still trying to upgrade my riding gear. i am looking for some new boots now. i would like a boot that could preform as a sport boot, and touring boot. it would be nice if they were comfortable to walk in as well. i would like to know what you guys are using.
Most problems in life can be fixed... Stupid isn't one of em'.
I have a pair of the Aplinestar Supertechs - And I love them ! Best fitting boot Ive even had on my foot ! Ive personally crash tested them , the bike fell on my lt. leg mid apex and I walked away without any injuries. The new generation are alot less racerboy looking, so, Id think they would make a great everyday boot -
I also have a pair of the Aplinestar SMX - The supertechs feel better, but, these are better for colder months.
I have far too many boots, but I wear only two at present.
Thor 50/50 boots for everyday, and Alpinestars Tech2 for extended trips.
I used to swear by the Alpinestars Ridge (No pun intended) boots. They were Gore-Tex lined, taller than most and looked like a plain black boot. I was turned off when the sole wore a couple holes in it after about a year of nearly daily use and I can't replace 'em. I also did not like that Astars neglected to put a shift patch on the left boot. That really makes a difference in the wear and tear.
Whatever you choose, change out the insoles for the Superfeet Green and your feet will thank you every time you slip your boots on.
