well, I'm the lucky recipient of an early christmas present. my BF bought me a brand new pair of Rossi boots! He'd gone to the trouble of staring at the sizes written on the bottom of all my shoes until he knew my size off by heart & wanted to suprise me. Unfortunately the shop didn't have boots in girls sizes - only guys. So he took me to Grumpy's (aka Adelaide Motorcycle Accessories) so I could try some on. I tried a mens 7 (i'm a ladies 8 1/2 to 9) and it was pretty loose. SO I tried a mens 6 - VERY TIGHT!! In the end i took the advice of the bloke in the shop & my BF & got the tight ones "cause they'll stretch". Well I hope they stretch soon cause my feet hurt! it's tight across the top of my foot, not around the toes or heel. Anyway today was my first day riding to work in boots...and it's wierd! my old Mac's were thin from wear & whenever I changed gears it was with my actual toes. Now it seems my whole foot is involved here! It's hard to describe but my feet just seem...bigger...or something. I missed a few gears, thinking i'd changed when I hadn't. I really have to concentrate to do it properly. Breaking feels wierd too. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon, i'll take it easy for now, but I'm stoked I finally have some nice proper boots!!! Thanks baby!
