Boots Are Also Made For Riding

According to Jessica Simpson’s song, ‘boots are made for walking’. However, boots are also good for riding escapades.

There are different kinds of boots that will suit every rider’s personality and performance. They are tour boots, race boots and shorty boots. Tour boots are long and slender boots that use a number of protection shells. Race boots, on the other hand, are a bit complicated and aesthetic. It uses armor shells on the impact area so as to secure the feet in times of collision. They also come in flashy colors and designs. Finally, we have shorty boots. These boots are lighter versions of the normal boots that we usually see.

When looking for a perfect fitting pair of boots, you must consider ventilation. Boots usually heats up feet faster that other shoe apparel. Therefore, it must have good ventilation system to make your feet comfortable yet precluding rain from coming in. Leather boots lets your feet breathe so you must have a pair or two to give it an easy breathing during long rides. Aside from leather there are newly discovered materials that also increase the breathing ability of the feet.

Another factor that you can consider is the boots water resistance. Rain may keep splashing on your boots, however, if you have water resistant boots, you will be dry and confident in your every ride.

Design is crucial when you speak of footwear. Therefore motorcycle boots must have a good foot design to give maximum protection and to cater to the rider’s needs. It must have a good grip on the heel and ankle. That will prevent the heel from lifting. A shifter pad is also a good addition to the footwear. Though some bikes do not need this but some bikes do. Thus, if you can get, why have qualms about it? A heel under the sole let your feet rest effortlessly on the foot peg. It also makes a good grip in mud, sand, water, oil and sand. Chin, ankle, heels and calf can be protected by carbon Kevlar. This material is usually put in the most critical areas of the feet to protect feet from harm.

Opening and closing is the next vital consideration. Be it shoelace or Velcro, they must secure snug fit to keep the rider’s focus and confidence.

Keep stompin’, keep rockin’– nothing to fear when your protected all over by quality motorcycle apparel!
