Burton Snowboard Boots – Moto Boots Reviewed
Burton Moto Freestyle Boots Review
The Burton Moto has been around from what feels like the dawn of man. It’s a fairly cheap boot compared to Burton’s extensive top of the line snowboard boots. The Moto still provides some of the fancy tech that even the heavy hitters caries, which makes it a great boot for someone starting out, and wanting to start on the right foot.
With the recent addition of the quick lace (Speed Lace™) system to the Moto, it is a sure choice for anyone getting into the sport as a great starter snowboard boot. The boots feel a bit more bulky that some of the higher end Burton boots. Burton Snowboards claims that this is their number uno most popular snowboard boot. It’s our guess that the low cost, and high quality is the reason for this. The Moto’s also offer heat-moldable imprint liners, and a nice soft cushy EVA sole. The tongue itself also has some moldable properties, that can help dial in the perfect boot flex.
The liners of the Burton Moto Boots are pretty basic, but offer enough cushion and support to keep most people happy. This year the Moto get’s the New “Shrinkage” footprint technology. This is defiantly helpful as the previous Moto’s were consuming their own zip code. The claim is that a size 10 Burton boot has the footprint of a size 9! Bold claim, but accurate.
We would recommend these boots for anyone on a budget, or maybe only gets a few days on the mountain a year. They seem to hold their flex well, and provide plenty of life in a sturdy boot.
There are a lot of websites with the Burton Moto on Sale for close to a hundred bucks.
