Track Boot recommendatons - January 14, 2008, 05:12 PM

I need to get a pair of boots for track days. I've got short but wide feet and oversized calves. I tried a pair of Alpinestars s-mx4 boots at the moto show which would work but I would lie to hear about other brands. Particularly the Setup/Sidi boots.

thanks,
Hugh

I have the Side Vertigo Corsa Air and love them. I have wide feet also and these fit great. I wear 10 EEE New Balance shoes and got the Sidi's in a EURO size 44. You will want to try them on some were before ordering them. I think they are fixed pricing everywere also. I have wrecked in these boots and was really gla to have them on other wise I would have gotten a peg right thru my calf.

I have the Sidi boots. The Sidi boots are very sneaker comfortable and offer fantastic protection. Also it was important to me that the boots are easy to get on/off - Sidi uses a great zipper. Give a call to Sree at Motonekeo - he'll school you on the details.

+1...same size new balance, same size sidi's...they rock.

even the non-air's aren't that hot, even in the peak of summer, the venting is great (and I also ride when its colder, so non-perf is nice)

I have Sidi B2's for the street and the corsas for the track. IMO the Corsas are the best boot you can buy period. Keep in mind your feet are one of the first things to hit the ground so you want the best protection you can get. Same goes with your hands.

The Vertigo Corsas are NOT perforated where the Corsa Air are. Both are vented however, the AIR have a constant flow where the normal Corsas have vents you can open and close. Reason I bring this up is that on cooler days the air will require insulation where the regular Corsas have vents you can close. The Corsas are also fully adjustable so you can dial in to where you are comfortable. Worth the extra money you'll pay for them.

Either way my vote is for Sidi

I have sidi vertigo air and they are the best boots I've owned. They fit much better and are just all around better than my alpinestars

Well I wear size 15 or 16 with narrow feet and med calves. I worn Sidis a long time. But I switched to A star smx plus last year. I found it to be the most comfortable I've ever worn BUT a bit bulky

A bit bulky until broken in but awesome protection.
I ran over my foot at Road Atlanta. Ankle wasn't even sore.

Thanks for the feedback. Since Sidi's got such high marks from the fat calf crowd I ended up ordering a pair of Setup boots from newenough and they fit great.

Setup was Sidi's bargain brand which they're discontinuing since the dollar has tanked.

Sidi's make the best race boots/street boots around. I've been using them for the past 5 years.

The other company I'm looking at is Puma.
