I tried on Burtons, K2s, and Nikes. I liked the Nike Kaiju's the best but $350 seems kind of ridiculous to me. I found the Nike DK's online for $240 which is do-able, but I'm not sure how much they are geared toward freeriding. I live in NJ. In both the shops I was in it seemed like all they cared about was selling me the most expensive thing possible. That's why I came here. I wanted to get some unbiased opinions.
