Hello Everyone,
I am about to invest some of my hard earned money on boots. These are going to be my first and I don’t have much experience and have narrowed down on these 2 boots. I would like to know your input on which are better and why? any help from your ends would be highly appreciated.

I know it generally runs down to personal choice but I would like to know your thoughs in regards with safety and comfort :blah::blah:.

Thanks,
Sarge

I use the Sidi Vertigo Corsa and they are all day comfortable and long lasting.

I have both the Alpinstar SMX and Sidi Vertigo.

My A-stars are an older model then that pic.

I like them both, but I prefer the Sidi.

I wear size 42 and both fit similarly.

I just ordered the alpinestar SMX-R boots in white (will look more like a pair of sneakers under a pair of riding jeans). I considered the SMX plus boot but decided against it since the R is considered to be a more comfortable boot. I wanted something for the street.....something I could wear for extended periods of time and apparently thats the better boot for that.

Yes I thought the vertigo Corsa's are better than the Vertigo but unfortunately they have been discontinued and the replacement is the Vortice but they cost a lot more. What I liked in the vertigo corse was the ankle protection was a lot more.

The main problem I have with both boots are the hard plastic heal protection. The plastic rubs against the heal guard and swing arm and scratches the crap out of them.

I had to polish my heal guards because of the scratches made by the boots.

If you can find the Vertigos now, they are usually on a good sale. I ordered some vertigo air's recently.... pretty good deal I thought. Hopefully they actually show up!


I like the sidi's. I wish they were a bit more quiet.
