$750 Last: 98, 100mm Flex: 130 1650g
The K2 Recon will make you want to hit jumps, hammer a mogul field, and go full throttle down your favorite groomer. Its low weight makes it incredibly agile and quick, while a robust and progressive flex means you can crank high-speed turns without it buckling under pressure. K2 designed the boot with a thermo polyurethane (TPU) blend of four plastics that are optimized in different parts of the boot. For instance, the instep has a soft plastic for easier ingress and egress, while a stiff chassis and spine keep things strong. The liner is heat-moldable and feels fat and cushy out of the box. So while it fits nicely after a good bake, the potential for an early pack-out is significant. Overall, K2 knocked it out of the park with this lightweight, powerful boot.
