Boots you find comfortable

Sidi boots have worked out well for me.
Wear Sidi GT Sympatex for longer trips and back road ridding.
Sidi champion's work out well for times you are on and off bike, also when you want to wear jeans over boots.

I have 3 pairs of boots. I have a pair of Motoboss street/track boots, a pair of Alpinestars SMX+, and a pair of Icon Super Duty boots. I used to wear the Motoboss boots most of the time, until I bought the Icons. They are much better for around town. Track would have me in the SMX+.

OxStar here. The make nice sparkes when you drag you toes in the corners. They very comfortable while riding but if your not a racer I wouldnt advise them because they keep your ankle bent in such a way it is hard to walk in. But I have a couple off's in them and they have held up pretty good.

That's what I have. .

I also have some regular Icons for just around town. But, the SIDIS have so much more protection I don't like riding w/out them anymore.

The SMX+ are great boots for the track. If you are doing mostly street, I'd get the Sidi boots between those two.

Check out my SMX+ review here.

I got a set of Joe Rocket speedmasters. I got them a half size too big and put a set of Dr. Scholls gel inserts in them for added comfort. They're nice....

I use the Alpinestar SMX +'s as well, I find them comfortable and durable, my only beef with em is that you sound like rusty ol bedsprings walkin around in em... squeak squeak squeak...every step you take..

Does it make the boot feel tight around the rest of the foot with them in? I have tried that before and on some it makes it tighter and more uncomfortable then it should.

No, not at all. That's why you buy them a half size big!

I *always* wear orthotics from the good feet store in all of my boots. In fact, I have them in the Icon Super Duty's on my feet right now!
