Don't know if you're kidding or not but just in case...

Those look like race car driver shoes. They offer no heel protection, no ankle restraint and little abrasion resistance.
On the other hand if your feet burst into flame you should be OK.
Not at ALL intended, or useful for, foot protection in a moto accident.

Why hello my thick legged friend

I wear A* Super Tech Ride Smart and SMX+s. The Super Tech Ride Smart are incredibly comfortable, like sneakers, on the inside. The calf racheting strap + accordian-leather near the zip is perfect for thick legged men such as ourselves

No pictures, just video...DEM LEGS.

Bob that looks amazing, do tell the story

boots are SOOOOO over rated... since i got ran over the swelling would have still been there but the infection that came from my ankle being smushed into the concrete would never have happened...

Sad thing is, I don't think he was. Do a search on cycle gear, compacc, motorcyclesuperstore, etc. for boots and you'll find hordes of this stuff. That's what I was talking about earlier vs. Steeltoes.
