Riding a motorcycle comes with some risks associated with it. Some are major, while the others minor. Vulnerability of the foot is one of the major risks. Wearing a proper pair of boots, whether you’re a male or female rider, protects your foot from being vulnerable while ensuring comfort and better handling of a bike. Your feet stay safe from mufflers or exhaust pipes, road debris, extreme cold, and other weather conditions. They are also a source of fashion and style if supported by suitable clothing.
Types of Motorcycle Boots
The type or fit of footwear you choose to go biking in is vital in completing your outfit and enhancing your safety and flexibility on the road. There are various options for bikers as under from where you can choose:
- Motocross Boots – Are particularly perfect for rough terrains and for that rider looking for the thrill that a fast motorcycle offers.
- Adventure Boots – Are more hybrid and work perfectly for both on and off-road.
- Touring Boots – Prepared to protect the feet, ankles and legs from the hazards of the road. These boots are generally ergonomic to the feet and are made for any weather.
- Track Boots – Specially designed for contact with reasonably flat terrain such as pavements.
Most bikers love to have a masculine feel regarding their boots, and therefore, choose leather boots. Leather is more resilient to harsh weather. Generally, boots can be categorized into performance boots, lifestyle boots, work boots and black labels. With these choices, the possibilities of style are endless, depending on the environment.
Outfit While Riding a Bike
Here are some tips for anyone curious about how to maintain your outfit while riding a motorcycle:
- On a cold day, go for a pair of skinny jeans, well-suit gloves, a light sweater and top it all off with a waist-length leather jacket. Goggles fit for cold conditions are excellent here.
- On a warm day, a cute midi or skater dress and a light leather jacket or denim jacket. A stylish riding glass can make you more attractive while preventing UVs.
- You can switch it up with a more athleisure look by going for legging, a simple t-shirt or tank top and a cute leather jacket.
- If you are not wearing skinny jeans, consider folding them to ankle length and go for ankle boots.
- You can also tuck your pants properly, especially if you decide to go with ankle boots.
- But in every case, a stylish helmet with desired safety features is a must.
How Important is It to Select Matched Outfit?
You can determine the importance of matching outfits to the boot in two different ways – either based on protection or fashion. Regarding protection, we do not think matching plays any role at all. Every motorcycle gear has its own protective features to protect the rider, and matching one stuff to the other does not increase or decrease the protection provided by those features. But yes, for fashion, it’s pretty cool to match the boots with outfits. And, if you’re riding for a date, a matching outfit is more than fabulous! A matched outfit with protective boots ensures both style and safety instead of only safety. However, never compromise your protection with fashion.
While riding, wearing motorcycle gear and clothing that perfectly match each other is incredible! As long as they don’t make any collision as to safety measures, we encourage them. But as fashion costs always, you should be mentally prepared to spend some bucks from your bank for that.
