Icon makes soeme really nice one's. I forget the name, do a search, they look like regular boots I am getting a pair this winter for sure.


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!

You can also go to Coleman's or where you like to see what kind of boots they have. You will be able to tell the normal riding vs the racing style boots right away...

check out www.kneedraggers.com as well.


Wow. Just..................wow.

Just some examples... check the site out for all of the boots they carry. Keep in mind when picking something out- it's not just about the look of the boot. It is to protect your ankles and what not... so make sure it does just that. Anything below the ankle is pointless. (just my opinion)

Icon SuperDuty 2. I like them a lot. And they aren't really too sportbikish in case you have to wear them around somewhere.

The features like the shifter nubs are kind of a joke. I've never understood shifting patches because everything wears down after a long enough time.

The strap is nice because they make them easy on and off. I usually don't even tie them unless I have to walk around a lot.

gaerne makes nice boots as well. if you don't mind waiting, you can probably find good deals on boots at the the int'l bike show that will come to town in jan. 06. i got a black pair of zac (italian-made) which are comfortable as shit and provide great ankle protection.

I have a well-worn pair of these Oxtars that I wear on a daily basis. They're made with Goretex and keep out the rain very well.

Alpinestars Effex. Waterproof (-able; Gore-tex, the leather still needs conditioning and sealing), fairly light, good protection (shins, too) and controls feel, and easy to break in for walking around. They also look decent under street pants--nice to not have to bring along regular shoes if I'm only going to be at a client site for an hour or three. A friend of mine has the Oxtar Matrix boots; same theme, but a little stiffer and harder to break in.
