I used the search, and come up with almost nothing related to my question,..........which is, what's a good boot for <200.00? What I find locally, even Harley boots, are made over there in the non-EPA regulated country, west of Japan. I can find boots here locally that are actually made in US, like Douglas, or Whites, but,..... whooooooaaahhh!! Are they spendy, or what? I have an old pair of Alphinestars (spelling), and while they're not bad, I've always had trouble with the velcro holding. Even had them repaired with new velcro, and still, no dice. Ideas, anyone. Thanks so much.
