Nike Zoom Force 1 x BOA

I just picked up these bad boys at the 50% off sale at Sport Chalet (still going on by the way). After taxes, it came out to around $162, not bad considering these are $310 retail. Anyone have these?

I tried on these, the Nike Vapens, and the Nike Kaiju. I liked all 3, but these were the only ones with double BOAs, even though I liked the original lacing on the Vapens and Kaijus. The Kaijus were tempting at $180 but I thought that I'd have an easier time on the mountain with the BOA system. I currently have Vans Encore with a single BOA, so these are a definite upgrade. I might get a pair of either regular lacing or speed laces next time.

The boot is a medium flex and fits true to size. I'm a sz9 in Nike shoes and this fit perfect. I just need to break these in.

Any feedback from you guys?

Do they fit your foot and are comfortable?

That's all the feedback you need.

Yes, they fit great with no heel lift. I just want to see other's perspectives. I can't wait to hit the mountain in these.

Other peoples' perspectives won't necessarily mean shit, since everyone's foot is completely different.

FWIW, these were one of the top selling boots at both shops I've worked at. Not sure whether that's all hype marketing or what, but they sold well and people seem to like them. I have a couple friends in the ZF1 (traditional laces) and they enjoy them. Too stiff for me personally, I ride the Kaijus.

I really wanted the Kaijus but went with the BOA system. How are the laces with the Kaijus? I wanted to try a lace system but am so used to BOAs.

They're fine? They're standard laces.

I don't like or trust the BOA system, so I have and always will be a traditional lace guy.

One of the worst boa lace routings ive seen. That boot blows out at the ankle just sitting on the shelf. I feel bad for any shop who's number one boot is this POS. If it fits your foot best, great, but then you only tried on swooshes from what you've told us so you dont actually know. I do hundreds of boot fits a year, I rarely sold a Nike on purpose when I did sell them.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Hmmm... I can always still return this. I only listed the Nike ones I tried, but tried some from Thirty Two and Burton and this fit me the best. I've been reading the online reviews and most of them were great reviews.
