Isn't that a dirt boot? If so, I'd say probably not very comfortable.

Used to use those boots when i raced the 125 class. I went thru more pairs of thos boots than tires. I also got cheaper than anybody else could get em for about 40 bux a pair. I serisouly went thru 5 pairs a season. Most comfortable boot on the market for me even of the tech 8's and agv i started to used when i raced the 250 a


WOT is more than just a throttle position, it's a LIFESTYLE

Yes those are dirt boots. Yes they will work and they will provide very good protection! The only problem is, motocross boots are thicker in the toe and you may have problems shifting a street bike with them. You might need to adjust your shift lever. Other than that, you're good.

O'neal=dirt bike gear

Pepboys=

2 reasons I've keep looking 4 something else.

They wont be as comfy on longer rides. The bottom is not made to giv you a firm grip (no sliding) when you go to put your foot down on concrete. Also just a lot of other little differences between dirt and street boots that people just dont realize.
