    Thanks. After all of that, he's just come back and said he's sold out of 10s and 11s. Bummer... I have my heart set on the V2.1 now.

    All of these photos look like V3s to me (the grey ones anyway). I've asked for some custom photos. We'll see if he sends them.

    These are scammy right?

    Those look like V2 right, not V2.1. I really like the upgraded fabric on the 2.1s.

    Edit: And so the saga continues... we'll see if this goes anywhere:

    Umm, no. These are plain old V2, the original form 2012/2013. The best version of this shoe is the shoe in the image above with the slimmed toe.

    I don't think the strap lights up on those. There is a version using EL, but I don't think it is those.
    That would be a shame if they removed the light up strap from the remote control Mags. That made them a good deal vs the other V2/derivatives.

    Sorry... I meant on his product page. Not the ones I showed in the post. Those were the photos he took for me. I knew those were V2s.

    Well, good luck - if you can get V2.1's from somewhere let the rest of us know. Not many of us have them.
    I should put a photo up of a stock V2 next to a V3 to show just how different they are. But.... too lazy to dig up my V2's from the storage room lol

    If he actually sends photos of 2.1s I'll post them here. I'm skeptical.

    Okay, I caved and dug up my V2's. Here's the comparison. The V2's aren't "bad" but the V3s are better in many ways, not just accuracy. I did attach a tongue extension on the V2, so if you get a pair, you will notice the tongue is shorter than this example.

    These randomly show up on eBay. Most of the time, the sellers mix the photos... but this auction seems legit. These are v2.1, right? Looks like it even has a replaced EL strap.

    MOD EDIT: Please do not post Ebay links, thanks.

    Wow, great find. I've been watching ebay for weeks and don't know how I missed this pair.

    I wear a 10.5. I wonder if this would be too big. I was told to buy a half size down.

    Well, just as I suspected. He didn't really have them. He said he could sell me the V2.1 shoes.

    I asked for photos and he said he'd send them. I got this message this morning.

    What a rollercoaster. I finally got the wife to agree to let me buy the V2s, and now I can't find the ones I'm after. Two sellers had me on the edge of believing I'd get them. After seeing the V2.1s, I don't think I want the 2s.

    Does anyone know of any other sources for V2.1s? I really like the upgraded fabric.

    I should have bought them when they were new and had the strap. I might still try for the red color for personal wear.

    In any case, I still need to figure out my next convention shoes. It's not gonna be another pair of HC.

    If your US10.5, these will be the same as either US10.5 or maybe US11, so just yourself a pair insoles. I have used them in V2s and now have them in my V3s because I am actually US9.5 and my shoes are US10. Packs them out nice as well as adding better support under the arch and padding under the heel.

    Thanks for the info. Now we'll have to see if it'll stay at a level I can afford.

    I really had my hopes up that I'd have a pair on the way this week.

    I found Karin Chen's email in one of the old V2 threads and contacted her to see if she had any V2.1s. She's checking into it.

    If she does, I'm not sure how we'll make the transaction. I'd like to have the safety of a DHgate or something incase it doesn't arrive.

    Any thoughts?

    Karin seems to have a stellar reputation, but sending $200 off without protection seems risky.

    Karin Chen was a reliable seller for most of us. It would be nice if she could do V3s.

    So the HC mags came in today... I'd rather not have mags than have these huge puffy moon boots.

    It really makes me appreciate how good so many here have made them look.

    There is only so much you can do with a pair of these. Having said that, I really did want to get myself a pair and mod the crap out of them. Like the V2s, so much of these are 'oversized' and my parts worked to help balance them out - especially the outriggers I made.

    I just wish they were the proper height. These are about 1.5" to 2.0" too short and it makes them hard to do anything great with them.

    I actually like the unbranded aspect of these and wish I could get my hands on a pair unbranded V3s.

    Yeah, I think everyone who ordered a pair were disappointed. They have the V2 sole, so I don't know why they couldn't have just made V2s that had no branding. Such a pity.

    So the sole is identical on the V2? Good to know.

    So darn yellow though.

    it looks the same to me, but they put way too much paint on it, the texture on the V2 shows up more as the grey paint coat is thinner.
    The soles can be replaced with clear ones (Cavx makes them) but I don't know about with HC's if it's worth it. I've replaced my soles on a pair of V2's with the ones he made. (I never bothered with my HC's and they've been in their box untouched for many months now, lol. I think I wore the V1's more.

    Oh, also, they look a little better if you take the straps off, and swap them so the velcro is on the inside of the shoe, not showing as much. That's the way they were designed, don't know why they get sent out with the straps on the wrong shoes, mine were like that too.

    Check eBay. I found V2 in both grey/white and black with gold for less than $100 per pair. I'm ordering myself a pair of black for work.
