Casual Shoes For Motorcycle Riding

Protective gear while riding is imperative for a riders safety. From leather jackets, mesh jackets, V2 protection jackets, gloves, helmets and of course shoes/boots. Although some will argue the facts, foot protection matters! All too often while working in the emergency room trauma victims were brought in from a motorcycle accident with little to no foot protection. Flip-Flops are not proper footwear to be on a motorcycle with. The CDC did a study and found that 30% of all non fatal motorcycle injuries were to the legs and feet.

Proper and comfortable shoes should provide comfort, toe protection, heal and ankle support and an anti -slip rubber sole for good gripping. They should keep your feet warm and dry. Thanks to the manufacturers which are bridging the gap brining new and innovative riding apparel technology to the forefront of motorcycle safety.

Choosing the right shoe

You need to know there is a difference between motorcycle riding shoes and riding boots. If you are new to riding then finding the comfort, style and safety is important. If you are already an avid rider then you probably have a high standard for performance, safety and function while shifting gears.

Number Five TCX Street Ace WP Womens Shoe comes in just under $200.00.

Important features include:

  • Waterproof lining

  • High wear-resistant rubber sole

  • CFS Comfort Fit System

  • Comes in sizes 4 to 9.5

  • Only come in gray

Reviews from Cyclegear.com stated; “Very comfortable for riding in and walking in. Love the baked in heel, allows me to flat foot when stopped. Been caught in the rain twice with the, kept me feet nice and dry. Obviously they don’t have much air flow since they are waterproof, but I have no complaints there. Have worn these shoes allay at work with no problems. Would recommend these shoes”.

Number Four Harley Davidson’s Mackey Performance Shoes For The Ladies sells for $150.00.

Important features Include:

  • Waterproof

  • Made by Wolverine for the performance factors one expects from Harley Davidson

  • 3MTM Reflective Material and reflective laces to improve your chances of being seen in low visibility conditions

  • Rubber Outsole

  • Abrasion-Resistant, Slip-Resistant and Oil- Resistant

  • Comes in Black and Gray

  • Sizes 5 – 11

The downside would be from the reviews off of the Harley Davidson’s reviews website. One reviewer stated; “Not good for summer riding. My feet got really hot in 94 degree weather versus using my other leather harley boots which are too heavy but they keep my feet neutral. Not too hot and not too cold”.

Number Three Speed and Strength Black Nine Moto Shoe by the Speed and Strength company. Sells for just under $100.00 and it’s a bargain for sure.

Important Features Include:

  • Features ankle support

  • Comes in wide

  • Rubber sole for griping pavement

  • Leather Upper with an undercover lacing system

  • Comes in Black, Grey and Charcoal

  • Sizes 6 -11.5

★★★★★★★★★★5 out of 5 stars.

GREAT WATERPROOF BOOTS “I purchased these boots from the Harley on-line store through my dealership and had them delivered to my house. I usually buy wide or extra wide boots because of a problem I have with my little toe rubbing. I usually wear a 9 to a 9 ½ but because these only come in a medium length I went with a 10 to see how they fit. As it turned out I had about 1⁄2 inch room at the end but I wore them around the house a couple of days and they are quite comfortable. There is a very small composite safety toe but doesn’t cover the toes. Good if you accidentally kick something hard by accident. I wear them all day and my feet don’t hurt. And they are waterproof. Another plus. I really like these boots and would recommend them”.

Number Two Daily Shoes Womens Lace Up Buckle Combat Boots Ankle High sells anywhere from $15.00 to $80.00. These boots have an unusual stylish feature. With the Susan 01 Wallet Pocket a girl can carry her wallet necessities instead of an over the shoulder carry purse or zipping up in a jacket. (I may have to get me a pair of these just to try them out)

Important Features Include:

  • Patent- Leather

  • Rubber sole

  • Slip resistant durable synthetic soles

  • Come in a variety of colors from black to hot pink

  • Sizes 5 – 12

Downside according to the reviews on Amazon, a few reviewers stated that the soles fell apart after wearing the boots for around three to four months

3.0 out of 5 stars, “After only 2 months of own these boots the right sole has split apart. I got them April 4th and they started falling apart 2 weeks ago June 7th. I am disappointed in the craftsmanship of the boots. They SHOULD last longer for the price“.

Before I get to number one I want to take this opportunity to say, “Thank You” to Mr. Tim Kraai owner of Motor Gear Expert.com for asking me to be a guest blogger on his website. Stop by and check out the website. There is a lot of helpful information and great reading.

Number One Harley Davidson the Eagleson sells for $140.00.

Important Features Include:

  • A sneaker that is “street” ready and can handle the road

  • Waterproof full grain leather and breathable hydro-guard waterproof lining

  • Rubber outsole

  • Only come in black

  • Sizes 7 – 13 in a medium or wide width

This particular shoe is a really new product for Harley Davidson. As for a downside only the price seemed to be an issue according to the reviews on the Harley Davidson website most gave it either four or five stars.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Awesome shoes. I usually never spend more than $50 on shoes but these are well worth the price, great product“.

These are just a few casual shoes one could wear while riding. If you are a new rider, let me encourage you to always wear safety gear. Be aware of your surroundings at all times and “look twice, save a life”!
