I don’t like to write alot about specific gear, other sites do a better job of that. If you are really into it you already have a system (email alerts, weekly checks, etc) to monitor your favorite stores/online sites. But as a female with small-ish feet, I wanted to have a post about my boots. As you may have read earlier (https://scooterfan.wordpress.com/2007/10/26/atgatt/) my boots were a big help in a minor accident. My current sneakers are size 7.5, and I wear a Eur 38 in these Teknic Stinger Boots.
Iron Pony (here in Columbus!) has these women’s boots on clearance. According to their website they still have them in sizes (Eur) 36-40, for $60. If you aren’t in Columbus you can still buy them online. http://www.ironpony.com/ironponydirect/product.asp/ImageName/TEKNIC-STINGER-BOOT-LADY.jpg/Brand/TEKNIC/Class2/Footwear/Class3/Street%20Boots-Womens
I got these boots because they don’t look crazy (“I ride offroad and have 10 different colors on my boots!”) but they also like more serious than some boots (“Aren’t my boots so chunky and cute???”).
