FLY FR5 BOOT Rapid Review

FLY FR5 BOOT Rapid Review
The FLY FR5 Boot offering a minimilistic but sharp look in a boot that is very well priced.

Shere is nothing quite like getting a new set of boots, and we were lucky enough to recently be sent a set of FLY FR5 Boots to try out.

The FLY FR5 boot by price is aimed at mid-range of the boot market, coming in at $369.95, making it very competitively priced motocross boot.

The boot itself looks pretty minimalistic, with a nice clean and tidy look about it, utilising Moulded panels for a sharp modern look in both the all Black or Black and White colourways.

Putting the FR5 boots on for the first time, your foot and lower leg slides in with ease, with the inner lining providing an excellent comfortable feel. There is no inner booty in the fly FR5 boots, allowing for plenty of range of ankle and foot movement; however, the boot still offers excellent ankle support, running bio-mechanical pivots on both the inside and the outside of the boot to help prevent your ankle from moving too far if things do go wrong.

FLY FR5 BOOT Rapid Review
From our very first ride, the Fly FR5 Boot has felt comfortable, giving good feel for both the rear brake pedal and the shift lever.

The low designed, plastic moulded front shift panel, from the get-go provides good feel on the sift level, with myself finding a good feeling for both upshifting and downshifting along with a feel for the rear brake with-in the first ride in these boots, which is always a good thing.

The sole has so far offered great grip on the pegs, and as expected is showing practically no wear after just a few rides. We will see how that holds up as we continue to run them

The buckle system is pretty easy to use, using a quick aluminium lock that is easily positioned into the adjustable straps and pulls closed with no fuss, even for myself with oversized calves!

Overall after running these boots only four times, so far they have proven to stand up to the task perfectly are super comfortable, easy to put on and offer a good feel on both shift and brake levers.

We will continue to run the FLY FR5 boots over the coming months and see how they hold up over time, but for their price point, they are a top-quality boot, offering comfort along with some excellent protection.

The Metal on Metal buckly is easy to use, along with a wide opening up top and a silky smooth liner, making the FR5 one easy boot to get on and off.
