Ok, let’s go through a very quick check…what kind of footwear do you wear when you ride your ATV? Certainly not slippers or flip-flops, we’re hoping because these are certainly not the kind of ATV footwear that is what we would even remotely call ‘suitable’ for ATV riding.
And we’re not even getting into the style factor here yet. With so many new ATV footwear designers popping up everywhere on the Internet and everywhere in the world, you can find literally ALL kinds of styles, makes and colors you want if you look hard enough. and the amazing thing is that ATV footwear is not even as expensive as we thought it would be. For instance, we spotted a really neat pair of ATV riding boot for only $19.95!
Anyway, let’s go over the basics….there are two types of riding boots available mostly through online stores. The Motocross riding boots and the ATV riding boots. If this is the first time you’re buying riding boots, make sure you know the difference. It DOES matter which type of riding boots you’re buying although a beginner probably won’t mind the difference.
The size of the ATV riding boots is also another concern especially if you’re buying the boots online. Of course….you’re buying it online, therefore, there’s no trying before buying…even though you can return it or exchange it for a different size…but it’ll take a long time. But remember this and you can’t go wrong…if you’re wearing a size 8 for normal shoes, you ought to buy a size 9 and slightly higher for your ATV riding boots. Why? Well, most of the ATV riding boots are made in European countries and sized as such, therefore, there is bound to be sound difference in sizing.
Here’s another tip if you’re keen on buying ATV riding boots online via a web store…make sure you know the brand name of the riding boots. No, we’re not brand conscious people although we DO have to admit that the more well-known the brand, the better the quality. But the truth is that, if you know the brand name of the ATV riding boots, go the website and check out the model, the sizing and the explicit details. From there, you can easily gauge whether the riding boots are for you…or not.
