Thanks BA, went ahead and returned Nike's. Tried on K2, Salomon, Nitro, Dc and new balance and while the new balance double boa was sick i found K2 Darko to fit like a glove. Picking them up tomorrow for less then Nike's. Nike was a nice boot but not for my foot, i guess hype is why i wanted them to work so good plus i didn't want to spend 5 hrs trying on boots. The boa on darko was phenomenal and felt natural, really looking forward.
