Step-in boots with STRAP Bindings ???

Hello,

I bought a pair of Step In Burton Ruler boots on eBay but the seller did not mention that it's a step-in boots.
The shoes fit on my size, are a little heavy (2 kg per boot) and a little rigid.

i need to know if it is possible to use them on strap binding?

Thanks in advance you for your answers!

As long as they don't have the internal highback you should be ok. I believe that the Burton SI boots were just regular boots with the connection mode on the side of the soles. So you should be ok.

I agree that you can certainly use those but will also say I am hugely against buying used boots. They have already packed out and molded to the previous owners feet. Plus the fact those were step in are not ideal. also those must be old as hell because I cannot remember the last time Burton did step ins.

I would make the seller take them back. Sounds like you got screwed.

If you are on a tight budget keep them. They will work but once you get the money go out and get yourself a good pair of boots. Boots are the most important piece of equipment.
