    I just ordered some shoes on eBay from http://stores.ebay.com/Istanbul-Cycles?_trksid=p4340.l2563

    I was just wondering if anybody had experience with this store? Also, any idea how the prices are so cheap? I ordered shoes that retail for $450 for almost half.

    I'll let you all know how my order goes when I get the shoes.

    There could be a few reasons why they're so cheap:

    1. The shoes are knock-offs and not the real thing.
    2. The shoes are stolen.
    3. The shoes are discarded irregulars from Sidi or blemished.

    I wouldn't worry at all though. After all, a price so ridiculously cheap is absolutely believable. Moreover, I'll bet customer service from that eBay store just rocks, and Sidi will just leap at the opportunity to warranty any issues you might have. That just has to be expected.

    Wasn't there a saying about the cost of lunch......?

    Hahaha, what I meant to say is how are they so much cheaper. Anyways, thanks for the input. I'll let you know how the shoes are when they come in. I really hope they are legit and in good condition (meaning that if they are irregular that they don't actually mess with my stroke/form).
