I listed my old (50 days) DC judges for 80 bucks. When the guy showed up to pay he didnt even haggle and handed me the full amount. I felt so bad knowing they had already molded to my feet, but he seemed to be on a tight budget so I gave him $40 back and told him i was just glad they were still going to get some use.

$100 for used boots is WAY to high. Ive never tried to wear used boots but I would imagine they would HURT being formed for someone else's feet.

My first pair of boots were used Vans BFB's with two days on them. Guy got them and realized he needed a wider boot.

They cost me $50 and I got about 100 days on them

Yeah, I'd be very wary of boots used more than 5 days... even then you don't really know if they're straight-up lying to your broke ass

Why this particular boot? Look around, there's gotta be better deals than that. Leave that shit to people who don't know any better.

I'd feel bad about selling anyone used boots at all, unless they're hardly ridden at all.

I agree with people having concerns about 2nd hand boots. On the other hand, I spent more than 35 days on my ions and completed more than 800 kms. Unlike my Motos, they still look solid and supportive as one before. Please be sure that your boot fitting snugly…

I never had a pair of Burtons last more than 70 days. Ions are suppose to be like the Women's Sapphire. I had 2 pairs of those and they were damaged and shot at around 70 days. I also had a pair of Emeralds fall apart badly before the season was over. The sole started coming off.

Those are done son.
