Comments about Gaerne Balance Oiled Boots:
Would not use for motocross racing where someone could run over your foot, BUT for every thing else these are great. I have to be able to flex, supinate, and dorsiflex my foot to shift with ease...these allow that. They work great on a motocross track when you don't need extra protection of being in a race. plenty of protection otherwise.... especially when you grew up riding hard in tennis shoes for crying out loud.

One word. WATERPROOF!
See all my reviews
I use these for my weekly off roading adventures. They're incredibly comfortable. The fit perfect to shoe size. They have enough rigidity and protection for off-roading, but NOT mx racing. They're warm and dry. Let me give you an idea about how waterproof these boots are. I was riding some trails with my buddy today, and we came to a large puddle. I decided I'd go through first. As soon as I enter it, I sink 3 feet down and fully submerge my wheels. Engine stalls out. Turns out, this was a deep puddle. Luckily, there was a piece of plywood in the puddle, and that's what I stood on as I yanked my bike from the puddle. The entire time, my Balance oiled boots were FULLY submerged in water up to the very top.(but not over the top) and my feet stayed warm and dry.Gotta love em!
My Favorite Boots
By Atomic Bob
from Rockledge, FL
This is my second pair of these boots. I bought a spare pair to ensure I would never need a pair and find out they were no longer made. The Most comfortable boots Ive ever worn in 30 plus years of riding. Quality throughout. These are perfect for dual sport or trail riding. I would choose a boot with more protection only for motocross.
Great all-around boots
from Colorado Springs, CO
These are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. They need little to no break-in time. I ride trials (which these boots are designed for) but I also ride Single-Track on a KTM 300 XC-W, Dual-Sport on a KTM 690 Enduro R and Adventure riding on a Triumph Tiger. I would not suggest these for MX racing as they don't have as much ankle protection as an MX boot but for trail riding, trials riding, DS or Adventure riding you can't find a more comfortable boot.
