Short Motorbike Laces Boots
Among all the different types safety gear that riders choose to use, motorcycle boots are likely the most ignored protective gear. A lot of riders think they can get by with a regular pair of trekking or military style boots. But these don’t typically provide ankle protection, or sufficient toe, heel and shin protection in the event of a crash. Our feet and ankles are very vulnerable, and a good pair of motorcycle boots can prevent serious injury that can keep you off your bike for a long time.
When it comes to motorcycle boots, there are different types that you could choose from, depending on your type and purpose of riding, and weather conditions. There are touring / commuting boots, racing boots and military style boots. In terms of materials, leather boots offer the best abrasion resistance and durability, followed by boots made of reinforced textile.
But there are some essential features for motorbike boots to even be considered:
– They need to be really, really sturdy – with oil resistant, non-slip, non-twist and strong soles, and provide good ankle protection.
– You should be able to tightly fasten the boots above the ankle, so that they don’t fly off your feet if you happen to crash.
– They must have reinforced protection for the heels, toes, ankle and shin areas, so your feet get adequate protection
Unlike other gear, motorbike boots stay on after the ride. Most riders prefer to wear them all day, even off their bikes.
