  1. Okay I just got my bike running and I was having trouble shifting. After getting off and walking for awhile my feet got really sore. I never have wore mx boots or rode in them . (Yes I am a newb) these are great boots too forma predators. I was wondering if it's normal cuz I haven't broke them in and aren't used to them? I used to ride in my army issued boots all the time.
  2. Looking to pick up a new pair of boots, right now I'm stuck between the Gaerne G-React and the 2013 model Alpinestar Tech 7. I'm kind of leaning toward the Gaerne because of the stitched sole, even though in all my years of riding I've never worn out a set of soles or needed them replaced. Trying to stay under $250 if possible (I have found both of the above mentioned boots at under that price).
  3. Looking in to buying new set of boots. What do the high end boots ($300+) do/ provide that the low end boots don't. Last pair and only pair of boots I had we're tech 3's. they worked well but seemed to come apart easy. Do the more expensive boots tech 7+ provide more protection to ankle and feet? Thanks
  4. Well I don't have any and I'm going to a track and I don't want to waste all my money on them and I was wondering if I could just wear my cowboy boots
  5. I have been looking at hinged boots and found these Forma TX hinged boots for $249. I have never had a pair before. I'm looking for a some good overall boots that provide good protection at lower end price (under $240). Has anyone tried these boots. My other choices are Gaerne gx1 or Tech 3's or 661 comps.
  6. Hey guys, I'm looking for a boot in the $200 range, and am down to probably the GX-1 or the Tech 3. Can you offer any advice or recommendations that may help my decision? Thanks
  7. Is there anything that can be done to prevent a yearly repeat of yesterday? How many days before the race do these guys arrive to the area? Seems like it's never been a secret that JA21 struggles in thin air,so why wouldn't the team ship him straight to Colorado to acclimate as soon as he took his boots off at Glen Helen? Not working as hard or testing for a week seems like it would be better than a DNF and a DNS. I'm a fan of Andersons,but it seems like a championship may never be in reach if the series continues to have a round in CO and he has this monkey on his back. Could he wear a backpack of some kind and pump extra oxygen into his helmet? If possible,would it even be legal(I doubt it)? Might this hurt his value when future contracts come around?
  8. So after some careful review and consideration, I decided to go ahead and order from motostorm.it in Italy. Why? Well, not only were they about $50 cheaper than any domestic source, they also offered a boot that I couldn't otherwise get here in the states. I wanted to get some protective boots for riding, and everytime I did some "homework" on what was truly protective, it led me to motocross boots. When I was looking at bang for the buck choices, it led me to the Gaerne GX-1 boots. But when I thought about walking around in motocross boots, that wasn't so appealing. Then I found out that Gaerne makes the GX-1 boots with an enduro (Vibram) sole. PERFECT! So I rolled the dice and ordered them. It only took 8 days for them to be delivered from Italy! They were also about $50 cheaper and are a model of boot not available here in the USA. So for under $170 delievered, here are my Gaerne GX-1 Enduro boots. The size 43 fit me PERFECTLY, too....I spent a long time figuring the correct size and these are spot on. Couldn't be happier!
  9. Currently have Alpinestar Tech 8's and they are starting to get holes in them, so looking for a new pair of boots, these have always been heavy to me so I would like something a little lighter considering I am only 130 pounds and a size 12
  10. hey all, dont have a dirtbike yet, but am looking vigorously ,anyway i am wanting to do this correctly the first time around, so i am planning on figuring safety gear in on the total budget and was just wondering what is all needed for safety gear, i know a few things like helmet, chest protector, and optionally boots. is there anything special about dirt bike boots or can i just use my steel toe work boots? any way is there anything else that is needed? thanks
  11. I will be needing some new boots for this season and looking at the tcx 2.1s. Anyways I like the white boots. Only thing I don't like is how dirty and stained they get in such a short time. Does anyone have any tips or tricks that help keep white or light colored boots looking nice and new? I'm not afraid to put in a little elbow grease if it means my boots don't look years old after a couple months. Thanks!
  12. I just bought a pair of fox instincts 2nd hand in good condition, however the seller didn't tell me that the lower strap on one of the boots is broken off completely. To race at a track in France your boots have to be inspected and be in good condition, which is exactly why I bought these as my sg10s aren't in good condition. Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the entire strap? I can't find anything online and it's very frustrating as I just spend a good amount on them and they are useless to me without the strap. The first two photos are of the boot with the missing strap and the third is of the other boot which has nothing wrong with it (just for reference). Any help/ideas would be appreciated!

  14. If you have boots with metal toe plates, the staples that hold them on sometimes work their way out after enough hard miles. Here is a cheap fix that I did to a pair of Tech 8’s: Replace the staples with some #4 pan head phillips sheet metal screws. Make sure they are long enough to get a good bite, but short enough so that they won’t poke through the bottom of the sole – I used 5/8” long. My Tech 8’s required 10 screws for each toe plate, which set me back a whopping $2.15 at the local Home Depot. If you want to get fancy you can buy stainless screws for a few bucks more. The holes in the toe plates need to be opened up slightly with a hand drill (.113” bit) to accept the #4 screws. A #2 screw would probably work and save you from having to drill the holes, but Home Depot does not carry anything smaller than #4 in this screw style. When installing the screws, get a good bite by angling them slightly inward, driving them into the meat of the rubbery sole. Stop when the head of the screw just touches the toe plate – do not overtighten. If any of the screws on the bottom of the toe plate are missing, replace them with #4 flat head sheet metal screws. You will find the screws to be much more resistant to falling out than the staples, and if it does happen, they are easy to replace.

