Riding Shoes/Boots

So I just bought the Sidi Gas "shoes" to replace a pair of way-too bulky and warm riding "shoes" I bought a couple years ago.

These are perfect for running errands around town and short stints on the highway. I only wore them around the house a bit and for a short jaunt to the grocery store but I already know these are great low profile boots for walking around and especially hot days. They are super lightweight and very comfortable.

They don't give the level of protection I want for riding hard in the twisties, but for "street" shoes they are great.

They do run large, I normally wear a 9, but in these I ended up with a 7.5.

I'll give an update after I've worn them in a bit but so far, two thumbs up!
