Ehm...no...

What i'm after is most protection without looking like robocop. These boots are the exact opposite.

I have TCX boots for casual rides and I think they look awesome. No one suspects they are motorcycle riding boots.



Their race boots are actually the most comfortable I've worn as well.

Interesting, they look slim, i wonder what kind of protection they offer.

Yes i did.Although, this second time i paid some more attention!!

No to these 3


This is kinda better, i'm going to keep this for feature reference.


I'm using A* Blacktops at the moment, but i remember struggling to find something i liked. This was the closest i got.

Fuck I wear my SMX1/2's to work. No comments from work-mates and I was hoping for some well apart from the fact that they're red with white sliders *lol*. And yeah, I visit cafes all the time (no robocop comments, but plenty of idiots clad in Lycra). They are so bloody comfy.
