Motocross Boots

Motocross Boots are used by those who engage in racing motorcycles. Because the motorcycles are driven at very high speeds, a specialty boot was created to provide extra protection to the racer.


Modern motocross boots are usually nearly knee-high (about 16 inches in height) and made from a combination of leather, metal, plastic and/or composite materials to create a very form-fitting, comfortable and tight boot. To allow a rider to easily get the boot on or off, the shaft of a motocross boot is designed to open lengthwise. Multiple adjustable straps (usually 4 to 5) are on the foot, ankle and shaft of the boot to allow the rider to tighten the boot to his preferences and comfort. Some manufacturers also include an internal quick-lacing system between a soft inner leg and the outer harder shell of the boot shaft to further ensure a tight but comfortable fit.

To protect the leading edge of the boot sole against rough terrain, a metal plate is usually screwed in place. The heel of a motocross boot is typically very low: not more than 1/2-inch. A curved plastic or composite plate covers the shin of the boot to protect the rider from debris that may be thrown from the front wheel of the motorcycle. Many high-quality motocross boots have Kevlar inserts for additional strength. Kevlar is a fabric used for rigid and protective applications and is fragment resistant, lightweight and flexible.
