    SHHHH!!! Secret, secret!
    I am not sure either! Could either be a scam, or counterfeit, or damaged. No refunds or exchanges. Thanks for the "tip", though. I did order a pair of boots, so I can let you know if/when they arrive.

    The seller at that link does indeed have excellent feedback (from 75 buyers, lol). Almost every single positive feedback is for the purchase of "slim fit V-neck t-shirts" sold to buyers paying in Hong Kong Dollars. :imaposer

    I have Sidi Adventure and paid well over $19 for them. Buy ten pair!
    86 have sold, yet no feedback on these.
    The v-neck shirts sold in the feedback are showing HKD 1040. Click on the item sold and it lists HKD 208. Equivalent to about $27 USD; more than the boots.

    Are Adventure 2s made in China? My first gen weren't, I think they're Italian. If the 2s are made in China I would say it is theoretically possible - some get sent to Sidi some get sold out the back. But I'm thinking even at 20 bucks it isn't worth the risk. But if you get sent ANY boots, maybe they will be a good 20 boot.

    Highly doubt it. I've PM'ed them 3 times for a tracking number with no response.

    I wouldn't worry, I'm sure they are already on the ship.

    Are you guys seriously expect them to ship you something? :rofl

    I know a place that sells brand new R1200GS's or Yamaha 700 Tenere, either one $500 shipped. You can pay with PayPal.

    At least now there are three negative feedback reviews on them. What does it take for ebay to kick them out?
