Does that mean I should size up to a 10 to get the width I need?

What if you wear your shoes .5 bigger, I wear mine 1 size bigger, Steve wears his 2 sizes bigger? Would you still recommend all of us to size up?
read back at my posts.. i never recommended anything to anyone. all i said was i wear a size 7 sneaker and went with a 7.5 boot, and many others had said the same thing about getting a bigger size boot than sneaker.

I would recommend you finding a store that carries them and trying every size they have instead of going back and fourth on a forum

You were implying that Nike Boots run smaller then Nike sneakers. But if you were to actually measure the interior of the boot, you would find that they are the same size. (length wise). I'm glad you found a good fitting boot though.

What I am trying to tell people is that the only way to get a proper fitting boot is to go to the store and try them on. If online is your only choice, you're shooting in the dark.

If I had bought all the boots I tried online, I probably would have spend $300 just on the return shipping costs.

Hey all, I think I should have posted this here as this thread is more fitting of my question. Hope you don't mind but I'm just going to paste my previous post here.

To all Kaiju riders,

Have your boots held up well? Any problems with build quality? How is the fit after months of riding?

Last thing, most boots nowadays seem to have some sort of heel lift prevention feature, mostly in the form of bulges inside the liner around the ankle. Often those bulges come in contact with my ankle bones and cause tremendous pain, but ThirtyTwo boots haven't given me that problem probably because they don't really have those bulges and it's a moldable liner (Northwave isn't bad either even with the bulges).

Do Nike Kaijus have those bulges?

Obviously the best route is to try them on but unfortunately that's not an option so I may have to go the remote order (and worst case scenerio, return) route.

Anyway yeah, please let me know!

all this sizing is pretty weird and confusing!

i went to a shop and originally wanted to try out the zoom f1 and the kaijus.

i wear a lot of nike sneakers. mostly blazers and airmax. back in the days i just bought us size 10, but then i figured out that nike in 9.5 fit a lot better. so right now i have like 5 pairs of nike blazers in 9.5 a few air max in 9.5 and even 2 pairs (blazer and sweet classics) in 9 which are pretty snug but after wearing them a bit they became pretty comfortable. my foot measures pretty much 27cm.

ok, back to the boots. since it's the only shop in town which sells nike boots the ran out of sizes. all they had left was a 9.5 zoom f1 and a 10 kaiju.

so i tried on the zoom f1 in 9.5 and they had a good fit. my toes touched the front and they felt ok and snug but i wanted to try a 9 which they didn't have. the shop assistant wore nike dunks in size 9.5 (which is like i told u exactly what I'm wearing). he told me that 9 would be too small and he had himself the danny kass in 9.5 and the zoom f1 in 9.5 and they were perfect. now he's on kaijus and he originally went with 9.5 but they were way too small since they run smaller so he had to go with 10.

the conclusion was that i just tried the zoom f1 unfortunately in only 9.5.

since i really want a awesome fitting snug boot i wanted to try out the kaijus. but the only way to get them was the internet.

so i really wasn't sure which size to order, since a few people say they run small: 9 or 9.5 or 10??

i really thought about it a lot, read like every thread in every forum in the internet and i pulled the trigger on size 9 since they are mondo 27 and my feet are 27cm.

they arrived a week ago and i stepped in and i thought " awesome!!!!!!! that is exactly how i like my boots to fit". i wore them in the house for like 4 hours and my feet felt to fall asleep and my toes curved a bit. yeah it was kinda uncomfortable but - please - you spend a lot of time in them, you're shredding slopes, you'll wear them for days weeks!! (total time) they WILL pack out and feel awesome within a few time.

until today i wore them in the house for like 8 hours i think. i'm wearing them right now and i can say they feel superb!! they fit perfectly right now. snug, comfortable, warm, my toes don't curve anymore. just awesome. couldn't be better. i even could imagine wearing them in 8.5. would be a tough time the first days, but it's definitely doable. but i think 9 is the perfect size for me!! now i know that i wouldn't be happy with 9.5 kaijus let alone with 10!!

tomorrow first time shreddin!!! yeah

just some words from me .....

good luck finding the right size for you!!

lol, so we're copying and pasting everyone's previous posts now?

I just received my Nike Zoom Force 1's today in size 11. Initial impressions were that they were indeed more narrow than my Burton AWOL's, but my toes were now just barely touching the end of the liner instead of curling a bit when I walked in my Burton's. My AWOL's are 10.5. If I had gotten them in 11's they might have fit, but there is no way they would be as comfortable as what I'm experienceing now! The Zoom's live up to the reputation that Nike has earned for themselves and their boots... these have to be the most comfortable snowboard boots I have ever put on! I wore them for a couple of hours today, and the narrowness of the sole I mentioned before became unnoticable. I sometimes wear wide duty boots, but generally I wear a normal size 11 in every other shoe or boot I purchase. I miss having the J bar to hold my heel in place, but if I tighten the inner liner properly I have yet to experience any overly excessive heel lift.

So far, these boots are very much a win for me. I plan on breaking them in around the house some more, then getting them heat molded, and possibly adding a Superfeet footbed (need to get to a shop with the different colors available and try them out, see what works for me). I also strapped into my board today and in my Rome 390's (L/XL) and they fit fantastically, and the added stiffness and response of these boots is very welcome. Thats also something I was looking for when I stepped up to these!

If you have'nt at least tried on a pair of Nike boots yet, your missing out! They don't fit everyone, but if they fit you, you won't be dissapointed.
