When we talk about safety gear for motorcycle riders, there are items that always spring to mind first. Helmet – Jacket – Gloves – Kevlar jeans. However, we need to talk about boots!
Our feet control a lot of the motorcycle. They help us stop the motorcycle, change gears, and even as simple as holding it upright! Yet no one thinks about trading in their Converse shoes, steel caps or joggers in for a pair of motorcycle boots. Motorcycle boots provide necessary safety and protection for your feet.
Just like the rest of your safety gear, there are varying degrees of protection and design. The boot you would wear on your dirt bike is different to the boot you would wear on a sports bike on the track, which is different again to the boot you would wear riding your cruiser to and from work. And not all of them are boots! There are some comfy and great looking, whilst still protective motorcycle shoes available.
Those old runners or the converse that you’re wearing would fold in half without much pressure at all. Even the most basic motorcycle shoe will have a rigid sole.
Most soles are reinforced with at least a strip of plastic. The tougher they are, the longer they will last. If the shoe won’t bend easily, then your foot won’t bend easily.
You put your feet on the ground every time you stop your motorcycle. If your foot slips (like mine did on gravel that one time), it could spell the end of perfect fairings.
Having good grip on the soles of your shoes can assist with holding your motorcycle tall, no matter the road condition.
