nike snowboarding???

I was informed like a year that nike was going to enter the snowboarding world. Then a few months ago i started seeing the promos. what you guys think about the AIR FORCES. I feel like they wont be to confy. How good can they possibly be??? they look kinda dope, but i feel like its also selling out...... They are also doing pants..... WHAT YOU GUYS THINK? HAVE YOU HEARD ANYTHING? HOW MUCH?

You feel like they wont be comfy? Really? what part of you feels this? your feet? please expand on WHY. I find alot of their shoes comfy, why wont their boots be?

How good can they be? as good as they make them. They could be the best or they could be the worst, how do i answer this? im sure it'll take a few years for them to come right but im sure they will get it right. It will also depend on your foot shape and size.

In my opinion they look crap, although i can see them being all the rage in the 12-18 year old crowd that sits at the top of the park. They look like an airforce version of those super high top chucks that some goth chicks wear.

They just seem really heavy. It seems like they just put money into what looks good not its use.Which makes them more money. But i dont know much about them thats why i was asking. An T.J. haha thats exactly what i was thinking to, about the jersey wearing guys. Everyone has there prefrence and i tend to like the nike dunks, which is what the boot is modeled after but not in high top form. nzboardlife compared them to the high top converse yet they look nothing like chuck taylors that goths wear.

Check out Shred Betties: Women's Snowboarding Magazine in the gear section I wrote a review of them from when I first had interaction at SIA. Frankly I don't think they have it dialed this year.

i compared them to chuck taylors in the sense that they look like stupid mockeries of a good shoe, not to say they looked exactly like them... Do you not understand?

heh i think they look kinda cool. i'd say give them a couple years and they will be pretty comfy, i love my p-rods right now. i'd probably throw down on another pair of boots i know are legit rather than just get them cuz they look cool.
