Hard to say what goes through the mind of Jeremy Jones when he’s riding, but it sure ain’t his Hails.
Now more supportive at his request, this tried-and-true stomper translates the feel of a skate shoe to snow with added performance that rises to any challenge. A step above its stock counterpart, this Restricted edition features Total Comfort from day one, plus the added fit control of Upper Decker Lacing and a lower lace cover that harkens back to 80s skate style.

No fancy wires, reels, or handles, just a couple of laces for that tried and true feel and customized fit.
Upper Decker Lacing
Flex / Response
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology
Reduces the boot’s overall footprint one full size, meaning a men’s size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker—never suffer from toe drag again.
Allowing the upper and lower zones of the boot to flex independently creates fluid forward motion, minimizes shell distortion, and maximizes heel hold and response.
These strategically placed flex notches allow for smoother, more fluid lateral and medial flex, perfect for pressing and tweaking.
Flex Spine Backstay
Get effortless medial and lateral mobility with ample edge-to-edge support for when it’s time to throw down the landing gear.
NEW Power Up Medium Flex Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongue
For greater rebound and durability, we have upgraded the majority of our 2014 boots to this new dual density tongue construction. Like all our Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongues, it’s available in one of three flex options based on the boot. For even greater response, check the thermoplastic-reinforced Power Up Plus Tongue on the Driver X.
Cushioning / Traction
Low-Profile EST® Optimized Midsole
EST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST lowers your center of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts.
Dual-density EVA allows your foot to settle into a more natural and relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control.
NEW ReBounce Cushioning
More comfort and more warmth is the Burton-exclusive upgrade of NEW Rebounce Cushioning. The extra hops are accomplished by surrounding the foot with a two-layer 3D laminate of cushy PU plus reflective material, which not only reduces impact and absorbs chatter but also turns heat inward. Featured on the SLX, Ion, NEW Ion Leather, Hail Restricted, and Supreme.
Total Comfort Construction
Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort’s industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset
All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed
Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption.
ESS Support Shank
The added support reduces fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.
Imprint™ 3 Liner
1. Focus Cuff Heel Hold System with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace Lock 2. Tuff Cuff with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace Lock [Driver X and Felix Only] 3.

Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response.
Located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure, these pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating
Inhibits foul odors. Your feet [and your friends] will thank us. Look for Aegis™ on select liners and footbeds.
