shirtless I know :p I didn't get them heat molded but I'm wearing them all day today so it should be good. The asshole at buckmans told me repeatedly they couldn't get heatmolded and I looked at the tag after I left and it said heat moldable :mad:

Nice colorway!

Really - they told you that at Buckman's? When I was looking for boots there & tried the Baxa they were sure to say they were heat-moldable.

The guy who originally helped me out was an asshole :thumbsdown: I met a kid there though who was really cool and helped me out a lot and sized my foot and told me about the boot. I ran back in after buying them and the asshole was like "liek neoooooo tey arnt da heet moldables dood" and I was all like "liek otes kayyy dood."
Those are sick i like those. How much were they if you dont mind me asking?
They retail for 250 but there was a 30 percent off sale in store. Online they have them for 200 bucks. 175 plus tax is what I paid.

I have thirtytwo prions ATM, or at least that's what I started with and have been using, but I also tried thirtytwo lashed and k2 ti's, plus several other highend and midrange boots. I have EXTREMELY wide feet and I feel like these fit perfect. the lashed and ti's gave shitty pressure points along the ankle and top of foot for me. I wear a 10-11 in shoes, my foot is a 9-9 1/2, and I wear a 9. The foot that is 9 1/2 was a little snug but after wearing them for a day around the house, that pressure went away.

I got Kaiju's too, and feel like they are slightly too thin up front. I have a wide fore foot, and skinny ankles. Maybe I should try the ZF1s I hear they are a little wider. But I'm going to wear my shoes around the house some more to see if they soften up.

Yeah walk around the house a lot. I walked around and cleaned my room for about 1 1/2 hours and wore them for like 8 hours on top of that. They feel awesome now. They took about 4 or 5 hours to start fitting better.

Break them in a bit and get different insoles. I wore them with the stock insoles for two days and my toes were pretty sore at the end of the day. I put in the Remind insoles i had in my old boots and now i have zero pain or discomfort.

I will never buy ANY Nike snowboard or skateboard product. They refused to support our sports until they grow to a huge level. They only started supporting our sport once they could make millions off of them. They wouldnt help skateboarders or snowboarders in the beginning so I refuse to support them.
