where to try on NEW Riding Boots?

so my old axo Boxer dirt riding boots might see only see one more summer of riding. they are getting pretty hammered. not bad for 99 dollar boots, however i want to upgrade in boots and my biggest problem is i dont like buying online without trying on. i have tried some boots on at dealers. not to many to choose from. not much of a selection. and nothing i found that fit right for the money im not looking to spend around the 200ish maybe up to 300 max. any dealers, or stores around skagit county that have a decent selection of boots? or am i stuck to online hope for the best and return if they dont fit?

input is much apreciated

Thanks.

Boots

I know Atomic-Moto which is an online store is local to Bend. I heard they have a store too but I cant seem to find it.

Apparently is is near the round about on Newport near Broken Top Bottle shop. Where College meets Newport.

If you find it let me know! I am looking to try on and buy some boots too.

Find the boots you want and talk to Jose or Holly at Skagit, they'll order them in for you, if you like them, buy them, if not, they'll either return them or put them on the shelf.

Not a lot of dealers in this part of the world are going to stock a complete line of MX boots.

I have heard some dealers will match on line prices. Might be worth a try.

Atomic-Moto

VT-OregonTransplant, Atomic-Moto is all the way around back and at the lower level. Brian is really cool, has lots of riding experience riding and has just as much product knowledge. We talked boots for quite some time before I made my decision thanks to his advice, I have no regrets! The shop isn't super visible because he's primarily online sales. I'll introduce you to him next time you're available.

So you want to try boots on in a brick & mortar and then buy online?

The dealer down in Woodinville usually has a pretty good stock of boots and they will work with you at the cash register. Talk to Austin at the parts desk,,,,,,

I bought the Gaerne from Brian, I like em. Holding up better than the Boxers so far. They buckled easy with the MSR knee guards I used to have (do not recommend), but are a bitch to buckle up with the cheapy Answer guards I have.

When I bought my boots from Smokey Point Cycle Barn, I was going to get them to match online prices, but they already had a better price than I could find online by about $5, so I bought them there.
