WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that stand
out with MX Boot Resole & Repair.
(1) Application. MX Boot Resole & Repair specializes
in Alpinestars, Gaerne, Sidi, Fox, Thor and O’Neal boots.
They can repair other brands as well, but there is a break-even point for the consumer in repairing the soles on low-cost boots. Often it’s more cost-effective to just buy new
boots below the $250 mark than to spend $100 fixing the
soles. MX Boot Resole only uses replacement Alpinestars,
Gaerne and Sidi soles (regardless of the brand of boot
they are repairing), because they are the most durable.
Not every boot-repair company is equipped to replace the
molded-on soles found on Alpinestars Tech 10s, Tech 7s
and Tech 3s, but MX Boot Resole & Repair is. However, for
molded-on sole brands that do not offer replacement soles,
such as the Fox Instinct, they will replace the molded sole
with a welted Vibram sole. MXA sent MX Boot Resole &
Repair two sets of Gaerne SG12s to get repaired. On one
pair the soles were peeling off, and the other pair’s mid-sole was torn up by sharp aftermarket footpegs.
( 2) Boot chassis. Before sending your boots in, we recommend inspecting the chassis of the boots for damage.
MX Boot Resole & Repair can repair any blown-out seams,
hardware and most rips for a small additional charge.
Although there is no surefire way to prevent the overall
breakdown of a boot’s upper chassis, small repairs can
make a big difference in a boot’s lifespan. High-end boots,
such as Gaerne SG12s, Sidi Crossfires and Alpinestars
Tech 10s, have durable, long-lasting, overall construction
that makes them good candidates for one or more resoles.
If you are a rider who hates breaking in boots and your
old pair has some wear and tear on the soles, sending your
boots out to get repaired is a great solution.
( 3) Durability. MXA was impressed that our used
Gaernes came back cleaner than when we shipped them
out. The new soles increased the rigidity of the boot,
especially noticeable on big jumps. This gave our riders
more confidence, as they felt more planted and stable on
the pegs. The craftsmanship was factory quality. We have
raced in the boots many times since getting the boots
back, and our test riders have had no issues. We like that
MX Boot Resole & Repair takes boots with soles that have
a short shelf life and replaces them with high-quality, lon-ger-lasting soles.
( 4) Extras. If you are unsure if your boots can be
repaired or want to know the repair cost up front, you can
send a photo of the damaged areas of your boot to info@
mxbootrepair.com. All MX Boot Resole & Repair work is
guaranteed and has a quick turnaround time of three to
four business days.
WHAT’S THE SQUAWK? No complaints.
Resoling expensive motocross boots
is the perfect solution for riders on a budget
or riders who like the way their trusty old
boots feel. Resoling can double the lifespan
of your favorite boots.
