I dont wear my sneakers as tight as my snowboarding boots obviously. My nike free runs are 12.5 and my lunarendors are a 12

Im willing to bet if i got the free runs in a 12 they probably fit the same as my lunarendors.

my last pair of boots were k2's and i got them in a 11.5 and they fit closer to the front of my toes than the lunarendors

The toe box felt very slightly wider (which is all I needed) around the pads of my toes. I do remember it very slightly being taller also. I wouldn't base your decision on this though because it was very slight.

The arch of the foot seemed a little bit forward(towards the toes) which felt more comfortable to me (could be because the canting)

The lunarendors were more stiff which may be a good reason to switch if your looking for a stiff boot

Soul06 I rock the Kaijus. I free ride. They are great boots. But if you want stiffer the lunarendors do have those plastic.....whatever they are called....that add stiffness to the boot

tonicusa Don't let the flex fool you, the Kaiju can easily handle any free riding you throw at it. Vermont, Maine, Utah, Colorado, pipe, park, steeps. I don't know about bigger terrain like AK etc but Nicolas Muller rides them all over the world. However if you "prefer" the feel of a stiffer boot the Ion is a click or two stiffer. But I find my Kaiju do everything just as well as my Ions and leave me feeling a little more mobile and unrestricted in my movements.

Soawsome Granted I always tried on boots for all mountain and freeriding and just tried the kaijus based on good reviews but they were def the softest boots I've ever tried on

I wouldn't say pretty stiff. Mine were a little less than medium after break in. I felt them 4 or 4.5 on a 10th scale.
