Closest Burton boot to the Kaiju?
In terms of fit, comfort and flex.

I love my nikes but can't get my size in them :( I've already had some work do by the boot fitter but still too loose.

I know I can get my size in burton sizing, so I'm looking to bite the bullet and switch before my next trip.

Not really limited by budget.

Some people seem to suggest the Ion but the stiffness rating seems higher.
Any help gratefully received. Thx

The Ion, as you have already mentioned, is the closest comparison I've heard of from every site I've visited

I have the ION for 3 seasons ( 20 days a season ) and they arent as stiff as they say in the burton site.

I tried the kaiju at a store and walked about 10 minutes... They seem similar in flex , and the kaiju were super confy... like a glove.

I use 10.5 ions but i think i can use 10. the kaiju were 10:D

hoping to get kaiju to try yhem and sell the ion. Just because i like tradicional laces

Hails, are the correct answer. traditional laces.

That answer is about as incorrect as you can get. I have the Hails. The Kaiju are definitely stiffer.
The traditional laces are irrelevant as there are a number of Burton boots with laces
