I have the SMX plus boots and love them. They will nicely fit under some boot cut jeans so as not to stand out too much on the street. That is a great price for those boots though.

How do these boots compare to Sidi Vertigo Airs? I mostly do street riding, but next year I'm going to have more time and go to the track. Which boot would be more suitable? I'm also on a budget.

Like said before, how's the sizing on these? run big or small?

Thanks.

I've got a set of Alpinestars Smx-3's and they have amazing feel to ride with and good comfort for walking. Protection wise IMHO they look to offer great protection and taking the boot in your hands and trying to flex it directions you wouldn't want your foot to go (ankle rotation, back flex, side flex) they provide a lot of support which some don't think they have due to the lack of visible external bracing.

I came close to a highside and saved it but foot hit the ground and kicked up and caught the peg of my Sato racing rearsets hard enough I bent the solid peg with my foot and no damage to the foot other than a small bruise. Highsided as well in the boots with foot hitting the ground and protected great from the impact and the slide. Here's a vid of the highside... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT_PTuR15n4

Here's a second angle of how not to take that corner... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFbz6NmQNco&mode=related&search=
