I was think sidi or alpinestar but wanted to get some feedback from some of you guys... So if you have a favorite brand/model let me know.. I'm getting tired of looking like a half assed power ranger in my leathers and Icon motorheads...

i have been looking at the sidi's and at these:
oxtar boots

we have tried group buys on both...the oxtars didn't raise enough interest and the sidi's thread disappeared from the group buy section a couple days ago

+1 on the Sidi Vertigos - draw backs are they are a little flashy for street riding (look sort of like moon boots) and are expensive. Mine are blue silver and red, and I get a few stares when I am walking through the mall...

Go with a real boot and not a stunt shoe like I first bought.

Far more protection and comfort.

Have a pair of SIDIs and think they are great. Also have a pair of ICONs that I wear for a more casual look.

My Alpinestar SMX-R's are GREAT but a little pricey at $259. I have the perforated version and they make an enormous difference in hot weather. With thin Coolmax socks I can actually feel wind blowing across my toes while I'm riding! Anybody who has peeled off sweat-soaked boots and socks after a ride will appreciate what a miracle cool feet are!

These are mine-



Something worth checking out is the Setup brand which is owned by parent company Sidi. Look like good boots but entry-level as far as pricing at $129.



Good-looking boots.

Ditto.

I don't have the Vertigos but I love the ones I do have! (Yeah, I've forgotten which daym model I bought!)

Get them from newenough.com. You'll be glad of it.
