Depends on what you are doing with them. If you want boots to go exploring and walk for a while, don't get race boots (a* supertech). If you want to have full protection sacrifiyng some comfort get the race ones.
I think Pelochas did a thread about this topic a while back and there were interesting comments in there.

A*s here. I love them too. I can 2 step and salsa in them.

I can also fit my ankle braces inside of them; which is a necessity for me.

Sorry Jason, no noise out of mine either....

I have Supertechs and couldn't be happier. Well I could be if I had the Supertech Ride Smart.

Not a lot of folks choose the Supertechs/Ride Smart because of the higher pricepoint. However I have been wearing them for more than a year and about ~10K street miles without any problems.

I've got the Alpinestars S-MX R Boots ...... so far i'm still trying to break them in. I'm having a hard time "feeling" the bike. I just need to get use to them I guess

For every day riding I've got the Set-up boots and love them..... cheap too.

VisionBlack 600

I will buy another pair of the Set-ups
