I love motorcycle boots – short ones, long ones, casual ones, race ones – there are so many on the market in a variety of styles that there is something out there for everyone.

There’s supports and protection galore throughout the boot so you’re safe in the knowledge that should you have a spill then you’ll be a lot better off than wearing non-CE certified footwear.

They open nice and wide so you can get them on and off easily and the breathable textile interior lining keeps your feet fresh – even on those warm days. A vented version is available too.
