Riding Boots/ What works?
Posted September 25, 2000 - 06:56 PM
I need some advice. My old alpine stars (circa 1974) have finally worn out. I tried out the Alpine 8, 6, and 4. Then I tired the Thor T-120s, Fox and something else. What I noticed was the nice expensive motocross boots are solid, but inflexible and a bit heavy. Meanwhile, the cheaper botts were the exact opposite...light and comfortable (comparable to the old apline stars). I think the cheap stuff has better traction on the soles and would be easier to manuaver use in techincal stuff.
What works for you? Cost is not an object. Functionality for long hot dual sport rides is.
Thanks for your thoughts

I have Tech 7s that have broken in pretty nicely. Plenty comfortable for 300 miles/2 days down in Baja. I just wouldn't want to have to hike out in them.

The crack went directly down the area where the two colors were molded together. The colored patch was about 4” long by 1” tall. This effectively made both boots air cooled which was nice in the summer but bad in the wet winter.
I now have a set of the top of the Foxes and they seem to work very well other that the buckles like to be difficult at times.
