I've had the Oneal Element for 2 years.. Very sturdy, and comfortable. Not as stiff as some full MX boots but alot of protection.. I will buy again when I wear these out.

I have been wearing cheap Element boots for many years. I can't stand lug soles so those linked wouldn't work for me. But they appear otherwise identical. Which means for a price point boot they will do a good job. I think they are the best bargain boot. The metal guards will earn you some funny looks walking through the coffee shop or barbeque joint though.

How do the oneal boots fit - If I wear a 14 in Nikes, will the 14 oneal be close? And are they waterproof?

Ok

Yes,

I have them for trashing and frequent riding. I like them. I bit bulky, broke in quickly, cheap, and offer pretty good connection. Also snap on with MX pants, heavy socks alot easier than my Alpinestars.

Can't really go wrong, I've thrashed mine for over a year and still hold up fine.

I got a pair for my girlfriend to start riding in and they're fine. Great bang for the buck.

the wife had a pair for about a year, found them to be worth what she paid.

Moved up to a better brand when she felt like she was riding enough to warrant better boots with more protection.

Sold the boots for only about a $20 loss.

Hers were heavy and kind of cheaply made. but only cost her $89 new

I ride in them. Fit well, comfortable. They get hot and humid quick on hot days, but they are MX boots. I like how available replacement part are.

thanks y'all. I think i'm gonna give them a try, or at least order them and take a close look. It says there are molded plastic plates, just doesn't specify if its at the shin, heel, ankle or what.
