Boots?

Ok I did the boots search and didn't come up with much.

I know Sidi boots are sweet, but I need to get something out of our books so I can get it at dealer cost.

So I can choose from the following:

Alpinestars

Icon

Agvsport

Fieldsheer

Gaerne

Diadora

Anyone have a pair from one of these that they really like? I don't think I will be doing much walking around in these. Going in a store or gas station, not going to wear them when I just ride to work then I will be in them all day. So I'm looking for a boot for RIDING not going to the mall.

Thanks for any info...

Your choice is easy! Alpinestar SMX-Plus racing boots (http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...--34-A512.html).
I have a pair and they are great boots. Not only are they what you're looking for.. but they're also comfortable enough to walk around in. I always wear them when I ride no matter how I'll be riding or where I'm going.

Hi mstrand_68:

My sole (hey, that's funny!) piece of advice about the boots is that you should get the BLACK version of whatever you choose. Colored leathers, gloves, and boots have a way of coming back to haunt you when you purchase a new bike or your tastes change as you grow older.

I concur with this, that is what I wear and have them for like 3 years and are very comfy. I highly recommend them.

If you are looking for a deal, don't forget ebay. I got luck on an auction and picked mine up for about $100 cheaper than the retail on them.

i agree alpinestars are great. if your looking for a boot to wear on the street that is comfortable and protective get the new icon field armors. i wear them all day, almost everyday now for 2 weeks. they need some breaking in though as with every boot.

I would get either of the top 2 Alpinestars. I have both. After some serious slides in Supertechs, I can highly recommend them.

I know you can't choose from Sidi, but check Ebay. I got a brand new pair of Vertabra's for a hundred bucks. Can't beat it even with wholesale. Great boots by the way. Get'em a 1/2 size bigger than your size though.
