I just picked up a pair of Oxtar Supermotard boots at Cyclegear for $110. Original price was $320, but Oxtar got sued by Alpinestars and had to change their name so a lot of their stuff is on sale CHEAP. These are STURDY boots, full dirtbike boot height (17" tall for my size 12s), and the soles are velcrod on for easy replacement. It's serious velcro though, I ended up flattracking the bike around an onramp yesterday and they're fine. They're also a very hard compound - my friend couldn't get his knife into them, and they can absorb some very serious impacts (read: an SKS, from a 250lb guy who's damn near all muscle). They've also got some other dirtbike boots on sale, I think the supermoto boots are the cheapest ones though. And the boots, with a rockstar can for scale: I'd recommend them to anyone who rides a dual sport/motard and needs a decent pair of boots cheap. The only issue I have with them is that mine squeak a bit, and I'm sure I can just lube the joints on them a bit to get rid of that. They aren't even really broken in yet but they're already fairly comfortable to me. I got them monday, wore them for commute/school tuesday (35 miles of riding, 2.5 hours of class), wore them for commute/school wednesday, then errands in town, followed by a 50 mile ride with 20 other people, followed by hanging out at bike night (standing) for an hour or so, followed by commute home (100 miles total wednesday). Thursday was commute (but remembered to bring sandals), followed by a several hour trip north (35 mile commute, 230ish mile trip north that took ~5 hours). Today was 65 miles. My feet were a bit sore the days I forgot to bring something to walk around in (duh, they're tall boots) but they're already great for riding it.
