    American made combat boots. Stay away from those made in China jungle boots - You'll be lucky to get 6 mos out of 'em.

    yeah, for the most part what joe said. I'll add to that the sidi on-road sympatex boot for winter/ rain (and race, but only until I get actual racing boots!).

    Hey man - Big Boots are fine. Google "Hurt Report" and you'll see that much of the motorcycle injuries are in the lower legs and foot area.

    Get the biggest "Fack Off" boots you can strap onto yer feet. As much ankle and heel and toe support as is possible. Do not feel self conscious. You can kick anyone's teeth in with them. They will feer you.

    I'd look at the dirt bike boots. Very supportive and protetive.

    This is not something to skimp on. Ride safe!

    If you are much more fashion conscious and don't want to be "the dork in the armored boots" or have to carry a pair of sneakers with you, You could check out Frye Harness or campus boots. Pricey but chicks dig em and they look cool. Although I had them resoled, I still wear the same pair I bought in 1992.

    Although I rock the vans a la joe c every once in a while, for a newbie I would stick to a boot with ankle support. You are probably going to be a little wobbly at slow speeds for the frist 2 years of riding and the chances of you putting your foot down at a weird angle are significantly higher.

    thanks for the suggestions guys. I'm kinda weary of boots right now. I've got to find something fairly small exterior wise, I've tried wearing my work boots a couple times on the bike and they just don't fit! I miss shifts all the time because I have to jam them in there. Granted they're a size too big because I lost a bit of weight since buying them (13, wear a 12 now)

    I was looking at the alpine stars too before I made this thread. I definatly know that high top is the way to go..hell I need em just to take the MSF course!

    I ordered my draggin jeans last night, so shoes are next, and then a Cortech jacket.
