2013 Burton Vibram Ecostep

Vibram® is the world leader in high performance rubber soles targeted to the outdoor, recreation, work, repair and orthopedic markets. Vibram® created the first rubber outsole for mountaineering in the 1930′s. Footwear has not been the same since. Their iconic yellow diamond logo is a seal of quality, performance, safety, innovation and design. Vibram’s® new soles are always produced with three things in mind - to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort and quality over time. It’s a no wonder Burton teamed up with Vibram® over a decade ago to produce the best snowboard soles in the market. Burton is legend when it comes to snowboarding and Vibram® is legend when it comes to outdoor footwear. It’s a perfect match.

The latest project, Vibram® Ecostep Outsole Technology resulted in lighter weight and 50% recycled construction. It includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe for added comfort. From fist to last chair, the Vibram® Ecostep will cushion your entire body while the recycled component will remind you that every little bit counts… This season, dive into the SLX for the best of both worlds.

With nearly 70 years of mountaineering knowledge, it’s no wonder Vibram cares about the environment. Using recycled rubber, the Vibram Ecostep Outsole lets you leave less of a footprint on Mother Earth while still committing to superior traction, feel and lightweight.
