Boots are expensive, no 2 ways about it Due to a boo-boo, I had to replace mine late last year and wasn't able to find the boots I wanted for a price I was willing to pay. Searching the web, I came across Elite Boots in NC. https://www.usedmxboots.com/ The boots they sell are used, not worn out used, but barely used. Take a look at their inventory. I was able to buy a pair of Sidi Crossfire 3 for less than $400, delivered in 2 days. Yep, they were used. Used in a photoshoot. Never worn with tags. $400 is much better than $575! Of course, you are limited to the brands, colors, and sizes they have for immediate purchase. If you had some time, you might try the contact form and see if they could help with what you're looking for.
