MX boots are probably the most protection. Even the cheap ones. 4 buckles tall and lots of stiffness.
I was just looking at the Sidi Discoverys on revzilla and was wondering if anybody liked them. They seem like a good balance of on/off road, protection and cost. I looked at some other Sidis today and really liked the buckle system.
Why didn't you buy another pair of the Discoverys?
