Right now I am wearing some very attractive mens joe Rocket blaster boots. :shake I have been looking at the ladies Sidi boots. I am looking for just street use now and possibly somethin that will work on the track. So tell me ladies what are you wearin when you ride?

Daytona..Daytona. I have a narrow foot and I can't believe how good these boots fit. Lots of styles and range of costs.

Race verts and I doubt I will get anything different. These boots are awesome and worth every penny. My low side proved that to me.

Sidi Vertebra II. Since they're my only boots, I wear them on the street too. I'd like to get the Sidi women's street boots but I don't think I can get them in my size. For some reason, specialty shoe manufacturers like this think that all women have small feet. I'm on that borderline because I wear a women's size 9. Most of the time I can get away with men's boots/shoes but that tiny fraction of increased width in the men's shoes makes the fit a bit loose. Thick socks and sole inserts help.

I have Alpine Stars tech series and mens Teknic boots. Both boots are very comfy but the Teknic are best for tucking my leathers in. Being only 5'4 though i have to have both boot soles made bigger by adding 1/4 inch of rubber to them. Least i can touch the floor now!!

Alpine Stars FS GP. They fit well, have ventilation and have ankle and shin guards inside. I can tuck in leathers or zip over. Either way.
I got a smoking deal on ebay ($80) so I got 'em! :D

I usually prefer to ride in Frey Daytona Ladystar (now called M-Star) boots with the 1" lifted soles when I'm just hacking around town on my R-6. They're more comfortable because I'm pretty short and am really on my toes with the R-6. I can get away with the much lower Sidi's on my 999 or if I'm riding the R-6 on known terrain. They're a little bulky, but don't present a problem if you adjust the shifter a little.
They are also great winter boots. These run kind of wide, as they are really only made in the men's M-Star model now. Even if you order the LadyStar, you will get the M-Star. Available from Helimot.

For more serious riding, I like the Sidi Race Vertebra boots. They give great protection and are really comfortable. Occasional tightening and lubing with WD-40 of the numerous screws keeps them functional and not squeaking. Any of the Sidi boots are wonderful--I also like the customer service from their distributor, Motonation, a lot. I would say the less expensive B-1 model or the standard Vertebra model offer more than enough protection for all sportbike street riding. Haven't tried their cruiser-style boots, but these people just don't make any bad products.

Sidi Vert2's here as well. I'm about to sell 'em to another chica on here (her feet are smaller than mine :laughing they'll fit her better) most likely will get another pair of Vert2's. I like them very well. May go try on some A-stars.... I'm one of those weird people that feels the need to try everything on before they buy :laughing
