How do the answers to those questions help you decide whether or not to buy the boots?:icon_scratch:
More info never hurts. Mostly to try and figure out how much the boots have been used. If there is one piece of gear I wouldn't want to buy used, it would be boots, but if they were barely used then I would consider it. If he had said I only ride backcountry in Alaska, I would assume the boots were worn to shit. If he said he is from Florida and rides 6 days every year at vail, I would assume the boots were still fresh.

In my mind, paying 210 for used boots, there is a big difference between used 5 days and used 25 days, and how they were used is a big impact as well.

But I don't mean to hijack the OP. The Ions are a great boot. I've been riding them since they first came out with speed zone lacing. Sucks my feet have fallen in love with such a pricy boot.

Good explanation.
Agree with all of it.

I've got 100% positive on eBay with 220 feedbacks. Some of the equipment that I sell is beat and I've got no problem telling people that....

These boots were ridden a handful of days out west (4-5) and spent a decent amount of time standing around in the midwest. They're not packed out, the interior isn't ripped or worn and they are still stiff. There isn't any damage to the outside and they still have plenty of cush in them.

Plus -- they can be heat molded to their new owner and everyone can be happy. You can pick them up for less than half of retail and still have the best boots on the market.

"Line the pockets?" I'm asking a fair price for a nice pair of boots. If you don't want them -- that's fine but I'm not asking for a donation or a hand-out.

I've also got 215 eBay feedbacks, a verified paypal account and can prove my identity/good naturedness through multiple avenues if anyone is interested in these boots. I've done thousands of online transactions through forums like this one and I've never had a problem, been burned or ripped anyone off.

Don't like this thread? Feel free to stay out of it. Why crap all over someone elses posts just because you're not interested?

If you read the links you would understand.

If you want to move items it's gotta be for irresistible prices. $200 for a pair of boots that smell like your feet is not super irresistible. Thats a fact jack. You can cry all you want about me telling you the truth, its not like your boots sold yet.

Wanna sell em or not? You obviously are here to sell shit not make friends right? so who cares if you and I don't get along.

The links have nothing to do with it, douche.

$200 for a pair of boots that retail for $429.95. And I'm offering to pay $25 in shipping costs.

I get that you think they're overpriced.... then guess what? You don't have to buy them. What do you hope to gain by threadcrapping?

And the link about Shaun White? I have no idea how that applies. You think because I'm new on the forum that means that I don't "give back" to snowboarding? You have no idea who I am or the contributions I've made to this sport. Pound sand, nerd.

I'm not here to make pretend internet fights or ruin it for you. Reading comprehension is hard. Name calling will definitely help.

The only reason I chimed in at all is because you were double posting obviously trying to get your boots to move and seemingly not understanding why u weren't getting any nibbles. Too bad if my explanation hurt your precious feelings.
