CA Boots now cost $140

    CA Boots now cost $140

    Hey all,

    Just got a reply to my eBay question... The folks at CA Boots have raised their price on Boba Fett boots from $100 to $140 via their eBay auctions.

    The website still has them listed at $100, so I ordered my pair. FYI to those who may be planning to buy them. The price on the website may also go up.

    I saw that too. I ordered a pair off of their site Saturday night and then saw the eBay price a little while later. Funny, their Darth Vader boots list for $75 on their website but have a BIN of $35.00 on eBay.

    Yeah, I think I am the first sucker that bought them for $140, I am pretty mad. I thought it sounded higher then normal. When I checked into it at CAboots they still only cost $100. The manufatuer isnt planning to raise the price, so if the ebay reseller is saying this, hes lieing.

    Well, the person who responded to my eBay question is the customer service person for CA Boots, so they have effectively raised the price, in at least one point of sale. She did say she wasn't sure if it was temporary or permanent, and directed me to the website to purchase.

    I'm glad I knabbed mine at $100, too. Ordered a half size larger than I usually wear and they fit like a glove er...boot...I guess. Very comfy, I am going to hate taking black spray paint to them.

    I agree, they can't sell the same boot in two different locations for different prices. They must think ebay users are nieve (it's a typo, I know, but the spell check could not find the correct word)

    I would e-mail them explaining the situation, and ask if you could have a refund. Be polite! Don't get upset when you e-mail them, being polite can go a long way!

    Its naive. Just remember that its Evian backwards. People are naive to pay for Evian. Somebody pointed this out to me years ago and it kind of stuck in my head all this time

    Your post just made me realize that there is a spell-checker on the Reply to Thread. Thanks!

    Re: CA Boots now cost $140

    I went through the checkout on there site and it was only going to charge me $100 plus sales tax and shipping, that would have come two about $116.50... when you buy through there ebay store it directs you back to there site to pay, having been both a web designer and web master I know that takes deliberate effort two set up a seccond check out for that item. CAboots did mean to charge me $40 more. I wouldnt be sour about it if it were consistant. I contacted them and am awiating a responce. I will be asking for my $40 difference back. If they wont do that then I will ask for a complete refund and rebuy through there website. If that dosnt work... well... not sure... I will use the TK409 walkthrough and build em out of matchboxs and toothpicks...

    Their action in this will really show what matters more to them...40 bucks now or future business. I bet if they get a few unfavorable reviews on this board it will put a "DENT" in their future sales on this model.

    Its only because of this website and the people on it they look like they do. When CA first presented there boots they where leather, without a square toe and plain crap. Seems a shame they would hike them up $40 when they know basicaly people from this website are the ones ordering them. Thats what you get for being helpful these days.

    and Cheaper on Ebay!

    It would be amazing that Mark Cheng could come back to the boots bussiness, and make his boots again ...

    What would you recomend me to do... buy the Caboots ?? or wait for a future MC run ??? what would be the cleverest option ???

    MC posted a little bit back that he has no future plans to make Boba boots.

    Soooo.... your options are:

    Buy from CA
    Hope a used pair of MC's or JW's come up for sale
    Make your own
    Go barefoot....

    Re: CA Boots now cost $140

    Well, herd back from management and there solution was to fix the price on there website to match the $140 price tag, according to them the manufacturer raised the price so they had to do the same. Apparently Boba boots are made of crude oil! LOL

    Oh well, not much I can do... it just sucks because the price difference would pay for boot toe spikes almost!

    well, on the "bright" side, $140 is still cheaper than having customs made... :-/
