Whoa! That brings back some memories... The way current boots are mostly plastic, it's not as big a jump as it was in 1975... Given that, they look pretty burly; I remember a friend had them in the late 70s and said it was difficult to "feel" when shifting.

They are $499!
Don't look like they will fit around knee braces.
They almost look cartoonish.

Looks like a George Lucas design right out of Star Wars.

I had a pair of those red scotts boots back in 84? They were given to me buy the guy I bought my KDX 240 from, tried them once, once and dropped them back off at his house. Felt like a skiboot, only worse. These look goofy but probably arent bad, you know they wont get weird if put away wet,,

Exactly what I was thinking.

If its as stiff as it looks, its a knee injury waiting to happen. I can see a molded toe box for crush protection, but the rest of the boot must flex a bit.

Default Plastic fantastic?

I rode with Vendramini plastic boots in the 80's (think they were Italian).

I loved them.

Brake & gear lever feel was the down side to them but I took some big hits to the lower leg from logs, sticks etc and also in some crashes and never had an injury.

It's 25 years later and significant improvements have been made in all types of manufacturing, I see no reason these can't be a good thing.

I am looking forward to seeing some real reviews from people who have used them and not opinions based on a photo.

I wouldn't mind trying them out. I had a pair of Heckel plastic boots back in
'75,in fact I still have the Heckels. I liked them then and had no problem with them. I cannot bring myself to spend more than $250 on a pair of boots, any pair of boots. If I remember right, I believe I paid $85 for the Heckels.
