This is one pair that I absolutely could not wait to sink my feet into as the K2 T1 boot has developed a reputation for being a trustworthy, performance-packed boot that does nothing but favors for aggressive riders. They don’t call it The Godfather for nothing. Well, actually it’s technically the K2 T1 Boot, but it earned its nickname by offering a riding experience you just can’t refuse.
Find out if these K2 Snowboards boots really lives up to the hype below :

Ok, I can say more. First, the T1 features my all-time favorite lacing system. It combines a Boa Conda liner with your traditional laces for what I consider to be the perfect blend of style, functionality and ease of use.
I love the Boa liner and feel that no boot should be without it, but I definitely prefer the old school conventional laces on the outside. Utilizing both systems lets you get the perfect fit dialed in without fail every time.
Let it be known that these bad boys are stiff. And while they are rigid on the outside for attaining the ultimate response, you will undoubtedly enjoy the comforts found within.

A 3D tongue and liner are super cushy so you can ride from first to last chair without any foot fatigue. Perhaps my favorite internal feature is the mouldable J-bars.
So many boot manufacturers just stick you with those standard J-bars that end up digging in and causing extreme discomfort, but K2 lets you customize theirs so that they fit perfectly and eliminate heel lift.
K2 really got serious about the construction of the K2 T1 Boot. They built it with a 100% Urethane Endo system that drastically upgrades the longevity of this boot by slowing the breakdown and decay process.
Riders that hit triple digit days will love that the T1 maintains its high level of performance and flex integrity all year, and then you can expect the same thing again next season! That makes this boot well worth whatever price tag you find on it.
If you aren’t sold on the durability, then maybe you’ll fall for the delicious Harshmellow dampening system that totally eliminates nasty vibrations and makes those times when you send it to the flat way less brutal.
I honestly can’t say a bad thing about these boots. If I had to pick something to harp on it might be the average ankle articulation, but every other facet is absolutely exceptional.
Aggressive riders will love the K2 T1 Boots, or anyone who loves nothing more than charging hard at rugged terrain will adore the amazing response, phenomenal comfort and excellent heel hold.
For 100 days a season at 100 mph, you have got to get your feet into the K2 T1 Boots.
