K2 always makes a quality boot even if it is for beginners. This is a hassle free lace em up quick boot. A lot of beginner boots have the same problem. The lacing system usually doesn’t have any locks as you lace up the boot so the tightening system is just like a single BOA boot. It limits your adjustability. If you are ok with this then these are a good start. If not we would suggest moving up one price level to the next boot so you have more adjustability.
