I need a new pair of boots (mine are worn out).
Any ideas for boots that are not too fat from the front that would fit under the shifter?
I don't want to get those weird looking racing boots.
What are you guys wearing while on the Rocket?
Pics, while not mandatory, are appreciated ;)
Thanks in advance.

Been using these for the past 3 years.

And can walk around in too.

Very comfortable.

Been wearing Nobull superfabric high tops as riding shoes. HIGH-TOP BLACK IVY CANVAS TRAINER (MEN'S)
They're coated in ceramic dots so they slide really well, but I don't wanna crash to learn the hard way.

I can't do cushiony boots/shoes anymore. Flat shoes/boots have fixed my feet and knee problems over the years.

The Dainese Street Rockers look pretty slick and might be up my alley, though. If they're flat like their appearance makes them seem, anyway.

Merlin Drax D24 for me very comfortable straight out the box just cut the back loops off to stop your jeans riding up

TCX Hero, super comfortable (after a bit of wearing in) and they fit under the Rocket shifter. I prefer lace ups and these are high enough for the ties to be under my jeans so no worries with the loops getting snagged.

I wear a high top (over the ankle) hiking boots these days. I gave up wearing motorcycle specific boots years ago. I have seen many that seems far better for daily life than what was available back then. I chose to go the hiking boots route simply because I riding to work does not make it as easy to wear the motorcycle boots all day. If you go the hiking boot route, your options are many. I like my Timberland boots well.
