vozizm i would recommend the sidi vertebra race boot. it is $350 but well worth it. i had a wreck and my boots held up well as a matter of fact i still were them <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=""> .
Although I always wear a very good helmet, jacket, gloves, jeans or some other good M/C pants, I have been riding with tennis shoes at times or half boots. I just ordered Alpinestars GPS boots. Thanks for the wake-up call.
Tryed both Alpinstar & Sidi on,went with the Sidi vertibre,they were more comfortable on my feet & really diden`t even need to be broken in.Dont know how they are but the Teknic boots look like a good value for the money.
I see it alot also, riders wearing wife beaters and shorts riding sport bikes. It's not pretty when they crash. I've been wearing a set of of combat boots when I ride, intermixed with sneakers <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"> . Guess I need to buy a set of real riding boots as well.

I have news for you -- that was way over 50-60 mph. I highsided at over 120 in cargo pants and a t-shirt with tennis sneakers and didn't look anywhere near that bad (I slid 400 ft) I'll post pics for you if you're interested.
