Hi these boots are great, best support / protection and good feel I the pegs from new. Only down side is they don't last very long. I only get between 6 to 12 months then there shot.

The most comfortable and supported boot ever, I find mine last pretty well also, longer than the last pair of another well known make I had.

I really enjoy my set had them for a couple years now, still going strong. Only problem I have had is the ankle area is rubbing on something on the right boot and getting some gouges in the leather. I am considering gluing a "protective" piece of throw away leather in that spot. I can't get rid of the mid pipe mount that the boot is hitting.

Damm good boot....but

You are lucky to get 12 months use out of them. (20 quid a month for boots)
They do need looking after a lot.
My right boot now has a hole in the sole where the footpeg has worn through it.

Would I buy them again, yes.

Think the time they last is affected by how often you ride rivers, sure if you rode in dry conditions they'd last ages. Best boots I've used, wouldn't buy anything else :)

Alpinestars no stop trials boots, they should be perfect for the new rules.

Can someone measure how tall their boots are. Strange question i know, but i wear a knee brace and want a boot that finishes below it. Cheers.
