Size 3 or 4 Motocross Boots!!!!

Hiya,

Looking for a pair of Size 3 or 4 Motocross Boots?

My normal MC boots are a Europe size 36.

I'm booked on a off-road course and so need a pair of motocross boots to be allowed to do it! They supply all the gear you need but I'm quite sure that they won't have such stupidly small motocross boots! I am waiting from an answer from the company but thought that I should probably just start my research as I think I know what the answer is!

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions!

Beej

have a search online Kids ride mx so you should be able to source some good boots, plus you have the added bonus that they should be much cheaper than the bigger sizes.

I would aim for a pair of the more modern softer looking boots my old mx boots are so stiff they are a pain to walk in.

Quad bike boots offer nearly as much protection but are much more comfortable and will be more useful for adventure style riding/touring

new try Wulfsport or go for second hand (foot)

with that size you should get some cracking second hand deals from kids that have quickly outgrown that size :

My wife rides with alpinestar tech 3 boots. She normally wears a 3 or 4. I think we managed to find her a size 4 in kids size.

Thanks for the replies!

The trouble I have found with the kids boots is that whilst they are cheaper lots of them are also built to fit a child's calf! With this being the case I don't really want to buy second hand as I can't try them on before! I am also trying to avoid the likes of Alpinestars as they are quite a lot more expensive! I'll have a look into Quad bike boots too... thanks!

However, amazingly the company running the off road course have managed to source a stupidly small pair of motocross boots by Wulf so I will see how I get on with those!

Thanks again!
