Elastic bellows on the Dainese Fulcrum C2 Gore-Tex Boots allow the foot to flex naturally. To get my seal of approval, touring boots need to be comfortable, durable, waterproof, easy to get on and off (yet stay securely on my feet while riding), and capable of protecting my feet and ankles, with their... Read more »

Joe Rocket Trixie Waterproof Boots are for women, with a low-cut design and laser-etched detailing. Motorcycle boots are always a compromise between style, comfort and protection. We want them to look good, to feel good on and off the bike, and to prevent or minimize injury in a crash, but few boots... Read more »

BMW Allround Motorcycle Boots Nobody should debate the importance of good footgear, whether it’s for dancing, hiking, playing tennis or riding a motorcycle. Years ago I met a rider on a chopper with a foot clutch who prided himself on riding barefoot; I can’t say I’d recommend that. If something... Read more »

With the performance, technology and comfort of today’s adventure touring motorcycles, one bike really can do it all.

Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, was infamous for having 3,000 pairs of shoes. I don’t have that many, but I’ll admit it: I have a problem. And not just shoes, but boots. Like a lot of guys, I can’t seem to throw anything out. Even if a pair of boots has been buried in the... Read more »
