Old thread but figured I'd bump it anyway.

ExtremeSupply.com still has the Sidi Vertigo Air's on sale for $255 USD. Shipping is free within the US. Beware though - they're on closeout which means no returns.

Just ordered a pair.

Hahaha I understand they're a discontinued model but even when they're a 3 year old boot, seems like they hold their retail value well. Are you still using the Vertigo Air's or did you move on to something else?

Got the jacket, boots, gloves, insurance - can't wait for the season to start!

still wearing the vertigo. i tried on a pair of dainese torque pros over the summer and the fit was amazing. felt like i was slipping into a pair of boots that were molded specifically for my feet. didn't have enough room in my luggage to bring them back though. in any case, the vertigos have been very good to me. saved my foot from getting crushed between a car and my bike once

LOL well, they're the same as the ones listed on the website.

Edit: And by nice, I mean in comparison to my Nitro Air boots I bought off 68style who bought them from Modern.

I'm looking to pick up riding shoes before I get riding this season so I don't need to put on my SMX-5's when kicking around town, going somewhere quick, etc.

I've narrowed it down to the TCX X-Square and the A* Fastlane after taking everything into consideration. Parm and K3lv, seems like you guys really like yours, that's why I'm considering the TCX.
Does anybody have the Fastlanes?
Reviews on different websites say the TCX gets sort of cold at lower temperatures around 10 C, which isn't going to be uncommon here in Vancouver lol
