Just ordered some real boots UPDATE *pics*

Check the latest post I made

==============================


After squiding it in my nikes I finally ordered Alpinestar GPS3 waterproof boots.

I'll post pics and impressions when they arrive. :)

Just wanted to share

As long as the gloves fit that I bought last night, and likewise with my A* suit I bought off ebay, that'll be my last thing I need to get on the track. Congrats

Did you try those boots on before buying? Do they fit like regular shoes?

Thanks 2 wheeled, unfortunately I didn't try them on first... our local shops don't have it so I'm going on faith.

But ridegear.com has a good return/exchange policy. Got fingers crossed that they'll fit :)

I just got my Oxtar TCS sport boots in the mail. I'm pretty happy with them. I hope you have some luck with yours also.
That's great man! Did your suit and gloves work out?

The boots are probably gonna be delivered to my job today or tomorrow.

Will post a pic later :)

Unfortunately the suit didn't fit, see signature. I'm not so sure about my gloves since they haven't got here. I ordered two different kinds in large, my usual size, so surely one of them will work. Now if I can just get someone to buy my suit, I'll be able to shop for another and be set...

Sorry to hear about the suit, mine is actually the opposite of yours....too big.

But I can get away with it at least I think I can.

Good luck selling your suit I'm sure you will find a buyer soon :)

Oh... yeah I heard a suit has to fit snugly so it doesn't move around in a crash.

I'm taking my chances with mine, but better than jeans I guess :)

Boots didnt' come in today, I think tomorrow for sure. :D

Here they are!





I like the boots, they are not as fancy or protective as I thought but it's not a full-on race boot...more for street.
The liner looks like it'll keep water out.

Full suit
