    astars tech 10s for me, they were really stiff in the beginning but the are nice now, buckles are a pain though, you have to hammer on them so they lock properly, the pry them off when youre done

    My only pointer is DO NOT buy fox trackers. I had them for 6 months and they weren't even close to waterproof. the first puddle i hit my feet were soaked every time. if you only ride desert where there is no water go for it, but any water at all and it will find it's way to your socks. I have alpinestars tech 8's now and my feet are very happy.

    I love my SG10's, Ive had mine for a good 3 years of hard motocross and they are still amazing. I know they would be just as good for trail riding.

    the thor 50/50 boots are prolly a half step above my caterpillars lol, interesting, havent seen them before.

    had other boots before, when i rode 2 wheels, just they never flexed enough for me on my quad, seemed to bind. and i didnt wanna spend 300+ on boots to ride in the woods. ill have to look into those.
    built 400 ex 461, all done up, sleeeeper. 47hp, 32lb/ft... sold

    450xc, baldwin head w/Ti valves... motoworks full system... never done...
    i may ask a lot questions, but i also know some things.
    i dont capitalize, or punctuate or use spell check, but i will joke sometimes about spellcheck

    I've had both Fox F3 and Sidi. I love the Sidi for the flex and comfort. The Fox felt plush but stiff and hard to maneuver in. I now use the Sidi Crossfire and feel they are the best full height boot and wont ever go back to Fox.
    This is a personal choice everyone needs to make it them self...try them all on, everyones foot is different and every boot will fit different.

    How durable are the Fox F3's? I love my Forma's but they're starting to show some wear and I found out a couple of month's ago that I can log into the Fox dealer site since they have some kind of deal worked out with my employer. I figure I can't go wrong for less than $150.

    Thor 50/50 for rec riding only...dont race in 'em. lol. they have the hard solid soles like a normal boot and they buckle on the "high tops" part also so when you're jumping the foot pegs dont eat your foot arch and support ankle really well. also if you dont run heel guards...bad choice of boot.they're my fav for the dunes too

    I dont race, just woods... hence y i wear my cat boots now lol. i could see the shortness being an issue tho.

    Just got another set of gaerne sg10s. Man these boots work well for me. Little to no break in time and very easy to move around in with that pivot system. My last pair lasted 2 full years of riding, and still are decent back up boots.

    I have a pair of the thor 50 / 50 for duning and trail riding, they are perfect in that application and not as hot to wear as full boots. My next pair of race boots will be another set of gaernes for sure
