I purchased the alpinestar mx4s from North Honda. they r great; so light weight and have great flexiblity. Much more comfortable then the water proof hiking boots I wear from time to time(both alpinestar boots weight less then one hiking boot.)

Got mine for $100 Brand new. They crashed really well, no problems with ankles or anything

The boots may be stiff the first few times, but once you start riding with them, you will wonder why you EVER wore tennish shoes, etc.

My SIDIs were ready to go out of the box. I like that over the break in time for the A*s I had before.

i have A*'s now and am not real impressed with them. My sidi' are pretty much trashed but as new, they were just fine and always were comfy to wear even when not riding.

I've crashed in my Sidi Vertigo's and my plain ole Doc Martin's.....both held up very well......no ankle injuries or anything with either. And I'm still wearing the Docs, today as a matter of fact.
