leather pants & boots

Hi Guys. I just bought a new pair of boot (Sidi Vortice) and a new pair of leather pants (Dainese Delta perforated). Anyways, the leather pant is tight so it can't go over the boot. I can only wear it inside the boot, but it's a little tight and uncomfortable with the boot over it. Is this normally how you guys wear leather pant/boot? Thanks.

Without being a smartass, no, it's not supposed to be that tight. It's supposed to be snug in fit as it will stretch out a bit as you wear it. If it's "tight" you need to return them for a pair that fit.

Typically most boots go over the pants.

Thanks Tom. The boot fit fine...It's very comfortable. However, when I put on the leather pant and the booth goes over the leather, it's kind of uncomfortable but not that bad. I guess I'll get use to it?

i've always thought it was the opposite, boots go over pants. in you pic w/ rossi, only rossi has pants over boots vs the other 2

had to ask my suit maker make mine go over the boot cuz my calves and leather wouldn't fit inside the boot.

Usually you won't notice the snug fit of the pant under the boot. I'd try loosening the boot clasp at the top if it's that tight. The main fitment concern with the pants is if it restricts movement and if it has poor flex from the fit. Other than that, you'll likely not notice any issues. Of course this is all assumption since we can't see what you're talking about.

Yes, boots usually go over the pants- that's what I posted above Ed. Rossi, Lorenzo, and a few others are wearing them pants over boots for the past few years, I guess it's a preference thing?

I think it's a little uncomfortable because the Dainese delta pant has a shin/knee guard sewed into the leather (non removable). I check my 1 piece Dainese suit (Laguna seca) and it also has one build in too. My other leather pant (Alpinestar bat pant) doesn't have the armor so it's good.

Most pants have the shin/knee guard, and they STILL go in the boot.

I have the exact same pants and boots and you are right.

THEY DO NOT FIT INSIDE THE SIDI'S LIKE OTHER RIDING PANTS.

The dainese delta pants have a very thick padded shin guard sewed in.
My theory is that these pants are designed to be worn over the boots. This does'nt work with all boots however. Dainese makes two kinds of boots.
Ones that go outside the pants, and ones that go inside the pants.
The ones that go inside the pants have a much tighter fitting upper part compared to the bulky upper of the SIDI's.

That sucks. I guess Rossi's influence has put Dainese in to this spot with design/ fit.

hey Thomas. Glad to hear from you. I finally bought that cbr from my cousin. He never rode it much and now he moved to Washington DC. I haven't been ridden myself much neither. I've been travelling a lot. Just came back from DC last week, going to London/Paris next week and Boston in June. Gotta take some time off to ride though...my 250 got 600 miles on it and the cbr got 150 miles on it only
