I do believe the boots in the OP's thread are equestrian boots.

I originally thought equestrian boots would be just dandy for riding motorcycles. Well, they are not. Even a gentle stop can rip the sole off the toe and leave you wondering, how the F did that happen?? Dang it, those boots were freaking expensive!

On motorcycles, it's best to wear motorcycle boots.

Even Sidi's can come off in a crash

Having the boot stay on your foot is certainly a key issue ... but I've seen even Sidi boots come off, depending on the forces of the off. When the Sidi's came off, the boot had caught and the forces popped the zipper. The foot and leg came out and the rider continued flying further away from the wreckage.

I halfway think that this was better than wrenching and breaking the lower leg or ankle had the boot stayed closed, but I don't know if Sidi's are made to do this, or if it was coincidental. I suspect the latter.

I have these and am just breaking them in.

As I went to ride with them the other day and couldn't change gear!! I also need to increase the distance of my gear lever. They have been comfortable from the moment I've used them. I paid about £80 quid extra on top of the list price to get them custom made, fat calves!!

I am still amazed at how different we all are when it comes to our bike gear and personal choice.

From horse riding boots to golf shoes we all believe our choice suits us to the tee. One boot will stay on your foot even in a wreck but that probably isn't a good idea since it might just tear your foot off in a crash.
Another boot may be a chic magnet but dissolve in the first contact with water. (Yes, I did exaggerate a little but you get the gest). Our safety choices for boots are the same for coats and helmets. What ever floats your boat. Flip flops still rank high on my list of foot wear whilst riding.

SIDI makes a full GP boot with a flip-flop sole - seems like the best of both worlds eh?

Well I got the Exelement Assassin boots but they were too bulky and it was hard to feel the shifter peg.... They got returned.

As far at the boots in the image I I
Linked... And as pointed out it being in a Roland Sands image I followed the above suggestion and emailed the company... It turns out it was a prototype boot that RSD designed but decided not to produce..... Too bad.
