The OP has an XT250, so she will prolly not be harescrambling it, and the bike itself is pretty light (less apt to break an ankle in a fall). I think the GX-1s would prolly work very well, and they fall under her budget which is good. I do think the Gaerne SG10/12 and sidi crossfires are prolly the best (my ankles hope so with my big ass DR650! )
+1! I've got the gaerne balance oiled boots right now for general dual sporting. But I'll be picking up a pair of sg10s as soon as I've saved enough pennies now that I've got a 640 and plan to rally it.
