A big part of my riding these days is trail, so I like to ride in a boot that gives me
good feeling with the gearlever and brake pedal. I do like to have good protection for my feet and ankles but can’t stand feeling restricted or uncomfortable when I spend a long day on the motorcycle.
Then I read the features list: “Constructed from high-quality materials chosen for their weight, strength and value. Optimized plastics are thicker where support and reinforcement are needed and tapered in non-critical areas. A one-buckle-height shinplate wraps across the shin and instep to guard the front of the foot. Instep panels are long enough to fit a wide range of calf and leg sizes. Four moulded buckles fl oat on their bases, allowing unrestricted alignment. Steel shank that adds comfort and support.”
I have tried them on and adjusted the buckle straps to length, they feel reasonably stiff, as new boots generally do, but otherwise fit really good. I will wear them around the shed for a few hours to break them in. After that I will hit some trails to see if they are as good value as they look and how they stand up to my abuse.
