What do you guys recommend for good riding boots?

Usually I ride with my Sketchers low rise leather boots that I wear to work. They offer no support.

I recently got a Competition Accessories Dot Com catalog and saw that there are Joe Rocket Orbit, Oxtar Jupitor and even the Joe Rocket Phoenix shoes.

I sort of like the Orbit boots. I think I want those and the Joe Rocket Steel Jeans in black.

Any other suggestions?

A friend of mine got the Joe Rocket Orbit boots and likes them alot. Says they are very comfortable to wear on and off the bike. I wear a size 13 and the biggest size they have is 12. I still don't understand why they don't make a 13.

Bates Enforcer Tactical Sport Boots. Breathable nylon mesh upper (you can FEEL the wind!), good feel on the foot controls, excellent heel shape, zip on and zip off (I've tied mine only once). Truly the most comfortable protective street-riding boot I could imagine, shown here in the 8-in upper, but available in a 5-in upper. Google it for the best prices. I bought mine on sale at Sears for $69 in the 8-in upper. The soles don't wear as well as they should, but they are the shiznit for comfort and feel on the rearsets. Take it from me.

Those are the baddest boots so far. They look sweet and comfortable. And for $50!

Okay, not to pipe in here as an expert, but I just visited a guy that works for me. He was in a motorcylcle accident the same day I picked up my bike (within about a half hour of it too). He was in the hospital for about 4 days and had about 3 surgeries to repair his ankle. Right now he has two half inch "pins" (more like bolts) through his shin bone and another through his heal bone.

A car pulled out in front of him and he did some hood surfing, landed on his foot and twisted it around. He was wearing Timbs, but did not have them laced and tied (DUH!). He says that his first purchase after healing is in a good set of reinforced riding boots. In his opinion he would have walked away from that accident had he been wearing the proper gear...properly.

In addition a sweet R1 was lost along with his right Timberland boot, which was cut off by the paras.

I'm checking out those Icons!

I also wear size 13 and ICON has a size 13, but their boots and clothing are about one size smaller than you normally wear.

I would not recommend getting military style boots with nylon sides. They are much better then any shoe, but the nylon sides won't protect from, say, a peg going into the ankle. Leather, kevlar and the hard plastics are mo bettah.
