These are my third set of skates, and I use them for 20 - 30 mile runs on paths and roads. They are also the first skates I've had that don't destroy my toes. The Boa system makes a huge difference in fit and convenience. Add that to a smooth, controlled ride, a high ankle that makes it easy to hold form and good wheels and bearings and I'm extremely happy. The only improvement I could ask is longer lasting brakes.
I was not impressed with the construction of these skates. I bought them because I was eager to move up in wheel size from my 80 MM wheels, and these are slightly larger at 84 MM, plus they can be upsized later to 90 MM, which I thought was a great design idea. However, the boots felt cramped on my wide foot. Also, the tongue of the boot did not appear to be well manufactured or designed. One of the tongues did not even completely cover the boot space on top, leaving a gap exposing my part of my foot. I was also not impressed with the BOA closure system, which has a small diameter lace and hardware that looked like a problem waiting to happen. It did not look particularly heavy duty. Despite the above, I probably still would have kept the skates, but they did not come with a spare axle, so I could not remove the rear brake. Since I returned these skates, I cannot comment on the actual skating quality. Also, I will admit the Roller blades which I bought instead, are even less comfortable on my wide foot than these K2's were.
