Question Tread or no tread

Currently riding in Icon Patrol boots. Waterproof, easy on and off comfrotable to walk in.

I'm looking to buy some new boots for my up coming Baja ride next spring. Don't have any off road boots yet, nor much dirt experience.
I have been looking at the Thor Blitz boots they are priced right and they come in 2 styles MX and ATV.

The only difference between the 2 is the sole. The ATV boot has a heavy lug tread and MX not.
Leaning towards the ATV boot, I like the idea of more tread when I have to put my foot down or have a small hike.
But I have offroad pegs on bike and afraid the tread on sole will make it difficult to move foot around on pegs off roading.

Any advise from out there, tread or no tread ?

Do we really need much tread at all when doing the adventure and only minimal off road stuff?
