Best bang for the buck on boots
What would provide the best bang for the buck for off-road boots? I am thinking about Astars tech 3 boots for $200... but is there anything wrong with cheaper boots? How does the protection stack up against it? Input please?

Note, just doing trail riding, nothing too complicated.... no motocross involved

Should add.... on a budget, the cheaper the better

They are rated as good boots for the money. I have Tech 7's, which cost $350 and are great boots that should last many years of hard riding.

Best bang for buck hands down. Better than Tech 10s imho. Have RevZilla price match!

looking for cheaper boots, $200 is my limit... $250 is REALLY pushing it.

A* SMX 5's. Own em and love em! Can wear them all day at work without sore feet too. Pushing your budget a bit but they are worth it!

I bought some Falco 110 volt boots, which I actually wanted to use for the street. Specifically I wanted something I could walk in comfortably when off the bike.

I'm about to post them up in the classified section because they're just a tad too tight and I've already bought a different set of boots.

They list for $200 and I'd take $150 for them. I rode twice in them, size 45.

What size are you?

I don't ride in the dirt anymore (unless something goes wrong).

AStar Tech 3's are a great boot for 200 bucks I have a pair for when I ride dirt and well they saved me a few times

But if you spend a bit more Gearne's are GREAT boots
