Is there such thing as faked snowboard boots?

I'm doing some research on boots, since i just bought a board/bindings. i know i shouldnt buy boots online, but i was hoping to try them on at a store, then buy them online for a cheaper price. but can ebay be trusted? for example, are these $190 DC PARK Black/Gum Snowboard BOOTS MENS 8.5 NIB - (eBay item 320195210618 end time Dec-18-07 19:00:00 PST)

authentic? they're dc park boots. seems like a very good price, and the seller claims they are authentic, im wonder if people actually sell fakes of snowboard boots on ebay? thx

Well, I can't answer the general question of whether or not fake boots exist, but that seller has a very high feedback % so I'd be surprised if those specific boots were fake.

I would say they are not fake. One place that alot of these career ebayers get their stock are from auction houses that get rid of dead stock for large retail companies. It's amazing how cheap they can buy product but you do have to buy large quantities. I wouldn't be surprised that this guy actually purchased those boot for less than 1/2 of what his "buy it now" price is.
