In today’s blog installment I’d like to tell you about an item that we’ve had for a while but has had an update worth talking about.The Black MX Enigma Motocross Boots are CE Level 2 certified! With ever increasing standards for safety, the boots have been put to the test and those standards have been met. So let me tell you a bit about the boot it’s self.
The Black Enigma is one of our most popular MX boots. It’s tall, it’s tough and it looks great whether you ride off road in MX gear or on the road and prefer a bigger boot. But depsite the size, all the padding, armour and strappings, the boot is quite light as far as MX boots go. The outside of the boot mostly speaks for it’s self. It’s a sturdy boot with protection all over the place from the whole of the inner side of the foot to the toes, ankles, calf and a steel reinforced plate on the toe.
There’s even double stitching in the key areas to ensure that this boot can stand up to the abuse it can come under in the harsh, offroad riding environments. There are four straps and buckles on each boot, they’re adjustable for length too so you can customise the fit to your leg and adjust for having the bottoms of your pant legs tucked in. The buckles and straps are made of a durable polymer but have metal pins that hinge the fastening and another metal pin in the end of each strap that keeps them securely in place when the boot is all buckled up. And also, the contoured, reinforced soles make the boots more comfortable to wear when on pegs but have been specifically designed for maximum grip whether you’re on or off the bike.
Lets move on to the inside! Looking in at the top, you’ll notice the elastic collar, this is there to form a gentle seal around the calf and it’s there to help limit the amount of dirt and gravel that inevitably gets into the boots when riding offroad. The upper half of the inside has a soft touch lining for a bit of extra comfort and it adds a little more room for tucking in the ends of pants legs.
In the lower half that surrounds the foot it is lined with a breathable Air Mesh that assists in keeping the feet cool. This boot even has a built-in micro fibre suede heat shield, it’s thought of all the things an MXer really needs. But lets move on to why I’ve written about this boot- The boot is CE Level 2 rated to the latest safety standards, moving it on from the old 13634:2010 standard from October 2015 to the 13634:2015 standard of the present day- In short and put simply, they’re one of the most protective boots on the market to date. So if you’re an MXer or even if you just like a sturdier boot, the Black MX Enigma Motocross boots are definitely worth trying on and is an exellent, affordable choice from our motocross boots range at just £89.99. They’re available from sizes UK5 to UK13 and even come in white as well!
I think I’ve gushed enough about this boot. I hope I’ve managed to catch your interest or helped you to know a little bit more about the Enigma if you’re already looking at it.
Have a great day!

Do you use them ? What are they like to race in ?

I don’t own a pair personally, I’m not really much of an MXer. But I have worn them and tried them before and my feet/shins certainly feel invincible. However as a personal preference I’d rather they had a bit more flexibility to them.
Thanks for your comment!
