sell my SMX+ boots or get a street only boot?

So i havent been a track day yet, i bought these things hoping i would go, so i've worn them hardly at all. basically just a big trip i took to los angeles which was only a 3 day thing. I want to get a boot that I can wear around like to class or going to the store.

My question is: Do i keep these boots and get another set of boots that are waterproof and comfy to walk around in to places, keeping these for the track for next season?

or since who knows if i'll really get out there, should i just sell these and cut my losses and find a street only boot.

actually the boots are extremely comfortable, very flexible, insane amount of protection, and very breathable since they are vented.

looks like i shall keep boots for all fair weather riding and buy another pair of boots for cold/wet days.

getting them wet wont hurt em Just dont go wading in creeks with them which wont hurt em either but might take a bit to dry out .

I know what they cost my sidi's were about the same. I got the non perforated ones tho were I wouldnt have this problem lol.

You can fix that a couple ways. Pull out the ankle cup part and scuff it up a bit with some sandpaper. Then put a little lube on it and put it back in. No more squeaky.

I wear mine all the time and actually have gotten compliments from chicks on them! If you wear the right jeans over them,they look like white cowboy boots. I don't know but I think they and my Icon Field gears both look cool with the right jeans. Besides,when I'm out on my bike I always have my jacket and gloves and they're white so it all matches. Hey whatever everyone else wants to say women can be into guys that coordinate!

BTW fluck the squeak,I like being obnoxious!
