Why We Chose The Burton Ruler: A bona fide modern classic, with a long history of helping riders level up.
In these turbulent times, no-one would blame you for being nostalgic about the late ‘90s – a time of sheep-cloning, space-station-launching, OK Computer-releasing progress. It’s also when the Burton Ruler first appeared – and while this comparison may be ever-so-slightly overselling the B’s contribution to the collective human endeavour, it’s still a great boot that has definitely stood the test of time.
“For many riders over the years – myself included – the Burton Ruler was their first ‘serious’ boot”
Even as it has taken on upgrades and design tweaks, the fundamentals have been largely unchanged for some time now. That makes the Burton Ruler a safe pair of hands for your, erm, pair of feet.
Who Are The Burton Ruler For?
For many riders over the years – myself included – the Burton Ruler was their first ‘serious’ boot. Not crazy stiff and unforgiving, but definitely able to handle the transition from progressing to proficient. While it’s pitched as a ‘does-anything’ model (and certainly does qualify), it leans towards the freestyle category.
