Post subject:  Boot soles

Hello All

Anyone having problems with the sole on one boot, wearing through on the instep?

My boots have done approximately 42 hours and my left boot has nearly worn through the sole to the leather, however my right boot is showing the wear that I would expect. The last 15 hours of use have been on a new KTM, that do have 'deep' toothed pegs, but I would still expect more even wear on both boots.

My thoughts are; that I must be putting more weight on my left side?

What are your thoughts?

Cheers

Peter

I would guess the left boot moves more because of the number of gear changes.

I have had my soft soled adventure boots for about 5 years now and they are as good as new despite people claiming they wear quickly.
I do sit to ride more than most though as I don't like being knocked out by the low trees and hedges we have in Sussex.
