Hey guys I've had :squid feet and my brain has finally gotten a message down to them to get some boots. I would appreciate any recommendations you can give me, I prefer something that looks more like a hiking or work boot and not overly expensive.

Thanx for any advise. :rolleyes

Oxtar Matrix Gore-Tex - totally waterproof, subtle and comfortable to walk in. Highly recommed. Usually can get them from www.newenough.com for ~$130..

+1. I got a pair this year. They're AMAZING. A little strange until they break in (after about a week) but after that, they ROCK.

+1 on the Oxtars - I LOVE my set. Just returned from my weeklong North Carolina road trip and ran into rain many times...especially the damn torrential stuff I hit on my return to Florida. Never did the Oxtar's leak, even when some of the roads made me do a boat impression on the bike.

I've been looking too. I thought the Sidi Sympatex looked good, the price didn't look as good as the Oxtars though.

I love my SIDI Vertigos. I don't want to wear anything else. They fit like a glove on me and it's good knowing I'm protected.

+1. They're $200 everywhere else, online and local brick and mortar. Or close to that. After one full season though my toes are getting some serious wear. However, they're cheap, effective, and are comfortable enough to wear throughout the day (great for wearing to work, very inconspicuous, IMO).

Welcome to the SBN! Let me be the first to welcome you!

I personally rock the Sidi Vertebra II boots. Confortable to walk around in (I wouldn't go hiking in them, I tried this and had a small blister on my baby toe). They don't really.... stand out while in a pair of jeans. (although when you are carrying a helmet and leather jacket, it's not like you don't standout in the first place.) I haven't crashed them, and knock on wood, don't plan on it, but I have read good things about them, and that was my basis for my decision to buy them.

Nope.

My feet like the feel of my Sidis a lot. They fit over leathers and under jeans equally as well.
Though I don't wear jeans while riding anymore.

I have a set of alpinestarts GP boots myself (no longer produced but their current boots look similar). They stink. The soles are falling off. I am currently wearing tennis shoes over them.

On the other hand, I lended them to a friend and he crashed in them... His feet were protected and they did hit, but I bet good work boots would have done just as well.
