are 'superduty and chukka boots' the same?

im buying some new riding boots, and these two look the same, so i dont know if the Icon Field Armor Chukka and the Icon Super Duty 2 are the same or not...they look like it. the only think i see is the leather pattern...anyone with 1st hand exp?

Anyone know? and if they are different, which one is easier to shift gears in? I tried the Icon Field Armor Boots on at the dealership....and they are onsale for 90$$$$$ but thats still wayyyyyyy too much to pay for the most impossible boot to try and shift......i could not even feel the break or shifter.....

SUPERDUTY-






And Chukka

Yes, they are the same...why?
Because both models do not offer any real ankle protection. By the way, shoe laces are not a good thing while riding a motorcycle.
You should look into a taller riding boot IMO.

Looks like the Chukka boot has more plastic or rubber on it and has a weird heel area. I don't have any experience with these. I tried some on and they did cover my ankle. for around town riding I wear Skechers black or brown boots.

+ 1 on little ankle protection, get like a mid calf boot, and tell your ankles how much you love them

Heres some that are plain, but good protection... It's worth spending some dollars on boots, they;ll last you a long time, and you'll be glad you spent the money if you go down...make sure along with the boots you have a good helmet and other gear. It'll be money well spent!!!
