so i want to take my MFC at Bike smart Motorcycle training and apparently thier pretty picky about the boots you have to wear has to cover the ankle, be for protection not fashion
now i dont want a full racing boot i need something i will be able to walk around in i was looking at the puma Flat v2 Boots or the Puma Testastretta II Mid Boots something like thoughs i sent them a email asking if they would work but i just get the auto response thing
so has anyone took the class from thier or is thier another class around santa clara that would be better ?

You know, I wore hiking boots. As long as they are over the ankle, I don't know that they care that much. Some guys wore cowboy boots. Some wore motorcycle boots, some wore steel toe work boots. I think its not too huge of an issue as long as its over the ankle. Other opinions?

Over the ankle isn't much of a requirement honestly. I used Icon standard boots that I got on sale for the course. Like computerguy said, hiking boots, work boots, etc. will work. I took mine with Two Wheel Safety though.

I wore military style boots. It's what I wear when I ride now actually. I went to the military surplus here and picked up some boots for law enforcement/swat. So they're comfortable to wear at work. Can run in them. If needed? And they look nice. Even tho the toe does get roughed up from the shifter, a little spit n shine works.

I noticed the problem with steel toe work boots is that you can't easily get the toe under the gear shift lever very well and you can't feel if it's shifting or not, so I went and bought some riding boots that were on sale.

I wore military style boots when I took my class, they just want you to have something that covers your ankle. The problem with hiking or work boots are that the toe area is so thick that you may have a problem operating the shifter. I think I found my class through here http://www.ca-msp.org
