It's best to try them on at the store. I know that 10's will be too big for you though. I would get either a 9 or 9.5.

For reference, I wear 8.5 dress shoes and my previous boots were 8.5. All boots I try on are 8.5. With the Kaiju's the 8.5's were a little too short in length for me. The 9's were perfect.

i currently have a pair of burton boots in 9.5 that fit fine. i guess i should go 9.5 based on what your sizing. do burtons run similar to nike? probably a bad/stupid question

For me, the Burtons were too narrow. So the Nike Kaiju might be too wide for you. Which Burton did you have? I found that the Nike Zoom Force fit similar to the Burton Ruler. Although in the Ruler, I have a lot more heel lift.

Are you looking for something that's stiffer or softer? If you want stiffer, get the Nike Zoom Force. The Kaijus are Nike's softest flexing boot. They're not soft, but they're not stiff. I really like my Kaijus and can't imagine a better fitting boot for me. I have about 12 days in them so far.

any major differences between the new kaijus and last years?

they have the stone/orange blaze/purple from 09/10 on ebay for really cheap. not sure its worth getting the 10/11 pair for 100+ price difference

Not much changed in this year's boots to my knowledge. I think this year's boot has a different outlast liner, making it a little warmer, but don't think it's too different.

Check this site out, Nike | from SolsticeSupply.com on Sale

I had size 10 Burton Jeremy Jones and just got size 10 ZF1's. The JJ's are obviously a lot softer than the ZF1's but i believe the JJ's are also a little wider. Both fit my feet fairly well. Just put a pair of the green superfeet in my ZF1's and just standing in them feel a lot better. I also had my ZF1's heat molded which made them pack out a lot so im banking on the superfeet helping out.
