Which version are you asking about? The originals? The Genius? Or the new one that they're working on?

Hope they are a huge improvement over the Genius.

Funny I still have the originals. I think I may be the only person alive that actually likes them. You could pretty much land anything and feel nothing through the pegs. Of course feeling nothing was the #1 complaint.

And my buckles would fall off/come undone--I must have half a dozen old pics with a "strap" flappin' in the breeze...Once I got used to them, I liked them and learned to ride with them with no trouble...very sturdy feeling and confidence inspiring (I once saw a dude get his leg mangled bad when it got wedged between the swingarm and rear wheel in a crash somehow, so I was "scarred" for a few years..."robot boots" didn't bother me a bit lol) Plus, Hannah wore them for a while--nuff saidtongue

I've been planning on buying a new pair of Scotts for a while now, but always seem to end up back with my AStars...they have a new "version" of the Genius coming out soon? hmmm....

If you don't crash once in a while, you're not going fast enough.

What didn't you like about your Genius boots? Just curious.

I wore a pair of the originals back in 79-80. I liked 'em too. They took some getting used to, but worked good for me.

I had two pair and they were great. Back when foot pegs were skinny you could land hard from a jump and not feel a thing. Kick a rock or a rut and nothing. Made your feet feel bullet proof.

I was talking about the Genius. But I didnt know anything about them having some new ones coming out. What is the word on them.

I like the Genius boots a lot. I went from the Tech 8's and I feel the SCOTT boot is as good or better than the A-star. Of course I really liked the Sidi SRS boots too so maybe it's just me?

How about those Scott like boots called MXL's I think? Lynn Swan wore them in "Time Rider"

Any boot that ugly can't be any good.
Unless you're blind and have no taste.

but they look great on you.... wink

HUGE. beyond that comfortable But they are HUGE. That and a price tag that is outrageous. No need for $500 for a boot that you are going to wear a year maybe two.

Cool to hear about a new boot. If the price is right I can see buying a pair.

I loved the original Scott boots but I wore fiberglass Heckel Boots before them so I was already used to the feel. I broke the fibula threw Scott boots.....I swear if I had not had them on I would have shattered my leg.

The Genius sounded more of a design experiment...robocop would have loved them though.

I never wore the Genius personally. Had a friend that had a pair through his sponsorship and hated them so bad he purchased his own Alpine Stars.
I tried a set of the orignals years ago that a guy wanted to sell. I think I wore them for two laps and couldn't feel anything on the bike.
