Stormtrooper Boots

I have been seeking some vegan MX boots and I finally found some. Last years Sidi Force SRS boots are vegan The problem is I have short fat feet and most boots are too narrow for me. A few weeks back i was in Pennsylvania and stopped by a dealership and tried on a different model of Sidi boots and they fit pretty good. Having worked in dealerships for many years I try and buy everything from them and avoid mailorder, but they didn’t have last years boots in stock so I went home and did some searching and found that RockyMoto had them in stock. They did not have black so I reluctantly ordered white boots. Not my first choice but beggars can’t be choosy. The boots are vegan, offer a ton of protection and weren’t too badly priced.

The came today and fit perfectly and though the sole is very, very stiff, with their hinged plastic ankle and soft Lorica boot they are very flexible in the ankle and will require almost zero break-in. I am looking forward to riding with them once this damn cracked rib heals. BTW having never ordered any riding gear via mail-order that Rockymoto was first class and I would not hesitate to order from them again. Though they are white, they do match “Beanie” my cat.

My next piece of gear is a pressure suit with hard chest plates. I have an old Dianese suit but it has almost no chest padding. I am liking the Acerbis Koerta but I want to try one on. Motorcycles equal way too much gear.
I’ll update my riding gear list tonight with this option for boots, but remember if you want them get them ASAP since they are a discontinued model. The post title comes from my friend Deb who said in an email “those are total stormtrooper boots!”

    Get that in white, along with helmet and pants, and you can complete the “Storm Trooper” look.

    Too bad you can’t ride with a laser blaster…

    Hmmm…I am thinking of my next helmet being white, not sure if there are any white pressure suits.

    Weren’t you a character in Star Wars? Those look suspiciously like stormtrooper boots to me. We can’t be fooled!

    Actually I was I played Chewbacca, thank god for hair wax no one knows it is me anymore. Interesting fact my first cat’s name was Chewy short for Chewbacca.
