Default Boots like Burton Ambush or Nike Ites...

I am looking for new boots and money is not an issue.
I am an intermediate All-Mountain Rider
2013 Burton Custom Flying V with Burton Malavita Bindings.

I tried on a few K2's, DG's, Burtons at a local shop and liked the feel of the Burton Ambush the best. (Wow that is the most comfortable Boot I ever tried on)

I really want to wait on my purchase until I try these NEW Nike Ites. (Local shop does not carry Nike)

So my question is....
Does anybody have any real experience riding the Nike Ites?
If i liked the Ambush, what else should I consider?
Is there any reason I should stay away from the Burton Ambush?

Thanks SnowboardingForum.com for this great forum!!!
Jason

So, today I went ahead and purchased the Nike Ites in black. I also have the Kaiju. I will compare the Ites to those. The liner strap is a little bigger. Sole of shoe is exactly the same. The Ites without any stiffness bars are exactly the same boot IMO. With the siffest bar in the Ites, they feel similar to the Burton Driver X with out their stiffness piece. I will admit this boot is not as stiff as I thought before I tried it on. What I like about this boot is you only need one boot. The stiffness bars really do work. Now I can have one boot for freestyle and freeride. Just thought I would share.

Hmmm, interesting. You should take some pictures of the boot with the stiffness bars and post them up. Those boots seem pretty nice but they're definitely not cheap.

Google images can take better pics than me. I did find it interesting that these boots look as good in person as in the pictures.

$400ish I think there are two versions of the ites and one is more but i could be mistaken, I don't have much interest in nike boots.

It's a secondary detail but I way prefer this year's kaiju colourways to the ites. Could be one of those "see them in person" things.

I might be tempted next season if I find I want a stiffer boot after trying some stiffer boards this season.

Got em, rode em, love them. Took out the stiffening bar things, but will probably throw them back in at some point.
