I hear Set-Up boots walk the line between cost and value pretty well.
Talk to Patrick if youre interested in more information on those, he'll take care of you

Yea I have tried Set-Up boots at my last track day. They are comfortable, but not to sure on the price. I just bought me a pair of Arlen Ness, fit great, and price wasnt bad.

I like Astar boots, but thats just my humble opinion. Either way Motorcycles Unlimited has you covered

Just an FYI: If you're dragging toe you're doing it wrong.

For cheap track boots try Fank Thomas or Setup.

Do your self a fovy and get the new Sidi vortice, they will cost several bucks, but you can replace parts and the sole. Plus protection is top notch.
Anyway, that is just my 2 pesos as Alrova says.

You can resole a vertigo too. Its just a little more difficult.

A* SMX Plus, lots of protection, mid-priced, and comfortable even @ M&G's.

Or Sidi B2's....helluva lot cheaper than vortice, etc...

The B2's aren't really the best for track use as far as protection.

I'd recommend the Sidi Vertigo, the Alpinestar SMX series, the TCX or the Joe Rocket.
We keep the Sidi and Joe Rocket in stock, and can get the others in 1-2 days and offer an MH discount comaparable / less than what you'll find them for online, plus we guarantee fit.

Oh yeah, forgot about Vertigo!

The Sidi's and A* both have replaceable parts too.
Patrick, do you carry these parts in stock??? I need some!
