Well no love for Ride.. Haha. I always hear about K2 being amazing or absolute shit (nobody is in between). Union I always hear about their toe caps being either... amazing or absolute shit. I went to a couple shops today hoping I could get my boots in either one but nobody was carry K2 and nobody had the Union Atlas but they had everything else. Guess I should just wait it out until I can get my boots in a pair. I'm gonna try to shoot for the Unions and depending on how they fit will decide.
