Thanks guys. Yeah i have been trawling Craigslist but alas no luck as far, it doesn't help that i am an awkward size (13).
I also agree that boots need to be new or thereabouts to be any use. I have invested a lot of money to be here in WB and it would be silly to short change my riding experience because of a couple of hundred dollars extra.
Thanks for your help and suggestions, i might go into town tomorrow and try some more boots on and see if i get spirited away. Tried on the Vans Aura a size down and they were agony but the sales person assured me they would fill out, which is exactly what happened to my Vans Aura that have now broken.
Anyway i digress thanks alot for the advice everyone.
