Hi Fellow 109 riders:

I'm looking for some boot recommendations. I've been riding my 109 with my Honda half-boots with heels, and I've concluded that this type of boot doesn't work well for me on the 109 due to the pedal/peg positioning (it was fine on my last bike). So today I rode with plain shoes (with no heels), and it was waaay more comfortable.

So now I'm looking for a pair of half boots that are comfortable under jeans, have no heel, are flexible in the ankle, and have good protection. Any recommendations?

Thanks.

Great boots, bought them for my bike and now I wear them constantly just cause they're very comfy. Full composite in them, no metal anywhere and they grip on oily roads very well..
I have these as well. They are very comfortable and work pretty well. I also like the inside ankle zipper for quick on/off of boot.

My only problem is the thick toe gives me a problem when shifting. I either can't get my boot out or I fail to rock my foot forward enough after a shift before the next shift??? :yikes:

I have not adjusted the shift lever for fear I may have problems with tennis shoes???

Any sugestions? :dontknow: :doorag:

I just ponied up and bought a pair of these johnny rebs. :bigthumbsup:
Very comfortable boot, very flexable and no issue bending to grab a gear or hit the skids.
Now i just gotta find a way to give em a nice "patina" so they look like an an old pair.
Boots, like jeans and leather jackets, are no good until they are old and worn.

I wear a boot called "Brazos" and I thought they were made by Bates but I could be wrong. The "Brazos" name might be the style but they are a lot like the boot Law enforcement wears. They are about 10" tall very lightweight but padded/reenforced good and have a sole a lot like an athletic shoe, no heel. I found out a long time ago I cannot wear boots with heels when I ride. Me feet get hung up to easy and the peg to foot relationship does not always mean your toes will be where you need them with some bikes/boots and I like the comfort of no heels when walking after getting off the bike too.

Hey, I just wear those comfy Justin Ropers in Black with my black jeans. Look and wear good and are real comfortable. High tops only protect from a n exhaust burn in the event of a spill.. Otherwise they're worthless. But only about $49 depending on where you buy them. That's the Texas price :eek: My current pair I've had for about 4 years and 45K miles. They fit most bikes. :D

I forgot to mention, the "Brazos" boot mentioned above is available at Academy Sporting goods stores along with a lot of other type boots and are reasonably priced. :bigthumbsup:

thats a lot like the "Brazos" I was talking about earlier. I think mine is just a style of Bates boot. Mine has the zip side too and are nice and light on the feet but look like they have a less pronounced heel than yours do. about the same price. :bigthumbsup:

Did you order your boots right from Timberland or get them somewhere else? I saw these and wondered how comfortable they were, but can't find them anywhere but on the Timberland site.
I bought them from a store here in Houston; I want to say it was Journey's. Do a dealer locator in your area on the timberland site and call around to the different stores. BTW they are as comfortable as basketball sneakers.
