    I was kickstarting my KX250 today and my foot slipped and the end of the kickstart lever poked right through the side of my new Sidi boot. The boots are not leather on the inside near ankle and the arch of your foot. I now have a big hole in my boot and a bruise on my foot . I guess I will look for more leather coverage on my next pair of boots...... :ugg: Are there any ALL-leather boots?

    Man, thats cheap. Thats seems kinda soft for a motocross boot. Could have been worse, could have been a pointy stick while you were riding. I would be mad. :bang:

    Spider punched a hole in his Tech 8s last year the same way. Ended up with a good bruise where it went thru

    I too punched a hole thru Tech 8's the same way... unless there's a steel boot out there, it can happen.

    The problem I always seem to have is catching the side of my boot on the foot peg when kicking it over. I've torn the inside of 2 pair of Alpinestars that way.

    I emailed SIDI about the boot damage and they promptly responded with an offer to refund all of my money! That's a quality company. I am impressed.

    That's good to hear Air.
    Afraid there's no real fix for the ever looming hole in da boot. Tech 10's are worth a look if the piggyb is full. :cool:
