Quality gear is worth the money. A mangled foot will cost you a lot more than $200...

$200 is on the cheaper side really.
Look at Coretech. I have 2 pairs of their boots.
They are pretty cheap but still offer good protection.

Well I am pretty cheap lol. My tourmaster 3 jacket with spine and elbow/shoulder protection only cost me $25 cuz some old guy passed away and his wife sold his trike and all his gear. Shit it's like $189 brand new ha.

Good foot protection is worth it. Being not able to walk and do your normal day to day SUCKS. I even bought my best friend a pair of A* boots last year

Spend thousands on a bike but not hundreds to protect yourself...

Protection. They won't fly off or tear a hole in them from sliding on pavement. Reusable. Total ankle support and Achilles protection. No worrying about shoe laces getting caught in your chain and you drop the bike at a traffic light.

Crash tested and all. If there is one thing A* does right it is their boots. You don't have to go as high as I did and you can find other brands for cheaper. It's the same thing as sliders on a bike. It can go down and you can get right back up and ride away (Low sides mostly).



Ohh here is the description:

Alpinestars SMX Plus Boot Features:

High-tech microfiber upper construction is lightweight and extremely durable.
Forefoot laminated with shock absorbing open cell foam while the ankle area has a highly breathable lining for improved comfort.
Large front and rear asymmetrical accordion zones are optimized to maximize flexibility for superior comfort and safety.
Durable sole is designed for improved riding feel and features evenly textured rubber for consistent grip
The S-MX PLUS boot is CE certified.
Unique Multi Link Control System

Alpinestars unique Multi Link Control System provides advanced support for the ankle, limiting hyper-torsion, hyper-extension and hyper-flexion as well as providing additional impact protection to the ankle and Achilles.
Premium protection

Contoured shin plate protector is injected with high modulus TPU for superior impact and abrasion resistance.
Wide, ventilated, heel counter extends to the ankle and is combined with a shock absorbing padded insert and self-molding foam ankle protectors.
Replaceable heel slider and external side heel slider are positioned to dissipate shock and promote sliding during an accident.
Race inspired details

Newly designed, replaceable TPU toe slider with snap-in assembly provides more coverage around the toe area.
Inner KevlarŪ speed lacing closure and a unique lateral zipper offer precise and secure fitting.
Micro adjustable ratchet buckle closure on the calf lets you finely tune the fit of the boot for maximum security and comfort.
Alpinestars anatomical and replaceable countered footbed provides arch support and greater feel through the forefoot.

So am I gonna need a full suit with these boots to complete the look or will some black leggings do the trick lmfao. Kidding, but those boots sound impressive. the guy I sold my old bike to was wearing tennis shoes and dropped it on his right foot while turning in the parking lot lol. Swelled up so fast ha.

I guess I'll buy some actual riding boots, at least my insurance will cover my gear if I wreck.

Sweet, yeah I've never been in a crash on a bike over 20mph. I've slammed into a van going 60mph and into a ditch backwards on ice going 70mph in my car. Never broke any bones just bruising. I did have a chunk of coal from a haul truck hit me in the knee though one time, holy crap did that hurt. I was bleeding and it scratched the tank on my 650, but that's about the worst of it on a bike.

What would be better, Kevlar jeans or actual leg gear with the sliders

Yes kevlar is better than plain jeans, but expect some road rash still. I was unimpressed with how mine help up.

Would you care to see the scar where I had a quarter-sized hole worn through my knee back when I thought regular jeans were okay to ride in? There was no blood. I looked through the hole in my jeans and saw only white. I told my buddy "That's my kneecap, isn't it?" "Yeah, don't look at it..."

Around town I wear just the jeans , if I am going farther and faster then I have a pair of alpinestars armor shorts that wear underneath

I still need to figure something for my knee when I wear jeans , I have a full suit and I have a pair of leather pants but we know you can't wear that all the time

You can get used to it riding in gear Honestly I hated wearing gear now I hate not wearing it

Honestly I had kevlar pants and A* Knee and shin pads. Still got rash right on my knee cap. Healing wasn't bad but it was either limp or walk it off and watch your knee bleed.

It's on my list to get leather riding pants for this season. Not doing that again

Luckily I've never experienced that haha I did watch this happen though, on video of course. Nothing quite like seeing a man drill hardware into your spine, I love my scars but I don't want anymore lol either way I have been convinced. I got a pair of boots and some Kevlar/CE pants in my Amazon cart
