I'm looking into getting some new riding boots. I was given an older pair of Alpinestars Tech 5's which have treated me well. They are getting pretty warn out so I've been looking into getting a new pair. I'm looking for a little bit of feed back. In your opinion/experience what would be a good boot to purchase? I've been looking at Alpinestars Tech 7, Garne SG-12, and Sidi Crossefire. I've heard Tech 10's are really good as well. I have a buddy who has a pair of the SG-12's and he says they hurt his ankles because they squeeze them so tight. I'm just browsing as of now so any input would really help. Thanks!
