Disney x Burton “Tron” Snowboard Boots

By - June 24th, 2010

Disney x Burton Tron Snowboard Boots 28 years later, 1982 science fiction hit film, Tron, is finally coming back with sequel, Tron: Legacy, officially making the series one with the longest gap between the first live-action movie and its sequel in Hollywood history. In the upcoming Disney hit film, Tron: Legacy picks up years after where the film left off, as Kevin Flynn’s now adult son, Sam Flynn looks into his father’s disappearance into a world of fearsome programs and gladiatorial games, which his father has been residing in for the past 25 years. To celebrate the film’s high anticipated release, Disney has announced a collaboration with snowboarding goods maker, Burton, to create a pair of “Tron” Snowboard Boots.

The “Tron” Snowboard boots are inspired by the film’s retro futuristic look and feel, compete with a printed patent leather upper featuring streaks of cool turquoise mimicking the world of programs. Orange accents give the boots its extra pop and the lining and stitching are rendered in a matching light blue. Meant to look like “something out of the future” but seen through the eyes of a “snowboarder in 1982”, these are a great addition for snowboarders with a slight geeky kid living inside them still. Set to drop at select Burton retailers this winter, do keep an eye out for them as well as the film set to drop on December 17.

Disney x Burton Tron Snowboard Boots


These are AWFUL, poorly thought out, blatantly off brand, First off, i am a FULL ON dorky kid living in a designer. SO lets go through it in bullet points to retain your attention spans: 1. The only thing retro about Tron Legacy is the title. END OF STORY 2. The only thing retro about these boots is that they are pretty much the Burton Q snowboard boots from 2008 3. The color scheme is that of the original movie, and completely ignores most of the visual aspects of the new movie. Looks like the person "sprucing up" these researched only the first flick, and ignored any of the leaks that have been coming out for 2 years now 4. The hologram grid vinyl is doodoo 5. Above all else this shape is WAAAAAAACK. You can make a completely functional boot, that will work well on a snowboard that doesn't look like a polar bear took a dump on your leg and you strapped it on with velcro. Disney, I know you are all about merchandising, but the ENTIRE line of Tron related apparel and accessories have been a total FAIL. Freshnessmag I certainly hope Disney paid you not to slam these PS if Disney wants to make a pair of SICK Tron inspired snow boots, tell them to give me a shout.
