Re: best race/road boots..

I just picked up a set of Teknic Speedstar boots. Once I learned to put the inner boot beneath my leathers I liked them. And they aren't shiny bling yo. In black they would look like tennys under jeans.

Try some on. The width varies some by brand and you may find some brands do not fit you good.

Very impressed so far with my Sidi Vertigo Corsas.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: best race/road boots..

The Alpine Stars are good to walk in-Oxtars and Sidi's are a little uncomfortable in comparison. Since you are using it mostly for the street-but still considering a race quality boot-which is a good idea in regards to protection-walk in a couple of the boots at the local retailer before you make a purchase.

Re: best race/road boots..

I picked up a pair of A*'s SMX plus from Abtech for a sweet deal on here. They are a comfortable to walk in and ride in for the street but I can't help you for the track though. But I am assuming since Abtech used them for racing a few times they are more than addequit (sp?).

My wife says the red ones I have are a little "blingy" for the street, but hey if they save my feet from a crash and I can walk away, who cares what they look like

Re: best race/road boots..

Have to say that Sidi's are the best boot I have worn for riding. They cost a bit but are worth it.

Would you swear to that in a court of law?

TB Beat me to it. I was going to say, "That's a pretty bold statement. Care to back that up?"
You can start be comparing them to the security boots.

Re: best race/road boots..

I need some new boots. My Sidi Vertebra boots have held up pretty well over the last 5-6 years (though I did break my heel while wearing them). Now they're starting to hurt my feet.

You need something a size bigger.

Absolutely. There is precedent for lying to a Grand Jury and getting off scott free, so thanks to such wonderful and perfect leadership examples I can feel good about doing the same.
