Sounds like you would've been better off with the Maysis from K2's line-up. Imperial is a great boot too...I rocked that a couple yrs ago.

Plus the T1s may have been a bit stiff for my liking, even though it seems like you can make them pretty forgiving. I never planned to buy Imperials and wanted traditional laceup but after trying on this year's Imperials they just felt better all around (for my feet at least) than the T1, 32 Tm Two, and Vans Wiig. The right amount of stiffness with a 7/10 flex I'd like for all mtn freestyle. I've used quick lace systems before and have to admit they are super quick, never broke, and easy to give two quick pulls halfway through the day if needed.
How was the width of the Imperials vs. K2 (and other 32 boots?). Local shops are small around here, and the box stores don't have their stock in yet. I found the K2 maysis ever so slightly too narrow (perhaps heat molding would have helped) and ride 32 Lashed, which work widthwise but maybe too wide.

The K2's have a relatively roomy toebox too, but the Burton Imperial/Ion has slightly more room.

My problem is that the width of my foot starts in the middle

I found a boot fitter in LA. But he doesn't sell snowboard boots (he'll fit them though). So I have to pick one and then go there
