The Gaerne GX-1 boot is the best sub-$200 boot you can buy, period. GX-1s are made in Italy, which is rare at this price point, and reflect the excellent quality you expect from Italian boots. They are protective enough for motocross, but comfortable enough for enduro, dual sport, and serious ADV use.
This new version of the GX-1 has one critical improvement: the plastic piece on the inside of the ankle area has been redesigned for better flexing. There are much deeper cutouts, this new shape allows the boots to flex more smoothly, with a little lighter action, and less bind. It is a small detail that has made a huge improvement.
These GX1 boots are light, sturdy, not too stiff, easy to walk in, and comfortable for long rides. The fit - like all Gaernes - is amazing. Durability is incredible. There are many boots at the $200 price point. However, none of them come close to these. Highly BOMBER Recommended.

Sidi Crossfire 2 TA Boots
The Sidi Crossfire 2 TA Boot is identical in features to the Crossfire SR, except it uses a stitched on welt sole (like most other off road motorcycle boots). The Crossfire SRS is more popular, but overall we feel the TA is a better package. There are several reasons: The Crossfire TA has a wider toebox than the SRS. In fact, it is a WIDE TOEBO...
