Dang almost thought it was and affordable unicorn. Now if they can make a smooth leather (suede sucks, oil soaks and doesn't run or wipe off) shell. Fire retardant liner is vague. Good price, not sure its better then a leather boot and nomex socks. I had some older really good g force shoes but any of the newer ones have fell apart. Bought 4 pairs for me and my buddies. All only lasted vegas to reno. Some one needs to test these and see. If someone made a high quality version for $130 that would be great.
If a driver wears a boot like this and the outer lugs catch just grind and round them off some.
