Top of the line boots.

If they feel comfy on your foot, buy them

I was feeling the Kaiju the very first time I tried em on....was skeptical at first so I paused on it...then ended up buying them the following day..(yeah short pause:laugh:). I been riding with them for about a month now.

All Mountain rider
*Previous and only boot: Salomon Solace 09
Bindings: 09 Union Force

Boot Stiffness: I'd say 8ish/10( The Zoom Force 1 are less stiff)

Super light (like the Nike Prestos of Snowboard Boots)
Nice tight fit- Heel pocket holds down nice:thumbsup:, inner lace+velcro strap, and outter lace
Real low profile- I can feel every little pebble on the ground. Thats new for me:dunno:

A bit pricey
Laces...coming from speed lace, but im getting used to it

Honestly, I'd say try em before you buy em imo. I was laughing while trying these on because the feeling of the fit was unreal to me. Then I had the Rep bring out a few pairs of different boots just to make sure I wasn't suffering from "wow" syndrome since my last pair of boots sucked and had a heel lift of size 10 feet in a 11 shoe. So I tried the RIDE Ful, Burton Jeremy, and some others that I cant remember. They were all good boots, but the feel just wasn't there.

Some may disagree but I think Nike did a good job. Im looking forward to see what they drop next. Hope this helps:thumbsup:

just bought a pair of the kaiju models last night! many people have said that this is supposed to be a stiffer boot but it seems pretty soft to me. i haven't ridden it yet but they feel just a bit stiffer than my salomon f20's. also, if u check them out at tactics they have a video of the nike rep saying this boot is supposed to be a softer boot but with all the high end tech in it. will give review after a couple rides

Just picked up a pair of Kaiju myself

Super super super comfy so far.... Just hope they hold up.

Just know that the Nike boots are a tight fit from heel to toe, so it's for narrow feet.

I also tried on the 2011 Kaiju boot and was also blown away at how comfy they felt and how much heel support they have. I didn't purchase them as I was a bit iffy on the price.

Where are you guy's buying your Kaiju's from and how much are you paying if you don't mind me asking?

I have a wide foot and they fit just fine.... It's more that they're just snug and form fitting I think.

I went from Vans Cirro to the Nike and the Nike is WAY more comfortable and the Cirro is a sweet boot.

I'm just done with speed laces/BOA and the pressure points

just bought zoom force 1 DKYS (USA/Canada double tongues) from ebay for 160, i tried the regular zoom force 1's in stores and they were super comfortable and soft i just hope they dont get any softer or it might be too soft.
