Shopping in "average price" boots , I've been able to see that the alpinestar are narrower and did not like it so I went with the Gaerne RX2 boots. They are very comfortable and very well built (of course it's a gaerne boot) for the price.

Anyway in the biggest doofis move ever, I was drying my Sidi's out by the dwindeling fire, I thew a skid of wood on the fire and went to the neighbors camp site to have a few beers and came back to find my Sidi boots horibly melted, I thew them into the fire I was so sick looking at the damage
Anyway, I shoped around and Ended up with the top of the line AXO boots (not sure the model #) And I love them to death! They were not that much $ and the best boots I have ever had. I have very large calves (bike rider) and they fit well and still taper and seal the water out at the top. They have jell inserts in the back of the calf, the heal cup, and in the shin pad to from to in the boot knee braces and guards. They are very light and comfy and stay VERY dry and warm. I tried on the Alps and I would not waste my $ on those things, they are nice but not worth the $$ IMHO. Also alot of the MX race boots have breathable panels in the side that ARE NOT water prof! so when they say vent, or breathable, be warry! I can stand in a crick in My AXO's and stay dry, the only way water gets in them is if it wicks down my pants. They dont have liners but I were seal skin socks if its wet out anyway.
