Riding Boots

My existing boots are junk. I went cheapie and bought a pair of vega's, and like the old adage goes, " You get what you pay for... "

I'm open to all suggestions for replacements. I commute daily, and wear full textile gear, if that makes any difference.

I bought some Vega's as well :confused1

Holding up good so far only wear is on the left toe from shifting.

I'll invest in some good ones when I have the money. But hey at least I wear boots.

The entire front of the sole is peeling off the toe of my left boot. I figure if they're put together that poorly, woe to me if I ever go down... They'll probably disentigrate in 5 feet.

you would be a 9, which is dress shoe fit. motorcycle boots have lil to no padding like dress shoe.

my sneakers are 9.5/10, my dress shoes are 9.

setup visions are nice, i had those till i upgraded.

wearing some oxtar now. also a good choice along with sidi or alpinestar.

Man I have been having a of a time finding the right boots. I have been all over town and seems like most places have one or two makes and no sizes. The A* plus seem to fit well but very bulky I thought. Patrick do you have a few sizes from 10 1/2 to 9 to try on? If so I will come take a look.

Exactly. Get SIDI veritgo. Crashed 3 times with them on and no foot or ankle injuries. Cut back somewhere else boots are TOO important. Take a look a Falacia's foot(sorry Falacia)

Yes,
We usually carry both the B2 and Vert Air in sizes 8.5 to 13 in stock.
If that's not the models you're interested in, once we get you properly sized, I can order and get in any other boot you might want it 1-3 days.
Don't forget to ask for your MH discount!
