I have a pair of the K2 Raider boots as well. Hated them the first couple of days, felt like here was a few bad pressure points. After 6 days or so they packed out nice and now I really like them, no more pressure points or anything at all. These are my first Boa boots (other than my fly fishing boots) and I think the trick is to not overtighten them, which can be easy and tempting to do. If your boots don't feel great the first few days, just give them a little more time before you give up on them. I'll be sticking with the Boa system for the forseeable future. The first few days I think I did a lot of adjusting and re-tightening, but not anymore, I realized that most of the time I was overtightening them if anything.
