if you were smart and sized your boots correctly, you would WANT them to pack out and form to your foot. thats what theyre supposed to do.

It sounds like you got them how they felt comfortable in the shop instead of having them a bit snug. Your bad, not nikes.

Yeah, but what I think he is saying is that they packed out MORE than normal. Its always a bit of a gamble when sizing boots normally, heat molding is really the only sway to make sure the botts are going to be perfect.

I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars, no handlebars...

No need to heat mold my kaijus. The heat mold themselves just by wearin them. My feet measure 27cm so i bought 27 means a 9! Really snug, making my toes numb at first, now they're just wonderful! Never be a pussy and buy comfortable boots when first trying them. You'll regret it. It takes a while, but when they feel to become one with your feet after a couple of days you will appreciate it!!

Yeah, well he should have either anticipated that theyll pack out, or had them heat ,olded. I had mine heat molded and theyre perfect.

Any boot will mold themselves by wearing them. The advantage of heat molding is simply to know exactly how they will fit before walking out of the store. Otherwise youre always taking a risk trying to guess how much theyll pack out.

The Kaijus seems a little more narrow. At least in the toe box. I have 10-11 ZF1's and 09-10 Kaijus. I like the liners of the ZF1's about 100x better they just seem way more comfortable. The Kaijus are def quite a bit softer as well. But everyones foot is different so they may work for you.

ccole, since you have both zf1s and kaijus, what is the difference between the zf1's ankle harness and the flywire ankle harness in the kaiju? To me they look the same, at least at first glance at my friend's 09 10 zf1 vs my 10 11 kaiju.

The kaijus have more of a minimalistic ankle harness there is a little less material its kinda cut out between the rings. But in the boot you cant really tell the difference IMO. Overall the ZF1s just fit my foot better i guess seems like the toe box is bigger in the ZF1s.
