I’ve got the same boots and I really like them too. I’d suggest you apply a high quality leather conditioner to protect and preserve. I use Leather Honey.
I wish I had bought those too. I got the Gaerne Balance about 4 years ago which look similar without the shift lever plastic protection. Not bad boots, really like the look, but just don’t fit me well and less protective. I have Alpine Stars MX boots so at the time I wanted something more comfy to walk in and less moto when street riding and going into restaurants, stores, etc.Hahaha, no I just decided to wear them inside to break them in. But they are comfortable. 🥰
I’ve never bought used riding boots but I’ve been fortunate to find new ones someone ordered by mistake or wrong size, etc and gotten cheap deals on great MX boots.I'm a cheap ass when I can be.
My Alpinestars Tech 10 boots were $70 from a local guy who got married, had kids, and hadn't done any riding since. They're the older style and a little worn, but still in very good shape.
My Corozols were purchased through the advrider flea market. $120 shipped, couldn't pass it up. Again, a little worn, but really just into the "broken in" stage.
If you're patient and willing to buy used, there's a lot of good gear out there.
Justin workboots is what I ride in. Waterproof.All this talk about 'proper' boots sure is making me feel inadequate since I'm still wearing a good ol' pair of Justin cow pokes...I did wear some nice Fox boots back in the day when riding the CR500 but that was another lifetime ago.
I got the short version of the same boot.
You’ll like em!
Got these today. I will let you know if they are
wife got me the shorter version in black. Good boots!
