Pack out like a full size if not more they're fucking crap. Seriously leave the snowboard boots to the professionals Nike has no clue what the fuck they're doing.

I recently bought the vapens and i am a size 10.5 U.S. shoe size. The guy gave me a 11 and it fit perfectly

I bought my zf1's a half size smaller than my Nike SB shoes. They packed out to fit perfectly

I bought my vapens last year. They fit quite tight at the board shop; I got them in size 10, but normally I wear a 11 shoe (Street size.) they packed out perfectly and I loved them; they are comfy for sure, reasonably stiff, but I thought they were great for everything. Yeah, I'm not into Nike that much, but I sure like these boots! Unfortunately, my last snow season was cut short because of concussion/medical reasons, and I only wore them about 10-12 times.

Ok, now i'm a bit confused on who's review i should take more into consideration. The one guy said he bought the same size boots that are the same as his shoe size and they packed out fine. The other person said he got a half size bigger and they fit him perfectly. But now you're saying you got a whole size smaller and they packed out fine. So can anyone clear up a little better if it's better to get the same size as your shoe or go up half a size.

I'm most likely going to have to go try some on, but knowing in advance would help save some time.

You're going to want your boots to fit tight. Your street shoe size might not be a good reference because of brand/style differences. You don't want your foot to be slipping in your boot, but you don't want them to be cutting of your blood circulation either. When you try them on, your toes should touch the end of the boot. In my case, the vapens I got were 1/2 of a size SMALLER than my normal shoes. They do pack out a half inch or so, and it shouldn't take too long for you to break them in. I'm thinking that if you get a size larger, they might pack out too much, and then your foot might start slipping. Good luck, I hope this helps.

In my earlier post, I said I'm a size 11. I change between 10.5 and 11.

I would say definitely a half size smaller. They should fit very snugly at first. I know 4 other people with Nike boots and we all bought a half size down
