    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.

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

    I use Fly Maverick ATV boots and love them. They have saved my ankle once so far. I got mine for $80 I belive from rockymountainatvmc.com

    What size are you?

    I have some tech3's in a size 11 - white - great condition but dirty.

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