From the hoods to the woods.
Offering convenient and reliable Speed Zone lacing, a low-profile footprint, and the all-mountain freestyle flex that Pat Moore and John Jackson demand, the Forum Kicker Snowboard Boot is a park boot that can take on the whole mountain. The Kicker has a mid-stiff flex complimented by the super-soft but supportive Footpillow footbed, F-Gel cushioning in the liner and outsole, and Hoodrich Gangsta Wrap tongue that's straight-puffed so you get no punk-ass gaps between the shell and the tongue cuz you have you no time for slippin' or trippin.'
- Speed Zone lacing on the shell gets you strapped in to win while your friends squirm around the ground tying their inferior laces
- Level 3 liner provides heat-moldable capabilities and with F Gel in the heel, so flat landings will be NBD
- Footpillow footbed hooks your foot up with all-day comfort and superior arch support and cushioning for gapping into parking lots
- Good Vibes outsole flexes naturally, giving you skate-like board feel; F Gel in the heel adds extra cushion to absorb landings all day long
- Gold Cuff Link internal liner lacing holds your foot deep in the ankle pocket and doesn't quit until you loosen it
- Forever Fit construction uses new materials, guts the unnecessary bulk, and a new design to assure your boot won't pack out all season long

For 'em! Mostly...
My info: 6'4", 200 lbs. 10 years riding.
Got in an 11.5!
Well, I purchased these after I exploded my 2012 K2 Maysis. I usually go for a mid-stiff, do everything boot - this delivers.
Packing these boots out was pretty rough, but now that it's over, these feel real nice. The shrinkage on these is nuts! Makes my feet look like baby feet. These boots are nice and supportive, but...
I hate the speed lacing. Can't get them how I want them. If I'm screwing around in the park and want a looser fit, I can't get it without it feeling "too loose." So I usually just crank down on the laces, and still have to do it probably about 2 more times throughout the day.
TLDR; Supportive boot with a small footprint, but uggghhhhh... the speed lacing sucks!

I'm currently rocking the 2009 model of the Kicker and I'm needing some new boots. I really like my boots so my question is will this model fit the same as my current boots or have they changed?
Yes, I would go same size.
Extremely comfy, great heel hold. I can even insert my orthotic without removing the footbed. The quick lace is awesome. The boots fit a little big - I usually wear a men's 9.5, but when I tried the Kicker in a 9.5 in the store, it was a little too loose and I knew it would pack out so I wanted a smaller size. The store owner tried to sell me the 9.5 because that was all they had in stock, stating he could add extra padding, but I'm glad I ordered the 9, instead. Shipping was super fast so I received my boots before our trip that weekend. =)
Kicker boot is good!
You think cause of forums tweeker tech that the team would use them more ofter. Well that's sorta of true. Most riders on the forum team such as Nic Suave, Pat Moore, Jake welch and more. Ride the kicker boot because its durable and gives them the stiffness on the out side but still gives them that soft comfy feeling on the inside. The feel good soul known as "fgel" is compatible with the good vibes binding the padding is made from the same make as the soul. Giving a more comfortable ride and naturally adjusting your stance. The kicker boot is all god in all terrain!!!!
The most supportive park boot in the line, and backed by Pat Moore, the Kicker lets you hit all the biggest features in comfort. The Level 3 liner, with FGel cushioning in the heel, provides maximum dampening for big landings, while the new Gansta Wrap tongue reduces gapping between the boot shell and tongue, giving a tight fit for better support. Meanwhile, the naturally flexing Good Vibes outsole offers greater feel and the FGel cushioning absorbs impact, so you can stomp all day with ease.
