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

Hey i been also using k2 t1db foar couple years. Love these boots but starting to pack out so today i bought some 2012 k2 thraxis fer only $279. They are stiffies and have 3 dials. Ive tried dc status and driver x boots.. All stiff boots great for freeride.. But i like k2 the best.

Which one is stiffer between the T1 and UFO? K2 website says they are both an 8..

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.
