Default Nike Kaiju or 686 New Balance boots question

Has anybody used either of these boots?
I'm more interested in the 686 boots, they utilize the Boa system,
and New Balance shoe tech.

Not totally relevant, but I tried on the Nike Zoom Force 1 last year, and it was surprisingly comfortable and well made for a first year entry. I would expect no less from the Kaiju this year.

That NBx686 boot is really interesting. Too bad no local shop I know of carries it, so I can't try it on. I would never buy boots without trying them on first.

Update-
I just picked up a pair of the 686 New Balance boots, from my local shop.
They feel amazing. Apparently the place I got them is one of only 5 in California that carries them.
I tried on a couple other boots Burton SLX, and some others.
The New Balance felt the best by far.
Very sucked down feel around the heel.
They are rated at 7/10 stiffness.
