I used this boot for dual-sporting and trials, but I also went on a real dirt bike trail ride wearing them. To be honest, I only wore them on that trail ride because I was recovering from an ankle injury and I couldn’t get my foot into a normal boot, but with the zipper, I could slip right into the 1000 Elsinores. These fit my feet perfectly; I wear a 10.5 in normal shoes, and, since they come in half sizes (unlike most moto boots), I got a pair of 10.5s. They feel like a nice pair of construction boots once on, the toe box is roomy but not overly so, the heel is comfortably rounded inside, and the arch has a good amount of support. Above the ankle, the fit is slimmer than off-road boots, and you’d be hard-pressed to get shin guards in them, but since they are shorter than typical boots, this wasn’t a problem for my particular knee/shin guards.
