Crash106 Posted January 6, 2012 Report Share Posted January 6, 2012 What kind of boots are required for CSS? I usually wear nylon hiking boots with padded ankles. I have 6" and 8" version that offer IMHO excellent protection and walking comfort. I had planned to buy some "road racing boots" for school. Today I tried on 4 pairs. Two I could not even get on my feet, even going a full size too large. The second 2 fit okay, and would offer fine protection in a crash. They were also wretched toture devices to walk in. There is no possible way I could wear them around the mall or a state park or even out to dinner. ..... So, do I HAVE to buy those clunky leather ankle braces to attend CSS? ..... Can I wear lace up boots instead? ..... If not, can you recommend acceptable boots for school that a normal person could wear out to dinner and a movie? I know they USED to make walkable touring boots back in the dark ages--you know-the seventies? I just haven't seen anything like that in the stores lately. Thanks.
