Herb,

Shoes are too cool for you.

Thanks, D. I'm looking at new boots and the "boy racer" look doesn't cut it. (Not at 50, anyway!!) I'll have to check these out.

I wish more manufactures understood not everyone likes the plastic look. It seems difficult to find good looking engineer boots that are not extremely tall or lugged. H-D makes some nice ones, but then you have to buy the HD logo too $$.

Thanks for the tip.

I'd like to find something besides my Acme Ropers for riding in. They're very comfortable, and work well for riding, but I'd like something a little more 'on purpose'.

I paid obscene $ for a pair of Dainese TCI boots, and they don't scream 'boy-racer'. However, I find them uncomfortable and they seem to become more and more difficult to remove every time I wear them. I'm afraid if I put them on one more time, I'll need a box cutter or dynamite to get them off. High instep or something...

Nick,

Try a boot jack ;)

I really like Aerostich's Combat Touring boots. They're on the Aerostich website, check them out. I've met two people who've had them and they were absolutely in love with that boot. They look badass, too, minus the dreaded boy racer factor. They'd go well with your speedway suit, too ;D

I've also heard good things about the Aerostitch boots, but with laces they would take forever to get on and off. I've got some jump boots I wear once in awhile and my only gripe is the time to get them on and off.

Lots of cool stuff on that Aerostich site. Thanks for the tip.

But correct me if I'm wrong, don't I have to ride a BMW to wear Aerostich stuff? ;D

Another alternative - I've got some Alpinestars GPS boots in black. They fit under jeans or look OK outside of my leathers. Don't have the plastic racer look. I specifically got them in black to avoid that flashy look. A good basic sport touring boot.

I've worn them as much as 12 hours at a stretch at trackdays where it's an equal mix of riding and clomping around looking at everything. They are comfortable enough to wear all the time. Fairly easy on and off. And they have ankle protection. Fairly cheap, too. I think I paid MSRP of about $189 last Fall.

My favorite Boots are the SIDI Champion, water proof, nice looking, you can wear them with jeans and they look great.
Good value also at $180.00 New. 8)

" My Python boots were too tight,
I couldn't get em off last night,
A week went by,
Now it's July,
I finally got em off and my girlfirend cried,

You got Stinkfoot"
