Definitely not. I also have a narrow foot, especially in the heel and wear an 11 street shoe and 10.5 F22s are perfect for me. I've tried on shit tons of boots and the Salomon F series are the only boots I've found yet that really fit me well.

I mean, it's a good boot and all, but I'm not touting it as the end all, be all. I have very limited experience with boots in terms of riding simply because the vast majority obviously just don't fit me at all right out of the box. I've just given up on finding other boots. When I need new boots, I just find the best deal on F22s that I can and order them.

What's the flex on the F22's? I may have to do some investigating.

BTW I contacted K2 about this problem and was told to send them back, the guy said it may be a defective pair(anyone else ever go through that with boots?) and that if I returned them they would send me a new pair because the toe cap should NOT be showing any wear and mine is already fighting it's way off the boot.

When I was in the Army I knew a man who had 3 rules about sex, one of them was "quantity not quality". I really regret not asking him what 200 pound twins would classify as.

F22 is pretty stiff. I'd consider it an all-mountain boot that leans more toward the freeriding side of the equation. The F20 is more of an all-mountain boot that leans toward the freestyle side of the equation.

If K2 is telling you they'll swap them out, take them up on it. Shit happens. When you mass produce things, a couple of lemons will inevitably slip through occasionally.

I had the K2 T1 DB a couple seasons ago, basically one step up from the Maysis. They held up great for ~40 days of riding that season. I loved the the harshmellow and Vibram. They still had plenty of life left in them...I just got rid of them b/c I decided to go back to speedlacing.
