What do you moto guys wear for boots? I over jumped a landing last weekend on my back and effed my ankle up pretty bad. Was wearing junky oneal boots so looking to buy new ones. Never had a good quality boot. Any one wear SIDI boots? Or the Gaerne boots?

My Sidi's are the best boots I have ever had. I have the crossfire 2 and they do run narrow. If you have a wide foot go for the gaerne

I like the looks and price of the Sidi boots. Not to mention the price isnt all that bad. How long have you had them? I dont wanna buy something that is gonna flex like shoes after a year like my O'neals.

I've had multiple pairs btw. They are great boots. And you can always send them in for resoling! (Not sure if the other manufactures also offer that)

My buddy just got the Tech 7s. I was looking at the Tech 10s but havent seen them in person. Not sure if they are bulky? I like a narrowish boots for shifting.

Im not sure if I would say they are the most narrow on the market but I've never had a problem with them as far as width. I would def recommend trying them on in person as I ended up with the size larger then I had in Alpinestar boots without the booty. My buddy has the Garene and loves them so its all just what ya get use to

Sidi, Gaerne, Alpinestars. All great boots. Stay away from the cheap stuff. It's time for me to upgrade as well.

Tech 7 fits my narrow foot really well.


I need 2 180mm and 2 141mm bogey wheels in all black.  Got any?  http://www.dootalk.c.../#entry13970153

I agree, spend a little money for a solid brand..

 

I've had Alpinstars Tech-7 and currently wearing Gaerne G-React

I ended up ordering the Sidi boots. Mid range on the price and am sure they are gonna be better than what I was wearing. Hopefully ordering a size big than normal they fit right. I guess Ill find out. Thanks for the help!

2 years. The soles are replaceable and you can do it yourself because they screw on and off.
