Choosing The Right Ride

A Guide To Buying Motocross Boots

Whether you are a fan of Gaerne, Fox Racing or Alpinestars, you can find a stylish, durable and comfortable motocross riding boot in one of these great brands. No matter what brand you are drawn to, you will want to research your options so choose the best product for your riding style. There are many things to consider when shopping for riding boots. This article explains what to look for if you are shopping for new boots.

Removable Inner Booty

A boot with a removable inner booty is beneficial in many ways. First of all, your boots won't smell as bad if you are able to remove the booty. These are also the most comfortable. Riding boots are very stiff and if the inner booty is permanently attached to the the boot's upper, it will not be as flexible or comfortable. Some manufacturers have attempted to fix this problem by making the upper softer. However, this might make the boot more comfortable, but it reduces how protective it is. Basically, a boot with a removable inner booty allows the most protection and comfort at the same time.

A Weatherproof Outer

The outside of the boot is obviously very important as well. Most importantly, you want a boot that is weatherproof. Not all boots, even if they are super durable, will keep water out. For instance, look for a boot with a trusted weatherproof material like Gore-Tex. This does not mean the material is completely waterproof, but it will keep most water out of your booty, even in the wettest conditions.

Simple Buckling System

Some newer boots have more advanced buckling systems. However, these systems are often unnecessarily complicated for most riders. If you want a product that is easy to pull on and off, make sure you test out the buckling system before committing to a boot.

A Reasonable Price Range

You can find top-of-the-line boots that are over $500. However, such expensive boots are unnecessary for most riders. This big price tag might mean that your boots have all the features, but a mid-range boot will probably be just as durable and just as functional for non-professional riders.

No matter what brand you choose, you want to make sure your boots have all of these features and fit within your price range. The various features and styles can be overwhelming, but you will definitely be able to find a great boot that meets these criteria.
