Shopping for gear locally?

I am heading up to work in Chicago (im 3 hours south) and need to purchase some gear. The places down here have very little selection. Any places up there have a good stock of leather gear and boots?

Thanks

Chase

highlands yamaha in countryside used to carry a lot of gear. havent been there in a few years. u may want to call and see if they have what u want in stock. btw thier prices were really good. cheaper than online sometimes.

IMO, nobody has a good selection of leather gear. You're probably going to have to hit a few shops to find what you want. Chi Perf does have good selection of Sidi boots though.
