Yes that is one big issue for me, contracted? Who cares that is just a way of not admitting or owning up to something you knew was happening, don't give me that "but they didn't know" bullshit and yes it was the past but not that far past. Anyhow wouldn't you prefer buying from a company that is a SNOWBOARDING company? Not a company that needs to get there greedy hands in everything so the A listers of the corp. can stay crazy rich while they source out manufacturing to Indonesia, China, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, Philippines, and Malaysia. Hhhhhhmmm I wonder why they do that... Would it be for cheep underpaid labor? If they were all made in the USA then I wouldn't have such a big problem but when you source out all of your manufacturing well then f#&k you. That about sums up how I feel about nike.

You won't do it.

dont start with that "buy american" crap. even american companies outsource because its cheaper. you would have to boycott almost everything you you only buy american. nike makes an awesome product, if you dont like the way them and every other company in this world does business, go be a hermit and sey up your own shoes and clothes and grow your own crops and be a damn hermit. no matter what you decide, dont get on the internet on a snowboarding forum of all places and vomit out your opinion of how one of the most successful companies on the planet should do things. if you have these particular boots that the OP was wanting reviews of, then feel free to let us know your thoughts on them. if youve never wore em, gtfo so you can spend more time writing hate mail to nike. im sure they would like to hear it about as much as we do.

im not defensive, this just isnt the place. at all. unlike you, i actually want to know peoples opinions on these boots and not the company, because i will look at nike for my next boot choice.

**edit** on a side note, yes i would love to hug it out. /squeeze

I put the 2011 Kaijus on and they are phenomenal. THey feel like a sneaker and the construction is top notch. I rode in 32 Lashed boots and salomon Savages and these could only play second fiddle to the Nikes in terms of comfort. You can get last year's Kaiju for 200 - 245 shipped...They fit true to size with your Nike sneaker and if you want a little more room you can go .5 size larger. You dont have to buy them, but at least try them on....

My Kaiju's are amazing.... Best boot in the biz for me, and most others who actually put them on. They're so much like having a regular shoe on, it's crazy.

That really sounds great, the Nike SB's and Air's has a nice fit on my feet.
