I have the vertigo I think, I liked them better than the A* but you might want to try them on. Different ones on cause different strokes for different fokes. Im picky with shoes cause I have wide flinstone feet

I think what ever boot you get needs to have an ankle restraint system.
Many so called "racing boots" are just fancy looking, overpriced boots with toe sliders.
To really protect one of the most fragile joints you have, the boots need some mechanism to stop to much ankle movement.
One of my friends crashed at TWS (Texas World Speedway) 1 1/2 years ago, smashed the out of his ankle and is now recovering from his SECOND set of surgeries.
Without ankle restraint you might as well be wearing Red Wing work boots and save yourself a couple hundred bucks.

I wear the big boy shoes not children size. They are the old school gangster puma's the ones that the bottoms are flat and the tread wraps over the front and the back.
