Post Happiness comes in an A* box - boots
So I've come to realize (not first-hand fortunately) that I need boots with more ankle protection.. specifically, protection against the ankle rolling in a crash. So after trolling google and ebay for a while, this came in the mail:

What's better than an Alpinestars boot box?

When that box contains a pair of Sidi ST Air's! :rich: Guy had bought 'em, rode with em for a little, and found they were just a touch too small. They look very lightly used...the stickers are still on the insoles! $210 and they were mine. :woot:

Plus, I can get rid of the Red/Blue Sidi Vertigo's that don't go with my colors... :loser:

You kill me. You have the latest and greatest tech devices, as well as knowing how to use them, but you shop for personal protective gear at the discount store!?! :fred:

When I bought the Vertigo's (hardly discount store, c'mon..), I didn't really see the need for these exo-skeleton type boots.. Older and wiser now.. (and heal more slowly)

I beat you ...$56 barely used from ebay! And they came with a box of expired condoms inside one of the boots. Your guess is as good as mine about that!

Good score...I will be in the market for a new set maybe next year.
