Question SIDI Vortice replaceable sole, where to buy them?

OK so SIDI's new Vortice race-boot is obviously the best looking boot on the market and since its SIDI, its probably super comfortable and lightweight. So since racers are using aftermarket rearsets for traction (more traction=more wear) there boot soles are getting shreaded fast and needing to be replaced every couple of months. Brand new $425 boots getting tossed out due to a hole in the sole. Anyway, SIDI's new replaceable sole is amazing and an awesome idea BUT where are these replaceable soles? I looked all over the web and cant find them? Anybody??

Ima buy the white ones (unless the soles are $100, )


Vortice Sole
VorticeAir Black 250

i'm looking for boots myself right now. but I may wait to buy some because my toes are still dragging in some corners. I need to work on my body positioning. or should I buy them and see if new boots help me out because of the new technology. my boots now are about 8 years old.
