You are advised to wear plain black shoes (not slip on type) or boots. Its up to you which you wear. Personally I think boots are better, but thats just me. You will need to supply them yourself.

Hope this helps

In my current job as a motorcycle mechanic, i have used numerous pairs of 6" oakley assault boots as they are very supportive, very comfortable and make a great riding boot. My only worry is that they have quite alot of fabric on and i was wondering if this is suitable. :D

Whilst in the shop the manager was trying to tell me that it looks like there a bad fit and my feet sliding about had caused the hole on the back heel, and if that is the case then they wont replace as its my fault! surely
