Well, thought I would give the Cortech Latigo Air RR Boots a shot. Ordered them tonight, and should be here by the weekend, I hope. Although the Alpines held up well enough in my low speed off, I did get the peg in the shin. I can't imagine how bad that would have been if I had been going much faster. Ever since TwoWheeledWonder pointed them out to me at the beginning of this thread, I have been keeping an eye on 'em. Have seen many good reviews on them, so it should be a definite upgrade.
As for the Alpinestars...we have a 300' sandstone mountain in the middle of town that I grew up climbing on as a kid. I'll bet the soles would be pretty good for climbing that.
