Did you move the rear and front base adjustment out? Rears are probably ok but the fronts could use a bit more and the toe strap looks a bit sketch. Size Large for Flux is 10-13+. I think you'll survive but not optimal.

looks like your front toe strap has only a few clicks left.
looks a little on the small side to me.

Kaiju looks a lot better and should be just right once the straps pack out. ZF size 10 is not going to fit a M Flux. Flux L is 10-13 and the ZF is already a bulky boot.

That is a pretty big difference for half a size must be a big difference in the shapes of the boots. The 10's will not fit but the 9.5 are a perfect fit.

One suggestion, dry fitting unlaced boots into bindings can cause a bunch of unforseen problems. Tightly lacing the boot (onto your foot) is the best idea. This pulls the boot further into its natursal upside-down-7 position and allows the heel to move fully back into the heel cup. Then when the binding is tightly ratcheted down it will pull back even further. That may be part of what you are seeing. Nike boots can be overly bulky (some models are) and that will play a role. The important thing is where your actual foot lines up. If you can get another cm or so, that might be a workable fit, but for that boot a large looks better. If you have a minute please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

Thanks all. The ZF1 boot is much larger....The Kaiju fits the binding perfect. Good thing I tried both before sending these back. These bindings will be going on my Proto so the Kaiju will be a great riding boot for more all mountain freestyle...

We need a thread with the most popular boots on the most popular bindings. Just so that we have a "database" to work with.

BTW, those ZF1's will cut up the Flux top strap. That bulky lace holder that sticks out on the side is the culprit. I have seen this happen several times now.
