We are thinking of bringing in a batch of these PUMA race boots.
They have a lot of ankle protection and have good write-ups by the magazines for comfort.

I tried on a pair. They took awhile to put on but were very comfortable on the bike and easy to walk in.

These fit just like my old Alpinestars.
Please email us with your street shoe size and we will convert it for you.

There are not too many shops with these yet as the supply is limited.

can you make a comparison to the desmo model? are they just as comfortable?

I tried on a pair of the desmo's and they were more comfortable than my tennis shoes.

The Desmo is slightly more comfortable because it does not have that outer shell support --but the GP1000 is pretty close.
The GP boot is the most comfortable race boot that I have ever tried. The lace system makes it one of the best fitting boots as well.

Matt,

I've emailed you asking to see how much your discount is, and i havent gotten a reply.

I've even signed up to motowheels and i cant figure out how to see the discount.

Am I missing something?
