What Makes Motorcycle Riding Boots Different From Regular Boots.

Sportbike Riding BootsWhen you are looking for boots that can protect you from the road versus just look good you need to look for several things. There are big differences between true motorcycle boots versus some that are just made to look like a biker boot.

The main differences are that look alike motorcycle riding boots while looking like the real deal do not have the safety features a real boot made for riding has. The reinforced ankle and steel toe as well as a shift pad are usually missing. Also the materials used are not made to survive a crash and protect the rider’s foot and ankle but rather to look like a motorcycle riding boot for the sake of fashion.

On real riding boots you will find re enforced shanks for ankle protection as well as thicker leather along with a steel toe or at minimum a reinforced toe guard made from a hard plastic. Also the sole of the boot will be different. Usually slip resistant to give you the best grip. When our riding on your bike its important you do not slip of the pegs while riding as well as when you are at a light that you have adequate traction to keep the bike upright and not slip on some debris you might encounter on the road. Buy Traditional Biker Boots

When it comes to motorcycle riding boots that are the real deal you will also come across several variations depending on what the purpose of the boot is. One is a sport bike boot which tends to be more safety conscious because you are usually dealing with higher speeds plus possible track days. The other is more of your traditional biker boot that you will see most guys on cruisers wear. Traditional biker boots will have the looks of an Engineer boot and will generally be made from a thick leather with a steel toe, where motorcycle riding boots that are more geared towards sport bikes will have more features like: PU injection molded shin plate protectors, an internal calf protector, heel sliders, shock absorbing integrated internal ankle protectors, and a shift pad. These are typical features you can find on a boot made for track and street riding.

Also in recent years you will find motorcycle shoes have become popular. These types of shoes have the look of a sneaker with all the safety features of a motorcycle boot. For example the Alpinestars SMX 1 riding shoe is made from 1.4mm leather, with a toe shifter, an injection molded heel, and an exclusive Alpinestars sole compound to prevent slip.

The one main thing to keep in mind no matter which type of motorcycle riding boots you decide to go with is that you keep quality versus price in mind when making the purchase. Just think of the money you might save may not be worth it if you actually are unlucky and have a spill. Plus quality motorcycle gear will last for years and years where the cheap stuff tends to disintegrate under heavy use.
