Got a pair of 11.5 for $172.22 from this site. They are great and the boa system is even better than I expected. If you think that the knobs are easy to break...they are freakin tough. It would take a pretty hard bail out to even damage them a little bit. Bottom line, they are worth every penny and should be bought. I would maybe go up half size if you buys these. I normally wear a size 11 shoe and bought 11.5 just in case and fit just as good if not better.
