I think they look good, but......

as serious cycle boots, they are NOT tall enough
to fully cover above the ankle, which is what they
need to do. I think the best boots out there now
are the AlpineStar SuperTech boots, followed by the
SMX Plus, which is what I got 2 yrs ago, when they
were the top of the AlpineStar lineup. Both of them
have an inner lace up bootie, to help stabilize and
protect the ankle during a crash. Check 'em out at:

only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the
American public.” -Theodore Roosevelt

I agree, I don't think they are tall enough for propler protection. I found a pair of boots that were $149 and they are gore-tex. Oxtar is the manufacturer from italy and Motorcycle consumer news ranked them very high in a comparison.

Just some food for thought.

I agree, they should be taller. I wear my Sidi Vertebrae boots every time I ride. Other boots just dont feel right.
