I've had near the exact opposite experience as zk0ot. Tried on a pr of Nikes (ZF1s) at the store & couldn't get them off fast enough. They immediately made my feet hurt. Kind of odd seeing as I wear Nike shoes daily. Then I tried on a pr of 686/NBs (580 speed lace). So plush. On the stiffer side, but that's what I like. I've been wearing them for a season now & continue to like them. They may be a bit bulkier than some boots out there, but that doesn't really bother me.

I don't mean to say this like zk0ot is wrong. Instead to point out that not every boot is for everyone and that you really need to try before you buy.
