    Boot Suggestions?

    I have a pair of BMW Allround boots that need to be replaced. Any other candidates for a comfortable boot with more protection?

    Thanks in advance!

    Aerostich Combat boots

    sure fill the bill - especially for Dual Sport riding.

    I just bought a pair of Sidi Onroad Gortex boots at Bob's BMW. I like them so far. I thought that, being Italian, they'd be on the narrow side, but such was not the case. In fact, I took a 42 in these whereas the Aplinestars Web Gortex boots I was wearing were size 43.

    AlpineStars, Great boots from $135 on up. Do not buy for looks but spend some time trying on different boots and walk in them even if its just a short distance.

    Comfort and protection are both a matter of preference but I just got a pair of BMW Santiagos some months back and love them! Protection and waterproof with a fairly easy break in. I find them very comfortable to walk in. Just figure on adding some quality innersoles for support.

    The Held Highlander II boots look interesting. I don't have any experience with them but could be worth a look.

    I also bought a new pair of Sidi boots from Bob's. Very happy with the fit. I replaced a pair of Tourmasters that didn't fit well.
