$150 and Un­der Boots

Baggers - - THE COLLECTIVE -


For those look­ing for all the mod­ern-day bells and whis­tles in a boot that has that nos­tal­gic vin­tage look, Tour Master has the solution. The wa­ter-re­sis­tant HiPora breath­able leather mem­brane on the Vin­tage 2.0 boots help give it that time­less ap­pear­ance while uti­liz­ing state-of-the art ma­te­ri­als. Re­mov­able foot beds in­crease com­fort on and off the bike, and high-ten­sile strength thread stitched through­out the boot pro­vides ul­ti­mate dura­bil­ity. Tour Master builds its footwear to look good and per­form even bet­ter.


Sim­ple and ef­fec­tive—this is the per­fect de­scrip­tion for Black Brand’s Stomper boots. Th­ese are de­signed to be rough and rugged for heavy mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ing yet com­fort­able enough to walk in all day with the D30 in­sole. Th­ese bad boys are built to last but are also cre­ated for all-day com­fort and style in mind.

Rid­ing shoes are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar, and Fly Rac­ing’s M16 is proof why. The ex­te­rior is con­structed from top-grain leather with a wa­ter­proof mem­brane lin­ing that en­sures op­ti­mum dry­ness in the wettest con­di­tions. Th­ese may ap­pear to be just reg­u­lar street shoes to the un­trained eye, but they are far from it. A com­pos­ite shank iso­lates the foot from en­gine vi­bra­tions and dual-den­sity an­kle pro­tec­tors on lat­eral and me­dial sides keep the foot safe from any side im­pacts. Toe and heel boxes have also been re­in­forced for added sup­port and im­pact re­sis­tance.


The Bikes Are In My Blood leather mo­tor­cy­cle boots from Speed and Strength fea­ture a pre­mium leather up­per and of­fer a wide com­fort fit with side zip en­try. The boots are built with molded toe and an­kle re­in­force­ments for added pro­tec­tion and are equipped with an anti-slip rub­ber out­sole for max­i­mum grip. Show­cased fea­tures also in­clude a pro­pri­etary Un­der Cover lac­ing sys­tem, wide com­fort fit, and dou­ble side-zip en­try for easy on/off.

Some peo­ple may un­der­es­ti­mate the power of re­li­able wa­ter­proof boots, es­pe­cially if they have never been stuck in pour­ing-down rainy rid­ing con­di­tions. The crew at TC-X un­der­stands that wet boots suck, so they have per­fected wa­ter­proof footwear to com­bat that ever be­ing a prob­lem while on the road. The full-grain leather con­struc­tion is backed with a wa­ter­proof mem­brane to keep wa­ter out, and malle­o­lus toe and heel re­in­force­ments help pro­tect from road haz­ards no mat­ter the con­di­tions. Th­ese of­fer an al­ter­na­tive styling solution to “reg­u­lar” look­ing rid­ing boots yet fea­ture all the same func­tions that rid­ers come to de­pend on from their pro­tec­tive rid­ing shoe of choice. It’s safe to say that en­gi­neer-styled cruiser boots fea­ture time­less, sleek styling, and Ox­ford’s Apache boots are no ex­cep­tion. The smooth leather up­per makes th­ese kicks a great choice for ca­sual wear un­der jeans, while the re­in­forced counter/shank, wa­ter­proof mem­brane and heavy-duty tread de­sign makes them durable and com­fort­able enough for a long day in the sad­dle.
