MX boots will offer a LOT more protection for you than any hiking books and can in many cases save an ankle or lower leg from injury that would not be prevented by hiking boots.
That said, congratulations and welcome to the forum, look forward to seeing you in DV in March.
Thanks! I can hardly wait for a Death Valley spring!
I was wearing my street "cruiser" boots - they're really not even good enough for street riding. I have a pair of Alpinestar Tech 2s on my shopping list (and a pair of Klim pants and a Motoport jacket and Happy Trails cases for my xt250 and new gloves.....and I'm pretty sure there's something else I want/need) :loll Just need to find a bank to rob!
In your helmet, no one can hear you scream.
