Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these boots when I am snowboard instructing. They are softer than the ZF1 in flex. Nike are just a comfortable boot over all. You need to half a size up from shoe size and they run slightly narrow. Good for park, hard to really ride big mtn or crank carves in, a little to much flex. Very comfortable overall I can spend the whole day in them. On days off. A wear the ZF1. Better all mtn boot and you can rip most anything in them.

Simple and to the point, these puppies get the job done. I have had a couple pair of these and on both pair I have had to get the base-plate replaced, it was under warranty so not a big deal just glad I had backups when they were gone for that bit. Also replaced a toe strap a time or two, not the cap just the plastic, also not a big deal. Both pair are 3 years old now and still can ride.

On my second pair, First pair lasted 2 seasons (130+days). I am an ALL Mtn. Rider, not much of a jibber def a jumper and by no means a park rat. I Love this boot, it's the most comfortable boot I have ever had! Fits a half size bigger than shoe size, I wear an 8.5 shoe and have bought both pair of boots in a size 9. I Love the ankle straps on the ZF1's vs. the other Nike boots, I like it tight! I also like the quick release and tightening of the inner and outer laces. Only boot I have bought back to back in 14yrs of riding!

The ear flap pieces fall out often and the audio is horrible. The audio port is super sensitive when it attaches to the helmet and just rolling it around and moving it makes the audio go in and out. I would not waste any money on the audio version of this helmet. Also it fits small i had a RED skycap and then a RED Hifi and in both mediums fit great. The Mutiny fits tight in a medium and sneezes my ears and gives me a headache. Bottom Line fine another helmet!
