I ride 2009 Burton rulers. Its a mid stiff boot. Great for all mountain riding. I love the quick lace system, I hate laces. In terms of comfort I can't really say much as I had to install my own j bars and insoles to fit my foot perfectly. No heel lift or pain. However if I crank my bindings down tight the strap will make a dent into the boot.

I may upgrade to newer rulers or try a different brand. Not many other brands to try on in my area.

Coming from a shop employee... (I hope you're not planning this). Don't just use your local shop's time sizing your foot and trying on boots. To just go order online. Its like the biggest insult to us. At least be purchasing some of your gear there bindings or board or Boots
As for Nike. Their boots stiffness and pricing aren't parallel. Vapens. Kaijus zf1. ITES.(variable.). Stiffness. Low to high

Vapen zf1 kaiju ites. Prices.low to high

Kaijus are closest to a mid flex.

I worked at a shop for a number of years and I didn't find it insulting unless a customer was implying that he was going to buy a boot with us, tries on every boot in the store, and then walks away.

It's not like shop employees make commission.

If a customer comes up and is like, "hey, I know exactly what I want, let me try on these specific sizes of these specific models, you don't need to sit here and watch me do it unless you really want to," it's whatever.

Welcome to the life of working at any retail store in 2012. You can blame the internet for that.

Shop ettiquette is not being a douche, and then you get the "cool guy discount."

DKs, actually. They're stiffer than the Kaijus, similar fit though.
