man it's hard for someone to throw a size number at you. At least go to a local shop and try on a few pairs to judge what size you need, then go from there.

+1. My 2014 Nike Vapen size 10 fits my foot the same as my 2013 Nike zoom ites. Go try this years Nike boots and it will fit about the same as past years.

I've read on that gigantic 100+ page thread on easyloungin (am i allowed to mention another site?) that nike does not really have 0.5 sizes. What they actually do is something like put a size 8 liner in a size 9 shell for size 8.5. Source was a guy that seems pretty knowledgeable about Nike stuff since he seemed to own a shop or work at a shop and has been riding Nike every year.

Also nothing related with size but for your reference I have nothing to complain about my Kaiju's from last year but it felt softer than I would've liked. I used to ride mostly lower end DC boots like DC park/rogan etc.

My friend bought a pair as well and he thought they were too soft too. He used to ride Thirtytwo TM's.

They're not like they have no flex, but I would still classify them on the softer end of medium flex boots. Also it was impossible to put J-bars to increase the flex because they would make the boots gigantically fat and uncomfortable (local shop hooked me up with some).

Dude you're about to be banned. Normally it's just a warning but when it's EL there is no warning just bannage.

Most boot manufacturers do not have true sizing, which means 8.5 is actually 8 with a thinner liner, or something like that.

Bullshit. There isn't anything wrong about mentioning EL here.

To the OP you are really varied in your shoe size. Anything from a 9 to a 10.5? There is no way anyone is going to be able to pick a boot for you here with such a wide variable. Personally, I wear a 12.5 Nike shoe, both in running styles and in skateboarding styles. For my Nike DK snowboard boots that I picked up this season I went with a size 12. They've started to pack out and fit snug. No pain.

pretty risky to pick boot sizes without trying them on, but if you're desperate, Nike in my experience is the same size in length compared to Burton. However, this is in the length dimension only... my Burtons were wider with more volume and a larger heel.
