What should I look out for with motorcycle boots?
The GetGeared buying team reviews pretty much all the motorcycle boots
ranges that are out there. From Alpinestars race boots
to entry-level touring boots
. When we decide which motorcycle boot
to purchase stock of. Two different decisions kick in and they are most likely pretty similar to what you look at when you consider which biker boots
you want to purchase next. There are the obvious functional and protective attributes and they tend to be determined by season and what you do on your motor bike
. Are they waterproof
? Or for summer: are they vented
? Or if they are intended for track racing or street use
, what level of protection
have they got pound-for-pound? Up to about 15 years ago, that was pretty much all you had to consider alongside price. Now, there is a much wider range of motorcycle boot types
, including short ankle boots
and motorcycle shoes
, motorcycle boots for adventure riders
and so on and so forth. Not all of those considerations are to do with styling: When the first motorcycle shoes and ankle boots were launched, they lacked protection.
No ankle armour pads, no toe box. And that is our job: To choose motor bike boots where we can tell you honestly that they will do what you need them to do
- and that is a question of protection, function, price and looks - all that together makes a great motorcycle boot for you
. And we love it and hope that you enjoy the motorcycle boot selection
we made this year!
