Re: Suggestions for boots?

I wanted some boots with a bit of colour to them without being too expensive and so bought some by a company called "Black" on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Venom-Motorcycle-Boots-Blue/dp/B006T08ATI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389216255&sr=8-1&keywords=black+motorcycle+boots
Stood up well with my recent meeting with the tarmac and was certainly glad I was using them and not my soft leather ones.

Edit: Doh, just noticed you're US based so probably completely irrelevant to you.

Recently picked these up for a ridiculous closeout price of $49. Regular price was $179.
They seem to be almost identical to the Cortech Latigo Airs

Re: Suggestions for boots?

Do they fit well and are they made well. Sorry for the questions I just don't really know how well different brands are as these will be my second pair and my first pair went to junk after 2 seasons

Re: Suggestions for boots?

Hey,

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.

The spirit never dies....
