Recommended MX Boots

Im looking for some good and comfortable semi-flexible MX/ off-road boots for long trail ridding. I haven't owned a pair in a long time and Im looking for some black boots with white and or red in the $100- $200 range.
What do you recommend and where? I went by Honda of Houston and was very disappointed with their selection.

I have some BRAND NEW Tech 8's sz 43. They're white/black, with a brown "elbow patch" on the inner calf.

They're not flexible, but they're new and they're in your price range!

In your price range you're going to have a hard time finding something comfortable, flexible and willing to take trail abuse. Gaerne, Fox (instinct) or A* (tech 7 or 10) and Sidi are good boots but you'll need to spend some coin for some decent ones.

100-200 for good MX boots?

Not gonna happen, but then again, we will have to define good.

Like above Gearne, and Sidi are my go to boots. My Sidi crossfires are right at......10 years old. $500...whats that $50 a year?

I dont see them getting replaced anytime soon.

Buy once cry once with MX boots
