Own Sidi champion comfortable low cut boot which can be worn all day long under pants.
For longer trips have Sidi GT Sympatex comfortable boot which can be worn all day, with great water protection.

We just got in our shipment of Oxtar boots this week and they are really nice boots as well and still made in Italy. We also carry SIDI but I think some parts of the SIDI boot is now made in Romania. The Oxtar boots are the only boots that are actually CE-approved.

I now wear Alpinestars SuperTechs, but you can't go wrong with a pair of Sidis.
I had a pair of SuperTechs after my 3 pairs of SIDI boots and they were really good boots. I now have a pair of Frey-Daytona Winner boots and my new Oxtar EVO Replica RX.

I have two pairs of SIDIs myself. I have a low cut boot for normal commute and a high top race style one for twisties. SIDI & AlpineStars are the only two brands of boots I see most other riders out there riding with. I think they offer the best features and price for it's price range. If you have a little more money, you may want to look into Daytona boots.

That's because they've been in the market for a very long time and are very aggressive in their marketing. They also have huge budgets for sponsoring riders so they are the most visible. In Europe, there are many other good brands like Gaerne & Vendramini that aren't known here.

Frey-Daytona boots are awesome but the EVO Security is out of most people's price range.

According to Dyno he wants to wear them 24-7 they are that good.. I am buying a pair first chance I get..
Yes, I am wearing them now. They are awesome. My boss really doesn't care for them, but he's a Harley guy, claims they aren't appropriate for wearing around the office. All of their boots are pretty nice. I tried the cheap ones and each more expensive model was that much more comfy and that much more expensive. But I was finally suckered in to the top of the line Vertigo Corsa's. something about that scene from Misery and not having to walk with a cane in my 30's seemed appealing enough to shell out the big bucks.

Hmmm, exact figure illudes me, I wanna say like $360. Really it's not that much cash though. I mean it's like $180 per foot. Furthermore, only like $36 per toe. And seriously, wear can you buy a perfectly good toe for 36 bucks?!?!? Dirt Cheap actually, don't even know why I was complaining.....
