B$Z: Burton Snowboards and Red Wing Heritage Launch the Rover Limited Snowboard Boot

Burton Snowboards and Red Wing Heritage Launch the Rover Limited Snowboard Boot

Burton Snowboards and Red Wing Heritage have teamed up this winter to create the Rover Limited snowboard boot, now available in Burton Flagship stores and select local snowboard dealers around the globe.  

The Rover Limited snowboard boot combines Red Wing’s traditional style and durability with Burton’s expertise in performance and comfort, and is the first collaboration between the two brands.  Inspired by Red Wing’s incredibly popular and traditional sport boot, the 877, the Rover Limited features Red Wing’s signature full grain leather and traditional yellow lacing.  The boot’s premium package also includes strategic support and cushioning, and snow-proof gussets for hiking (or shoveling out the truck).    

Burton’s own team rider, Jeremy Jones had a hand in the collaboration as he has always been a fan of Red Wing’s classic style. “I am very stoked to see this boot come to life,” stated Jeremy. “I look forward to shredding in them all season long.”  

The Rover Limited boot is available now for a suggested retail price of $349.95 at Burton Flagship stores and select retailers.
