Most of the modern versions today come in heights nearly to knees and in a various palette of colors.

As already mentioned, these type of boots are designed for motocross riders, as well as off-road and all-terrain vehicle riders. This means that their crucial purpose is protecting the rider’s feet while doing all sort of stunts. We have all seen some dangerous ones sometimes. So, it is extremely important for them to be as safe as possible.

Motocross boots are very stiff and manufactured in combinations of leather, metal and plastic. For them it’s important to be as well both comfortable and tight. To help them being even more tight, there are usually several straps available, too. Additionally, a curved plastic covers the shin of the boot, to offer more protection from eventual debris being thrown from the front wheel.

Depending on the type of vehicle you choose and the terrain that you plan to ride on, there are several types available.

The most popular ones are surely the motocross boot, the trail or enduro boot, the moto trails boot, and the thumpster boot.
