IN 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter founded Burton out of his Vermont barn. Since then, Burton has fueled the growth of snowboarding worldwide through its groundbreaking product lines, its team of top snowboarders and its grassroots efforts to get the sport accepted at resorts. In 1996, Burton began growing its family of brands to include boardsports and apparel brands. Privately held and owned by Jake, Burton’s headquarters are in Burlington, Vermont with offices in California, Austria, Japan and Australia.
Below are Snowboarder’s suggestions for Burton Snowboard Boots. At the top end of Burton’s collection of snowboard boots for 2011 is their Ion boot. It has the most features and biggest price tag, as you work your way down the page the price decreases as do the built in features of each boot. With a price tag of $169.95 the Burton Awol boot has great features and a price tag that will leave room for a new beanie and gloves. Enjoy.
