About our motorcycle boots
The GetGeared team reviews pretty much all the motorcycle boots out there. From Alpinestars race boots to entry-level touring boots. When deciding which motorcycle boots to stock, we consider the same attributes you do. Are they waterproof? Are they vented? What level of protection do they have, pound-for-pound? That's how we develop our extensive range of biker boots. Choose from short ankle motorcycle boots, motorcycle shoes, boots for adventure riders and more.
Not all those considerations are to do with styling. When the first motorcycle shoes and ankle boots launched, they lacked protection. No ankle armour pads, no toe box. And that is our job: to choose motorbike boots where we can tell you honestly that they will do what you need them to do. That is a question of protection, function, price and looks – all that together makes a great set of motorcycle boots for you. And we love it and hope that you enjoy the motorcycle boot selection we made this year!
