The Gist

Sometimes the marketing team gets it so right without a bunch of superfluous platitudes. This is one of those times. So we're just gonna steal what K2 say about this boot: "Designed for women looking for comfort all day, from the morning in the parking lot to the afternoon in the lodge." Testers said “amen” to that, and nicely done hitting the target.

Fit

It's big, testers said, with room everywhere and plenty of cushion for the thick of foot or women looking for a relaxed fit. The ankle pockets grab the foot just enough to make turns happen. The cuff is open to accept thicker calves even with the spoiler in. Removing it provides substantially more room there. Putting the B.F.C. W 90 on was super-easy.

Performance

The 90 flex held its own, maybe even punched above its weight class a bit when taxed, testers said. It was reasonably quick turn-to-turn, even for our slender footed testers who weren't touching wall-to-wall. The cuff was supportive, capable of making strong, predictable edging moves. Testers all dug the ease of use and range of walking motion provided by the Synchro Interlock cuff release.

Cool Features

The soft, bi-injected material at the instep makes this boot ridiculously easy to get on and off. Pop the cuff release and it virtually crawls onto your foot.  There are ease-on double pull loops on the liner but we doubt anyone will ever use both. The soles are grippy for secure walking and K2's standard (and cool) lateral cuff adjustment mechanisms are on board. B.F.C.? Bargain For Certain.
