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.

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!

If you absolutely cannot get to a shop and you know for sure that you need heat molding .. use your oven, carefully. Check the googs.

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