I have a pair of Sidi Fusion's for my spirited rides but around town I wear my Alpinestar Fastlanes. Very comfortable and a good amount of protection.

I use Supertech Rs because the amount that they cost over a lesser pair of boots is negligible with the protection gains. The same argument can be made for all protective gear, but honestly what is most important? Safety and piece of mind = confidence and comfort :)

I just got a pair of the new A* SMX-6 (black/red) size 46 euro. great fit, very solid ankle stability. Should do well for Deals Gap or Trackdays...or any other ride!:smile:

Anyone here use the A* Supertech R perforated version and gotten caught in the rain? If so, how badly did your feet get wet? I know I want the Supertech R's but wearing them all seasons, trying to decide on more venting for summer when doing the most riding or those cold nights toward the end of the season and potential rain showers.

Alpinestars SMX-5 - Basic but comfortable. Lasted only 2 years before I had to retire them. The soles are too soft for everyday wear.
(yes I wear boots the whole time in the office)

Dainese TRQ race out - Good ankle protection. Simple and slim cut. So far no sign of parts wearing out too fast (about 10 months in now)

Clarks goretex high-cut boots - for slow rides; with a lots of walking after.

Going 4 years on a pair of Sidi STs, the one square screw receiver is almost completely out because the leather it was molded to separated but other than that they've been good boots.


Thinking of trying A* this time around and getting a waterproof/adventure style boot as well in addition to a partial race one.

I sold my SMX-6 and bought a pair of SMX-1R which is basically a short version of the SMX-6 and so far I love them. I use the bike almost exclusively on the streets, I may hit the track once a year, the long boots were such a hassle to wear everyday on a short commute.

As with the gentlemen above, I too most recently had Alpinestars SMX 6 boots, fantastic boot. I would call it race casual.

I have since moved up to the Alpinestars Super Tech-R due to the awesome sale that is ongoing with them.

I have the old version SMX-1 and they have been great. You can still get them on clearance in some sizes but the new version looks to be even better.

Dainese TRQ Race Out Boots... have had them right at 3 years now. Got them on discount from Revzilla so I was stuck with the non-ventilated boots in mostly white. They were the cheapest boots with the anti-ankle twisting safety feature. Not the most comfortable but the next size up was too big. I can go all day in them but wouldn't want to do a lot of walking around in them. Didn't care for the all white at first but it grew on me as I replaced my leathers with new ones with some white panels. Held up pretty well so far, had to have the zipper fixed on one as it came off the track but it was $5 at a shoe repair place. Having non-vented boots sucks horribly though.

When time comes I'll probably give the newer version of these boots a shot.

Alpinestars SuperTech Rs. Very comfortable, no break in, adjustable calf. Got the 2016 model for $260 from FCmoto.com about two months ago. If they still have that price, you won't find it cheaper anywhere else.

Sidi Mag-1 for 10k miles already. Super comfy, never have any foot fatigue no matter how long the ride. I tried on a few Dainese but they all had pressure points somewhere.

AStars SMX Plus and Dainese ALPHA D-WP (short) here.
Size-wise Alpinestars boots are a perfect fit to my wide feet. For other brands normally need to go 1/2 size or even 1 size up. Sidi boots never work for me.

I also have IXS GoreTex boots that I purchased in 2001 from Gold Coast Motorsports in NY, based on their recommendation. They definitely served me (still serving) well after 16 yrs beyond expectations, and I still wear them in cold weather.
