    check out thor quadrant boots, designed for bigger cockpit of the ATV, so probably have more calf room too

    I guess for me it comes down to what kind of rider are you. If you are an aggressive rider or are racing it then sure spend the money on the Tech 8's. If you are a casual/trail rider perhaps you don't need $450 boots and you can get by just fine with some $200-$250 fox boots. I mean I wear a helmet but I am not gonna spend the money on a $500 Shoei when a good helmet for around $200 that meets the standards will do fine.

    I get you, but I dont think its that black and white, Im a really aggressive rider and I rock tech 3s, they do what I need and I haven't had a problem with them. I know the 8s or 10s offer more protection but I dont think its necessary. FTWI You cant put a price on safety!
