My right foot didn't like the Zoom Force 1's. They were a little too tight and would numb my big and pinky toes. Otherwise they're really comfy boots. The only downside is the laces in the liner.

I just bought some K2 Darkos after demoing them at HCSC. The boa is super convenient for the liner and super comfy and much more low profile than the nikes. I couldnt even fit the nikes into the binding I was using there at HCSC. If you must buy Nikes you should be looking at boots like the Kaiju or Zoom DK.

Are the Kaiju's too soft for an all mountain boot? Also any complaints with cold feet? I read a couple reviews which indicated the Kaiju's don't insulate very well, but these reviews were older so maybe the new ones fixed this problem (if it ever was a problem)?

My k2 Maysis are definitely bigger than the Kaiju's I had.

I just got the Vapen size 10,5 although I wear 10 on sneakers. My left foot is half a size bigger and the 10,5's I got fits my left foot feels snug, and it's little bit looser on the right side. After I break in the boots, if I feel like I have heel lift, I'll just buy some J-L bars or wear some thicker socks to solve that problem.. I won't be riding more than 15 days this season so it shouldn't be a problem...

I was going to get the ZF1's but I didn't want to spend $50 more and the Vapens felt stiff enough for me

Its mainly the toe box on the ZF 1's that are huge. The Kaijus look much more low profile.

I have a few friends that have them and while they say it's not most stiffest boot it still a good all mountain boot.

If you can't ride all mountain while wearing kaijus, you suck and its not the boots fault

I wear my Kaiju EVERYWHERE

Love them. Hands down the best boot I've ever stepped my foot into..... I would love a size 13.5 instead of 13, as I'm a size 14, but I make it work.

LMAO I just swapped my Ions for Kaijus. Way more comfy and finally solid heel lock without the uncomfortable bulges on the sides.
