Ever wonder what is a harness, a slip-on or a military style motorcycle boot? In this article we’ll explore the different style motorcycle boots available to today’s bikers.
A Motorcycle Boots can capture the biker style in just a pair of shoes. From the all time favorite classic harness to today’s modern stylish and fashionable women’s motorcycle shoes, footwear can say it all. When looking for boots specifically for motorcycling, you want to look for style, features and price. Most importantly, you want to shop for quality.
Men’s and women’s motorcycle boots come in various styles; many come in both black and brown leather. Traditionally, black leather boots are the immediate choice. With many features like FreedomFlex™ technology, non-marking and non-skid soles, removeable insoles, padding and more… it’s easy to overlook some very beneficial technologies that can enhance your motorcycle boots. You might not think about non-skid soles as a very important part of motorcycle footwear, but when you rely so heavily on your feet while riding, it’s very important. A simple stop at an intersection or parking space with a little oil on the pavement could spell disaster, and these soles help protect motorcyclist from such. Another great feature easily overlooked is zippers for slip-on and taller lace-up boots. A quality zipper can allow you to easily slide the shoes off and on quickly. Most importantly, be sure to look for quality leather and construction in any motorcycle boot you purchase. more>>
