Boardworks Breakdown: 

The Deeluxe Empire is a top-tier performance snowboard boot for advanced snowboarders with a narrow foot and heel profile. This boot is MEGA STIFF, making it a supportive boot to ride challenging terrain in an aggressive manner. This boot features Deeluxe's L3 speed lacing system.

This boot is also UNISEX. So for those female riders who have been looking for a narrow fit, narrow heel option that is STIFF AS YOU CAN GET: this is the boot

Nate has messed up feet and is our in-house boot nerd. He rode the BOA version of these boots all last season and was WAY stoked on them. Nate sucks, but he knows boots. 

With all boots, we recommend getting a proper in-store boot fit and considering an aftermarket insole so the boot best matches the arch of your foot. 

Manufacturer Description: 

 If the entire mountain is your domain, the Empire awaits you. Loved and revered for its asymmetrical flex construction, this all terrain boot provides a truly unique riding experience. Whether you’re dropping into a banked slalom, dodging rocks in a chute, or ripping through the trees on a pow day, the Empire excels at making turns that are as quick as they are smooth. And thanks to this exceptional performance, the Empire is also the boot of choice for Japanese pipe prodigy Yuto Totsuka, who has landed atop the podium at the X-Games, World Championships, and many other contests across the globe. For a truly custom fit that delivers maximum comfort, the Empire showcases DEELUXE’s Stage 4 liner. A Freeride Tongue enhances durability and enables riders to further customize the boot’s flex. It also features the L3 lacing system for an even greater fit and enhanced response. And as a testament to the boot’s legendary performance, Japan’s Freerun magazine recently honored the Empire with a Best Gear Award, naming it the top freeride boot. Rule everything with the Empire.

This boot has been optimized for versatility, from parks and powder to urban environments, and everything in between.

Flex Booster

Available as an accessory, the Flex Booster strengthens a boot’s tongue, creating a stiffer flex while offering additional support. It can also prolong the life of a boot by restoring or enhancing its flex. Thanks to a progressive design, it provides greater resistance as it bends, optimizing support and protection—especially from harsh landings. As icing on the cake, the Flex Booster enables you to modify a boot’s flex for specific adventures—be that reinforcing the flex of a jib boot to slay kickers or transforming a freestyle boot into a banked slalom hero. You don’t need gym shorts to appreciate this flex.

L3 Lacing System 

Our most advanced and versatile speed lacing system provides three different lacing zones using two clasps and two handles. One handle allows the boot to cradle your foot and calf while the other handle secures the ankle and heel. Thanks to these separate zones, the boot anchors your heel for a refined fit that enhances energy transmission.


Stage 4 Liner 

Hold nothing back with DEELUXE’s Stage 4 liner. Featured in some of the finest boots in our collection, this premium liner delivers an unprecedented out-of-the-box fit. With a precisely tailored anatomical design and a refined heel pocket, the liner hugs the contours of your foot while maximizing performance. An external heel harness further cradles your foot while providing exceptional heel hold, as well as quick and secure lacing. For additional comfort, the Stage 4 liner sports a roomier toebox with a four-way stretch material. The freshly-designed back panel further enhances the liner’s fit while optimizing support. And for an unsurpassed custom fit, the liner can be thermofitted—with or without toe caps. Unleash your potential with DEELUXE’s Stage 4 liner.

D-Tex

Waterproof and breathable, this membrane ensures feet stay warm and dry.


Remedy Sole 

You don’t need a prescription for DEELUXE’s Remedy. Especially versatile, the Remedy sole provides the perfect blend of traction and cushioning. It offers exceptional grip while hiking and when it’s time to send it, the sole’s free-floating heel cushion ensures smooth landings. And thanks to a reduced footprint, it minimizes toe and heel drag. Give your feet the treatment they deserve with DEELUXE’s Remedy sole.


Asym-Flex

This design pairs a stiffer flex on the outside of the boot with a softer flex on its inside for the perfect blend of power and comfort. It also improves edge-to-edge transitions and control while reducing strain on the knees. The Asym Flex provides a truly unique riding experience.

Freeride Tongue 

DEELUXE’s Freeride Tongue is a smooth operator. Especially plush, it maximizes comfort and cushioning while also enhancing durability. At home exploring the entire mountain, it loves to lay down turns that are especially smooth. And for a truly custom ride, the Freeride Tongue sports a three-position pocket that can accommodate an optional Flex Booster. This enables you to personalize the flex of your boot and tailor it to be either symmetrical or asymmetrical. Make your mark all over the mountain with DEELUXE’s Freeride Tongue.

Side Kick

You don’t need to fight crime to appreciate DEELUXE’s Sidekick. The Sidekick uses two reinforcing elements—one lateral and one medial—to maximize the transmission of power. This allows you to transition from edge to edge faster and provides a snappier ride, giving you better pop when ollieing. And by offering additional security, it reduces the likelihood of rolling your ankle.


Custom Thermo Fit Liners

To lead, one must innovate—and DEELUXE’s Custom Thermo Fit liner charges into the future. With fresh technology and a sophisticated design, it makes its debut as the best custom fit liner in the game. With a precisely tailored anatomical design and an advanced perforated foam, it cradles the contours of your foot while maximizing performance. For the perfect blend of warmth and breathability, the perforated foam also aids in regulating temperature. The Heel Harness Pro with its exoskeleton deliver an unrivaled fit at the ankle and exceptional support. And thanks to a deep heel pocket and an ankle zone with mesh that’s especially grippy, the Custom Thermo Fit liner provides unsurpassed heelhold. To customize the liner’s fit even further, it can be thermomolded with DEELUXE’s Liner Precision Fit Pads. No wonder the Custom Thermo Fit Liner stands to be a favorite among riders and bootfitters alike. Reimagine what’s possible with DEELUXE’s Custom Thermo Fit liner.


Back Bone 

This reinforced panel cradles the back of the boot to maximize durability and enhance response.





Size Chart 

Unfortunately, many riders choose boots in the wrong size. They often do this by simply defaulting to their shoe size when selecting boots. Yet the fit and size of boots vary tremendously across brands. Your local snowboard shop will be able to pair you with your correct DEELUXE boot size in seconds with the help of our DEELUXE FOOT MEASUREMENT tool. Additionally, there is also a quick and easy way to find out your correct DEELUXE boot size at home. All you need for it is a ruler or a measuring tape and then follow these steps: Take off your shoes, stand, and place your feet on the ruler/measuring tape. Be sure that your heels are exactly located where the scale unit of the ruler/measuring tape starts. Now use the location of your toes on the ruler to determine your proper Mondo size. The Mondo size exactly matches the total length of your feet in cm. Use the size chart that is depicted below to convert your mondo size into country-specific shoe sizes if needed. Please note that the volume and length of your feet increases throughout the day. Consequently, if you’re measuring your feet in the morning, we recommend selecting a boot that’s a half-size larger.
