Just because they call a boot a 102mm doesn't mean you have to have a foot the shape of a Christmas ham to wear it. K2 tabs the Spyne 130 HV (High Volume) for hefty feet but in this case the HV designation is relative to its slimmer medium-width brother, Spyne 130.

You wouldn't call a light-heavyweight cage fighter a fat-ass, and we're glad we approached the 130 HV with similar respect. It’s a badass, and fully ripped for all-mountain destruction. It's wide enough to feel distinctly different from the other 100mm K2's, but just barely, and rightly testers put the 130 HV on the narrowest end of the wide-last group. They loved the fit, flex pattern and winning combination of stutter-step, quick-turn agility with a haymaker style power arc.

The Intuition liner fit (lower portion) opens up somewhat after a full cook job, but the Spyne 130 HV is a big guy boot—but not necessarily a big foot boot. Medium width feet will be plenty happy here. And for good skiers who traditionally go narrow but just don't want the bootfitting hassles that often entails—here's a one-stop shop solution. Skis like a narrow, fits like a wide (almost).
