Have purchased two new styles of zip up and velcro close type safety ridding boots but dont seem to have much luck in getting either pair of boots to shift the gear shifter right. Both pairs of boots feel really tight and have an extra layer of leather on top to take care of wearing the boot top leather off. I normally just ride with my dessert storm type military boots and have no problems with them. Has anyone tried to lengthen the top arm on the gear shifting toe piece? I have had other riders tell me to just wear the new boots for 3 or 4 days all day long to get the feel for them, that didnt seem to help either. At a loss here guys. Any help would be appreciated.
