agreed...having 10k/10k is way more important than the brand name or the color.
and again, i strongly suggest you go to a board shop & try shit on. not only will you save on shipping, but you may even catch a sale. and you'd be supporting your local shredder, as opposed to some bigger corporation.
and with boots, you DEFINITELY need to try them on in a shop. boots aren't something you buy just for looks. read through the threads on this site regarding boots. ...like i said, do some research, don't just go off a pipe dream. i know it's fun looking up all the stuff you want to buy...it's like looking through the toys r us catalog at christmas time, but these things have a purpose (to be functional) which should be your main concern.
