Burton Sterling 2013 - 2012 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Sterling is a boot for riders who want to be different or remember the past but still want a decent bit of tech put in it as well.  There are an articulating cuff and lacing system similar to the Burton Axel.   You could buy other Burton boots that have the same tech but you are buying the Sterling for its looks.  You can’t say this is a gimmick because Burton just makes good boots and this has a lot of the same tech as other boots like the articulating cuff and Gel inserts in the sole.   We’d like to see a better lacing system that locks the laces better in place but this is old shool. So if you are reminiscent of the old days and want a little reminder then the Sterling is the best out of the box designed boot made for serious riding you can buy.
