Snowboarding companies come and go but like any long-time rider knows Burton has been around for the long haul. The company began in 1977 and since then they have compiled all those years of experience, research, and results into a startling array of time-tested products. Simply put, they know what they’re doing when it comes to snow.
The Ambush Snowboard Boots fit right into the Burton equation with expert craftsmanship, a deceptively simple design, the highest-quality materials, and tons of new technology. All of this adds up to create a boot that is at the top of its class.
Patrolling the boot wall at your local shop, the Ambush Boots really do pop out and visually ambush you. They are sleek, sexy, and simple with smooth contours all around. So far, they come in only two colorways, a black/lime and a gray/blue, and both of them look very good.
Looks aside, pulling the Ambush Boots on for a fitting in the shop (or before your first ride up the lift) is easy. They feature Burton’s well-known Speed Zone Lacing System (with all new Winder Handles) that make lacing-up (if you can call it that) a snap. Plus, they’re extra durable to the point of being indestructible and should last the whole life of the boot.
Comfort is obviously one of the most important aspects of any snowboarding boot and the Ambush Boots come through here as well. In addition to their Total Comfort Construction, the boots come equipped with DynoLite Outsole (with B3 Gel) and heat moldable, Imprint 3 Liner with Rad Pad that kick the comfort up a notch. They’re super soft on the inside but tough enough to leave your feet feeling fresh after even the hardest day of riding.
The Burton Ambush Snowboarding Boots are a great pair of snowboarding boots for just about anyone. They work well for any rider from the beginner to the expert, especially if you don’t want to break the bank on a single purchase. They look good, fit comfortably, last for a long time, and will threaten to kick your snowboarding skills up another notch. You can feel confident that the Burton Ambush boots will do their chosen job time and time again.
