Well I just bought myself a pair. Of course they are not the newest model, but they get the job done! The new models look hot, but... $120. I cannot afford it Very comfy... I didn't notice a difference while shifting, and I can walk around uni just fine !! This is not a post to promote MCAS or R-Jays. Just thought I'd let you guys know that them boots are on sale, and maybe save some riders some money! http://www.mcas.com.au/_product.php?section=1&prodid=1561 The ones in black look much better.
