    The Vernon concept is cool, but when I saw it in person it looked kinda goofy. Like you would have to be of a certain height or frame to pull it off. I think most people would look better if they wore a real flannel shirt and down vest.

     

    Well made Gore pants for $230.

    word. i think forces are stiffer than ions though. but i think youll like em. they fit more similar than the kaiju too.

    im not too worried about the vest, but what could have helped with the holladay was having a waist cinch, although it was still too wide.

    dont get 09s, but 2010s are good for previous years. reason being is the 2010 both got re-fitted to be true to the length of the size (ie size 9 is actually 27cm inside), they got synthetic shells so they dont break down like the full grain leather did, they got outlast liners, and i think a stronger backstay? the 2011 has full outlast liners too, space blanket lining in the stroble and somehwere else i think, and a stronger backstay still. not stiffer but stronger.

    2010 and 2011 are both really solid boots.

    kaiju is a little softer.

    yeah i ride the forces.. its hard to say how they fit compared to an ion or something. both fit my feet well but the nikes are just better. if i had to say, they might run a LITTLE narrower and hug my foot a little nicer, and they just have a better fit for me overall. i dunno how to compare it really without it just being "they fit my foot like this and this and this"

    i really love the ease of two pulls. and whats more, laces always get wet and soggy when taking them off if you don't make sure to not let them hit the parking lot. but i'm kind of a bitch.

    11s hmmm. Whats sizing like on nikes? Right now Im in a 10.5 slxs - they fit my left foot nicely but are too small for my right. My previous boots were size 11.  
    Also what do they look like?
