Do you snowboard at Big Bear? I know Blauer's (local board shop) has em for sure. That's actually where I tried it on last season, and then I bought it online (Exit Real World) when then had a end of season 50% off sale.

Yes I did. Just went on Saturday. And wouldn't you know it, I decided to check ... after I was half way down the 38. Yeah smart move I know. But I was beat by then so it slipped my mind (oh and wanting to get started on our 2.75 hour drive).

The Prodigy, no I haven't. I only checked the website and the only dealer they had listed was Avalanche in El Cajon, which doesn't have any yet.Thanks I'll check them out.

EDIT: I just searched for tactics in fashion valley, but don't see anything. There is a "Backshop" in the mall however. The only Tactics I turned up was in Oregon

I now have 10 days on my Kaijus. I was afraid b/c some people said they downsized and it was perfect, others said they ran small. But I went with my exact foot size (measured on those standard scales) of 27 and it was perfect. In fact, I might be able to fit into a 26.5 after the break-in period.

Often boots don't get uncomfortable for me until after the 10 day mark, but so far (knock on wood) these are the most comfortable I've had.

I have skinny feet with ankle bones that protude, and yet the ankle bulges don't kill my feet. They feel great. No heel lift either.

I don't think the boardshop in Fashion Valley is there either. Last time I saw that seasonal shop was 2 seasons ago (got bindings and goggles there in 09 I think). But yeah, try the shops next time you head up to Bear.

i just bought the kaiju and wow these are pimpin' i tried on rulers, hails, 32 lashed, forum and vans nothing came close to the overall comfort!! rulers did feel good but man kaiju's are the shit, i tried on the zoom's but didnt like the stiffness but they were comfortable but the feel is amazing and the flex is perfect, just try em and buy em! fuck the cost these are worth every penny!!

Went to Identity in Orange County today, nothing smaller than 9.5. Found one Danny Kass pair at Liberty in Brea, was 1/2 size too big. Felt real snug and tight, but my toes weren't touching the end, and that corresponded with my ghetto mondo measurement (measuring tape converted to MM). So I'm either stuck buying blind on the net or waiting until next season ... I'm going to roll the dice on ebay buying blind. My current boots suck so much I have to or just tough it out for the next couple of months ...

Decisions decisions. Seeing Nike has a new boot next season (Vapens)

Alpine Daily Drops: New Nike Snowboard Boots for 2012
The boots in those pics dont really look much different then the Zooms Nike has out now. I was hoping to see some newer style of the Kaijus
