Top Dual Sport Boots For Less Than $250

Check out these bargains before you buy an expensive pair of boots

Published on 02.02.2014

In the last few years, there has been an explosion of new products designed for Adventure Riders. Just a few years ago, we were limited to only a handful of Dual Sport Boot options. Now there are many high-quality and affordable Dual Sport Boots available to choose from.

We have compiled a list of the Top Dual Sport Boots that you can buy for less than $250. You won’t find exotic materials like Gore-Tex®, but these boots do offer a lot of value for the money. Compare the specs and check out the reviews to find a set of boots that meet your needs for safety, comfort and style.

Features To Look For
All-Weather: Waterproofing allows you to ride in rain or put a foot down during water crossings. The boots should be relatively tall to ensure that water or debris do not enter from the top. They also need to be breathable to ensure your feet don’t get clammy on a hot day. Dual Sport boots also need to provide enough insulation to keep your feet warm on a cold winter day.


Complete Protection: The key areas that need protection on a Dual Sport boot are the shins, toes, ankles (both sides) and heels. Protection should be adequate enough to prevent injury from rock impacts or crushing forces during a fall. A good boot will protect against strain injuries that can happen if you roll an ankle or your foot is hyper-extended. They also need to be stiff enough underfoot so that you can comfortably ride while standing on the pegs.

Understated Appearance: Ideally, you want a boot that you can wear under your jeans and go to a doctor’s appointment without looking like a Storm Trooper. They should not make embarrassing noises while walking and should allow you to walk a few blocks without getting fatigued. They should also be easy to get on and take off quickly.

Finding the Best Dual Sport Boots for You
Dual Sport Boots are designed to do a little of everything, so it is inevitable that each boot makes different compromises. Some are more street focused and offer more comfort, while others lean more towards off-road protection and durability. You will need to think about what features are most important to you when comparing Dual Sport Boots.
