I measure a 8.5 on the brannock device and picked up a pair of 9 Kaijus. Actually I'm a tad over 8.5, but smaller than 9. But that's only length. If I remember right, you have Burton SL boots. I'm not too familiar with those but believe they are pretty stiff. Other than hurting your feet, do you like the stiffness? Do you know why they hurt? Is it too narrow? If you like that stiffness, I would get the Nike Zoom Force. However, if you think the SL is too narrow then I think the Kaijus will be a good fit. I could have fit into the 8.5 Kaiju too, but felt my toes were a tad to crunched. If you're a little over a 9 on the brannock device, I would get the 9.5.

with the SL-8s it was stiff and the stiffness was fine. i rocked a 9.5 in them. for some reason the toe box area would just get cut off from circulation and my foot would swell and hurt and i would laways have to take a break midday. i dont think it was the width. it may have been that i was tying them too tight cuz i had heel slippage due to packing out.

awesome VERY helpful dude appreciate it

Nike Kaiju's = like vagina for your feet

I tried the Zoom forces and Kaiju's. went with the Kaiju's rode on em for the first time today and these are the most comfy boots ive owned.

I am inclined to agree with you. I have only tried them on but that felt amazing. I might have to pick up a pair now

People don't normally wear sneakers the same way they wear boots. Most people wear their sneakers bigger than their actual foot size. What size are your feet when you measure them against the wall or with the use of a brannock device?

It is unlikely that boots would be larger than your sneakers.

Do the 7.5 ZF fit your feet?

So I just pulled the trigger on some Zoom Force 1's today, size 11, which is what I wear in all my normal shoes/boots. I had been wearing Burton AWOL's in size 10.5, but I was having issues with my toes going to sleep, and my right foot long toe was going numb for weeks after wearing them. Hopefully the 11's fit me well, as I had to order them. No shops around here stock Nike boots, unfortunately.

I'll post up my thoughts and how they compare once I get them.
