Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Got home from NMBDR ride and mine were here. Fit well after adjusting buckles. Walked around in them some. Sat on bike to test shifting, was ok. Think they are going to be fine for me and the big pig. Great at the price. Break in needed, wished they had come 5 days earlier.

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

My foot is an 11 and that's what I ordered. I would have ordered an 11.5 if that was available. My left foot feels fine but the smaller three toes on my right foot feel some pressure. I hope/assume they will stretch a little. They feel like they need a little break in for shifting too but for the price, I think its a good risk. The best looking $100 boot I've seen.

P.S. rssmith, I'm thinking pretty serously about the NMBDR in September and look forward to a ride report from you when you get time.

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

Mine arrived earlier this week. I normally wear a 10.5 boot. I ordered the 11 and they fit great. I have not ridden in the boot yet. Boot feels fine to walk in and they are comfortable. Overall for a 98 dollar boot. Have some rides planned for early next week. Will see how they do on dual sport ride and light trail riding.

Let us know how they do!

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

These boots did great today. Rode all day (~230mi) pavement, gravel, two track and water crossings. The boots are comfy and WATERPROOF!

They seem to be well-made and sturdy.

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot

That should be a good test. No water out here to test them. Another pleasant thing, they felt lighter than they looked. Was glad to occasionally get a good product at a great price.

Re: MSR Dual Sport Boot



Is anyone with thick ankles or cankles using these successfully? I'm a size 12 footprint, but my fat ankles (10.5"/11" around) are making it hard to find boots.

(You'd think I would just pull the trigger on these for the price, but I'm getting tired of paying return shipping on stuff I can't use.)
