These boots are pricey but you defiantly get what you pay for. I have either ridden or tried on all of the K2 T1 boots with the Boa liner, and these are the best so far. The liners remained the same as the previous 2 seasons, but the insole/footbed has been upgraded for more arch support and a comfy fit. The biggest improvement would be the new Vibram sole, they stick to everything! Last year's Vibram was good, but this year it's on a different level altogether. This is an easy boot to ride with. The only complaint I had was with the toe box. Personally I think it's a little too small, but you might like a snug fit.
