Race Boots Question - March 30, 2012, 07:55 PM

Well, I got a nice set of Alpinestar S-MX Plus Vented boots in white from a beloved buddy of ours here. They fit perfect and would make a great riding boot however, I can't get the insides of my custom suits to fit in the boot so that I could zip it up. And I bought these specifically for the track. My old Sidi's however I was able to barely fit in there. So my question is from y'alls experience which boots would give me the most amount of room/adjustability in the calf area in order to fit my suit under the boots? Any help is appreciated. I really love these boots but can't make them work

This is a picture of the boots. Never worn (except to try on) and still got the tags on them.

Sidis are supposed to be the slim ones, and A* are supposed to be the bulker ones with more room. I found my Supertechs to be pretty roomy.

The best play here is to go to a dealer that has a lot of different boots in stock. Maybe have it altered at any leather shop... It's all under a boot anyway...

dude are you kidding me?? first, your leathers shouldn't be bagging up around your ankles. If they are they should be tailored up. Second, how gigantic have your calves gotten???

pics!

Feel your pain man.....I naturally have calves like grapefruits and making sure leathers/boots fit around them is always a concern. Hope you get it worked out.

I had plenty of room/adjustability in my Gaerne GRS boots, but I don't have massive calves and my leathers stop halfway between my ankle and the bottom of my calf.

I have big calves as well. My leathers only fit in my Sidi Vertigos because it has the an adjustable calf system on it. Also the Sidi Vortice has it as well.

Puma V1000s have a pretty healthy amount of calf adjustability.

you could try that as well, but they may have to add stretch panels to the cuff

That's actually I'm shooting for. It needs a panel added. This track day I ended up just electrical taping it over the boots my calves hurt so bad.
