Ive ridden these for a full season. At the time I bought them I was deciding between these and the Ride Hera Boa. Both were comfy in store but I chose K2 due to the price point (sale). I am happy I bought them
I am difficult to fit, next to nothing of an achilles and a medium thick leg. I need my boots to really grab my heel. In the past I have had Salomon and Nike which were not a great match and had to be doctored to feel good.
These boots have room in the toes, so if you have a toe section these will be a good fit. but do have that grab in the heel, I feel in control riding in these boots. The boa system is a bit strange but it works if you set up the sling that is betwen the liner and outer which essentially is where you would want the tighness over your ankle. Initially i had a little pressure where the boa crosses over the arch, but it went away after a couple of rides.
There is a lot of fluffy in these boots which have packed out comfortably, buy them fitted snug, a size below your regular shoe size.
Make sure you try them on with your bindings to get the most out of them/make sure they are compatible.
Overall they are a great boot, Ill be getting them again in the future. Hope this helps!
