i have a* smx plus boots. great design/construction. got em 2 yrs ago, i feel they will last a while. a* boots are quality :fact got em @ cyclegear for 3bills. they ran a size smaller then my regular shoe size (if you can, try on boots b4 buying if u plan to purchase online. or else you'll have to play the return game)
as far as pants, i have a 1 piece leather sidi suit. again, try on different pants @ a local shop/cyclegear etc. if you research online moto shops, you can find good deals if ur patient. good luck!
