I'm sorry I love my Astar SuperTechs. Crash tested mother approved. I have wrecked 3 times in mine and they are still in good shape. T1, T3 & T4 all at TWS (Texas World Speedway). Some easy crashes...some not so much, but I walked away from all of them. Unless Patrick talks me out of them , I'll be getting a new pair of Supertechs soon.

I use sidi's. I got rear ended 1.5 years ago and the exhaust came up and whacked my heel. I ended up with a bruised heel and lost the toenail for awhile but the boots held up fine. I think the impact would have shattered my heel had I been wearing regular shoes.

I've used sidis and A*. For me, the A* were a bit cumbersome (I had the SMX Plus). Sidis seem to fit my foot better. I've crashed them a couple of times and have had no ankle/foot problems.

I wear through my soles each season. According to the Sidi folks you can't resole their boots and ensure the integrity of the boot in case of a crash. A* will resole their stuff, but you'll have to pay postage & repair costs.

I'm cheap & have made it through a few races/trackdays with some JB weld sealing the holes that have been worn through by the pegs
