Burton Driver X
As far as grip and rich lines are concerned, the most reactive and non-slip snowboard boot cannot be replaced by any other.
Difficult ascents and descents are the specialty of Burton Driver X™ Boots. It is known as the most popular snowboard boot and its powerful appearance is balanced by practical upgrades in terms of warmth and comfort. A combination of DRYRIDE Heat Cycle™ and reflective sleeping bag film keeps and distributes body heat while dissipating heat-taking sweat. Its strength is complemented by the registered all-round comfort that you feel the first time you wear it. Vibram® EcoStep™ outsole adheres securely to the mountain. Add it all up and you get the perfect choice for riders who hike, toboggan, lead or patrol. Also perfect for freestyle experts like Terje Haakonsen.

If you are looking for a hard softboot, you will find it in the DRIVER X.
If you start with splitboarding, you are just about to make a big purchase. Therefore and because of the usually good fit, the existing soft boots should simply be taken further. The purchase of new soft boots will come automatically in the near future. I have been following the soft-boots sector for many years now and talk to many participants every season - it is simply very complex and has already created many unnecessary products.
That's why we haven't had any soft boots in our program for the last 2 years, because there simply wasn't one we really liked. Especially the "special" Splitboards Boots, crampon proof - did not appeal to us personally. In general I have the feeling that some splitboarder / snowboarder is looking for a softboot stiffness that only exists in hardboots - why then ride softboots? The eternal discussion about soft or hard boots is also more philosophical than alpinistic. There is currently even a splitboard softboot, which is so hard that you can't reasonably ascend with it. Already after 15 minutes the shins hurt, I go there with my ski touring boat more comfortably.
I personally have gone the last years with the Driver-X and really high alpines with my ski touring hardboot and a hardboot binding on my split. So if you don't make a 4,000er every weekend, but 1-2 per season, you can reach all the peaks you want with a good soft boat, vibram sole and Grivel crampons. Above all, he has a soft boot with a soft boot riding behavior in the downhill.
If you don't want that, take the hard boot.
