Müller Nike Zoom Kaiju boot

I'm pumped to see Nike incorporating Recycled PET bottle synthetic leather and a new EPM(environmentally preferred material) liner lining into the Müller Nike Zoom Kaiju boot! Now these aren't your typical Kaiju boots. Nico has had his hand in these since the idea was put on the table. Along with Nike Snowboarding, artist ITES and Nico set out to create one unique looking boot that sports all the Kaiju features that keep Nico doing what he does. As one of the best snowboarders out there, one might say these could be one of the best boots as well.

Müller / Nike Zoom Kaiju Features: Check it out on nikesnowboarding.com
  • TPU backstay for protection and high rebound flex.
  • Articulating Flywire Cuff for increased heel hold while decreasing bulk around ankle.

Offered in a limited run from Nike Snowboarding you can't just snag a pair of these boots off of the internet. You have to find a local Nike Snowboarding retailer lucky enough to carry them.
