Puma 1000 V1 or V2...Opinions - April 24, 2009, 07:40 AM

Has anyone run these boots on track or street? I just want to make sure that they are worth the money if I pick them up.

Also, does anyone have opinions on the difference between the V1 and V2? I know there are some comfort issues they worked but I wanted to know if there was anything else.

The other boots I'm looking at are the Sidi Vertigo which are at the same price point.

^^^Thanks for the input. Why do you rock the Sidi's on the street? Are they not comfortable on the track?

Thanks for you input. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on a great deal on the V2s which were on sale then I found a coupon for the store on line that brought it to $255 shipped.

They'll be here tomorrow! I'll post up a review after my May 15th trek to VIR North.

I like the Pumas but I'd want a perforated set which they don't make.

Someone told me that they are a little bulky up top and you might have trouble wearing jeans over them (if you ride in jeans that is)

I'm an elitist track only snob so no worries about jeans for me

Even when I did ride on the street I never wore jeans (too many after crash pics of shredded jeans and roadrash)

So I got the boots last week and I tried them on. They run a little tight in the ankle area but I am hoping that they will loosen up a bit. Other than that they are pretty comfortable and flex pretty well in the ankle area.

BTW - I have chicken legs so guys with bigger ankles (or cankles) may want to look elsewhere for a boot.

The soles are pretty stiff so walking is a bit awkward but that may change after a good hard day of riding on track.
