Just bought some K2 T1's from Backcountry.com to replace my shredded Ride RFL's. I've been wearing them around the house a bit to help aide in the break in and I've been having trouble with the outside both feet getting numb from my little toe to my heel. The boot is comfortable and doesn't feel like it puts too much pressure on my feet, but obviously it's a bit tight on the outside. My question is would the boots break in enough to alleviate the pressure?
Well I'm real curious about your RFL's. Think you could post a pic or two?
Are they the 2013 model? They should be under warranty still, shouldn't they be?
I bought a pair of these too. They are absolutely fucked, they look like I've had them for 10 years & put over a thousand days on them.
One of the laces snapped on like day 3
, not that big of a deal as it was up towards the handle. Didn't really affect anything.
What the fuck is that garbage?
That shit is peeling up like an old sundeck. The lower half of both my boots are no longer covered in "Superfabric"
Now that the waterproof plastic coating is gone they have become "Supersponges"
I just paid to have one plastic macaroni noodle for the speed laces put back in a pair of old Burton Ions. $16 bucks.
It looks like all
the macaroni noodles in my RFL's are starting to rip out
The stitching has come out of one of the toes
, I could probably stick my finger right through to the liner @ the toe.
I say probably cause I haven't tried, I try not to even touch them.
I have only had them for 3 or 4 months, with maybe 25-30 days on them.
My Burton Grails have more than 100 days on them. They are a hell of a lot softer than they used to be, but none of the stitching has come apart.
There are barely any wear marks @ all.
They have lost most of their stiffness too, which is why I bought them.
This is so disappointing
Cause these are/were the most comfortable boots I've ever had.
I rode in these for 13 hours one day, never had to re-tighten them.
When I got to my car @ the end of the day, I didn't even loosen them.
I drove an hour & a half with them on, when I got home I went straight for the couch & forgot I was wearing them.
I was amazed, never in 25 years have I made it home with my boots still on.
Sorry for the massive high jack.
To answer your question. They'll probably be perfect.
You can have them heat molded more than once. Just don't tighten them up much, or @ all towards the upper half of the boot.
Have it done once & if it still too tight, take note of the area & make appropriate size foam shims to stick to your foot for the 2nd mold.
Don't put shims in the first one, they'll probably settle in nicely.
