Recently I bought a pair of Alpinestars S-MX boots. I specifically chose a bit sporty boot to have a harrow tow so I can use the shifter.

But what I found out was that it's was pretty difficult to upshift in these boots. I adjusted the lever to be more "up" but then it's inconvenient to downshift.

Any thoughts? experience? ???

One suggestion is to change your gearshift around to the "GP" style. I've found that upshifting is so much easier when it's just a quick tap downwards. As far as downshifting goes, it's more of a deliberate thing for me, so I have the time to think about wedging my foot in there. Worked for me.
I'd include links to posts that dealt with this, but I'm on dial-up right now, and it's a pain in the butt. Try the search function - plenty to be had.
