Called K2 and the guy said there were no significant changes besides appearance while the guy from Dogfunk said the toe strap was updated to be more secure. Normally, I would assume the K2 rep would be more knowledgeable but I'm not 100% positive.
Funnily enough the K2 rep is wrong. This years have the new twin adjustable toe strap, I had the 11/12 formulas and the tow strap didn't fit that great, I changed then for the 11/12 Company that has the new strap and they fit great.

In your opinion, is that new toe strap worth $85 more?

The 10/11 and 11/12 are the exact same besides colors. The 12/13 changed to a slightly different toe strap system. I haven't tried the new ones so I can't comment on them, but I've owned 10/11 and 11/12 versions and they have worked great for me. I went through the same thought pattern and decided it was not worth the extra $85-$110.

Talked to another K2 rep this morning and he said the toe strap is indeed different on this year's model. He also said the new toe strap could be purchased for $42 but he wouldn't be able to confirm that they're compatible with last year's binding until Monday morning.

Umm, probably not, I'm not convinced it's not gonna damage the toe of the boot, as the bit of strap that goes over the front of the boot is unprotected hard plastic so I feel it may scuff the leather a bit. Going away in a couple of weeks so should be able to confirm.

I don't see why they wouldn't fit. The plastic frame/chassis is the exact same. Not like they're gonne create a new mold and change the size of the little knob that keeps the ladder straps in.

Yea, I'm thinking the same thing. Just want to make sure if my friend wants the new straps.

The old straps work great also, if they do fail k2 will give you a new set for free.
