oxtar?

anyone have any comments on the quality of oxtar boots? They make a really low profile high-shoe/boot called the adrenaline that I think looks great, but I'm worried about this brand -- I've never heard of them.

I just ordered the alpinestars stunt shoe, and then came across the oxtar. Anyone have an opinion?

Re: oxtar?

Been wearing them for a few years and they have held up well. After 2.5 crashes they are still going strong. the ".5" was a save where I was going down, and somehow saved it, but drug the top of one of the boots on the pavement.

Unless he just switched, Duhamel wears Alpinestars boots.

Zemke wears Oxtar, as well as many other AMA, WSB & MotoGP riders. Made in Italy; they've been in the US for several years, and gaining more in popularity.

They seem to be a pretty decent brand.

Re: oxtar?

My Oxtar Jupiter boots are very substantial, feeling almost like some of the Sidi race boots I've tied on at the local shop. Yet they are extremely comfortable, more so than any other moto-boot I've put on my foot. They offer very sturdy construction and beefy levels of ankle protection. Gore-Tex lining is a nice bonus (waterproof and breathable), the soles are uber-grippy, and I like the relief they've cut into the back of the boot top to allow sportbike riders to articulate their foot downward to pick up the shifter and brake pedal. In short, these things flat rock for everyday wear.

Re: oxtar?

Oxtars are great boots. They are contracted to make some Dainese boots and other brands.

Re: oxtar?

I love mine. Very comfy to wear! Althought I can't sneak up on anyone with these on.

Re: oxtar?

I had a pair of the original Oxtar TCS Goretex; looked very similar to the current TCS Sport Goretex. I liked them a lot when I got them but they only held up for a couple of years of year-round riding. A lot of the magazines here in the UK seem to rate them similar to Sidi/Alpinestars.
I replaced my Oxtars with a pair of Daytona Evos which completely changed my perspective on all other boots, I wouldn't buy anything else now. Pricy but worth it.
