The Shifter is a sneaker-style shoe specially designed for motorcyclists. This sporty sneaker has all the important functions that a modern motorcycle shoe requires. The combination of real cowhide and added XTM-Fiber ® membrane (fiber technology made from DuPont ™ Kevlar® Coolmax® and Lycra®) gives this shoe its high functionality and the respective protection under extreme conditions. So the John Doe Shifter offers extra protection against wear on normal leather motorcycle boots. Another feature is the John Doe Thirstoint protection, which provides extra reinforcement to the ankle, heel and front. Leather "shift protection" protects the shoe adequately and gives extra grip when moving the motor.
All John Doe's motorcycle shoes also have a "water-stop function" (such as trekking and hiking shoes). That is, the tongue is designed to prevent water from seeping into the shoe. The 'easy access' to the boat via the zipper allows the rider to quickly and easily pull the shoe on and off. An oil-resistant, vibration-absorbing non-slip sole is also standard on our John Doe motorcycle boots. Details such as a John Doe logo embossed in leather on the ankle protection or the JDM metal emblem on the tab complete the classic design of the "Shifter" sneaker.
