Best snowboard boot I've owned yet. Did order 1/2 size larger and it worked great. Feet stayed warm and I open and close the slopes every day I'm there. Fit perfectly with no real break-in period right out of the box. Can't wait to get back in them next season.

Love these boots! first ordered my regular size but they fit to tight and ended up getting a half size larger. After riding a day in them I was in love, my feet felt good even after on the first run. Great support and amazing impact resistance to, spun front 5 off a 40 footer straight to the knuckle on my heels and was able to just get up and ride away like it never happened. WORTH THE MONEY!

Love the easy tightening system and the overall fit of the boot, I had to go a half size bigger than my regular size shoe, even though other burton boots I have had fit true to size. Really reaponsize and not nearly as stiff as I expected, which is great cause I like to go through the terrain park.

I can't believe some people say they have to size down in this boot. I have had many Burton boots over the years and always ran an 11 even with inserts and had a little room left over in the toe box which I like. My toes were a little crammed to the top with these. Its like their size down 1 size technology actually sized down the inside too. I don't know, I hate how everybody's 11 is different and if the one company you go with changes the size, that sucks, maybe its just this boot? I don't know. I love the boot, Burton usually makes really comfy boots, the Imperial is really comfy, probably not as stiff as stated (7/10) but thats ok with me, I don't want to move up to the Ion which is really stiff. I am returning these to size up to 11.5 which should be perfect.
