I bought the Zoom Force 1 a week ago and they are exactly the same size as my Nike high tops.

It's really a great boot.

I tried on both the Zoom Force 1 and the Kaiju in the same size, the Kaiju felt about a half size smaller.

As I mentioned in another thread, the Kaiju's are a little smaller in length than the Zoom Forces, but are a little wider. I'm normally a 8.5 in boots and dress shoes. But the Kaijus are a little wider than other boots. Not as wide as 32 boots, but a little wider. I ended up getting a size 9 Kaiju and the fit is perfect. I could have fit in a 8.5, but felt it was a little short.

Hmm, I'm not sure what to do size wise on these boots if I decide to get them.

In my old Burton boots I wore a size 10.5, but I wear a size 12 in every other normal shoe I wear ( dress shoes, running shoes )...

So I'm thinking if the Kaiju's fit true to traditional Nike sizing, if I get a 12 they should fit pretty well especially after they pack out? Or should I opt for a 12.5 since it seems the Kaiju's run .5 smaller than the Zoom Force 1's? ( Actually now that I'm looking I don't even think a 12.5 exists...hmm )

I wish I could try these things on locally...

I can answer this, I just tried some 2011 Kaijus in the black and cement color this past weekend and wear mainly Nike tennis shoes and all my casual shoes are 13's. The Kaijus in a size 13 were too small and IMO ran a half size smaller. So now I'm looking for a size 14 which they do make but no one has.

I know they aren't the exact color you said, but they are on sale and they have them in a 14...

I usually wear size 11, but I had to go size 12 on the Kaijus.

Thanks for the link, yeah I seen those the other day and those might be my backup choice. At the moment I have a shop up in Tahoe that has told me they're getting a 14 today or tomorrow in the black/cement color. I sure hope so, since I seen them in person and tried them on I had to get them.
