Fox Offroad Tracker Boots

Anyone have any experience with these boots? They are the same as the regular Tracker boots, but with a more aggressive sole. I'm thinking about picking some up from the dealership this afternoon. Do they "break-in" ? They feel awfully stiff and uncomfortable from the box. Or, this that just all riding boots?

A riding buddy of mine has the Tracker offroad boots, and his feet get pretty wet during the rainy season. I have the Fox Forma Pro boots, and with a coating of mink oil my feet stay dry. They're not totally waterproof, but the Forma Pro boots are VERY comfortable right out of the box. I paid $250, but lots of places have the 2006 model on sale now.

I looked at the pro forma boots, but wanted the cleated sole. I spend a lot of time walking the bike on my offroad excursions ops: Those MX style soles look like they are made for sliding, I'm good enough at that on my own I just placed an order through Motosports.com for the offroad trackers this afternoon. Thanks for the input

Yeah, I have a pair. They were the only boots I could get to fit my calvs at the time. I like them and they really do a good job protecting your shin. However, they are far from being even water resistant. In fact I just dropped $30 today to get a pair of sealskinz to wear when riding off road. I paid $120 for them just for comparison.
