Hey guys. So I recently warrantied a pair of 2020 K2 Recons. They had regular 5355 alpine outsoles. K2 sent me the new 2022 model and the outsoles are that GripWalk bullshit. I have 2016 Marker Griffon bindings and, as far as I'm aware, they're incompatible with GripWalk soles.
I'd really appreciate if people could help me with a few questions:
1. On K2's site, they say that the outsoles are replaceable, but I have no idea if I can swap them for 5355 soles or if they mean I can only replace them with their GripWalk soles. Can I replace the GripWalk soles with 5355 ones? If so, what parts should I be looking for?
2. Do any stores typically carry this shit, or is this going to be an online-only type of thing?
3. If I can't replace the outsoles, I'm gonna need to upgrade my bindings. If this is the case, can I reuse the same drill holes from my previous bindings?
