i've had the Aerostitch Combat Touring Boot, the full length style. It was made by SIDI for Aerostitch. Once they are broken in, they are great! I had my RT fall on me in a parking lot and my foot was pinned under the driver foot peg. Luckily i was wearing the Aerostitch Combat Boots, not one scratch, bruise, or any broken bones!!!!! There is a fast lace system, a single ski boot latch at the midfoot and two strong velcro straps mid and high calf area. After two years, the only thing i need to replace is the laces. I glued a piece of leather on the left top forefoot because there is no extra tough surface for the gear shifter. It was wearing the smooth boot surface with shifts 2-6. I have HD tall boots, but always reach for the Aerostitch Combat Boots for the superior safety, support and build quality. I am able to put foot orthotics in the boots to give me full comfort when walking. Try the BMW tall socks, or the SOKZ, they are tall enough on the calf not to have the top leather touch your skin.
