couldn't resist, and the coffee hasn't kicked in yet....

ViciousVend3tta I would understand if he was comparing his 08 Hail to 13 Hail, but he's not even comparing same models. I'm pretty sure same size ION, Hail, Moto probably don't share same footprint.

No, he's comparing Burton boots to Burton boots - a direct comparison of the footprint over several years.
If they are indeed the same size and have the same footprint then the claim of shrinkage is erroneous.

Since none of us seem to know, I recommend contacting Burton directly.

trapper OP bought new boots claiming shrinkage tech and didn't seem to get what he paid for. I think it's a legitimate complaint.

The 2008 boot before shrinkage tech has the exact same footprint as the 2014 with shrinkage tech.
