What kind of boots do you use when riding your F?

I just bought a new pair of boots for riding http://www.camo-store.com/corcoran_995_zipper_jump_boot.htm What do you think?

I had a pair similar to these when I worked for the railroad in the late 70s and they were very comfortable and wore like iron. They were the only boots I had that lasted more than a few months there.

I've worn Corcoran jump boots all the way thru my 19 years so far in the military.

They are definitely built to last and they're cheap compared to the many different styles of boots out there today. I would recommend them as a durable, comfortable and affordable pair of boots. They are not made for motorcycling though and the capped toe may interfere with your freedom of movement around the shifter.

The first thing I check is the forward edge of the heel & make sure its beveled so as not to catch on anything.
I see that it is on those boots but I like a little more angle than that.

And it's hard to get a good spit shine on that shift smudge! (say that 3 times fast)

About two year ago while riding my Dual Sport bike, I found about 30 gallons or so of diesel fuel that some one dumped on the hard packed dirt road in the middle of a turn. I thought it was just water until I heard my helmet make contact with the ground and me and the bike had parted and were sliding. All the MX gear I had on saved my skin for sure, and changed my thinking a lot about street riding gear.

I downloaded my GPS (mounted on bike) when I return home, the speed reading at diesel fuel contact stated at 58..46..38..18..12..10..10..0..0.

Fieldsheer street. Very comfortable with reinforcement in the correct places.

I wear the Joe Rocket touring boots. I like them because they are comfortable and have the additional flap riveted to the top of the boot so that you don't wear out the boot shifting.

I've been using regular street boots for along time. There is nothing like them for feeling safe. This picture of my current boots was on the previous boot topic.
