Default Nike zoom force 1 vs vapen

Hi everyone,

I have tried on the size 12 vapens and I am going to be trying on the zoom force 1s in the next couple days. I wanted to know what you guys' opinions on these two boots were? I'm an all mountain rider on a lib attack banana and soon to be probably flux DMCC bindings (posted in the bindings section if anybody has feedback about the bindings its greatly appreciated!) I'm looking for quality performance boots.. I understand a lot of people have beef with nike.. but I'm a ball player.. always worn nike, never will wear adidas or another brand, so if you understand where I'm coming from.. I understand these boots aren't made for basketball lol but I really can't resist trying out some nikes.

Btw, just wanted some clarification.. the size 12 fits reaaaally snug, everything feels okay except my toes could possibly be hitting the front of the boot a little too much but the 13 is probably a lil too big and I don't wanna risk them packing out on top of being roomy already and becoming floppy.. so the general suggestion is to tough it out on the 12 for a bit till they pack out.. correct?

Any feedback about these force 1s or vapens is greatly appreciated! Thank you ahead of time!

I got some Vapens this season and I like them. i've heard complaints about Nike boots getting soft really easily, but mine haven't. I only have ~20 days on them, but they still feel brand new.

The vapens are going to be a bit softer. I recent got some nike dkqs'. Quite a bit more support if your not going the be shredding rails all day. Sold my vapens immediately after.

I mostly stick to groomer with a bit of time in the park on jumps. I just tried on the zf1's and they weren't as comfortable as the Vapens.

I know the vapens have a tempting price. That's what lured me. But I weigh 190. And could flex them pretty good. For all mountain riding its nice to be able to let your knees loose and have the boot support you back. I'd look into the dks or zf1s. Unless you're a little guy

When people don't like a product for whatever reason or have had one bad experience they tend to over exaggerate. Some of the exaggerations are beyond ridiculous
