|The faithful Sidi's|
The boots I've settled on are made by Forma and have come my way by comments from others who use them and like 'em. They're mostly leather with good ankle and shin protection along with a pretty serious looking sole. Closure is via velcro and three snap-lock dohickey-me-whatsits (apologies for the technical terminology). I haven't ridden wearing them yet but when I tried them on they felt a lot more comfortable than I thought they'd looked and fit well.
