A Classic Perfected

If the entire mountain is your domain, the Empire awaits you. Loved and revered for its asymmetrical flex construction, this all mountain 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 in Japan, the Empire excels at making turns that are as quick as they are smooth. This season, we’ve infused the boot with our all-new Freeride Tongue, which enhances durability and enables riders to further customize the boot’s flex. And for a tailored fit that delivers maximum comfort, the Empire showcases our all-new Stage 4 liner. Perfect for pushing progression, this legendary boot is Tadashi Fuse’s daily driver. Rule everything with the Empire.

Features

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.

Powerstrap

This strap provides extra support for your shin to enhance response.

L2

The L2 lacing system not only provides a quick and easy way to secure your boots, it also helps you precisely adjust two separate lacing zones—the foot and the calf. One handle and clasp close the upper part of the boot while another handle and clasp close the lower part. A pull on each handle secures your foot, allowing you to powerfully and precisely transfer energy to your board.

Backbone

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

Sidekick

You don’t need to fight crime to appreciate DEELUXE’s Sidekick. The Sidekick uses two reinforc- ing 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.

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.

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.

D-Tex

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

Remedy

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.
