    Ive had 2 pairs of these and they are very comfy but no good for kicking over a 4 stroke should you have to.
    The first time my wr kicked back and shoved the kick start straight through the bottom Rolling Eyes
    The second time I slipped of the kickstart witch then punched a hole through the side. If that wasn't bad enough I then fell over with my boot still impaled on the kick start and snapped the brake leaver Evil or Very Mad  Something you couldn't make up and something I,l not forget as all the bastards fell about pissing them selves.
    Would have been cheaper to buy a new starter. This was before the warranty direct days lol!

    I do like the look of them Very Happy may have to square off the heel a bit mind but trying the tech 3's with no heel (rocking & sliding all over the foot pegs type of thing) more than happy to put my old tech 6's back on.

    Wulf Libre cheap cheerful, not a fashion item Cool sturdy with grip and dry as long as put dubbin on before every ride
    (and the only boot et James had that fitted when i was desperate lol! )
    "The best boot is only after the first mud hole,  lol! who still has warm dry feet Snigger "
