Oofta.

I don't know what boot you were wearing and I'm not preaching but I'm glad I wear mx boots. I'd rather sacrifice walking with them on now for walking without a "special boot" later.

In no way am I implying you didn't but mx booties have saved me from having a "new" boot several times.

Heal quickly and healthily.

Tuna, I found that with my similar Bledsoe Boot for a broken foot bone it helped to increase sole height of shoe for other healthy foot to match in height. Otherwize clumping around was really unbalanced and led to secondary back and hip pain.
I added a sole cut from an old tennis shoe to a house slipper.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
At least it is Springtime, those open toed foot devices are no good in the snow.

I just bought a pair of Forma Adventures, but these photos's of Craigs's and Fred's injuries are making me a little leery.

My old boots offered a lot of protection, but were like ski boots when it came to walking.

I like the idea of a boot that facilitates walking around, but I also have a strong aversion to breaking bones.

The way my mishap happened I don't think any style of boot would have saved me, like stubbing you toe going 20mph with a SOLID object

Taken in 2012. This was my foot with my new boots back then. I hit a rock toe first which then pulled my foot back under either the swingarm or footpeg. I felt a little stab of pain at the time but continued to ride all day free of pain.

When I got back home and was taking a shower, that's when I noticed the bruise. Bruised but not broken. Can't always get so lucky but I was pretty happy with the protective boots which kept me from wearing a wooden shoe! :p

P.S. I don't think I was going 20 mph but I know it was over 10 mph.
