I'll do it.

I dont give a shit how nice their soles are when the construction turns to mush after 30 days. $400 boots should probably last longer than that. Oh and they also shouldnt have cardboard in the liners and shell.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I guess that's your personal experience. I had my '09 ZF1s last me up until this season and the only reason I'm getting rid of the is because my feet outgrew them. Anyway, that's just my personal experience

Ill chime in since I love giving my opinion on feculent brands and product. I should say I have never tried Nike boots, but I am going to give an opinion nonetheless because I'm that awesome and rarely wrong.

The reason why Nike makes crappy boots is because their core product of runners and sports wear is the food equivalent of Mcdonalds. To branch off into something they know even less about then making their core product is a recipe for failure. To me this would be like Mcdonalds deciding to make wine. Again, i haven't ever used them, but like the analogy of Mcdonalds and making their own wine I wouldnt need to try it to know it would be vinological feces.

Oh, and not that it matters because your pants cover them up, but they look ridicules with that large "swoosh" on the side.

Kind of like their coffee?

The real reason Nike doesn't have to make good boots is because they don't have to. Just make something soft and squishy right out of the box and they'll work great for all the snowboard posers who only ride them 2-3 times a year. Nike does a good job attracting brand whores, especially when you throw $400 pricetags on them, then offer an even shittier boot at $200 which is the one everyone actually buys, because it too has a swoosh.

Are you saying snowboarding is really just about marketing?
