Hey dude's I've been trying out a new pair of boots called 50/50's produced by motocross apparel manufacturer 'Thor', basically they are a cut-down pair of motocross boots; I think they were primarily designed as a boot for the minbike craze 'Fast Fifties' (Thumpstar type riders) but I feel that the 50/50 should stand for 50% road, 50% dirt. They have two quick-release latches for quick on/off, they come in four colour combinations: white with red trim, white, black with red trim & wheat (tan) with black trim. They are not waterproof and appear to breath well; my feet aren't cold in this winter weather though. I think they offer incredible protection, the other night on the Mystery Ride, I cut a corner a little tight and got my foot caught between footpeg bracket and a bluestone curb; the force was enough to kick the bike up with me & a passenger aboard. I felt my foot jammed in place but no pain, I know that any other lighter footwear would have seen me with a broken foot. The boots were wierd to wear at first, just like most new things (motocross boots especially) but now I love wearing them, they are great to ride in. They retail for $198 a pair. I guess 'beauty is the eye of the beholder' but I think they look trick, it's a real modern, stuntrider, freestyler type look; if you're a stunter, I reckon your gunna love these!
