New boots day!

Picked these up for ~$165 from the manufacturer. Just arrived in the mail today.

First pair of proper Moto boots!

Cool Nice Boots!

IMHO Lace & Zip could really enhance these boots.




I did mine at the end of last season. No more laces ...

I still have a full deck.
I just shuffle slower.

My work boots have side zips. It's kind of a pain in the butt to get everything lined up right for the zipper to close.

They served me well, and I'll probably get another pair if I need another set of safety toes. But the zipper was a benefit only when removing them.

We were issued those for our flying boots in the RCAF to ensure that the boots did NOT stay in the aircraft you had just ejected from...!

That's likely because y'all weren't tying your boots in the first place.

Well since we are talking new gear. Here are my new boots $98 w/ free shipping. I also bought this jacket for like a couple of months ago for only $116 w/ free shipping. Almost felt like I was stealing it.

Not sure what size you are but they still have a screaming deal on these.
