Chris is right. For the money this is the best you will be able to acquire with the time constraint you have. Don't pass em up if they fit you well.

Yea of course. If not borrow some boots and save up some money. The boots you are looking at are . You can twist your ankle in them just walking around

Increase your budget and protect yourself better. Don't halfass on protection man. That extra $100 could possibly save your leg from getting f$%ked up. It's your money though

The other 100 is coming from your paychecks. Ask house of paint for a quote on the smx plus boots. Or want me to ask em

But yeah the smx plus pinball has not a bad deal for 150, id offer him something slightly less though considering theyre 2010

And new, old stock 2010's are still going for $250+.

I'm just curious why you're knocking these boots when you're trying to sell a smaller pair of the same ones....especially after your, "If they don't sell, I'll use them on the track" comment. They must not be all that bad if they're good enough for a racer to wear.

Im not knocking your a*boots protection wise. Its just that they're older and $200 asking is over priced. 150 obviously is more reasonable but that's between you and donte. I let mine go for 100. Just saying. If hes going to spend 150 on yours might as well go to the nicer ones

Spend the money broken ankles suck. Ive lowsided at 100+mph and 60mph both very mild sprain ankles.

I love my sidi Vortice Air they are out of your range at $400-500 a pair but everything is replaceable when they wear out lve gone through 1 sole and 2 toe sliders they are awesome boots I stand by them always. So if I were you id just save for a better pair
