Default I'm thinking of buying Romulan boots, but they are so expensive!

I'm thinking of buying the boots the Romulans wore (Ayya Jika-Tabi), but they are really expensive ($180).

Do you think these are worth $180? I really want to get a pair, but if they are a waste of money, then I'm not sure.

Maybe the tariff from Romulus is too high, all those slave Reman shoe makers. Try to get them from Ferenginar just make sure they are not fakes.

You might check these out... they are being marketed as Trek boots.

What are the soles on them like? Are the soles tough enough for everyday wear?

rrrrriiiiiiggggghhhhhhtttttt! And this happens to be your only post! How convenient.

Mods. You should delete the thread starter for being a darn pain in the butt. Isn't there a rule against trying to sell stuff here?

You already know, you're probably the "other" guy that happens to come here and make one post that happens to be about silly boots.

Please drop the BS
