They don't actually run small. They overbuilt their liners cause they're shit and pack out almost a full size.

I literally just read they run small. From this site no less.

After riding my kaiju's this statement has some truth. I was fine the first days of riding but recently I have severe heel lift. And I crank that inner liner down good. But it loosens quite easily.

Anyone have any tips on lacing? I wonder if it's me. Comfort is great but performance has been slipping

Watch out for what bindings you have when you do buy Nike since Nike does not put backstays on their boots...especially some Burton Bindings and I only know from experience and I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Burton. The problem lies with the ridges at the bottom of the high backs that are supposed to grip to the backstays on the heel of the boots. Burtons have backstays as well as DC's on their boots and I'm sure some others do too...Nike, no...and those same ridges tore the shit out of the heels/back of my Nike Zoom DK's, these same comfy boots you are describing that I too love! It's not Burton's fault and at first I didn't know where the rub and wearing down was coming from until a Burton Techy filled me in and was very helpful. I do know the Missions and Cartels have the ridges and the Cartels are what I had, until I sold them and bought the Malavitas = no ridges, problem solved. But Nike boots, yeah, comfy and they just need to put backstays on their boots to protect and prolong their life. I can't wait until 2014 when their BOA line is released.

They run narrow?! You must have small, small feet...I wear a size 10 boot and have to wear Large bindings because of the wide width of my Zoom DK's. I have Forum and Burton Bindings and a Large binding fits a size 10+. A Medium binding on the high end is a size 11 and still would not fit these fat boots lol and I don't have wide feet naturally. Trust me bro, these are some of the widest boots on the market but they are comfy and I love my DK's.

I just got some Kaijus but I think they might be too big. If I slam my heel into the heel cup, my toes are no longer touching the front. If I stand up straight, my toes will touch the front. They fit perfect right now actually. The only issue is that they are brand new and will pack out.

I read that size 8.5 and 8 have the shell size (which is size 8.5), not sure if true or not. I currently have 8.5s, not sure if htere is any point in sizing down to size 8.

I would like to add super feet but I don't see how they will help my boots fit tighter because they are supposed to give arch support. I have really flat feet. The Kaijus insoles are currently giving me arch support (making my feet shorter). If they flatten out and my feet lie flat, then the boots will probably fit me perfectly even after pack out.

Also these boots are too fricking expensive and beautiful to wear which make me anal about getting the puuurfect sizing.

I love the feel of the Kaiju's as well but I am noticing that after packing out I am getting some heel lift. I'm thinking about trying to pull out the liner from my Burton Hail and slide those into my Kaijus. Hoping the switch solves the problem as I didn't get nearly as much lift out of my Hails. I already have the superfeet in.
