Want to Know About: Set Up boots

has anyone purchased any Set Up Boots or used them or even seen them? specifically the Grand Prixs. from what i've read they are from the same guys who make Sidi only much cheaper since they don't advertise etc.

anyway here's what newenough.com said about them if you are interested.

"Setup is an Italian designed boot being imported to the US by the same folks that bring us Sidi boots. The construction of the boots is very similar in appearance and construction to other top brands we carry, but the emphasis on these boots will be to offer the same quality boot at a lower price. To do this, Setup is marketing without the use of major endorsements and expensive advertising, but rather they are relying on features, quality and price alone. Will it work? Who knows, but we feel this boot offers very good value for the money. The Gran Prix H20 is a waterproof sport/street design with protective features in all the right areas (see list above). To make the boot comfortable for street riding, the soles are slightly more substantial than racing boots, so they provide some cushion and support (rather than being a thin hard rubber). The closure zipper is well made and the Velcro closure over the zipper makes them very secure. Like other Italian designs, this boot is made of a synthetic leather. Sidi and Alpinestars use Lorica brand material, but this boot uses a similar non-branded material... again, to keep the cost down. To me, the look and feel is identical. This boot uses a "Tepor" lining (similar product as Gore-Tex) to provide the waterproof feature. This is the same brand material used in Sidi waterproof boots (no good generic waterproof lining materials I guess ."

i can get them for a bit less then this but i was just curious to hear if anyone had heard anything about them. thanks in advance.

Imported does not mean made by. Just so you know.

They look like they're better than Nikes... but I'll stick to my Sidi's. Great street boot, doesn't look like something I'd be comfy with on the track.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

I bought a pair of the Vision street boots this spring and love them. Very comfortable, good quality, and show no wear after 7000 street miles. Great deal for a street boot.
