Complete customization and control.

As K2's best-selling boot, the K2 Men's Maysis Boa Snowboard Boot offers a responsive flex, the quick-tightening convenience of Boa lacing, and long-lasting Endo construction. Equipped with a dual Boa closure, the Maysis offers complete control over the external and internal zones with its Boa Coiler external lacing and Boa Conda liner system. This double Boa combination gives you the precision to dial-in your preferred support over the outer shell and internal liner. Crank both dials all the way for the utmost in response and control, or keep them a bit looser for extra freedom of movement. Either way, the fit and response is totally customizable to your liking and the terrain at hand.

Retaining its responsive flex throughout the course of the season, the Maysis features K2's ingenious Endo urethane exoskeleton that resists breakdown better than traditional stitch-and-glue construction. Its dual-density tongue offers high levels of energy transfer without pinching or pressure points, thanks to its 3D-formed design. The heat-moldable Intuition Control Foam 3D liner comfortably conforms to the shape of your foot for a supportive, incredibly comfortable fit. Add in Harshmellow dampening along the boot's footbed and outsole for a super-smooth ride when you're riding over choppy snow and stomping harsh landings.

The most comfortable boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The build quality of the boot is great. It fits true to size, the liner will form to your feet after a couple runs on the slope. I love the harshmellow technology in the soles. The BOA system is pretty convenient. The boot is a bit stiffer than I had hoped however. So far no wear like the other reviews state. The only thing I don't like about these boots are the velcro on the liner of the boot.

6 days ....boa broke....12 days....tears

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I think these fit great, but the quality isn't just bad, it's terrible. On the 6th day of riding one of the BOA's broke. After 12 days, a tear developed. K2 offered me a discount on buying a new pair, and wouldn't acknowledge their responsibility. I would avoid.

BTW: this was just normal resort riding days. Nothing that should have destroyed a boot that quickly.

Poor Design

    Like others on here, really wanted to like this boot. It looks awesome but the performance is seriously lacking. After one day on the mountain, the inside BOA popped through the shell and was tightening directly on my foot rendering the boot unusable. K2 guys tried to set me up with another one but I took a pass. Have used other BOA systems in the past and they've worked well but it's a universal truth that the strain of a BOA system wears out a boot quicker than traditional lacing. My go-to is the 32 Lashed for the price point and comfort.

    Lastly, here is a picture of the Boa cables cutting right through the shell, not a problem that affects the performance per se but eventually the cables will wear a hole through the shell.

    Here is a picture of the heel peeling from the boot. I even bought new bindings to try and alleviate this issue to no avail (I do, however love my Now Pilots).

    Good for about 2 days

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really wanted to like this boot, and for what it's worth, they did perform decently.. for about 2 days. I am an intermediate-advanced rider, 5'7" 165-170 lbs., size 9.5 on Now IPOs and Now Pilots, riding a Yes The Greats 2013. I ride about 20 days a year mostly in the Northeast with a four day trip to CO. The problems started when the sole of the boot began to peel from the boot starting at the heel. I rode Nike Zoom Vapens with the same bindings all last year and didn't see any wear at all. I only switched because I wanted a stiffer/more responsive boot. I now regret that decision. Then the Boa cables started to cut into the shell in various places, eventually this will cause a tear. The straw that broke the camel's back is the closure system at the toe box separating from the shell. This renders the boot unusable as I can no longer tighten the boot adequately to ride. See the pictures below for more details. Furthermore, be advised that if you do purchase this boot, you're more likely to fall walking around than riding. The eva sole is super slippery, many times I've nearly fallen just walking from the parking lot to the lift. Terrible design. I'm very disappointed.

    Responsive, but worried about longevity

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've mostly been riding Burton boots and wanted to try something different with the K2s. I was looking for a slightly stiffer/more responsive boot than my Burton Rulers, and was interested in trying out the BOA system. A local shop rep recommended these. These felt much stiffer than my old Rulers. I actually need to get used to how different the response feels, especially when engaging the toe edge.

    While these boots were very comfortable when trying them on in the store, my first day of riding led to some serious foot pain and numbness in my toes. I haven't had the liners molded though, so I might just need to give it a few more days to let them break-in.

    I like that the inner lining is adjustable via the BOA, rather than having a separate pull-and-lock tightener.

    My issue is with the durability of the outer shell. After a single day of riding, there is a nice little hole worn in the back of the boot where it makes contact with my binding. I tried to bring them back for a warranty replacement, but the manager told me that K2 would consider this "normal wear-and-tear" and that he couldn't help me. This is not an issue I'm used to seeing. I've put 50+ days on my Rulers and haven't noticed any holes or tearing on the binding contact points. To have this happen on my first day of using them is disappointing.

    Finally, there isn't a whole lot of footprint reduction with these compared with the Burtons. I wear a size 11 and am definitely getting some toe-overhang.

    For me, the pros don't outweigh the cons. I'll ride these for the rest of the season and hopefully the comfort gets better as they break-in, but I'm worried about the longevity of the outer shell. So far I've only had 1 day in these boots, so I'll have to update this review when I get more time in.

    Hi Anthony, any update?
