Motorcycle boots guide

Just like helmet, jacket, pants and glovesare motorcycle boots a meaningful and indispensable part of the

Motorcycle accessories. They contribute significantly to safety while driving as they protect your feet and calves. In addition to pure injury protection as part of driving safety, they also protect against cold and rain.

The concept of motorcycle boots

Boots for bikers are not profane boots or shoes, as they are common in everyday life. Instead, they serve primarily to protect the driver. In addition, they are specially designed for use on longer tours, in sports or even short-term city trips by motorcycle. They stabilize the foot, give it a secure hold and, moreover, are still comfortable in many cases. There are different variants, which are intended for special applications and all-rounders, which are conditionally suitable for all areas of use, but have no special functionality.

The general characteristics of biker boots

Regardless of properties for a specific use, reject all motorcycle boots basic characteristics. Similar to helmets, the outer surface is reinforced and they are softly padded inside. The outer material is usually leather, but also synthetic fabrics (including Lorica) are used. For high quality models, the upper is waterproof, breathable and highly abrasion resistant. Most boots are equipped with an inner shoe, which should be close to the foot to protect against ankle injuries. In comfortable variants outer and inner shoe are separable. On the shaft almost all models (except ankle boots) are equipped with protectors and the interior is usually padded with latex foam. In addition, the shin is additionally protected with large plastic plates. caps on the heel and toes give extra protection and stability and most of the top of the left boot is equipped with a special reinforcement. It prevents excessive wear that could otherwise result from operating the shift lever. The soling of the motorcycle boots mostly consists of three layers. Inner and insole are usually made of leather, the latter occasionally reinforced with metal. The outsole is usually made of non-slip rubber and is provided with a profile.

The special types of motorcycle boots

Appropriately designed boots are offered for different riding styles. However, the demarcation is fluid. This is especially true for Allrounder.

– Allrounder (touring boots)
These types are usually made of leather and are often equipped with reflectors. They usually contain only a necessary minimum of protectors and accordingly offer the driver only the absolutely necessary basic protection. Mainly they are worn on longer trips. For opening and closing, most models are equipped with zip or velcro fasteners. High-quality models of this category, however, offer a little more protection and are also partially equipped with sanding pads as in sports boots.

– sports boots
They are made of either leather or synthetic fabric and often have vents that increase breathability. They are designed for sporty driving. Therefore, they are provided to protect the driver with plastic inserts and a high number of protectors. The absolute standard features of this type include toe grinders and heel caps, which are made of plastic or metal. This equipment prevents the actual boots from dragging over the ground during extreme travel. Sports boots are opened and closed with buckles or ratchets and often contain internal zippers.

– Ankle boots (short boots)
The short shaft of the booties only reaches just above the ankles. Calves and shins therefore do not protect them. They are usually made of leather or a special textile mix and usually contain a lacing for opening and closing. The target group of these boots are drivers who are only occasionally on the road with the motorcycle in the city on short trips. Motorcycle boots made of imitation leather are also suitable for such occasional rides, but they should definitely be breathable as well as resistant to water and abrasion.

– Enduro and cross boots
The features are similar to the sports boots, but they are designed for higher demands. Therefore, the shaft is extra high and in the toe area additional metal caps are available. These types are designed for extremely sporty driving or for high speeds.

– Cross-over motorcycle boots
These boots are a combination of off-road and touring boots. They offer high protection, easy handling and are suitable for longer trips, as well as occasional off-road driving.
