Been wearing an early sample of these boots for the past 5 years, with a tech 8 inner bootie inside. They did me extremely well and saved me from injury more than once. Motocross is a hard sport though and it was time for some new ones. It was a tough choice. There used to be a time when you didn’t even need to think about it, if you had the money, you bought tech 8’s. They were what all the pro’s wore and were by far the best boot on the market. Nowadays there is a lot of choice out there. Some boots look great but don’t offer any protection, some look great but are too bulky, and some look great but trash your bike when you wear them. Others look rubbish but are well made and cheap. Etc. etc. The tech 10’s are expensive but apart from that tick pretty much all the boxes. The support was always great in these boots but the inner brace wasn’t super comfy in the pre-production ones I tried. After a quick try on these seem to be much better though, so I look forward to giving them a ride soon.
