Default New boots, K2 UFO?

Ive been riding with my K2 T1 Dual Boa for 2 years now. Im shopping for new boots and since I love my old boots Ive been looking at the UFO modell from K2, since it seems very similar. Does anyone know if they are roughly the same size as the K1 T1? Cant find any measurments on K2s site.

It has the same shell/liner sizing in it the only difference is Endo construction and stiffness. The Maysis is essentially the old T1 DB

Is the T1 too stiff to be a do anything boot? I found last year's model (boa liner, traditional lace outer) for $150, wondering if I should pull the trigger

The UFO is an extremely stiff boot. Stiffer than the driver X, and quite a bit stiffer than my maysis boots. I would try it on first, as to me it was uncomfortably stiff.
