Suggestions on boots

Hey, I bought some Icon superduty boots last year. I have a hard time with the spacing of my footrest and shifter. Any suggestions on boots with a smaller front part near the toes. Not sure if my terms are correct lol.

I actually prefer the gear one would wear on track for the protection. Me like a lot here wear full leathers when riding. All up to your taste. I like the satisfaction knowing if i go down i should fair pretty well. Also i like knowing the gear i wear will last and take a beating

I thought the same thing. A very simple adjustment. If you are not certain how to do this, find someone in your area to help.

I wore Joe Rockets, and they faired very well in a crash. I will either buy them again, or sidi. Full boot only.

+1000. it is VERY EASY to adjust it. i actually was having problems with my bike not wanting to go from 1st to 2nd so i went and looked at it and adjusted it myself with no help at all. more then likely, all u will need is a simple 8mm open ended wrench and can do it all by yourself. just after every adjustment and you lock it down, take the bike out for a quick ride and make sure it still shifts right.

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

IMO it's basically impossible to get a boot that does it all.

Warm in winter?
Cool in summer?
Waterproof?
Breathes well?
Easy to walk in?
Best protection
...and so on.

My compromise was to get two pairs of boots. One pair waterproof touring boots (TCX infinity) and one pair Sidi racing boots with good ventilation (Any vertigo/vortice model).

For me, the deciding factor was adjustability, of which those two boots do a great job in. I tried on the Dainese boots, and there is just no adjustability. My heel lifts too much to feel safe.

If shifting is your only issue..... adjust your shifter.
