Touring Motorcycle Boots Guide
Touring motorcycle boots: In for the long haul
A pair of motorcycle touring boots need to stand up to all types of weather, from freezing cold snow and rain, to dry, blistering hot sun. They will be well thought out from the big things like tough, rugged leather shells and waterproof, breathable membranes, to the small, technical things like ratchet closures for easier putting on and taking off, and gear shift pads to increase their life. Long days of non-stop riding can take its toll on your muscles and rough terrain can cause vibrations that affect your bones. Touring motorcycle boots take these issues in to consideration with anti-shock soles and things like memory foam inserts.
As well as providing comfort on long rides, touring boots offer the protection you would expect, with moulded shin protect and high density heel cups to keep your feet positioned correctly inside the boot. The leather shells are abrasion resistant and reinforced heel and toe sections are in place to take impact should you come off the bike.
