    The new Alpine star Toucan boots look like a good option.

    Thanks. My left ankle has never recovered from my near fatal street crash in June, 2011 so protection is high on my list.

    The GX1's are now available in an Enduro sole in Europe at least.

    Makes it a much better boot for the DS purposes.

    My Sidi Dicovery Rain Boots kept me dry in weeks of rain in Ecuador last year. Broke them in walking around the house each day for about an hour at at at a time for a week. Easy to walk in. Not as much protection as my Sidi Crossfires, how ever I do a different type of riding in each boot. The Discovery is a wider more relaxing boot than the Crossfire, which you most definetely have to order a half size larger.

    I bought Gaerne Oiled Balance boots a year ago, and had to adjust the shifter before I could ride with them. Either I got used to the increased stiffness, or the boots softened up quickly as they broke in. Anyway, they feel just right now.

    Amazing boots, so glad I bought them.
