I don't wear wrangler boot cuts... just Nautica loose fitting style over sidis and AStar shin/knee gaurds. Everday.
It's great in the cold... and last summer I just never quit wearing them. Yeah, hot sometimes, but I'm accustomed to it now.

Yes. For street riding, I wear Sidi Fusion Air boots and have worn jeans, over them, a number of times. Have since given up jeans, for something more protective, but the jeans went over the outside of the boots, no problem. Walking in them was not an issue, as long as you are not talking about a day at the mall, or something.

Thanks bro.

This was last week. All my wounds have healed except the left knee, and by tomorrow I shouldn't have to bandage it. The left foot looks and feels like it's still in the same condition and is taking much longer to heal.

I would take 10 rashed up knees instead of the 1 wound on my left foot. Getting socks and shoes on in the morning is a real pain in the lol.

I can wear my alpinestars street boots all day long, comfortably, and they are 1 size too big for me. I also ride them in the dirt, and have done a few 1-2 mile hikes in them on rocks and they are fine. I just put the first hole in the sole after 2 years of use, and that was from a pointy peg on a race bike. From what I've heard other brands have soles that wear out quick, but I have been very impressed with the A-Stars from Cycle Gear. I'd buy again in a heartbeat, and will.

i have two pair of riding footwear, some Sidi B2 and some A* one o one. If I am going to ride someplace I plan on walking I will probably wear the A*'s. If I am going for a ride only day the Sidi get worn. If I am going someplace like work, the gym or other place with extended time off the bike i wear the Sidis and bring the right footwear for the day.
My Sidi's cost too much to wear the soles out walking around on. I am not made of money, I want to be safe, but I have bills to pay and other things I want.

I wore mine to the airshow (sidi st air). Never again. We went to the zoo yesterday, and I put some running shoes in my wife's car so I could change when we got there.

I use Dainese Axial IN for that purpose. They are designed to fit UNDER your suit/Leather pants so they work perfect with boot cut jeans

I wear the same Dainese boots and love them for that reason. They are so comfortable inside the suit.

I wore mine for almost two straight years, every day, from sun up to sun down.....and sometimes after dark to keep my feet warm. Since they were waterproof, they were perfect for river washing my coffee press and mug. , come to think of it, they were a great aide in cleaning the cooking gear and eatware.
