I wear US size 13 and picked up a pair of 13 AF1 this season.

Perfect fit and no need to heat mold the liner. They really lived up to the hype.

For you Nike boot owners, can you comment on how warm they are?

Never had a problem with them being cold...found this on the interwebz:

"Nike Vapen snowboard boots use a heat reflective material in both the shell and liner that helps retain heat and keep the cold out. This heat-reflective material is bonded to the midsole to reflect cold from entering through the sole of the boot, and to the liner to keep heat from exiting the boot."

I've only ridden Kaijus, but I've never had an issue with my feet being cold. My friend who rides ZF1s and DKs have never complained as well.
Granted, this is in Tahoe where the temperatures aren't THAT extreme, but still.

And like snowporn said, Nikes use a reflective heat liner in all their boots to reflect the heat back towards your foot. Some space age material shit.

Ya, any time dude.

That's the Danny Kass Quickstrike model. Last year's design was Nico's, and the year before that was Gigi's. Look them up, they're pretty sick.

They're only going to retail at certain shops though, more of the "core" brick and mortar stores. I think they retail for $380, so 30 bucks more than a regular Kaiju, but if you think they're sick, go try and see if you can find a store to try them on in.

Check out this thread. There's a bunch of Nike info on it. If you click back a few pages, you'll see some people talking about the DK Quickstrike.
