hmmm, I started trials riding with hinged MX boots, don't work
MC boots have scaled soles, to keep your knees and ankles from getting twisted, when you slide a foot on the ground
and MC bots have stiff soles
trials boots have knobby soles like hyter aggressive hiking boots, to keep your feet ON the pegs, even on the short end of the pegs without slipping
trials boots have flexible soles
not sure about the H-Points, but even in the day there were quite a few enduro boots on the market, lighter than MX boots with hiking boot soles
they would work for trials, or nowadays BMW Santiago or the like

on road, for dual sporting and for trials I have A-star No Stop, they fit my feet better than the Gaernes, I would love to have the waterproof membrane the Gaernes have, but ... oh well
off road I stick with MX boots

Have the No Stops for the trials bike but no way in the world would I wear them for regular off roading. Nowhere near enough ankle support and foot protection. For off road I will take my Tech tens every time.

Dunlop rubber trials boots...

...does anyone know if they're still available? Or is there a rubber Dunlop boot that's very similar?

Of what kind of construction were they? Steel shanks? Steel toes? Insulation?

I'm a big fan of the "old days" of trials and have several of Don Morey's books about British and Spanish trials bikes. The Dunlop rubber trials boots were apparently the "hot set-up" in the days when real trials men wore waxed cotton "thornproofs" and big thumpers ruled the sections.

I thought a pair might be functional and something to try here in the swamps of Indiana.

Sorry for bringing back a four year old thread but I thought it would be better than starting a new one.
