They are far from the same rider. A simple look at past results is all that's needed to change that theory. Not sure why everybody loves to hate Joey, but he's had a very solid career as a frontrunner. Bloss on the other hand has not done much other ... more »

You should retire from Vital. Wishing retirement on him is pathetic.

Done it numerous times already. There are no sole inserts available anywhere that I can find in a size 13/14 except Alpinestars who I am going to have resole my boots. And to those who keep saying that foot positioning will make the soles last longer, ... more »

I’ll try to work on it! Going to be difficult to change the way I ride after 30+ years. I don’t know how tall you are, but trying to get my feet further back on the pegs when I go from sitting to standing is difficult. Perhaps a slightly taller seat ... more »

No size 13/14.

They didn’t say anything about that. I also fail to see the logic in that. If I position my feet differently, they will wear out in a different spot. The only thing they said was that the soles wear out faster due to the size of my feet to which I say, ... more »

I was told $100 and $120 by two different people at Alpinestars. Like I said in another post, they did offer to replace the soles for $50 which is my only option as the size 13/14 sole inserts are sold out everywhere I’ve looked.

Thanks for the feedback. The tech 10 has a large toebox especially in a size 13. Maybe that has something to do with the accelerated wear from having to maneuver my foot so much to shift.

Totally agree. I'm a middle class at best single home owner. "Dirt bike poor" as my dad would say. This is my first new pair of boots in at least five years and it's been quite a let down.

What's the fitment like on SIDI boots for those of you that have them? All I'm finding is a size 12.5. Nothing larger. Anyody with size 13 feet have some SIDI's in a 12.5? I wore them BITD, but that was 15+ years ago.

I loved the boots for the short time they lasted. Unfortunately it looks like I'm going to have to sell them or spend an insane amount of money on repairs. Way more comfortable than my old Tech 10's.

Exactly. I'm looking for feedback on the boot soles, not a riding lesson. Thanks to all that have contributed. Foot placement is irrelevant to this topic.

Please provide proof of you riding on your toes. The sole inserts are replaceable because that’s where people stand. My riding is fine the way it is and standing on the peg differently isn’t going to change these garbage soles.

That’s very strange. The black pair should have the same soles as they also look to be ‘21 models. I guess it is what it is. I will most likely end up selling them and getting some SIDI SRS. The soles on my older Tech 10’s lasted much longer. Looks like ... more »

Those are definitely different than mine. Is that the vented model? Have a pic of the boots themselves?

I have been trying to reach out to someone for over a month. My local dealer has been very helpful. They first contacted the rep then after nothing for a couple weeks they told me to contact Alpinestars directly. I did and the warranty department did ... more »

I’m 6’2” with knee braces and size 13 feet. This is how I ride. haha I’ve tried riding on the balls of my feet many times and it doesn’t work for me. Feels sketchy and hard to manage the controls. Thanks for your feedback about the boot wear.

I wish that was the case, but it’s not. These boots just came out the last week of July and I only get to ride on weekends. Same week I got my ‘21 KX. I rode with them the next 5 weekends and then had to wear my old boots.

I am currently 210 lbs without gear so about the same as you. I’ve been racing 30 years and have never seen anything like it in such a short amount of time.
