Meeting the needs of the rider is what the ideal pair of dirt bike boots should do. This means a boot that will provide comfort, protection, and functionality. Motocross footwear needs to have more protection, soles that grip foot pegs, absorb shock, much more than casual dirt biking boots While many people choose to ride in a pair of standard work boots, they will not provide the specialized dirt biking needs that riders require.
Motocross boots do more than just look cool when you are blasting around the trails or hitting up the jumps on the track. The boots are more susceptible to rocks, debris, and as falls are a regularity in racing, they need to be tough enough to withstand heat and a couple of hundred pounds of machine possibly landing on them.
We have grouped them into levels. This will make it possible for you to be able to pick the best dirt bike boot in every level that you might find yourself in
