I like to go over the top with gear and bought some MX boots, the SIDI crossfires come highly recommended....I cannot comment yet as I need to adjust the brake before I try using them, but they seem relatively comfortable new. I am using hiking boots now which probably wouldnt even stay on my feet if I went down on the highway, which I usually avoid, but take it enough to be concerned....so need to get those boots on, then I will see if they are somthing I will wear everyday commuting, or if I need a commuting boot as well.
Just switched from Sidi Adventure Goretex to Alpinestars Toucan Goretex. Tried the Toucan on at Atomic Moto here in Bend. Most comfortable motorcycle boot I have ever worn. Great right out of the box. Just did 5 days across the Mojave and they were fantastic. Great review and video at:
