What to look for in motorcycle boots

2017-12-15

Here at The Motorcycle Accessory Shop, we love our customers. We always want them to be happy, healthy and safe. That’s why we say rider safety is our number one priority. Now, there are a lot of ways you can stay safe while you’re riding your motorcycle, but this blog post will discuss motorcycle boots. In this blog post, we will outline the importance of motorcycle boots and what to look for when you buy a pair.

Material

Motorcycle boots are different from regular shoes mostly because of the material they’re made of. Motorcycle boots are usually made of very thick material to protect the riders. The most common types of materials used to make motorcycle boots are leather and thick textile. Both are especially adapted by boot companies for riding purposes.

Closures

It is really up to your preference for this one. There are a few options though. Most bikers use a combination of zips and Velcro on their boots as is it easier and faster to use. However, some bikers prefer laces, which has a few risks. Laces might get undone any time and that can prove to have quite disastrous results if the laces get tangled.

Type of riding

The type of motorcycle boots you are going to use is going to depend largely on what type of riding you are going to do. If you are going to do a lot of sports riding, you’re going to need extra protection. On the other hand if you’re going to be mostly off-road, motorcycle boots that have been designed for asphalt or pitch aren’t going to suit you.
