I wear A* Supertechs every day I ride....had them for a couple years now, looking to upgrade to the R's.


Question for those of you who work in an office setting...what do you wear? Currently, I ride into work and bring my dress shoes with me in a backpack and change when I get to the office....

Round of applause, you guys have done a good deed. I will be on the look for ridding boots.

Alpine is pretty popular, but do they make the best boots? how about Sidi?

I've got a set of Diadora race boots, and they are pretty comfortable. I get decent feel on the pegs, and just enough movement for comfort. They squeak though, loudly.

For work I have a set of A*s calf-height boots. The ankle protection is inadequate, but they have a full heel cup and reinforced toe. Better than nothing, but I'm on the lookout for a boot that offers more protection and won't make me pack my shoes separately.

Both are good choices.
There are others as well. I have Oxtar but they changed to something else. I
'll see if I can find the new name. Technic Chicanes are a good choice. look around, remember ankle restraint and heel protection.

Oxtar is now called TCX.

Those TCX boots are track ready. They have all the qualities and safety features I would like in a boot, except they are not so much in the comfort zone if you're gonna be doing some walking (which us riders shouldn't be either way). heh.
Very nice boot, definitely something I want when I get into track racing, but I'm looking something for street ridding first.

I can't say for sure about those boots but I have Oxtar which is the predecessor to TCX. My boots are race boots and I have walked all day in them and had no comfort issues.
Try on boots you are considering and don't pass on boots because they look like "track" boots. If they are uncomfortable then, obviously they aren't gonna work but not all race boots are uncomfortable.
I'm just saying, some race boots are more comfortable than you think and will often give better protection than "street" boots. They might be more expensive but if you're gonna spend $175+ on a pair of boots, might as well get the good .

I picked up a set of Cortech Latigo from 2 Wheel Toyz. Been real happy with them. Very good price as well.
