i've had these guys for 2 years now. all the other reviews have been very accurate as far as break in, comfort and durability go. i ride 30% off road and motocross the rest. these boots started off great for both but as of about 3 months ago they have become really mushy in the ankle area when shorting or over-shooting landings while jumping.
the ankle area simply has to much flex, especially if you ride on the balls of your feet. i have week ankles from skateboarding so your milage may vary. on a positive note, they have become the most awesome off-roading boot ever. control feel is superb and buckle reliability is spot on.
this boot has great value, however i need something with more ankle support for motocross. my buddy has had SG-12's for the same amount of time and the ankle doesn't flex nearly as much.
these suckers are pricey, i hope this review helps. cheers all.
