Exactly, why? Have you tried them on? Walking barefoot on a loose shell road feels better than those boots feel. There are other boot makers out there that make far better boots for the price. AlpineStars and Sidi are the top choices for a reason.

I would agree that the sidi vertebra race is a better overall boot than the evo ti, but it should be considering the difference in price (about $100 online).

fwiw, the last alpinestars I owned (gp stars) were crap compared to the evo ti in terms of comfort, protection and durability. because of that, I generally take alpinestar proselytizing with with a grain of salt. :D

I dunno, though. I've had my evo ti's for about a year now and, aside from some squeaks in the ankle joints, they've been great. I got mine for $220 (they were on sale - I think they are normally $235 or so) at newenough.com (and I can't say enough good things about newenough's great customer service).

Scott you got Oxtars! Thats too funny. I personally don't like the fit of the Alpinstars (I've got narrow feet) but alot of people use them. I've also had a pair of Teknic which were nice but don't come near to the protection that the Sidi's offer. The good thing about getting a popular brand like Alpinestars and Sidi is that you know they can hold up to a crash and you can get replacement parts easily.

Ok, not proud to say this or remind anyone who knows. But I've crashed twice in the same pair of Oxtar boots that I still wear and they have held up great. It's the only pair of boots I own and I've had them for two years. And they are actually still in great condition.
