Kary, how much protection do ya want?
As you know, the more protection, the less walk'n ability.
The most protective MX boot can provide comfort for all day ride'n, it's the walk'n that is the issue.
For me, I use my Sidi On Roads for just that, on road. I use my Sidi Discoveries for off road.
The reason I don't use On Roads or CTB for off road is they offer no real support if ya have to put yur foot out to catch yourself on a 600 lb. beast. My ankle just rolls over in my On Roads if I do that. In my Discoveries my ankle is supported.
A second reason is the stiff sole of the Discovery, or any off road boot, allows you to stand on the pegs in rough stuff for hours with no foot pain.
I can spend 12+ hour days in my Discoveries with no problem. I just carry sandals or tennis shoes to change into when IÔÇÖm gonna be walkÔÇÖn much.
