Re: Anyone Wearing These Boots? Opinions Please
I'd rate them as an eight or so. They have the usual roundel for protection, but are not stiff enough to prevent flexing or twisting. The supports are really just additional layers of leather if I have it figured out properly.
I have seen much stronger boots, but they are too uncomfortable to wear except for riding. Of course, that's my opinion and why I wear the Airflow 2 boots. Boots that don't get worn don't do you any good, and if I can't wear the boots when I get off the motorcycle and walk around I don't put them on any more.
I can say I don't worry about sliding in these boots. Or having pressure on them. Even a tumble shouldn't be a problem. But if for some reason the boot was trapped with the foot in it, it will flex more than other types and an injury could occur. Not a likely occurance as far as I am concerned, but you may have different ideas. Different riding styles.
