Freestyle flex and ankle support unite.
It's really no surprise that the K2 Men's Darko Boa Snowboard Boot is the go-to choice for K2's rail and park slayers, thanks to its versatile, mid-level flex and Harshmellow cushioning. However, that's not to say it sacrifices support when you're shredding the entire mountain—this boot is just as happy carving up groomers and threading trees as it is getting down on jibs.
Traditional lacing is complemented with a Boa Conda dial for ankle security at higher speeds. Boa Conda precisely tightens the liner, eliminating excess foot movement when you're charging the mountain and hitting bigger jumps. Ultimately, this combination gives you the customized feel you've come to love from lace-up boots, but with the extra security of a Boa dial controlling the liner.
One of the best features lies within the Intuition Control Foam 3D liner, which provides a customized fit as you ride throughout the season. This plush, foot-conforming liner features internal J-bars that clutch your ankle to prevent heel lift. Harshmellow impact damping absorbs flat landings in the park and fatiguing vibration when you're cruising over chopped-up snow. And for the lightweight, low-profile feel desired by freestyle riders, the Street-Lite sole keeps the boot streamlined, with a grippy tread pattern for walking across icy surfaces.

Sold on these after too many boat boots created odd pressure on my food about 5 years ago... I decided to go back to some good old lace style boots and although some boa is incorporated, the feel is very custom. Great fit and very warm.. I will have a hard time finding an alternative if they stop making these boots. my 1st pair are still ridable!!!
