I agree. Mine are so much more comfortable than my Tech 8's, and they have a much better rear brake feel. Did you get the '06 boots with the silver? My buddy has the '05 boots that have the black instead of silver and they don't look nearly as trick.

I will never buy Alpinstar boots again. I'm with you guys on the SG-10s. I've had mine for 2 rides now and I love them. They are so much more comfortable, and the hinge really improves brake and shifter feel. Much better than my old Tech 8s.

Bought my son some new Tech 10's for Xmas. Kind of weird how only the white ones have the ventilation system. Found them online for $340 too! :applause:

I just ordered SG10s yesterday from my sponsor, I'll get them next week. I have heard nothing but praise for this boot, even against the Tech10. From what I know, people are pissed that Alpinestars didn't put a harder compound for the soles. They get eaten up just as fast as the Tech8s.

I love my Tech8s, but I am ready for the SG10s.

You got them 5 days ago and their already broke in?

Are you riding in New Jersy this time of year or are you just wearing them around the house?

I hate to be the downer to this SG-10 session, but I bought mine, a few months ago after wearing out a pair of Tech 6's after 2 yrs. It took about 6 rides before they felt comfortable. On the 6th ride, the buckle broke. The plastic piece where the adjustment strape goes into. 2 rides after that, the strape that wrapped around the ankle and has a screw in it fell out. Now, just last week, after taking a small endo, the steel toe part of the boot flexed so far back, it broke my 3rd Metatarsal in my foot. Needless to say, I havent had the best expierience with my SG-10's. I am personally considering going back to Alpines... Just my .02 cents....

BTW... Here the pic:
