This could be some were else or belong in another part of this forum but I trust the opinions given here. Boots were do you stand ? whats your choice and Why? the reason I ask is buying boots is like paying for a movie you can tell if they work till you get into it for a while. boots are an expensive miss purchase. Tech 8 is buy far the best I have owned the Gearne cypher are the worst for me. I will be trying some Beric boots soon as they show up.
