The Burton Tourist Boot is very similar to a traditional soft boot, also offers a back welt for semi-automatic crampons, and from the outside dimension it is the smallest split-boot on the market. Outsole is made by Vibram and provides perfect grip in snow-rich terrain. Overall, the tourist boot is rather soft, but still offers better lateral support for direct force transfer during ascents than a conventional soft boot. With a negative angle of approximately 5° the shape of the Tourist Boot supports longer strides during the way up. If you have larger feet and like softer split-boots you should give this one a try.
