I’ve completely fallen in love with my Thor 50/50 boots. I’m not a big fan of wearing full motocross boots for light or aggressive trail riding and haven’t found utility, or rubber boots to provide enough protection or support for my feet and ankles. However, Parts Canada kindly provided a pair of 50/50’s and I haven’t put anything else on since.
These boots fit as comfortably as a high-cut running shoe thanks to lightweight contoured gaiter and cushioned ankle support and tongue. The positive-lock aluminum buckles snap firmly across the top of your foot and around the ankle and adjusts easily to your preferred snugness much like a full motocross boot would.
The injection-molded sole has an aggressive lug pattern that grips firmly to the floorboard and so far my feet haven’t slipped or lost traction even under the muddiest and slipperiest conditions.
Thor’s 50/50 boots come up just above the ankle, which I’ve found provides excellent maneuverability of my entire foot to work the foot brake and position myself quickly while preparing to tackle hills or transferring from sitting and standing positions.
It’s difficult to find an ATV riding boot that feels great every time you wear it. My 50/50 boots are so cozy, I can wear them all day riding or walking around at the track without feeling any discomfort. To date, these are the best ATV boots I’ve slipped my feet into.
