Selling new boots tried them on and they are a bit too big.
Only the left boot has been worn for apromimately 4 steps. Should have plenty of life left.... :D

They still have the tags on them.

Size 48
All black with white a-star symbols
They are perforated leather. To promote some breath-ability (if thats a word)

Here is a link to the same boots.

I'd take em off your hands but they're a few sizes too big.

btw, shouldn't this be in the classifieds section?

A reasonable question but I can tell you from personal experience that posting to the Free Classifieds requires approval before the ad is posted, which is reasonable, but it takes quite a while before that happens. Like days. That's bad. Thus I tend to use the non-motorcycle classified section.

Yeah, bummer, too big I presume. I wear a 46 in Sidis and assume they're sized similarly.

Some tracks require all gear others require gear less the leather pants. It depends. Boots are very expensive but your ankle's are important! I am listing mine because there is no way anyone can get them that cheap!

They are comfortable, I would not use them to go hikeing or walking around a ton, but as for riding they are awesome!

They are not stiff at all. Once you wear them for one ride they will break in nicely. I wear mine every ride and that usually consists of stopping often and walking around a bit. The best thing about these boots is that they are vented and when riding above 40mph you can feel air cooling your feet. For me the sure do inspire more confidence in my riding knowing that my feet/ankles are as protected as possible while still giving me great break and shifting feel. You can really notice a big difference when wearing these compared to the typical "work boots", the toe is not a tall so you can easily get under the shifter and it provides great feedback when shifting.
