and what I went on to say was best thing to do is go and try them all on then decide for yourself, you'll only get different answers on forums, lucky you haven't asked about what colour to get yet.

a blue Daytona with some stuff, but not all the stuff I want,

yet.......

If you arent wearing leather pants or a 1 piece that could be the problem aswell. most boots are designed to fit the leather pant legs inside the boot. I know dainese makes boots that are designed to wear the pants/legs on the outside so im sure the fit is more snug if you are riding in jeans.

Im just assuming you are wearing jeans since you are wearing a normal type of boot. that would look wierd, a 1 piece and some tan combat boots.

*edit* looks like coreyvwc beat me to this one, thats what you get for not reading the whole thread.

I own an older set of TCX SS's and Alpinestar S-MX R boots. I'm 6'1" and 170lbs with skinny calves.

The TCX's were good and allowed me to close them quite tightly. There still was some play in them, but it wasn't bad.

I bought the Alpinestars since I believed the ski boot style close would allow for a better fit. Although not too bad, I actually couldn't get them as tight as the TCX's.

TCX Competicione

They aren't terribly cheap (they are on closeout and STG) but they are narrow enough that I can barely get them zipped up.

Plus they have a pretty good adjustment system if they are too wide.

Also, not a full on protective boot, does anyone use/have these Alpinestars Harlem boots?:

They look like I may be able able to crank them down to my skinny legs! I don't even know if they have heel cups in them? Any rider experience with them would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Boots for skinny feet/legs?

Due to plantar fasciitis I was unable to walk. Upon getting my orthofeet shoes I have been able to keep my active lifestyle, even though i still have the plantar fasciitis. I would recommend these shoes to anyone who has foot problems. I have finally been able to control the pain
