    $199 w/ free shipping ok returns w/ $8.50 restocking fee or free exchange (sounds fair)

    http://www.onlinebootstore.com/Merch...c?Screen=RETEX

    Checked these folks out too ... their policy is one return (the customer pays shipping) per 30 days. With all the competition on-line these days, a $8.50 "restocking fee" is baloney ... if you asked me (no one did). I also found it a bit annoying that they ding shipments to military APO/FPO an extra $7.50 ... but it's their business, and they can do what they want.

    A strategy that I have employed in the past (with other sellers) is to "bracket" my purchase by ordering an extra pair in a bigger size, wider, etc ... knowing that I will have to return at least one pair.

    I believe the restocking fee is only for a return/cash back, not a swap for different size...

    Good luck!

    I picked up a pair of these Rally boots a few weeks ago and, so far, I really like them. With size 13 feet very wide at the toe box (shovel feet) I had found NO moto-specific boots that would fit without pain. The EE width of these Chippewa boots works for me and the style is acceptable. Nice leather lining but no insole. Added a pair of smartfeet insoles and they are quite comfy. Still getting broken in so I do get some rubbing when walking around in them. Got mine at snakeboots.com... good pricing and they actually had them in inventory.

    Dang! I thought Snakeboots.com was just a cutesy internet retailer name...

    They really do sell "snake boots".
