You are so gellin like Magellan. And yeah i have big feet, size 14 and their wide too. So i usually wear my shoes, havent tried with my boots yet. Well see. And i like the "go by and kick" idea. Fun stuff.Gas Man said:If I plan on doing more hanging out than seroiusly riding I wear a pair of Red Wings steel toe 6 inch work boots. Why not, they offer lots of protection and the steel toe helps kick in doors of a-hole drivers that cut me off. Go by and kick!!!
I also sometimes will wear my race boots with jeans. And of coarse I wear them when I'm in leathers. A pair of Joe Rocket Speedmaster full race boots with a set of Dr. Scholls Gel inserts...
Yes I be gellin!!!

:withstupi Especially on rides to work. That's when the Sidi's go one. Going locally to Menards or whatever, I wear hiking boots b/c they're more comfortable to walk around in. The feel's greater in the Sidi's, but as stev pointed out, its not really that necessary.stevnmd said:I wouldn't wear shoes that didn't completely cover my ankles. No way, no how... Do you want to see pictures showing WHY?
Riding boots. EVERY TIME I ride. No exceptions. Riding to work, I just throw a pair of shoes in my backpack and take them with me.
You do not need to FEEL your controls with your feet. After about 20 miles I'd hope that the location of the foot controls on your bike is second nature to you and not something you actually need to feel for!
