfies your insatiable desire for riding everything in your path with iconic versatility that's equally confident dropping into waist-deep powder at the summit and sending thirty-foot kickers in the park. The Ruler's happy-medium flex is neither overly aggressive nor noodly soft, striking the sweet spot for all-terrain domination when you're only rocking one boot throughout the entire season. Burton outfitted the Ruler with Speed Zone lacing for a fine-tuned fit over the upper and lower zones with the simple pull of a lacing handle. This allows you to dial in the exact fit and feel for the terrain at hand, regardless if you like your boots tight and slop-free for charging or a bit softer for park laps.

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, ensuring every ride is free of painful pressure points. The Man Fur lining ensures fuzzy comfort, and the Lock-Up cuff provides greater response by eliminating dreaded heel lift.

The Ruler comes 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 Brick 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 White/Black 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, choppy snow.

Great Boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A unique lacing system that allows you to pull it tight in various places quickly and easily.

I ordered a size 12 because that’s what I wear in shoes but I should have ordered a half size bigger. They work great, just a little snug with thick socks.


    Stylin and quality craftsmanship. Got these for my best friend in the whole wide world. Josh, if you see this I ate your oreos in college.

    Burton Ruler _ Great Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have had these boots for 3 years and I am very satisfied. When I looked for boots, I wanted something on the stiffer side, so I would have more support, and a more controlled feel when riding. After shopping around I bought these. To start my feet have not been freezing ever when wearing these. There is a inner liner that has a locking heel support, and this also tightens first with velcro, then laces up on its own inside the boot itself... a very tight start. Then the boot itself tightens with the quick pull laces, with two diff ropes. One for bottom half one for top half. Works well and if standing you can pull very tight. Easy to adjust, warm, and sturdy. I may buy a new pair when Im ready for more.
