Ok so I just got back from the shop. All they had in my size was the 32 lashed and the Salomon Savage. The guy also recommended I try the K2 Darko and those actually felt pretty good, I had them on for a good 30 mins and they felt like I wasn't even waring anything.

He also said that trying on the lashed would not all lead to the assumption that the TM-two would fit. What do you guys think about this? I can't find any shop that stocks them so it seems trying them on is not an option but I don't want to take them out of the running since so many of you recommend them. They are super light though wow! And the TM-2 has the upgraded lining so they would be slightly more comfortable right?

I tried the Salomon Savage just for the hell of it and those felt way too stiff. It seemed that the design was not made for the flex of a foot. It didn't bend naturally at all. Of course they had no F2, 3 or 4 so couldn't try those either.

What do you guys think, should I get the TM-2's sent here and see if they feel better then the K2's or what?

Man I love my savages, I've gone through like 5 pairs of boots, and they have been by far the most comfortable. And they didn't seem too stiff, like a mid flex boot, but everybody's foot is different.

I'm not sure what the savage is in terms of stiffness but it felt like that an 8 or 9 would feel like. The Lashed and the Darko's felt like a world of a difference in flex. Don't get me wrong they felt stable, but if I ever where to venture in the park( which I do) I would have a real hard time doing any rail or box type features because there felt like zero give.

My Tm-twos in the same size are alot tighter on my toebox than the Lashed, but this is a 3 or 4 year old model. According to my 32 rep, this should not be, so perhaps it is fixed now. I prefer my Tm-Two's they are just an awesome boot but the Lashed has always fit me better.

In terms of lining, does your model of the TM's have the level 4 lining? Cause i noticed the Lashed has the level 3 and they there didn't seem to me much in terms of comfort in the lining. Do the TM's have a more plush lining? I'm not sure how long they have had the level 4 lining over the Lashed level 3

What I'm really asking if if there is a significant increase in overall comfort in terms of lining. Because currently I feel like the Lashed would start to tire out my foot after a long day on the mountain.
Can't really compare, due to the lower volume in the Tm-two, I use the original footbed. In my Lashed I have Remind Medics in there which are super plush and take care of my dogs.

No matter what boot you get, can't say enough about getting something either completely custom, or at least plush and nice like Reminds (which are also orthopedic, they line ur bones up all good n stuff).

Lol ok now here is another question for you. Should I maybe go a half size up if I plan to put some custom liners in there?
