Re: riding boots

I would go with a smaller boot, so if you wear 11 1/2 go with 11.

I wear 13 shoes and when I tried on boots I needed 12s

Re: riding boots

I wear thick MX socks for all temps, and even thicker ones for cold weather (not cold where I live very often), so I tend to buy one size up. I am a 10.5/11 in tennis shoes, so my riding boots are 12's. Works for me.

Go to a shop, and try some on with the types of socks you'll be using. Mail-order accordingly.

Re: riding boots

To the regular idiot walking into a shop, what should you look out for in a boot? Are ATV boots the exact same as motocross boots?

Re: riding boots

Generally speaking ATV boots just have a waffle botom (like work boots).MX boots have a smoother bottom. I have Answer MX boots and I have no problems. I would sudjest moveing your shifter up one spline to get the boot under it.
