The K2 Haven boot felt very stiff, with hardly any flex, which is perfect for freeride. I have a very wide foot and a high arch, which causes lots of foot pain if riding all day in a narrow boot. This boot felt like it cradled my foot very well, but it was still too tight/narrow. Also my heel kept slipping up and over the J bars on the side of the liner (could potentially cause blisters). Probably a solid boot for a girl with average to narrow feet, but no recommended for those with wide feet.
