I have seen a few other eBay sales with different sizes.

These are $20 more but look like the same boot.

P.S. They also have Vortice clones....

Oh well, glad I scored an almost new set of Sidi's last year. Mine need re-soled.

Nothing larger than size 12 on those auctions either.

I'm sold.

It seems like the major point is stitching. The rest is just leather/plastic material which shouldn't cost much to use comparable materials. In my crashes all damage has been to plastic pieces around the outside of the boot not effecting any stitching. As long as there is good ankle support I don't see how this would be a bad buy as to similar priced boots.

I just looked at the description of the Sidi boots, and they are also synthetic leather like material.