    While searching for boots I ran across these online, only available from one store in Germany, FC-moto.DE. The boots had many features which attracted my attention including a lug tread sole which would be beneficial during muddy and soggy single track riding. They were priced very reasonably and the brand was known to me from years back. The brand has since been sold to a Chinese conglomerate but they continue to produce gear. This product has absolutely zero online presence which raised flags but thankfully I had some dollars to spare and decided to take the risk. The shipper provide a tracking information and was able to ship the package from Germany to USA within one week. Very happy with shipping timeline The product is described as having: 1.68 mm suede leather with PU coating Rubber outside waterproof and breathable membrane lining TPU thermoplastic polyurethane plastic shin guard Outside/inside plastic Heel counter for protector Velcro closure Metal toe Replaceable buckle certified to EN 13634.2017 “protection footwear for motorcycle riders” Sizing is in European and was recommended by the seller has one size up. I am a size 10 US and opted for a size 44 route. Fit is comfortable And adjustable using straps. The boots are brand new and do require break and so I will update this review with further information as I wear them in. So far, I do like what I see with regards to the quality of these boots

    The Comp 5 Shorty has the comfort of a skate shoe with the coverage of a full-on motocross boot built right in. High flex and feel with solid ankle armor means you'll spend more time riding and less time icing those ankle bones.

  21. So I've been looking at purchasing some sidi's from ebay recently but I'm not sure on the sizing. I was able to try on the TA model at a shop close by and the 9.5 size fit perfect but they didn't have the srs model to try. I've heard that they fit differently as in the TA is true to size but the srs fits smaller?. Any truth to this? What size should I order without being able to try on?
  22. YO! Picked up a pair of fox comp 5's @ chaparral Motorsports for $150 and decided "Why not just dye boots to the color I want" Well, I did that! I am now a proud owner of pruple and black fox comp 5's! The only ones in existence to my knowledge, and the first to dye moto boots as google yielded NOTHING. It worked great and cost around $10 in rit dye. I may go another round to make them darker but heres some pics! I thgink they match my bike pretty well!
  23. I've been riding and racing street bikes for years and now i'm moving into MX, I'm looking for MX gear and would like to get the top stuff, i've had a few crashes on my other bikes and my gear has saved my butt several times, so I'm looking for the best. I've broken my ankle before and spent months recovering from that, i do not want it to happen again, so price does not matter. The extra money is well worth perhaps not having to recover from an injury. So, 95% of my riding will be trail riding, 5% on track, what boots would you guys reccomend? From my research I'm thinking of Sidi Crossfire 2 SRS Alpinestars Tech 10 Gaerne SG 12 Are any of these superior in protection? In Function? Is there anything else I should look at? Thank you
  24. anyone heard of these? I saw an almost new looking pair on Cl. and gonna go look at em tomorrow. How do they compare to todays gx1 boots or sg10s? I was really looking for Sg10s or Sidi boots but these seem like a good deal. What do you guys think. they need a buckle. He is asking 95 bucks. I can probably haggle him down some. What have you paid for gently used ITALIAN boots?
  25. Man did i struggle yesterday riding in my usual trails in the PNW. Tight root infested, log jumping single track with the some fast flow type stuff. It was my first day with my new boots, the Forma Dominators TX 2.0. Im coming off the Gaerne GX-1's which i loved but had to retire because the left boot started to pinch my leg right above my ankle (leather flexing in). I wrecked a good 15+ times and just could not gel with the boots at all. Couldn't feel the rear brake which caused a lot of problems. The boots are noticeably stiffer and bulkier than the GX-1. I generally ride with my right foot just hovering the rear brake when going through the tight stuff nasty stuff and use the rear brake to help with sharp cornering and downhills. Boy did that cause some problems yesterday.. The Dominator is noticeably taller and because i couldn't feel the brake i kept accidentally hitting it over bumps and such and would get thrown into the bars not expecting the sudden braking. Caused multiple washouts and over shot corners. So i adjusted my riding and stopped hovering the brake, which had me relying on the front brake when i usually wouldn't. In addition to not being able to feel anything, the soles are noticeably slippery than the GX-1. So my feet kept sliding all over the place on the pegs which was awkward especially when hitting rough sections. I definitely missed my lighter, slimmer and better gripping GX-1's but am trying to keep in mind that the Dominators need to be broken in and adjusted to on my end. The Forma are a extremely nice boot quality wise and seem more protective, but they do feel like you have a much larger boot on your foot. Anyways, Im toying with lowering the rear brake pedal a touch to compensate for the bulkier boot. I use the rear brake a lot and want to be able to feel and not hit the rear brake on accident like i use to. Hoping this will allow me to hover the rear brake successfully. Any input on whether adjusting the rear brake pedal lower is a good idea and how to make the boot less slick over the pegs would be appreciated.. Bike is a 15' YZ250FX. Thanks again
