Id highly recommend trying to buy boots locally unless wherever You plan to buy it from has a fitment guarantee with no return shipping charges. Every boot is different. Some run a size small, some run a size big. If you have narrow/wide feet, big/small calves, etc... Then you really should consider at the very least fitting some locally. Two wheel toyz has a big selection of boots in stock.

Give Patrick a call, he might be able to give you a good deal anyway. It can't hurt.

I agree on trying on boots prior to buying. They might look nice in a pic, but might not fit like you want them to. I tried on several before buying my Sidi boots. I'm glad I didn't buy the first pair of boots I saw online.

Like everyone else has mentioned, go to two wheel toyz or motorcycles unlimited and allow them to help you make the best puchase for you. Lots of people dont think about foot protection when gearing up not realizing in the event of a crash, your shoes usually are the first thing to go. I like walking and working. I own Sidi's myself but also like the cortech latigo's at a good price point. Alpinestar smx-5 feel great for daily too.

2 Wheel Toys hooked me up with the Cortech Latigo Airs. Best. Purchase. Ever.
