The Burton Memento is new, pretty soft and has a lot of focus on looking like a lodge boot. This boot is very soft and for those that buy a jacket every year but have the same board for 6. Ok just kidding…..I think. It’s got a very old school super soft feel when riding and it’s clear you don’t buy this boot because of it’s performance but instead buy it for it’s looks. For most of us here the Mint would be a better choice because you are paying a lot more for extra steeeeeeze.
