  1. Hi,

    Firstly, does the sole thickness vary much between boots?

    If so, are some brands better suited to shorter riders?

    Any recommendations, regarding brands would be greatly appreciated.

  2. i thinkits a mater of try them all on and find what suits.

    i tried on lots before i finally settled on mine.

    i got Alpinestars SMX goretex boots. as its wet where i live....or at least it is when there is no drought.

    it's more a race boot but i wanted the extra protection due to me dodgy ankle. But i find then failry comfortable and have worn them all day on a few occaisions. i'm about 5'8" if that helps at all
