Puma Boots

They can be a killer to walk round the GP in all day, but how well do they fare on the road?

At 350€ I'll have to start saving for a couple of monts, but all the same... :lol:

Nice boots, great if you've got a KTM SuperMotard, but no blue in 'em for me :cry:

Damn they are expensive.

Boot's need to be comfy, hard wearing, dry and comfy when walking...and you can get all of that for £130.00 and less for handmade leather boot's from Altberg that will last you for 5 years and more. Most of Brit's think the same, Altberg came out as one of the top in the RIDE survery.

Granted that the more things cost then the likelyhood is that it will be better but on this occassion I think you are paying for just the name.

Agreed!! You will be paying for the name as well! :cry:
Though these boots are made with a different mind set! There's an active protection system built in....
As soon as your foot moves beyond the normal capability (most of the time this only happens in an accident!!) the boot will prevent that movement, therefore prevent injury!!

In my opinion something to be considered! :lol:

Pearl silver, refracted silver whatever, but I reckon he's planning a colour change...reason being he's run out of that colour touching up all the panel damage parking and manouvering it in the back garden :twisted: :evil: :evil:

Grey and orange would look quite good though. :shock:

Just an idea, maybe you can convince the daughter that this is better colour scheme than pink.

I am what I am :roll:

PS the boot stops your foot over stretching, but it must transfer further up your leg....look on the bright side, at least a leg has less bones than a foot, and heals easier.
