EB GT manual Gear Boot Vs Standard

Is there a difference between these two?? The Gt one is $20 new and the standard one is $18. Im guessing it cant be leather for only $20, is there any difference? any one have piks? Thanks.

It's vinyl. Was looking at it the other day in dealer, no pics but it looks very much like leather.

Re: EB GT manual Gear Boot Vs Standard

Cool let us know how it goes TIKFD6, but do they look like the standard EB one? or is it like an actual sock?

Re: EB GT manual Gear Boot Vs Standard

Hey Tikfd, I remember seeing that before but cbf going searching for it....how much were you thinking of? I might take one or two.
Actually, I'll chat to the regulars in Perth, might be able to rope in a few people. I can think of 3 off the top of my head, and a few more who want to go manual.
So there's a bit of incentive

Re: EB GT manual Gear Boot Vs Standard

Yeah i had a pic in the gallery, but i deleted it last week and my mate has the disc of photo's on it.

Im not sure on what id want for them, it would depend on the material costs and how long it takes to make them.
I made mine about 8 years ago.
