Thanks for any input
Flexibility is key. You can't move properly in the MX boots.
I went through the same thing last year. I went from my Sidi Crossfire MX boots to some old Sidi dual sport (street really) boots I had laying around before I finally ponied up the cash for some Alpinestars No-Stop trials boots. I've been very happy. They've got plenty of flexibility and enough protection to make me feel comfortable.
$$ well spent, IMO.
Where in NJ are you?
