    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!!!:rofl

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

    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.
