    I'm looking at getting some short boots for street riding and touring duties (I've been using a pair of Redwing boots). Has anyone used boots similar to the Alpinestars SMX-1?

    I think Ocean Colour Scene wear these when their Ten Pin Bowling shoes are away being resoled.

    Surely you want full protection all of the time?
     
  6. I have a pair of Sidi Street low boots and a pair or RTS gore text short boots. Use the RTS ones when commuting with armoured jeans. They a suede finish look more "normal" for work.
    Both have good ankle protection, the Sidi look just like a cut down race boot, similar to the the alpinestars.
    Hope this helps.
