Well, after a half or full dozen trips to the REI flagship store’s bargain basement to see if anyone returned snowboard boots my size, I finally lucked out.

The EXACT boot I wanted to buy new or used, in my EXACT size, returned but not damaged or worn excessively, just used one season. The K2 Maysis DB in original penguin collab guise.

i'm shitting with happiness

Because of my REI dividend from last year’s orlieb pannier purchase, and a birthday gift card from the boss, and the insanely low price of these used boots, I didn’t actually pay a cent for these out of my own accounts. They’re awesome.

Super lightweight, fit me like a glove, great features… they’re gonna be awesome. The double BOA cable lacing system is awesome.

I’m ready for next season.

the best thing that's ever happened to me in REI

This does of course make me want to upgrade my bindings, board, or both.

snow better watch it's back. i'm coming for it.
