I remember having a pair of Bata Bikers in the late 70's. They were pretty much the Chevrolet of biking shoes but seemed to get the job done.

I will certainly shed a tear when they start taxing out of state internet sales, but as it is, I already pay my fair share. I count my blessings that Wa. doesn't have a state income tax. (yet)
