Default K2 T1 DB boots opinions

Anyone have any opinions on these boots before i order them? I wasn't able to try the T1 DB's on but i was able to try on the regular T1's on and the 12s felt pretty good ans was wondering with no laces and more boa system on it will it still fit ok? Or should i just go with the regular T1? I really am sick of laces and i think it would be awsome to have no laces but the question is , is it still a good boot? It was kind of weird when i tried on the raider i was able to wear an 11.5 i guess that 1 just runs big.

Its the exact same shell and liner, so you should be fine. But why are you sick of laces. You tie them once a day, and untie them once a day, how bad could that be. BOA's can be sketchy just cause they hit your boot differently than laces, possibly causing pressure points. I guess if I was you, I'd just stick with the regular T1's. They still have the external liner system, so you shouldnt ever have to untie your boots during the day.

I need to know where you got the Formula and DB.. That's a hell of a deal.

^ Good deal man. The thing with the T1 DB is that you want to buy it uncomfortable and then have them heat molde the liner that will make it fit better.

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)?

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.

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.

Guys,

If I buy the boot online, any suggestion how to heat mold the liners the way the store would? Also, I know the regular T1 is categorized as all-mtn, but with that much stiffness, you think it's comfortable to ride in the park without removing tongue?

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