Thor MX 50-50 Boot

Thor MX 50-50 Boot

Information:

The 50/50 boot was designed and developed to provide just the right amount of coverage for situations that don't demand the extensive coverage of a standard boot. Whether you're into riding pit bikes, ATV's, dual-sport, or just light play riding, the 50/50 is the boot you’ve been dreaming about. This hybrid boot is the perfect blend of athletic shoe comfort and fit, and the rugged durability and coverage of an MX boot. Every detail has been refined to deliver the lightest, most comfortable, yet durable boot on the market. Weighing in at just 27 ounces the 50/50 boot is less than half the weight of standard boots yet tough as nails.

Features:
  • Light weight injection molded outsole with aggressive lug pattern
  • Reinforced medial area with padding for comfort against the frame
  • Contoured gaitor for increased mobility and comfort
  • Adjustable positive-lock aluminum buckles
  • Integrated toe cap/shift protector

Conclusion:

I have never used full motorcycle boots when riding ATVs.  Never been a two wheel guy, so I just ended up wearing hiking boots. Hiking boot definitely provide more protection that tennis shoes, but a bit more support would be a good idea.  I have also had a few times when my laces ended up in the sprocket or looped around the shifter.

So when I saw Thor's new 50-50 boot, I decided to give them a try.  The price is competitive with a nice hiking boot at just over $100.

The boots are pretty comfortable.  Easy to walk around camp without feeling like you have moon boots on. The buckles are easy to latch.

Riding with the 50-50 boots was great.  They aren't too clunky.  I could shift easily, but it still felt like I had great support when hitting a whooped out trail


I chose the Thor 50-50 in Tan

I'd give the Thor MX 50-50 boot a thumbs up for the type of riding I do. They provide increased protection over hiking boots, but they are comfortable to wear around camp.  If you are into big jumping or racing, these aren't the boots for you.  Still with full motorcycle boots.
