It may be the boot you really want, but if it doesn't fit your foot and you still go ahead and pull the trigger on them, and you have a shit time on the hill, don't come back bitching about how shitty Nikes are.

With that said, the Kaijus fit my foot really well, and I love them. Been on them for the past 3 years, and just got a pair of the Gold/Black Kaijus from this year.
I have the same ones. The Gold/Black Kaiju. Was tempted to get this years Black/Gold and wear one of each lol.

But you are absolutely right in your advice. He should definitely get sized up for them before buying them

Ya, any time dude.

That's the Danny Kass Quickstrike model. Last year's design was Nico's, and the year before that was Gigi's. Look them up, they're pretty sick.

They're only going to retail at certain shops though, more of the "core" brick and mortar stores. I think they retail for $380, so 30 bucks more than a regular Kaiju, but if you think they're sick, go try and see if you can find a store to try them on in.

Check out this thread. There's a bunch of Nike info on it. If you click back a few pages, you'll see some people talking about the DK Quickstrike.

I've only ridden Kaijus, but I've never had an issue with my feet being cold. My friend who rides ZF1s and DKs have never complained as well.
Granted, this is in Tahoe where the temperatures aren't THAT extreme, but still.

And like snowporn said, Nikes use a reflective heat liner in all their boots to reflect the heat back towards your foot. Some space age material shit.

Never had a problem with them being cold...found this on the interwebz:

"Nike Vapen snowboard boots use a heat reflective material in both the shell and liner that helps retain heat and keep the cold out. This heat-reflective material is bonded to the midsole to reflect cold from entering through the sole of the boot, and to the liner to keep heat from exiting the boot."
