Wear out fast? I relation to what?

Any boot that I have had, has shown some sort of wear through repeated use, and I would not say that any 1 boot would wear faster than another.

Maybe post a pic, or link to the Berrik boot? Also give a list of features so that someone can point you in the right direction! Like do you want them to be perforated or waterproof or warm etc.

Actually the new generation of SIDI boots the vertago & vertigo corsa do have substantially thinner soles than the old vertabra boots did, so they are more prone to wear through where the ball of your foot meets the footpeg. this is especially true if you have those meat-tenderizer pegs that the adjustable vortex rearsets came with

As much as Sidi's cost!!! Are the Vertigos ok to get or should we go the Vertigo Corsa direction? What's the main differences between those boots! Benefits, disadvantages (aside from price tag), etc.

You would be fine with the Vertigos, but if you can handle the big price jump, here is what you get.

Quote:
The Vertigo Corsa extends the adjustable calf system by incorporating the Tecno-II buckle system over the bridge of the rider’s foot. With a simple adjustment of the Tecno knob the internal monofilament line will evenly close and wrap the boot around the riders foot in micro adjustments for a perfect glove—like fit. This system prevents the rider’s foot from sliding forward in a crash thus offering extra protection to the rider’s toes.

The Vertigo Corsa’s exclusive external ankle brace system ties into the calves Tecno VR panel and the boot lower in order to provide the highest level of support against tortional twists or severe impacts without reducing the boot’s flexibility or comfort. Made of Nylon based thermoplastic resins, the material offers high resistance and protective qualities. Please note that the ankle brace is provided on the inside AND outside of the rider’s ankle with each Vertigo Corsa.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I would rather not pay that much extra! I am thinking I will go with the A* S-MX Plus just from going through past threads regarding boots! The Sidi's from what I read tend to wear out on the soles due to the thinner soles. I don't want to have to replace those boots sooner than I have to especially at that price point.

my thoughts exactly (about the sidi's). i'm still torn on what boot to buy, i want the best boot i can get and i don't want to spend over $250

that's a good price... Where did you get that from Motonation? If so it's on the Black & Yellow limited ones only! And they only carry ones that were too big for me!

Check out Oxtar boots. I've had mine a couple years and love them. Rick said he likes his also.

These are just like mine except mine are black.


Newenough.com carries them at a good price and their return policy is top notch.
