2023 K2 Dispatch, FL3X, & Recon Team Boots

We talk with K2 Boots’ Product Line Manager, Tom Pietrowski, about all the new boots they’re launching for the 2022-2023 season, including the brand-new Dispatch series of touring boots, Recon Team alpine boot, and the rebranding of Full Tilt as “K2 FL3X” boots.

We get into how the Dispatch boots compare to K2’s Mindbender boots; the differences between the Dispatch Pro, Dispatch LT, and Dispatch boots; Tom being a royal bootfitter; the origin of the fixed-cuff, tech-toe Recon Team boot; and get a breakdown of the K2 FL3X line of 3-piece boots.
