Fly Racing Maverik ATV/DS Boots (Size 8 Only)
Cheaply made boot, and falls apart
I've been riding with this boot for a couple months...mostly on the street. this boot already has the threads coming loose. You can't latch the buckles to tight because they snap loose if you move your ankle or anything. Disappointing. If you want cheap because you're not sure about adventure/dirt riding--this boot will be great for the price. But don't expect it lasting long or the quality being high--because it's not. Very poorly made.
ALSO, this boot is in NOWAY water proof. If you ride all year round, you will get WET feet when riding for about 15 minutes in the rain. That means if you put your foot down in any puddles above the sole, you'll also get wet and feel it too. Staying dry is THEE most important (in my opinion) in adventure riding and being able to go anywhere. Unfortunate for this boot.

I bought these in an attempt to save money with my first set of riding boots....big mistake. I made it 10min in to my first ride and had to return to the house to take them off. The fit was horrible as was the general comfort of the boot. I ended up with a set of sidi adventure boots which have worked flawlessly.

Excellent Looking, Comfortable
These boots are nice looking, only been walking around in em to break em in. I will be using them the weekend after labor day to see how they really shine. Wish the buckles were metal or nylon, they seem like plastic. but over all nice boots for the money.

Decent boot for the money
Haven't ridden with them a lot as yet, but they seem to be ok, I didn't want to drop $500 for a pair of boots. They are stiff out of the box, but most boots are. I'd buy again.

great boot great price.
Ordered this boot for using on my can am outlander 500 XT. The boot does not flex much at first. After ŕiding 8 hours and getting on and off the quad, they have started to loosen up. I am usually a 9 1/2 in a wide boot, or a 10 in a regular. I ordered this boot in a ten and it fit great, if anything I will be able to put a thick sock on in it. Was standing in the stream to push my son's quad out, and there was very little dampness In it, so I would say, mostly waterproof. On a final note, Revzilla has been awsome!!!!! If I order on a tuesday, I have my items at my door Thursday........That is just awesome! !!!!

Great 3/4 boot choice! Very happy.
I wanted a boot to go under riding pants/jeans. I also wanted more protection than a low cut boot. This boot fits the bill perfectly so far.
Boot looks great. Not ridden yet, but looks well constructed. The straps seemed easier to work than some other boots. I like that. Understandably, as a 3/4 boot, it loses some shin protection. So, I might look into shin pads that could insert easily into the boot top, as my riding pants fall a bit short in the knee/shin protection on them meeting with the boot protection. So, feeling a bit naked in that gap. But, I guess that's the trade-off on a 3/4 boot. Fuller, separate knee/shin protection would probably wear easier with a low cut boot. BUT, the ankle protection and sturdiness on this 3/4 feels great relative to a low cut. Much less concerned about twisting ankles with these. So, again, trade offs. But, very happy.
As for size/fit, the boot initially feels a bit small. I have another manufacturer's boot in the same size (11) and it definitely feels a bit bigger relative to this boot. So, similar to another review I read, I felt like I could take a 1/2 size bigger, especially on one foot that is a bit bigger than the other. BUT...and here's the big BUT...since there seems to be more heel room than toe room in my opinion in this boot, in a toe-down, heel-up riding position, the boot actually gets pretty comfortable. While not loose, it feels like your foot shifts back to fill the heel area and then you get the toe comfort, especially since a 3/4 boot gives you a little more flexibility anyway. So, maybe it is designed that way, as I haven't had that feeling with other boots. And, in the end, especially with a little breaking-in, I think the size will be perfect and true. At least for me, I think ordering up a size would have been a mistake. I think these will break in just fine.
In sum, I am very happy. They look great. They fit great under pants. I think the snugness I mentioned will work out fine or not matter when riding. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my choice.

Saved my foot, but one good wreck and the boot is dead.
First of all I am kind of torn on this review. I purchased these on 4/3/2014 and destroyed them on 8/21/2013. 4 months is not a long time for boots. In general trails riding on dirtbikes they were fine. For the price point even great. Having real tread on the bottom is an advantage in the Texas brush. However the buckles always felt cheap, however since they worked i did not complain.
However on the 21st, I took a tumble doing a nasty hill climb, and my right leg got caught between the rear wheel and subframe. I also managed to hit the gas as I was falling. Total damage was a shredded boot. Buckles ripped of, all the seams coming apart, the little cloth piece near the bottom that keeps water out was ripped off entirely, and a good piece of tread was removed. Scared the **** out of me as well. However I managed to get up, use the velcro to tighten the boot and ride the bike back to base.
So I would give these boots a 4/5 overall. I did not hurt my leg - the most important part - but I still feel the boots should have been able to take more than one hit.
