Burton Day Spa 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton Day Spa is a good entry level plus boot that is good for those that like a forgiving ride and also ride with easier turning boards.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
Flex: Very middle ground flex that has a lot of freedom.
Comfort: Burton makes very comfortable boots and although this isn’t their high-end model it’s got a lot of comfort for this price range. It should be pretty good for most people and not cause pressure points.
Heel Hold: Pretty good heel hold but it’s not going to compete with some double BOA or BOA boots. From what we have seen with most boots is it’s a battle between adjustability and heel hold in terms of design.
Adjustability: Exceptional adjustability. The top and bottom are completely separate and the lacing is easy and quick.
Flex Retention: Burton has pretty good flex retention even in the low to mid-range models.
Response: Pretty mid-level response that should work with moderate to easy flexing boards. It’s responsive enough to help you get a board well from edge to edge but it’s also forgiving enough to help prevent you from catching an edge.
Traction: Burton makes boots with rubber on the bottom over the EVA where some don’t do that. This makes for a good bit of traction and most Burton boots can do pretty well in an icy parking lot. This will do fine too.
Shock Absorption: Lots of EVA foam throughout the boot so it will absorb a good bit of shock.
