Default Heads up... great deal on race boots at STG

Top-of-the-line TCX race boots are being blown out at STG right now. R-S2 Evo. $199 for a boot that was $429.

Don't need boots at the moment but this is a high-wear/consumable item... just grabbed a pair to keep on hand.

I had 40k on a pair of Super techs. What the hell is high consumable about that?

Soles wear out, for one thing, in between aggressive pegs and schlepping around. My street boots are about six years old and pretty much cooked on that front. Plus, kicking about on gravel (Palmer) and in the rain (everywhere) takes its toll on footwear.

Track boots are of course holding up better because they don't get worn as much, but they won't last forever either. It's a killer deal, so why not?

6 years out of a boot sounds pretty good to me. And the soles are replaceable on many of the higher end boots. Did it with my Sidis.

that's why I bought my Sidi vortice. Everything that can touch the ground is replaceable. In fact, the part of the sole that is on the peg constantly just unscrews for a new part

The soles are replaceable, but by the time I finally wore through the sole on my astars smx the rest of the boot was worn as well. Can't complain I got 7 years out of the things. That's counting teaching msf too lol.

I want a set of these, but just got a new set of A* SMX Plus' last year. Helps that they don't have the black boot in my size, so I am passing. Anyone know if Mad Scientist Moto is running the same promo? He was a TCX seller right?

I tried these on when Mike brought them to Sliders a year or so ago - i remember noticing how very very similar to my A* SMX Plus boots.

Oh and yeah, WRONG SUBFORUM, ANDREW!
