I have a pair of forces and they served me well but I would like to get away from the force base plate. The hard plastic in the heel section feels bad on my heel because the soles of my boots are pretty soft and low profile.
You'll be able to track them down, but it'll be hard/expensive to do so until the end of the season.
If you're talking ride-ability, I believe Alka, in that there's not enough of a difference in the highback to the way you ride. Sure do look cool though.
If you want more a feeling in the heel AND a team highback, see if you can still find some Union Holdens. They'd fit the bill.
