Nice link.

I have not tried any of these on, so I am not sure how comfortable they are to walk in. These boots are definitely lighter and are still very protective, so definitely good choices. I would still consider the benefits of a hinge- no MX boot will be more comfortable than a hinged one to walk in, though it comes with a steep price. Honestly, if one is not really walking around a lot, Id go for the GX-1 listed on that link; looks like a great boot. If you plan on doing super long trips or walking around a lot, either get hinged MX boots, or bring a pair of hiking boots

**EDIT** Ignore my stupidity. Get the GX-1 for sure! It is hinged- I totally missed that part. Great link biensur! Good price, easy to walk in, good brand.
