AXO Primato Sport Boots

24y9wt1

These boots caught my eye the other night. I thought I'd pass the info along. I see them going for $135. Not bad I guess. The construction looks good for the most part. The only thing that gets my attention is the thickness of the bottom sole. Looks like there's good potential for them to seperate at the sole. . . Anyways, just passing the info along. I've given you enough info, google it if you want more.

Description:

Light and simple construction for maximum performance
Shock and abrasion resistant
PU molded shin
Calf and heel protectors
Replaceable heel cap, shin sliders and toe sliders
Rubber sole, removable foot bed insert
Steel shank insert

These and other similar boots are little more protective than ordinary leather boots.

There needs to be an ankle restraint system for motorcycle boots to prevent too much ankle movement in a violent crash.

Save yourself some money and just by some cheap work boots, or else, spend the money to save your feet and buy actual racing gear.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
Once I started wearing racing boots, I never turned back.
Someone needs to buy a pair of these and give a detailed review on them
I have some AXO GP gloves but their nothing special. They are showing their wear like cheaper gloves tend to do but nothing coming apart. . yet.
, I miss my motogp gloves

We can get the boots and match that price.
Note, they are closeout items, so size / color availability is limited.

IMO, while they're better than tennis shoes, there not exactly a very protective boot.

There are many other alternatives available between the $200.00 - $300.00 range that are much more protective.
The difference in price is much LESS than foot surgery / a cast.

I understand, and like I said, I can match the price, I'm just giving my observations so people can make an informed decision.

My father in law greg ordered the primatos in red/blk from motorcycle closeouts for $119.99

it should come in at the end of the week, so i'll update on how it feels in comparison to my gaerne gr-s boots since we're the same boot size.
