I need some boots and was wondering what you guys use????

Sidi Discoverys. They are more like a true dual-sport boot as opposed to a MX boot, so kind of a mix between day to day comfort and protection. Great boots.

Oneal elements for 56 bucks off ebay...brand new. Were initially quite stiff...but broke in quickly after I got them wet. They are pretty comfortable...I have no complaints.

Alpinestar Vectors. they are amazingly comfortable, and lighter than an MX boot.

yeah - was looking at the Oneal boots and was wondering how they were...the price looks good :thumbsup:

And I do not race or ride MX - only trails....but hard trails, nasty mountain singletrack :devil:

For the money....you can't beat them. Practically throw aways. But I think they will last for quite a while...at least for me since I don't get off road with them near as often as I would like.

My black Alpinestars Tech 4 AT Treaded (Enduro) boots arrived yesterday. I went out in them last night for the first time - lots of grip on mud and gravel and flexible enough to let my foot move a little.

And I look like Neo from the Matrix! :thumbsup:

There is no spoon! :devil:

I've used Oneal Elements for the last year. They're quite stiff when new (most are), but as someone else mentioned they broke in quickly as I hit huge puddles on most rides. They flood quite easy so if you're in a wet environment plan on having wet feet from start to finish. Overall I like them and thought they were a great value. I don't know about E-bay, but I got mine from this site and I noticed they are on sale; http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/item.aspx?style=705&department=205&Division=2

I bought a pair of Sidi Discoverys yesterday and am anxious to try them. I've heard nothing but good things about them; http://www.dgy.com/cgi-bin/shopper.cgi?preadd=action&key=B000SIDIDIS

Good luck!

Alpinestar Tech 8's which replaced Sidi flex forces. I like them both, but the Sidi's dug into my calves.

When I went in to the local dealer to try on boots so I could order them online f9or less $$$$ I found that my normal size 11 foot is to large for the 11 boots. Do most brands run a little small :excuseme:Also noticed that most brands only come in full sizes,,11 to small and 12 a little big.. :thinking:any input on sizing

Sidi onroad Sympatex for mellow rides. Very comfortable and totaly waterproof.

Sidi SRS motocross for dirt and more radical DS rides. Super comfortable from new, no breakin required. Also the most waterproof MX boot I've owned.I've gone thru a lot of boots over the years, and these two are keepers.

Colorado,

I bought the Elements in the same size as the shoes I wear (size 10). If anything, they were a little too big. I tried on my brother's Sidi street boots and ordered the same size in the Discovery (9.5 or 44). His street boots are the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. They feel like they're formed to my foot. I'm hoping that the Discovery's I ordered will fit the same.
