There's a reason the K2 T1 Men's Boa Snowboard Boot is the go-to choice for heavy-hitting backcountry rippers like team rider Shaun McKay. It combines the reliability of traditional lacing on the shell and the speed and convenience of Boa Conda on the liner. A stiffer flex enables all-mountain domination with a snug, supportive feeling throughout that has been designed to greatly reduce boot breakdown.
Traditional lacing allows you to adjust the tightness in specific places so you can keep it looser for mellow pows turns and tighten it up when you're pointing it down. The Boa Conda liner lacing system adjusts the liner from the outside to securely lock your foot in place to prevent heel lift and foot fatigue, and Endo construction uses a urethane structure with flex zones that increase in stiffness towards the spine of the boot to provide additional support and a lively feel. An Intuition Pro Foam 3D liner molds to the shape of your foot for a comfy, custom fit, which improves response and board feel by making the boot feel like an extension of your foot.
The Vibram ProLite outsole is rugged and tough to ensure traction and durability whether you're crossing icy traverses mid-winter or scrambling up rocks for late season corn shredding. High-rebound Harshmellow cushioning in the heel and forefoot dampens vibrations for a smoother ride and absorbs shock to make landings softer and more controlled. Harshmellow is also featured in the dual-density EVA footbed for even more cushioning so your feet can take a beating and still get up for more.

Based on other reviews across the web, these were supposed to be stiff, awesome boots. I'm a freerider and spend most my time charging or winding my way through the trees.
Regular stance: Flow NX2-RS bindings (XL): Size 10.5 boot
Pros: Comfortable; especially my left foot. I had no foot fatigue or pinching, and was able to get the laces/conda tight enough to prevent heel lift. Turn initation was good when combined with my fairly stiff bindings.
Cons: I put a lot of stress on my back boot when cruising through trees because I'm constantly making drastic direction changes. After maybe 10 runs, I kept having tighten up the laces, and it felt like the boot was already loosing some of it's stiffness. Even after retying, I just couldn't get the back boot to my liking. Adding insult to injury, my back lace has started fraying.
I'd give 3.5 if I could because they're comfy and have very little heel lift. Unfortunately, I can't give a full 4 because at $300, I shouldn't notice any loss in stiffness or have a fraying lace after a day of hard riding.
Get these boots you will be stoked

Best boot on the market!! Boots are so important in a Setup.I've been snowboard for over 15 years. If your feet aren't happy.your not happy.The traditional lace on the outside and boa on the inside is the best combination.. The boa on the inside completely gets rid on heel lift which has been a issue for ever!!this boot is the most comfortable boot I've tried on..you try on cheap boots and they feel like slippers,but they also ride like slippers and you blow out your ankles.this boot feels like a slipper and rides like a beast..if you go big you need boots that can handle it. They use vibram soles sick traction and they have harsh mellow for dampening,this stuff rocks! It's a medium stiff boot. Keeps your feet real warm.But I ride this thing on anything from all day in the park to street to backcountry kickers. If your looking for boot that will last more then one season , and make your feet happy look no further! Well worth it!
