My go to boots are Bates 8" tactical sport boots with side zips. Lightweight, comfortable and they breathe.

I also have a part of Gasolina Cafe style ton-up boots, which are better for cooler and cold weather, but they do have perforated versions for hot weather.

I used those bates boots as my construction work boots for a while because steel toes were destroying my feet. Pretty good light boots.

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.sea
The point of weird racing boots is to protect you feet, ankles and shins if you hit the pavement at speed. I wore Frye boots that I water sealed while touring Europe in 1970 but since then wore just sneakies and everyday shoes for years. Until I broke my foot 8 years ago and later the other foot (not riding). Now I need stiffer soles and more support and use Alpinestars (SMX-3, SMX-S and SMX-1R) which have a pretty low profile at the toe and which fit my wide feet. You should be able to adjust the height of the shifter for fatter, clunkier shoes or boots.

I have 2 pairs of these. One for warm weather and a larger size to stuff extra socks in for cold weather. I like them as they are comfortable, durable and decent on the pocket book. A no frills solid choice.:thumbsup:

I second the Gasolinas recommended by Ko Jack. They do make a statement and are real bike boots custom made to your foot.

Most of the time I wear cowboy boots with non leather soles. I’ve got to many to show them all but here are a few. The green tops are American bison and shark. Black elephant trunk and brown elephant. The blue tops are a vamp of hippopotamus and the tall brown are another Gasolina and the last are a Stingray with a Vibram sole.
