K2 Boots?

I'm thinking about getting the K2 T1's. I have tried them on and they feel comfortable. My question is how are they as far as durability, quality, and breaking in and packing out. I like a boot that is fairly stiff and i have narrow feet. I dont think weight or preference of what I ride is important here. I will be using burtons capstrap bindings with these. Any oppinions inputs or suggestions are welcome. thank you

I personally despise K2 boots. When the liner packs out, it feels like there is no liner at all, much like a crusty, out-dated piece of foam. K2 boots as a whole are built well, but the liner sucks imo.

I got the same feeling when I was trying on boots earlier this week.. granted this was the -170$ range. Seemed like they tried to skimp by putting padding only where they thought it needed to be....

Any suggestions in the $200-250 range of quality well made boots. I got a pair of burton hails that made the tops of my feet feel like they got stomped on halfway through the day so i returned them. Then I was set on 32's since I heard so much good stuff about them. The TM twos in particular until I tried them on. Flexing my foot does downward when trying these on gave the impression of pressure points on the tops of my feet like the burtons. My old boots are nitro and they actually feel pretty good besides I bought them a half size to small. So my next choice would be the Nitro Anthem, but I havent got to try them on. Any thoughts on the anthems or nitro boots in general?

edit "when i flex my foot/toes downward" that looked confusing.
By the way im going to try on boots before I buy them, but I would like to narrow my search down b4 i try on 50 pair of boots to a quality well made boot that will last.
