Wtf boots!

So I found a nice pair of boots to wear...tech 2 alphinestars...but I go for a ride and these things are like XBOXHUEG. I can hardly shift at all, and now I have to take them back.

I wear a size 13 shoe, funny thing is...these fit nicely with a size 11 but the toes are so big they are impossible to shift with.

Any recommendations for a good sport bike boot? Clearly these weren't made for fast agile shifts. Feels like I'm shifting with rain boots on X_X

Re: Wtf boots!

No, I mean the toe section is so tall, I can hardly fit it between the shifter leaver and peg.

Re: Wtf boots!

You could try just moving the shifter round a bit

Re: Wtf boots!

Alpinestars SMX 5 are great, comfortable the second you put them on.

I tried to find a way to move the lever, but I couldn't find a way to adjust them, maybe I'll take another look at the shifter...

Always thinking outside the box.

I'm still wondering why you would accomodate an uncomfortable boot by moving the shifter.I would just want a comfortable boot.
