I have the men's version and these are the absolutely worst boots I have ever owned in 18 years of snowboarding. I walked around trying to break them in and wound up having bloody, numb toes in warm weather. The toe box is horribly tight and does not break in. The only use I've found for these was as a doorstop or as something to throw at someone.

Great boots! It feels like it fits a half size too small, but it packs out after a few uses. I originally bought a half size bigger, but had to size down because my heel started lifting a lot no matter how tight I tied these babies.
Overall, they fit nicely when sized correctly. Very comfortable and very flexible. It has an articulated cuff area where there is no leather for easier flex at your ankle. This is a traditional lace up boot, so no easy way out on lacing up your boots like the boa system or anything like that. Traditional lace up systems can be a bit better in getting the exact tightness where you need it. I usually lace them up hockey style, just youtube "Snowboard Boot Guide - Traditional Lacing". This shows you how to lace up your boots to get them not to loosen up on the slopes.
The only con is the inner boot lacing system. It is semi difficult to tighten with how the system is. Instead of the regular laces that you pull with all your might up to tighten, pulling up loosens the laces. How you tighten in these is to pull the laces to the sides and it brings this plastic piece down towards the boot to lock the laces in place. Great idea to lock the laces down, it is just a little harder to do than normally yanking it up towards yourself. It can be a bit annoying especially if your hands are cold lacing up at your car in the parking lot.
Once past that, these are great! Like I had said, extremely comfortable and extremely flexible. Nike knows how to craft good footwear fit!
