A pair of motorcycle shoes are an extremely important part of your outfit when you ride a motorcycle, whether it is motorcycle boots or motorcycle shoes. When you fall, your feet and hands will touch the ground first out of reflex. That is why special motorcycle shoes have been designed for this. Their main function is to protect your toes, ankles and heel.
If you want to buy motorcycle shoes, you will have to make a choice between two types of material, namely textile and leather. You also have synthetic leather, such as Lorica, a synthetic leather of the highest quality. Lorica is flexible, soft, wear-resistant, water-repellent and has high breathability. Leather is often better known. It is also durable, breathable, flexible and therefore adapts to the shape of your foot.
The range of leather motorcycle shoes is larger than textile motorcycle shoes. This has to do with the fact that leather is very durable and therefore safer.
When you buy motorcycle shoes you will really only have to deal with 1 style, namely urban or casual. The casual style is often low and you can move freely in it. It is, therefore, more comfortable with these motorcycle shoes to walk through the city, for example. So you could also wear these shoes in your spare time.
As mentioned above, motorcycle shoes are actually available in 1 height, namely low. A few models come in slightly higher versions, but this is quite exceptional.
As mentioned above, protection is the most important thing about a motorcycle shoe. The higher the shoes, the better they protect. Another protection factor is reflection. Reflective parts in the heel, among other things, make you visible in the dark. This allows others to see you approaching. Ventilation is also essential. This makes wearing motorcycle shoes a lot more comfortable during hot days. The ventilation parts are made of perforated fabric and are often located around the ankle. Some sporty shoes have a slide that you can close and open. Another important comfort element is the fit. With some shoes, it is possible to adjust the fit. This can be done, for example, by means of Velcro. Some motorcycle shoes also have stretch parts. This increases wearing comfort and freedom of movement. It also ensures that you can put the motorcycle shoes on and off more easily, but also that they adapt to your sitting position on the motorcycle.
Another important aspect is the waterproofness of motorcycle shoes. If you are looking for motorcycle shoes, it is also recommended to take a look at Gore-Tex motorcycle shoes. These are 100% guaranteed waterproof motorcycle shoes, ideal if you commute to work.
