Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There is nothing more important to your snowboard setup than your boots. Comfortable and warm feet allow you to ride longer and harder. The Nike Kaiju is one the most comfortable boots out there. Its super lightweight and looks good. These run a little on the softer side and thus are the park riders favorite in the Nike line. The internal lacing keeps your foot snugly into the heel. The liner is heat-moldable and super cush. The outsole provides plenty of traction on slippery surfaces. I'd recommend these boots to anyone looking for a medium/soft boot that really excels in the park (thanks to flex and cushioning) but will still perform great all over the mountain.

If I had to choose one word to describe the Nitro Phantom binding, it would simply be ?amazing.? The Phantoms are the perfect medium stiffness binding. Featuring canted foot beds that take pressure off of your knees and airbags that offer supreme cushioning, the Phantoms are Cadillacs for your feet. The taller highback offers unbeatable response and the buckles release smoother than butter. I would recommend this to everyone from the seasoned park ripper to the all mountain destroyer. The Phantom does it all, and does it all in comfort.

Fit: True to size

I do a lot of trail running, generally between 15-30 miles at a time. These socks are really good and I never get any blisters. The breathe really well. However, I noticed when I am doing a lot of climbing up inclines, they start to fall down. A quick adjustment fixes the issue, but it can be cumbersome. However, if I am running relatively flat trails, I see no issues. I prefer the Injinji Trail sock slightly more but both are good.
