I've run into two significant problems while wearing a full height riding boot. First, they make the task of walking even a menial distance frustrating at best. Second, pushing the gas and brake pedals on a SxS is nearly impossible. Over the last month, I've spent many hours in a pair of black size 13 Alpinestars Tech 2 boots. For me, the Tech 2's have taken the place of two pairs of boots. In the past, I've always packed a pair of riding boots to ride ATV's and a pair of hiking boots to drive a SxS. Those days are officially over.
