As a side note, if anyone has the opportunity to see Dean perform, take advantage of it.  Saw him in Pittsburgh over the winter, and had a great time.  He's into a lot of the same things the rest of us are, he's very enthusiastic about life, and is one of the few entertainers I've encountered on social media who doesn't hesitate to interact with fans privately.  Seems to be just an all around cool guy.

With these boots being custom, purchasing one on the used market a no-no?

I would say it depends on the fit/measurements, and then the pricing.
 
Fit:
 
I have 2 pairs of Role Clubs (Engineers, and a pair of custom M-42 service shoes). What I know is each time you order a pair (He won't make you a new pair of boots based on your measurements from another pair that he's made in the past), you have to submit your measurements per his guidance. If someone is selling a pair second-hand, they likely should have (Or, be able to reproduce and provide) the measurements that they submitted to Brian. You could then measure your feet, and compare to see if they will work for you.
 
Price:
 
Unless the measurements are VERY close to exactly what yours are, I absolutely wouldn't pay anywhere close to full price... Maybe 75% full price. Anything more than that, you should just commission your own pair, and rest assured that they will fit 100% to your feet.

Thank you much for your response, it's really helpful. The need for immediate gratification is getting the best of me I suppose.

I wouldn't. The wait is long, but certainly worth it. 

Just to help you make your decision, I will tell you that my left boot from Brian is sized slightly differently than my right boot. You really don't want to end up with my boots even if you are a similar size.
