dual sport boot for big calves?

Hey, howdy and hi. Any of you 2 wheel throttle jockeys have a hard time finding a dual sport boot that will fit over big calves? COMFORTABLY? I wouldn't even be opposed to a shorter boot if it didn't wrap around too tightly. If you'ns have any thoughts on this I'd appreciate a little feedback. Thank ya'll for your time.

I suggest Sidi Discovery Rain. I have big calves and wide feet, and you know what they say about that...

He must wear Sidi Discoverys!!!

They are not very stiff though if your looking for MX style protection.

MY $0.02

I just got a pair of the new Sidi Armada boots, and they have lots of room around the calves. I don't have huge calves, and they're actaully a bit loose on me, but I guess I'll start wearing my pants tucked into the boot...

I too have big calves and wide feet. My Gaerne Oiled Balanced are amazingly comfortable for riding and walking (the latter being unusual for riding boots, I bet).

Alpinestars Scout Waterproof Boots have a lot of room in the calf.
