It's no surprise that the K2 Men's Darko Boa Snowboard Boot is the choice year after year for K2's rail slaying riders. A versatile medium flex, lightweight feel, and low key good looks make it a no brainer for street urchins and park rats alike. But don't think this is some flimsy skate shoe wannabe either the Darko isn't afraid to leave the park and ride the rest of the mountain when nature decides to drop the goods. Designed to be the lightest sole possible, the Street Lite outsole features blown rubber on the inside for serious weight shavings and cushioning, with a full rubber perimeter to retain durability and traction. It also features Harshmellow dampening to absorb shock from overshot landings and big urban drops. Additional cushioning can be found in the full length EVA insole, which also helps smooth out the ride in rough terrain. Traditional lacing allows you to adjust the tightness in specific places so you can get loose for tweaked slides during rail sessions and tighten it up when you're hitting the jump line. The Boa Conda liner lacing system adjusts the liner with a twist of the knob on the outside of the boot to securely lock your foot in place to prevent heel lift and foot fatigue. Moldable J bars can be customized for further heel hold, and a micro articulating cuff allows the boot to flex naturally. An Intuition Control Foam 3D liner molds to the shape of your foot for a comfy, custom fit, which improves response and board feel by making the boot feel like an extension of your foot.
