Gaerne SG-12 Boots

Price: $529.99

The Gaerne SG-12 includes features like the Razorback Pivot System, full-length grip guard, low-profile reinforced toe box, supercross shank, memory foam inner lining and more. Two of the things that make the SG-12 go above and beyond are the size-adjustable shin plate that accommodates knee braces and larger calves, and the Dual Stage Pivot System. This gives the boot a high level of comfort and protection compared to most others.

Fox Racing Instinct Boots

Price: $549.95

The Instinct boot offers the best features that Fox has available in a motocross boot. One of the highlights is the proprietary Duratac compound on the sole and inner-calf areas. This rubber-like material is both durable and tacky (hence the name); it works great and lasts a very long time. Other features include the biomechanical hinge system, thermoplastic polyurethane panels, low-profile toe box, sweat-wicking microfiber construction, ball-and-socket buckles that pivot with movement, low-profile chassis and more.

Sidi Crossfire 2 SRS Boots

Price: $545.00

The Crossfire 2 SRS features a dual-hinge ankle protection system, an adjustable calf opening, a high-grip gaiter, a malleolus bone external guard plate and a mesh inner lining made from Cambrelle and Teflon. One of the big appeals of the Crossfire 2 SRS is that all of the thermoplastic polyurethane panels are bolted on and can be replaced individually. The MX sole is also replaceable; you can even swap it out for a supermoto or adventure sole depending on how you ride.

Alpinestars Tech 10 Boots

Price: $599.95

Of all the boots that Alpinestars develops, the Tech 10 represents the pinnacle. One of the most unique attributes of the Tech 10 is the inner-bootie design that provides torsion bars for additional ankle support. A thermoplastic polyurethane blade system is also built into the shin and calf for even more ankle support. The boot is constructed with full-grain leather, moisture-wicking microfiber and TPU panels to make sure that it is both highly comfortable and highly protective.

Gaerne G-React Boots

Price: $299.99

The G-React carries the same inherent quality that Gaerne is known for. The rubber grip guard helps you stay on the bike, and it helps deflect exhaust pipe heat. The aluminum buckles are easy to open and close. Thermoplastic polyurethane panels protect the calf, shin and foot. The G-React also has a slim profile despite the level of protection it provides.

Fox Racing Comp 8 Boots

Price: $299.95

The Comp 8 is an excellent boot, with injection-molded plastic that offers protection in the shin plate, calf guard, medial and toe cap. A steel shank in the midsole adds extra support. The dual heat panel uses a stickier compound on top and a harder compound on bottom for both control and durability. The buckle system is the same as Fox’s top-grade Instinct boot with a two-in-one lower strap design. The Comp 8 also utilizes the Fox-exclusive Duratac outsole.

$314.95

The Fly Racing Sector boot includes a single-compound rubber sole, an inner rubber heat guard and 3D mesh comfort lining.

Sidi X-3 SRS Boots

Price: $395.00

The X-3 offers a professional-level of quality at a great price. Its inner heat shield, nylon insole, plastic toe cap, lower buckle guard and Cambrelle® lining all contribute to making the X-3 an excellent MX boot. To ensure the X-3’s life is as long as possible, all of the bolt-on parts are replaceable – including the SRS sole. In fact, SRS stands for Sole Replacement System. There is also a non-SRS version of the X-3 if you want a boot without this sole-replacement feature at a slightly lower price point.

Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots

Price: $349.95

The Alpinestars Tech 7 boot emphasizes quality with both protection and comfort. It utilizes the arrowhead-style cam buckles which are both self-cleaning and self-adjusting. It features thermoplastic polyurethane panels, impact-deflecting honeycomb rubber inserts and a biomechanical hinge, all of which contribute to the Tech 7’s CE certification. The wide-entry aperture, ergonomically profiled forefoot and toe-box, flex zones and microfiber gaiter all contribute to its comfortable feel. Some pro-level riders wear the Tech 7, and with a list of features like that, it’s not hard to see why!

Youth sizes are available.

Intermediate Motocross Boots

The intermediate category is where budget and quality meet, making these boots an exceptional value. Some brands’ options begin in this category, so it isn’t unusual to still find the term entry level applied to some of these boots as well. If you’re looking for a great boot with a large number of features, these are excellent choices.

Fox Racing Comp 5 Boots

Price: $199.95

Although considered Fox Racing’s entry-level boot, we’ve put the Comp 5 in the intermediate category because it offers high level of quality compared to some other options. The Comp 5 includes easy-to-use aluminum alloy buckles, a durable plastic shin plate and a bonded outsole. However, one thing that really makes it stand out is a very high comfort level and short break-in period. The Comp 5 is known for offering an exceptional price in a boot that still provides a number of excellent features. Perhaps this is why it’s one of our bestselling boots across all categories.

Womens, youth and kids sizes are available.

Gaerne GX-1 Boots

Price: $215.99

Gaerne carries a prestigious reputation, and it isn’t willing to make unnecessary compromises with any of its boots, including the GX-1. That’s why even the GX-1 is made in Italy with superior raw materials. It’s comfortable and lightweight, and it features a light-alloy buckle system. It utilizes a reinforced heel counter, durable shin plate, anti-abrasion fabric and alloy buckles. The GX-1 is stiff – like a motocross boot should be – but still flexible enough to appeal to other disciplines as well, like trail riding. It is known for a short break-in period that benefits from a high comfort level.

Thor Ratchet Boots

Price: $189.95

The selling point of the Thor Ratchet boot is clear. Instead of using traditional buckles (a major complaint with many motocross boots, especially in the less expensive categories), Thor borrowed the ratchet system already present in other industries and placed it on a motocross boot. This makes it easy to get a secure fit. The Thor Ratchet also includes features like a split-grain leather calf guard, leather chassis construction, a bio-foam lined interior and more.
