Well, you should just buy whichever ones you think look coolest then.

Because the tech isn't much different.

It is going to be a gamble whether or not they fit anyway.

Just do something, Try on the FUL's or RFL's they are very similar to the insanos.

PS. The Kaiju isn't a boa boot. I understand your local shop doesn't have all these boots, But they have some. Go pick some from there if you have no money to waste. That is really your best option. Pick the boot that fits your foot best. Even if it isn't in the list that you have changed every time I've looked at this thread haha.

Alright this is getting ridiculous. You've heard the facts and expert advice from some experienced people, and you refuse to listen to any of it. So just do whatever you want.

I tried on the new DC Status Focus boa, K2 T1 double boa, and the Ride Insano Focus boa. I rode a pair of Ride Insano's for two seasons and loved them.

The K2 T1 double boa was terrible for me -- the second boa locks down a strap over your ankle, forcing the heel down. Sounds good in theory but in practice it was torture.

The DC Status were amazing boots that fit great. The heel cup was very agressive and completely locked down the heel. Problem (for me) was that when you leaned forward, the boot bends along ball of your foot (ier, just behind the toes). I have bad toes and do not want motion there. I tried to talk myself into the boots because they were pretty awesome. But. No dice.

The Ride Insanos are just as good as previous. I love the new velcro liner cinching that replaces the top of the liner strap. It makes getting into the boots a lot easier. Ride Insanos are relatively stiff so know what you are getting.

Btw, REI does free shipping to members

I bought the Ride Insano. Great boot. Stiff. If you do not mind the bend in the front foot, go DC.
