Default Nike Boots Are the SHIIIIIT!!!!

So I recently went up to whistler and got to test out a pair of Nike Zoom DKs

Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomgawd.

I've rocked 32 for a bit under a decade and have recently been looking for a change. I was intrigued by the Deeluxe line, and specifically the street.

Nike wasn't honestly even on my radar.

The Zoom DKs were SO light, SO warm, and just FELT SO GOOD!!
Words don't do it justice. That pinch in the heel, that robust snug fit, HOW F*KING LIGHT THESE GUYS WERE...



Seriously, try them on...

Anyways...
Now I'm faced with a dilemma
Primarily a park/urban rider, I was wondering.
Anyone have any experience with The DK, The Kaiju, and the Force 1's?

College kid on a budget, I'm thinking the Force 1's, being Jed Anderson's boot, would perform just as well, despite being the lower price point...
Would I be right?

Help me ouuuuut

They all get pretty mush after about 15 days.

My buddy, who just began riding the DK's at the beginning of this season, is telling me the same.

Saucy. I've heard nothing but good things from the shop homies.
It's not like they're on commission, either...

Also, Jed Anderson... Really?

I was like you, loving the ZF1's when I first got them. Perfect fit and everything.

Then they packed out, and heel lift, and all sorts of sloppiness started happening.

Now I replaced them with Burton Imperials. Nikes are good initially, but the love gets lost after a while.

Also, after going with speed zone laces I'm never going back to standard laces. Soooo much faster getting from the parking lot to the chair lift... don't know why i took so long to switch over.

Glad you enjoy the Nike's though.

Sounds like you need to get off Jed Anderson's nuts.....Apparently his sponsorship was money well spent by Nike.

That's kind of what a sponsorship is for. If it's good enough for the pros then it's good enough for me sort of mentality. Where'd you learn business? They don't just give anyone decent boots because they're good. Other brands, the term is actually "brand ambassador"
So I'm not on Jed Andersons nuts. I just figure if a kid with game like that can use these boots then they should be fit for me.
Guess I'm wrong.

You are right in that they'd love you to think that. The reality is these gays can strap on an ironing board with hardboots and still make fools out of us. These guys by and large sign for the $ not because of any true belief in the product.
