The NEW Ritual blends pro-level performance with the latest in warmth and comfort for a fully-charged boot that’s ready to rip.
Playful yet powerful, these kicks are the softest option in Burton’s high-end lineup, letting you go from park to peak with unmatched style. Speed Zone™ lacing makes entry, exit, and customizing the fit a breeze, while new “sleeping bag” science reflects body heat back to your feet for added warmth when your body needs it. The ultra-light and low-profile outsole enhances board feel and control with cushioning you can count on when faced with landings that are less than perfect.

Speed Zone™ Lacing System
Lightning fast lacing control. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds, and because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response—with less effort.
Flex / Response
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.
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 Soft 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.

Women's-Specific True Fit™ Design
Enjoy a more harmonious connection with Burton’s True Fit™ women’s boards, boots, and bindings. True Fit means that every element of every piece of your setup—from boot liners to lace guides, baseplate to strap designs, board shapes to flex profiles—has been designed and engineered for the way women ride. Because when it fits right, it rides better.
Superior cushioning, improved board feel, and consistent support in a 20% lighter weight construction. Made entirely of an exclusive cushioning compound specially formulated to withstand repeated impacts and freezing temps for long lasting shock absorption.
EST® Optimized Outsole
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.
The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for unstoppable impact protection.
NEW Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil
This new low-profile and lightweight underfoot technology reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions. Exclusive to the Felix and NEW Ritual.
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.

Plush Cuff 1.0
The Plush Cuff 1.0 hugs your calf like no other thanks to a combination of medial and lateral neoprene stretch zones and a super soft fur lining. Featured on the Felix, Ritual, Memento, Emerald, Bootique, and Sapphire™.
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.
