Re: Suggestions for boots?
I needed some boots and wanted some that I could use on the track, too. I tried Sidi Cobras and the lorica (imitation leather) was like stiff cardboard. I sent them back and ordered Alpinestars SMX-plus boots. Big difference for the extra money. The SMX-plus boots have like a bootie that your foot fits into with laces inside of the boot. They are really comfortable and well made. I got the 2011 model at a discounted price from Sportbike Track Gear. The Alpinestars sizing chart is pretty close. I wear a US 10 and ended up with 44 with the Alpinestars.
