Motorcycle boots are needed to protect your feet, which are another part of your body exposed to the elements while riding your bike. Just like how each piece of gear serves a purpose, a good pair of boots will give you stability and make sure you won't slip when you are stopped. Check out our large selection of men's and women's boots.
When choosing the best motorcycle boots for you, consider what is the main purpose of the boots. If you need them to be multi-functional, meaning they need to be worn for everyday use as well, then selecting a boot to reflect this is advised.
If it's strictly to be worn for riding, then of course you can select a style that will offer you the best ride. Most companies will offer you at least three types. The 3 are tour boots, race boots and shorty boots. Tour boots offer you the most flexibility in style and function and that's what we mostly carry here at EBikerLeather.com. Race boots offer even more protection to your calves and ankles, perfect for off-road riding and racing. Shorty boots are those that are "shorter" and lighter than the standard boots which are perfect for everyday wear.
Ankle protection and being comfortable is the most important thing to consider when looking for your perfect motorcycle boot. Pay attention the the quality of the materials. Leather offers the best combination of protection and style, while also being comfortable. Racing boots usually are more durable and a bit limited in their mobility because they serve one function...to help you win!
See what kind of ventilation your potential boot offers. Again, being comfortable is priority. Today's modern motorcycle boots boast quality materials that provide better insulation, moisture wicking and waterproof membranes to keep feet dry which is what we all want!
While planting your feet down on the pavement, one thing all motorcyclists have to make sure about is not slipping. Being aware of things like water and especially oil is the first thing you learn as a motorcycle rider. Synthetic rubber soles are exceptionally oil-resistant, so buying boots with them can make your life easier.
Steel-toed boots are also another thing to consider. Your toes will get their share of action while riding so making sure they are protected is crucial. It's a compromise of weight and functionality, another factor to consider.
As you can see, choosing a good pair of motorcycle boots involves a lot of factors. In the end, it's really about your preference. Take the factors we talked about and buy your pair today!
