I've got the Astars in the bottom pic. I don't have much to compare them to, but I love 'em. Don't want any surprises so you might want to check sizing out at cycle gear or something before buying them off ebay.

Look at newenough.com Not the sexiest boot but quick and easy removal for street riding. You can carry tennis shoes with you to change into

Setup, yeah i have these. You can order them from Motonation but if im not mistaken Patrick can get them for like 116 dollars, around that area, which is cheaper than online. I love mine.

thank you guys for your advice and concern,
I personally like the Sm4's "design and protection they provide"...if i wear size 10.5 on reg shoes "sneakers" and boots "timbs", i'm assuming that they will also fit me..otherwise i'll ve to sell em again...where is cycle world?, off 1960 huh?
