My info: 6'4", 200 lbs. 10 years riding.
Got in an 11.5 this year. Tight at first, but these babies pack out a bit!
When I checked these out I was stoked on the inner BOA system that locks your heel down - it's as awesome as previous reviewers make it sound! Add that to the fact that I was able to size down an entire size from my boots last year and finally get off of those wide boards and I was sold.
Now, I'm a 100 day rider, and here's where I've ran into trouble. It's been 4 months on these bad boys, and although they were treating me awesome, they've started to totally fall apart.
The heel on my right foot has completely worn through, and snow slowly packs in throughout the day either creating an ice chunk that adds a horrid pressure point, or on those warmer days my foot is completely soaked.
The stitching on my left boot ripped out above the top of my foot, so now the BOA system tightens all wacky.
Not to mention seam-ripping on both feet, so it's hard for my feet to stay dry (although they do keep warm.)
TLDR; Heel-hold is amazing! Sadly, these boots don't last if you're a 100-day rider.
This is my 2nd pair! They are the best!!!
Half a season in and thinking about buying a second pair b/c I don't ever want another boot...
Love this boot. Plain and simple.
So easy to get on; adjustable in seconds; warm as can be; light as a feather; Perfect for my riding style (not a park guy, more of a powder hound who loves to get vertical).
First, I'll need more days on the slopes in different conditions to properly write a full review. I will, however, write what I can based on 3 full days on the mountain under extremely icy conditions and zero natural snowfall (lake Tahoe, early drought season of 2011-2012)
I am an all mountain rider and my prior boot experience is the Ride Deuce mountain-freestyle boot (for newbie flexible comfort). I have extremely flat feet and I always use my Superfeet blues inserts over any insert for any shoe/boot. I have about 30 full days on the mountain and my goal in getting this boot was to have an easier lacing system, a stiffer flex and to go up a half size as my toes were getting jammed.
The Maysis boots are extremely light compared to the already light Ride Deuces. My previous boot was already a lightweight boot but the Maysis just takes it to a new level. This is almost strange as they are considerably larger making it a slightly more difficult to fit into my size large Ride RX bindings.
The Boas are nice and really help hold down my heels and really allows the my feet to stay in place. The front boas has a bias towards your shins. Not a big deal as my feet are already very well fitted inside the boot. I also dislike the placement of the front boa. It always gets in the way when strapping into my bindings. This reason alone is a big enough annoyance for me to dock a star from its rating. Something to really consider if your ankle binding strap has a wide cushion.
I found myself riding significantly faster then my previous boot and better able to carve in the icy conditions. The speed increase is definitely due to icy conditions but better carving can be attributed to having more stability in these boots.
So far I can still recommend these boots because I love its light weight, dual boa system and improved stability. I have another trip planned where there is expected to be several feet of fresh pow so an update will be in order to see how they handle better snow conditions.
good boots but....
I bought these boots on a recommendation and with out trying them on due to the fact that stores don't carry my size. I only got to ride them two days before they started killing my feet, owing to my stupid feet and not the boots fault.
Pros: I was pleased with the build and quality of the boot. Very comfortable with a good arch support. The inner Boa system works great, holding my ankle tight and in place. True to size. I wear a 7 and a 7 was just big enough. The stiffness felt right for an almountain kill it all boot.
Cons: Not enough adjustment. Coming from a pair of Burton Rulers that have way more adjustment. The Burtons have the inner liner that tightens around your ankle plus they have a booster strap up on your calf. Where the K2's only have the ankle adjustment. The Burtons outer boot have a lower and upper adjustment . Where the k2's only have one Boa to tighten both lower and upper. I really disliked that I couldn't get the upper tighter. I'm not trying to promote Burton boots or anything just trying to compare to similar items. I'm actually not a fan of Burton cause they seem to pack out fast, leaving you with to much movement .
The real reason I'm sending them back is because I've got taylor bunions. Which is the displacement of the little toe, pushing the joint out and causing some crazy discomfort. Trying to find a boot that works is super hard. So if anyone else has this problem and they have found boots that work....... I would love to know.
Awesome boot!! Easy to get on and off. 0 heel lift! Extremely comfortable!
is the liner inner face smooth, or kind...
is the liner inner face smooth, or kind of furry? I use stick on toe warmers inside my boots and was wondering how well they would stick to the liner.
K2 Conda Internal Lacing
#1 for a reason
This is the #1 Selling boot in the nation, at $250, and for good reason.
Once you put this boot on your foot you will feel the difference. The only company in the industry to use an internal BOA ankle harness system which will give you absolutely 0 heel lift and a direct integration into the outer shell for unsurpassed performance. Ontop of an Intuition heat mold liner, and K2's patented Harshmellow dampening. The reasons are clear why this is my personal favorite, the Best Selling in the country, and a highly awarded in Transworld and Snowboarder.

So i'm considering buying this boot..along with the thirty two tm-two lace. Has anybody used either of these boots? I've ridden Nitro boots for the last few years and I'm over it. Right now I'm leaning towards the Thirtytwo's, any opinions would be helpful.
I've ridden tm2s and really liked them.I tried maysis boots on at a shop and i liked the new inner-outer boa system...but i prefer traditional laces of the tm2s.
