I think several people here have them. I have the Vertebre 2 in black and they are very nice! You can adjust ALL the sliders toe, calf, and ankle. At the rear top you can adjust the width to snug it down to your calf size which is very nice. Easy entry and removal. VERY COMFORTABLE, I wore them the day I got them at work and didn't even feel irritated. I stand on my feet ALL day and my feet were praising me that day. Walking is easy tho limited ankle movement. Once I had to move my stick-shift car with them on (not recommended! ) The armadillo plating protection at the rear is nice tho they squeak after being worn a few times. Sidi recommends to lube that area with WD40 when it squeaks and it sure does the trick! I LOVE them and flipnr6 must as well 'coz he tried to walk out of my house with them on

Thanks...........Sidi's it is!.......And by the way Sidi seems to be one of a very few companies making boots that make anything larger than a 12. Damn these big ass feet.......damn them!!!!!!!!

I just bought a pair of Sidi boots today from MFI. I like how they have so many replaceable parts.

I usually like wearing my sidi sympatex boots. They are the best boots I have ever had. They are also the most confortable. They are 100% waterproof. I got them from Bobs bmw in Laurel. They do not have any armor, they are just good old touring boots

I also have Sidi sport boots. THey have armor and are much better for racing, but i do not like zipping them on the sides. I like the velcro that the sympatex have.

I also have Oneal mx boots, they are the best protection I have ever had on a pair of boots. They are mx, so they are also really tall. THey really limit the feel of changing gears on a sportbike, they are also bulky.

Joe rocket boots suck, I have 2 pairs of them, and I usually end up throwing them away.
