The Sidi Vertigo Air is what I am leaning towards. Just need to go try 'em on.

Vertigo $276= Will have to replace after 1 to 2 track/race seasons because sole wears out.

Vortice $475= Only boot with replaceable soles. You'll make up the cost in 1 or 2 seasons.

The Vortices are significantly easier to resole, but the vertigos can be done!
