Good for most trails, not for WEEDY trails
on July 10, 2013
These are good boots in many ways. Very easy to get on, inexpensive, durable, good grip, good fit, no rub marks, stay on well and stay straight. However, if your trails have weeds and stickers, you will want to invest in a different boot. EVERY nook and cranny fills with foxtails, including all of the velcro, which makes it not work anymore. The inside holds almot a cup of stickers once they pack themselves in. To get them out, you must curry comb the velcro for 15 minutes each, which ruins it and pulls the stitching out. I have tried vet wrap to keep the stickers out to no avail, it just bunches up at the ankles. Bell boots might work, but they'd have to be rubber and tight around the ankle. These have only been on a few rides with me and are already becoming useless due to the stickers. I never found any review mentioning this issue, so I thought I'd try to save some people riding like trails their time and money!
