Just got mine today. I ordered them on eBay about 3 days ago. No box, but full documentation with contact info if there is a problem. I ordered my usual size 12/46 after carefully measuring my foot as suggested. Fit is great, although right out of the package, they remind me of ski boots a little bit. I expect they will break in with wear. I was afraid they would be too narrow as my foot tends to be a little wider, but even with a heavy sock, they feel really good. Of course, YMMV.

That cannot be true, but as eBay gives you buyer protection I cannot work out the con.
Looking at this Hong Kong site he is selling all three colors, plus full size, plus a couple of different AGV Valentino Rossi helmets! Been around since September 2018.
His feedback is 100% positive on a low turnover and looks suspect.

Aw, what the hell. It will only me $16.99 to find out, and I just need to see how he can defeat the eBay protection system. I do not need a Rossi AGV helmet for $18.99, so I will order a spare pair of boots.
I very much doubt that they will arrive.

They will break in. I was a bit taken aback by how stiff mine were, fore and aft, right out of the box. But after a few wearings, they’ve loosened up nicely. The more I wear mine, the more I like them.

Way to potentially take one for the team! I’m on the edge of my seat.

Estimated delivery:
Wed, 08 May - Fri, 31 May

I also found these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sidi-Advent....c100042.m2062
And these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sidi-Crossf....c100005.m1851

Different suppliers from different places in China, but you cannot even make any sort of conterfeit for that money. We'll see. I am more curious on how they might defeat eBay's buyer protection.

I’ve certainly wasted more money than 16 bucks. Tempted to give it a shot.

You sure the issue isn't with water making it "down inside" instead of becoming saturated? Big reasons I'll never go with a low boot over full size, being less protection and much more chance of wet feet. Forma makes great boots in particular for the money, they are overall very well known for their waterproof qualities and being tough.
Nope,I had rain pants on and my legs were dry.

Plus we were 2 guys with the same situation. Rain pants on...well over the boots and the boots were full of water. It took mine 2 hours more than is..but water came through.

The boots weren't just humid..I mean when turn upside down..water would fall from them.

Another guinea pig here, ordered 11 Brown low boots. I know, too good to be true, probably a cheap counterfeit...
