I have SIDI On Road Sympatex boots. They're excellent boots for everyday riding.Probis said:
I guess the spidey sense should have tingled on that one
At any rate, this has soured my view on their entire product line - like most things, you get what you pay for. At least my suit is Spyke (and holding up well)
I have a pair of the Alpinstars GPS boots. Had them for a little over a year and so far, so good. They don't have all the bells and whistles as some others, but I like them well enough. Looking back, though, I should have paid a few bucks more for something with sturdier protection. I dig the Doohan reps. Most importantly, they would match my helmet.rponiarski said:Looks like Alpinstar are the concensus favorites here. I see a pair of Tech Road GTX boots in the Competition Accessories catalog for around $200. Anyone have any good or bad reviews on them? They also have the GPS Boot at about $170. Also from Alpinstar. Anyone with comments on them?
There really isn't any protection on the outside of the foot, just a thin (real thin) pad of leather at the toe box. On the shin it has some kind of hard foam, but nothing substantial, and the ankle protection is just a bit of rubber. Still, they were better than the other boots I checked out in that price range and they work great for me.rponiarski said:Scotty, why do you think you should have gone with a higher end boot than the GPS? What is so bad about the protection? Looks good in the catalogs.
