Looks like SMX Plus boots. Those are really comfy. Lost one at last track event after crash and bought a used set of Gaerne boots. Had local place do repairs on my suit

Jessica is running smx's and im running with supertech's
Wanted dainese but didn't like the style or fit
Had a pair of gaernes back in the 80's very impressive for the time when compared to others
My best leathers were a set of hand made to measure Crowtrees sadly no longer around
still have them but a little tight and no body armour but it was the eighties and they cost about £700 then !

I was going to buy the super techs. Are you happy with fit, sizing, and control on the bike.

they took a little time to get used to, as they use the inner boot design
I have toes like fingers :) so the 'crease' wear point would not be in the usual place
and were a little painful to walk in, ok now
apart from the metal heel clicking on pavement
my understanding is that you can buy replacement parts if needed

The Gaerne boots really look protective with the ankle support on each side. Zipper goes really low also. I had nasty high side 4 years ago and was recently clipped going on the back straight at COTA going into third gear. Last crash the RS Taichi suit got chewed up, had SMX Plus boots which did great along with GP Tech gloves. Had huge contusion that showed up on calf right above the boot top which took a long time to heal. I see Dianese is going to start selling their air suit in the US finally. If I keep doing this it will be in my future.
