New Fox Boot
This got me to thinking. Do you prefer a bootie type boot or just slip the ole foot in boot?

Looking for opinions.

Bootie, No bootie, really doesnt matter to me. I have been running tech 8's for years but Ive had fox formas and I liked those too. Basically, I dont really care. People who care are fruits.

They all feel comfortable to you? I have never worn the Fox boots, the new ones look comfortable. I have had some bad boots. UGH. Foot vices.

Never had any bootie boots, I use Fox Forma Pro or Sidi Vortex right now. I used AXO before and always felt safe and comfortable, with all of them brands on. I only tried a pair of Tech 8 in the showroom, but they felt a little akward and bulky because of the bootie. That will never make me say they're bad anyway, becuase I never really tried them on track. Surely they look good and, honestly, they are THE boots, don't you think so?

Tiki,

Seems like people either love or hate the bootie. I use tech 8's with the bootie and don't think I'll ever go back to a boot without them.

I guess the way the boot feels. It makes the boot feel more "connected" to my feet - more like a glove. The bootie kind of surrounds your feet and takes the slop out of the system.

I'd like to try some without booties (kind of disappointed with A-stars soles) but I'm afraid to fork out the $ and be disappointed.

No booties - as someone said above, I've tried several on at different times and just didn't care for them in the shop. If I rode a pair it would probably be different. The Gaerne SG10's with all the Gel around the ankle are pretty darn comfy!

I've worn Tech 8's for year now and the bootie is what I like the most about them and what I hate the most about them.

Let me explain:

Like - the bootie makes it fit really well, little/no break-in time, etc.

Hate - the bootie is a pain to deal with, I have to take them out of the boot to put on then slide my foot in the boot.

I keep wearing them so I guess they are not that much of a pain.

I wore Tech 8's for 5 seasons. With every new pair I bought, it seemed like the durability was getting worse and worse so I bought SG10's this year. Looking back at it, I wish I would have switched to Gaerne's sooner. I don't miss the bootie one bit.
