I'm planning on getting a new pair of boots this season and I'm looking at either the burton Ions or imperial boots. Are the Ions really worth $130.00 more? I guess you usually get what you pay for right? thanks!:thumbsup:

I've always worn ions, so can't say about imperials.

Ions are supposed to be a little stiffer so if you want stiffness you get a little more. The other features are similarly incremental.

Worth it is a personal question. If the price difference means 2 less lift tickets or your kid misses out on lunch at school for two weeks then go with imperials. If you have $130 lost in various coat pockets and you don't care then dig it up and go for it.
