Can anyone offer any feedback on the Diadora booots. I have worn Alpinestars for probably the last fifteen years and my current pair have just about had it. I went to a local shop yesterday and saw that the price for a pair of Tech 8's has gone up to almost $600 Australian. I have seen the Diadora boots advertised over here for a much more reasonable price. These boots look pretty good and seem to be of a decent quality. However they are fairly new to Australia I believe, and I do not know anybody who has been using them. If there is anyone on this forum who was been using them or knows someone who does, I would just like to know, a) What is the quality of the boot like and how does it stand up to abuse. Are they as well designed as they appear i.e. buckles, fit, protection etc. Thanks guys.
