Any reviews on the Joe Rocket Pro Street Boots

I been google'n the Joe rocket Pro Street Boots but yet to find any reviews. Other boots i had in mind were the Alpinestars smx 1 boots and the octane boots also. i probably want to spend around $150. do you have any other recommendations? i would really like a place to try out the boots in person.

Since you're already spending that much dough, just by the full boot. Your ankles will thank you!

+1, your ankles are a to recover from injuries. I am still paying for it, although it was a car accident but broke a few parts. Ankles is one of those that you will not recover 100% mobility, well i haven't heard of anyone.

there are several sidis and dainese that are not as bulky as race boots and offer great protection, check with Patick, i think he carries sidi's on stock

The Sidi's are the most comfortable, and lightest to wear all day long. I stand in mine for hours a day at the track, and it's like wearing your favorite pair pair of tennies. They fit under your jeans well also.

Talk to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited, he will guarantee fit!

I have the prostreet boot. They are ok, but if I had it to do all over again I would have gotten something more substantial. Like my Pumas. (I guess I did do it all over again)

The SMX1 boots were nice. I almost bought those but like several have mentioned, I decided I wanted more ankle protection so I went with a full boot from Dainese.

i think i have found my boot...though its still a joe rocket boot the super streetbike model has more ankle protection but its under $150 shipped, my max budget. well its not really a budget just a number i came up, if there were a boot at a cant pass price that doesnt go way beyond $150_$200 with shipping i would like to know. wished the sidi b2 was about that price. newenough has a TCX boot for $180 but i dont know how well it will perform. i really wish to wear the boot and feel comfortable enough to walk around.
