Quality of NIKE boots V.S. ThirtyTwo boots
 
I have had ThirtyTwo TM-2 boots for the last 4 years and it's time to upgrade. The boots have held up great and have many days on them, but I'd like to try a a new brand. My question is how is the quality of NIKE boots? Do they wear out faster or is the quality just as nice as ThirtyTwo? I will be trying these on at my local shop, but I want to make sure the quality is there and will last me a while.

I've not really read that much on the quality of nike boots, but there happens to be much more on the comfort and fit of them. Last year I bought the Nike Zoom Ites, and after I had them heat molded they felt like heaven on my feet and I don't think anything could compare. I would wear these badboys to school if it snowed hard enough, thats how fresh they are.

I've riden them for probably about, 7 days maybe and they still seem to be in 100% condition minus the white laces getting a little dirty from the snow but other then that so far so good.

Hope to see what everyone else says about the reliability of them!

Nike is what I just purchased (Vapen), and have only had a couple days on them, and I love them, great quality (from what I've noticed from only 2 ride days), and amazing comfort.
I have had ThirtyTwo my whole life of riding, just wanted to try out Nike.. and I am impressed. Was always impressed with ThirtyTwo as well.. I'll stick with these 2 brands forever.

From sources I won't disclose, Lago's Ites had cardboard in them. Just sayin.

fuck Nike. Do you snowboard for Oregon U? Are they for running?
 
Sounds like your 32s did well.

Fully committed snowboard boot company that already has worked for you. By comparison I expect Nikes to disappoint you, the TM-Two is like the greatest all mountain boot ever (in my biased, experienced, correct opinion *grin*).

Get another pair. If you want stiffer try the Prime.

I'm getting a set of Kaiju's from a friend at Nike. I'm wondering if they are as good as advertised.

Thanks for the input! I do like my Thirty Twos, but just like anything, I'd like to try something new. If I didn't, I'd still be rocking everything Burton lol just like Lin Tech, love the board I had from them, but wanted to try NeverSummer and I'm very glad I did!

Who cares?

I have been through now 3 pairs of Nike boots, and they have all been put through 75+ days of HARD riding/hiking.

Besides the fact that they fit my feet, they are decent. My TM-Twos were so soft after about 35 days.

Actually, I have that same pair of TM-twos, and a pair of 3 year old thrashed kaijus. Which are holding up better? Kaijus.

I don't care if a boot is made out paper mache if it works.

Nivek, you just seem like such a hater. At least BA's responses are fucking entertaining.
