My formulas are 2012's. I actually took the F20's back and tried Burtons before I settled on 32's.
As for thermal forming boots, the owner of my local says it's good if you have a specific fit problem. Otherwise it just breaks down your boots sooner.
I thought they looked like 2012, but all the advertising pictures I've seen show them to have a black and grey pattern on them, yours just look black?
