The Nike Zoom Force 1 snowboard boot (ZF-1 snowboard boot) brings a iconic Nike shoe onto the snow. Born of premium leather and a super cush Zoom Air Nike heel, this boot has a middle of the road flex. A traditional lacing system up front topped off with the Nike Air Force 1''s classic power strap up top for added support and a heat-reflective layer in both shell and liner keep you toasted on the slopes. DO THE ZF1!
Over the years I have tried many different boots from many different companies until I came to the ZF1. These are the stiffest boots that Nike makes compared to the Kaiju, Vapen, and DK. I have about 50 days on these boots and they still look brand new. The inner lacing system takes a little getting use to but I prefer it over the traditional thin lacing that most companies have. The overall fit on this boot is true-to-size. The outlast space blanket inner keeps your foot warm when its cold and cools your feet when they get too hot.
I purchased these on-line at a great value primarily going off of other Rider Reviews! I will say that had these boots fit, I would be riding this coming season. Unfortunately, if you ar elike me and have an extremely wide foot...do not look into these. The profile is very narrow. It is truly unfortunate because I could tell from the moment I put them on that these are one of the finer made boots I've tried. I rated this boot a 5 even though it is not for me because for those with normal feet, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these boots. For those wondering why I wouldn't wait for them to pack out...there is no way I could wear this boot for more than a couple of minutes without feeling extreme pain. Please realize this is only due to the width and not the interior design, which is one of the best made boots out there. The materials, flex and features is phenominal. The only downfall I found was even though the boot was very narrow, the heel had considerable slippage. Overall, an excellent boot and if Nike ever decided to widen the profile of their boots (and shoes for that matter) I would buy again in a heartbeat
All around great boot. rode them all last season and plan to do the same again this year. I live in whistler so i got over 120 days of hard shredding last year in these boots and theyre still in near perfect condition. They tend to be very stiff when first worn and then as they are gradually molded to your feet, its super hard to find anything else to complain about. They fit great, they stay warm, dry, look sexy and I highly recommend them. Nike killed it...as always
Ok so this is my review for the Nike Zoom Force 1 boots. i have the 2011's and not much has changed between the 2011's and 2012's. I found this to be the best boot I have ever ridden. They looked good and felt good too. They were a little tough to get on and off for a few days, but broken in these are the best boots. I rode 90+ days on these boots last year and rode them the whole season. I rode them in powder at Park City and rode them in the park all over the midwest. The boots are really comfy and have good flex to them. I have little to no complaints about the boots except for the fact that towards the end of the year my boot laces started to break. They give you an extra set of laces, so this was no real problem. Lastly on the outside of the boot by the nike logo where your boot comes in contact with your binding it started to rip through the first layer of boot, but that is just basic wear and tear through out the season
I have ridden these boots about 150days and I can't find a better boot for my foot. I have super feet footbeds in them and they rock. As stated previously the first 10 days was a little uncomfortable but after they packed in a bit the fit was perfect. I highly recommend these boots to anyone with a narrower foot
I rode these boots last season and they worked out pretty great. The only thing I would say about these is they take a good amount of time to put on and one of the laces ripped. Other than that they're great boots
