In many parts of the country, summer weather arrived last month and for those under a blanket of cold for much of 2014, the sun is welcome relief.

This is also the time of year when dirt bikers get ready for a long season of riding. Replacing or upgrading parts is common before hitting the track and so is taking inventory of your protection. To get maximum protection from accidents the dirt bike protection you wear must fit right and comfortably.

So before you head out this weekend try on all your gear and check for wear. Old gear may be comfortable but if it's been banged up too much over the years, it's time for replacements. We've previously covered 2014's best helmets and riding gear.

Now we tackle the Best Motocross Boots of 2014. For additional information on sizing, features and help on choosing the right pair check out our Motocross Boots Buying Guide.

The following 2014 MX Boot picks bring back some familiar names and models and you'll no doubt see your favorite riders in Motocross wearing a pair. Check out the selections below, listed by manufacturer. Prices vary so remember that the best Motocross boot is the one that fits you well providing ample protection while maintaining comfort in riding.
