please don't use an oven... you are better off breaking them in by riding in them.

bluetroll i ride 09 T1's... i don't like the feel of the BOA lacing. I prefer to have it looser at the toe and super tight ankle and above, BOA tightens everything equally. I love my T1's... I got some custom j-bars put in from the boot fitter and i love them even more now!

Triple8Sol I've been riding my T1 DB's all season, around 25x now. They were painful as hell the first couple days out, because they're K2's 2nd stiffest boot, plus I cram into a full size smaller than my street shoe. After breaking in though, they're awesome. I need to get them heat molded though...didn't have the chance at first and then forgot about it as the season progressed.

bluetroll T1 is a stiff boot... just ride the boots until they mold to your foot.

BurtonAvenger OMG I could stab those fuckers in the face. Does your foot generate 200 degrees of heat? I highly doubt it when that foam is fully heated up it becomes so maliable it pushes out. I'm a 10 3/4ths for a right and a 9 and 3/4ths for a left and I'm in a size 10, I could go down to a 9.5 easily. Thats a true intuition liner it is meant to be heat molded.

Good news is i got the formula for $80 and the DB for $140, bad news is that unless u work somewhere that sells k2 u wont be able to get this deal. I work at sport chalet in so cal and we get good deals from the reps of all the boarding companies.

So your saying it's better to have it heat molded at the shop vs wearing the boots for a few hours? This is what one of the shop recommended. "Just wear them for an hour and they will mold to your feet. No need for the heat blower."

Also, fitting should be the same correct (T1 and DB)?
