A pair of men's motorcycle boots is a very important part of your outfit when you ride a motorcycle. If you fall, your feet and hands will hit in reflex the ground first. That's why special motorcycle boots for men have been designed. The main function of men's motorcycle boots is to protect your toes, ankles and heel. If you buy high men's motorcycle boots, they also protect (a part of) your shins.
If you want to buy motorcycle boots for men, you will have to make the choice between two types of material, textile and leather. To make it not too complicated, we share Lorica -an artificial leather of the highest quality- also in the catogory leather. Lorica is flexible, soft, durable, water-repellent and has a high breathability. Leather is often better known. It is also durable, breathable, flexible and therefore adapts to the shape of your feet.
The range of leather men's motorcycle boots is larger than textile motorcycle boots for men. This has to do with that leather is very wear-resistant and therefore safer.
If you buy motorcycle boots for men, you will also have to choose for a style. The different styles we offer are sports, tour, adventure or off-road to casual and the more classic motorcycle boots.
The casual style is often a men's motorcycle shoe rather than a men's motorcycle boot. This has to do with the fact that motorcycle shoes are low and you can walk better in them. It is therefore more comfortable with these motorcycle shoes, for example, to walk through the city. Men's adventure boots are almost always high motorcycle boots, tour motorcycle boots and sports motorcycle boots can be high or low.
As mentioned before, men's motorcycle boots are available in different heights. You have the low men's motorcycle boot and the high men's motorcycle boot. To determine which height best fits your needs, we describe below the advantages and disadvantages per motorcycle boot for men.
The low men's motorcycle boots
A low men's motorcycle boot does fall over your ankle, but only protects a small part of your shins. This boot is therefore stronger than the men's motorcycle shoe, but it also walks a lot stiffer. The hard protectors press against your shins, so you will not like it as soon as you get off your motorbike.
The high men's motorcycle boots
The high men's motorcycle boot protects your foot, ankle and a part of your shins maximally. As with the low men motorcycle boot you will notice that this is not very easy walking as soon as you step off the bike. On the contrary, they offer optimal protection. In addition, they can be very warm in the summer months, which of course is an advantage in the winter.
Protection is the most important thing about men's motorcycle boots. The higher the boots, the better they protect.
Another safety factor is reflection. You are visible in the dark through reflective parts in the heel, among others. Because of this others see you approaching.
Ventilation is also essential. This makes men's motorcycle boots a lot more comfortable during warm days. The ventilation parts are perforated and often located around the ankle. Some boots have a slide that you can be opened or closed. Another important comfort element is the fit. With many boots it is possible to adjust the fit. This can be done by means of, for example, Velcro. Some motorcycle boots also have stretch parts. This increases comfort and freedom of movement. It also ensures that you can pull the motorcycle boots on and off more easily, but also that they adapt to your riding position on the bike.
A last important aspect is the watertightness of motorcycle boots for men. If you are looking for men's motorcycle boots, it is also advisable to take a look at Gore-Tex motorcycle boots for men. These are 100% guaranteed waterproof motorcycle boots, ideal if you are commuting to work.
