I think he might've taken his pants off instead.

So comfortable you could wear them as shoes.

I think they meant to wear boots instead of shoes. Back then, the obvious wasn't always so obvious. Perhaps Fox was aiming for the "I don't have boots yet" crowd. "Give your shoes the boot," in other words (kick them out.)

To the OP, I think this must have been prior to 1983, if we're going by the air-cooled, twin-shock CR on the picture. Maybe 1980? It's hard to tell for sure from a black/white picture, but I think that bike is all red & black too. (No blue.)

Braaapin' aint easy.

Back in the day in America a fast pro was often called a “hot-shoe”. Which got contracted to just “shoe”. I’m pretty sure the term comes from flat-track racing where the riders wear a steel shoe on Over the boot of their left foot to help it slide across the dirt without digging in. I guess if you were fast enough the steel shoe would get pretty hot..

So the ad is really saying that these boots work great for fast guys.

That old box is in awesome condition!

Fuck, I’m sooo old!!
