Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

These look interesting. Burbo, how tall are the pair you have? Do they run true to size?

Does anyone know if the "D30 ankle caps" offer adequate ankle protection?

Certainly can't beat the price!

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Are the buckles metal or plastic?

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

These are calf height(tall). Seem true to size. Same as Sidi Discovery boots I have. Protection appears adequate. The buckles are plastic but appear to be strong. Not waterproof but I bought these for summer riding. Without goretex they seem to be a little cooler. I wore them to work last week to break them in. Actually comfortable to walk in.

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Mine show as shipped, tracking not too good. Everyone who responded about receiving theirs over on AdvRider has been pleased. Be nice to have, I think. Somewhere between a full on MX boot and my Wolverine work boots. Shin guards and ankle protection will be nice.

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Mine are on the way. Spent a few more bucks and got free shipping. Tracking can be done much better through Google. Just Google "UPS Tracking" then copy and paste your tracking number. Thanks for the info, I just got a new WR250r and I think these boots will work great for dual sport and light trail riding. pk

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Boots came in today. Guy at the Post Office kinda hurt my feelings. He carried them up and then asked me if he needed to get someone to carry them out for me.

Well, did you try them on, or did you need somebody to open the box for you?

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

James, ya need one of those long handle shoe horns to get the darn things on? Lol

Tell me what you think of the ankle protection, please. If these offer mo protection there than my Gaerne's-- I think I'll get them and save the G's for street.

The ankle protection seems to be pretty good with a hard outer disk and ample padding inside around the ankle. The foot bed is very comfortable and seems like they would be good to walk around in. The uppers are fairly stiff and athough there is good outer shin protection the inner area of the shin could have a little more padding. The sole is stiff and with a cleated bottom.

You have however asked the wrong person. I have been riding in steel toe work boots so long I don't really appreciate MC boots. Rode the NC yesterday and they just didn't work for me. Missed several upshifts and wound up shifting with my heel. Would have to move the shift lever up to work for me. Then I sat on the DR just to get a feel, and couldn't get my feet off the pegs. The cleats on the soles and my stock DR pegs just didn't geehaw.

The buckles are just OK in my opinion.

Overall I think it is a pretty good boot for someone other than me. I had been considering Gaerne Balance and kind of wish I had gone that direction.

And no on the shoe horn. They are actually on and off fairly easy. YMMV

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Thanks James. Arkansas has been tough on the current boots. I might need a new pair now!
