Thanks for the help! Since I posted, I found it at evogear.com for 499. I will utilize their price match guarantee to get it cheaper than usoutdoor.com.
Another question if I may: I tried on the 25.5(I was shell sized for it) in the store and they felt great. The last two boots I have bought in previous years packed out and left me with a too big a boot. I am concerned that the same will happen with the new boot(Salomon Impact 10)
Think it would be a good idea to get a 24.5(since there is no difference between 25.5 and 25), compare the 24.5 and 25.5 and send back the one that does not fit? Just curious as I don't want to have to spend another 500 bucks for boots in a couple years.
