I'm looking at the Speed and Strength Full Battle Rattle boots. Any thoughts? Im not sure what type of heal cut would be good for this bike. Aggressive like Timberland Pro steal toes? Or more of a flat sole?
I like my Red Wings Iron Rangers, but TBH, they are not real motorcycle boots and don't offer much in the way of protection. I've heard too many stories about the dangers of Steel Toe boots for MC riding (in a crash, the toe cup has been known to amputate all your toes, and if it does get bent, it'll be extremely difficult for the EMS team to remove).

I don't wear boots. I wear Altama Panamocs. Around $80 pair. But last me at least 2 years. Regular sneakers I destroy in about 6 months to a year. usually around 6 months. My problem is finding a 9W. Sneakers I end up buying a 9 1/2 and Usually end up splitting the sole in two.

I am thinking to buy...
Touratech's Destino boots are really two pairs of footwear in one: a tough leather outer shell for ADV riding and a soft, waterproof inner-shoe to wear off the bike as well. Tune in to find out how they performed!
