if you're serious about riding, forget the shoes and go with boots!

I stripped my feet nails many times with accidental bad landing from jumps or even cornering..

I use Alpinestars No-Stop boots; it's a trial boot, a lot comfortable with plenty of protection for you feet without the dislikes of a big plastic mx boots.;)



trust me,better spend some more bucks, after all its for you safe.

I know it's a lot more comfortable in some DC's but man i have seen and heard of some ankle/foot carnage. Some of it could have been avoided with at least some 50/50's or full boots. I ride in 50/50's and there have been a few times i was sure glad to not be wearing my old DC's like old pine stumps just barely catching toes... It's about enough to want to save up for some real boots



I would at least get some mid boots if i were you

i took them from a A.stars rep here in Italy (Alpinestars is italian..)but the brand is huge in U.S.



Yes, i think that you will find them easily in the US.

Those are the boots that Pingree and McGrath uses when they ride minis..

Its a full leather boot lower than an mx boot (only three closures instead of 4..).

I just broke my foot two weeks ago after catching my toes on a stump with my foot on the peg. No more shoes for me but I've got to get something else for boots cuz my tech 8's are too stiff.
