Sidi Gas Shoes Review, a wBW Quick Look Sidi’s continuing commitment to form, fit and function is well represented in the Sidi Gas Shoe. The Sidi Gas shoes are light and comfortable while providing basic protection for light weight riding activities and as a casual supportive shoe for walking or hiking. Part of the Sidi Design …

Tourmaster Response SC Road Boots The Tourmaster Response SC boots have all the important stylistic and functional features of the recent crop of low-cut, short motorcycle boots, but at a slightly lower cost. I love my Doc Martens. I‘ve had ’em for years and they are so broken in that they slip on with barely …

RS Taichi RSS006 Drymaster Boa Motorcycle Riding Shoes The RS Taichi RSS006 Drymaster Boa Riding Shoes are a good mixture of form and function. The shoes — or boots — have some style without being over-the-top and the protective features are good for a motorcycle boot or shoe of this style. The Boa lacing system …

Tourmaster Response 2.0 WP Road Boots A comfortable and reasonably protective boot that is a real sleeper when it comes to bang for the buck. But, are they really waterproof? When it comes to riding gear, my boots get the most use. I often commute to work on my bike and when I get there, …

Sidi “Nitro” Boots Review The Sidi Nitro boots are comfortable and good-looking. The boots are constructed from Sidi’s “TechnoMicro” synthetic leather, a lightweight substitute just like the real thing. The latest Sidi Techno 3 closure system is the big bonus here; it works smoothly and effectively to form-fit the boots to individual comfort. The system …

TCX “X-Cube” Waterproof Boots The TCX X-Cube boots are available in waterproof and “Air” versions. These are comfortable mid-height boots with a short-boot look. But they provide more protection than many shorter motorcycle boots, especially around the ankles. The X-Cube boots also have very nice styling and detailing, with complete double stitching used throughout. The …

Built-in Spats for Asphalt Style The Dainese Asphalt shoes are comfortable, stylish and comfortable. But, wide feet may not fit. A few of the safety and protective features have been borrowed from Dainese race boots, a nice surprise. They’re also a great match for the Dainese Druids gloves and the rest of the AGV and …

Cool-Looking Gore-Tex Boots The Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR boots are brand new for Fall 2011. First announced in the summer of 2011, the boots are just now available for sale.

Shift “Kicker” Street Shoe Review The new Shift Kicker Street Shoes are very comfortable and stylish. The shoes (boots) are easy to use and easy to wear, due to the speed-lacing system and quick-click locking buckle. Perforated leather on each side flows a lot of air, so these should be perfect for summer, if and …

SHIFT Fuel Street Shoes A cross between a street boot and a motorcycle boot that is successful at both. Nice styling and high-quality construction combined with comfort on and off the bike make these a winner. It’s not uncommon to see motorcyclists in Europe fully outfitted in leathers, race boots and other protective gear. Civilians …

Icon Accelerant Boots Review A reasonably priced waterproof boot that is comfortable but doesn’t really stand out from its peers. A protective and comfortable motorcycle boot that excels at being both protective and comfortable can be a difficult item to find. There are numerous reviews on webBikeWorld that back up this statement. A couple of …

Sidi “Slash” Motorcycle Boots The Sidi Slash street shoes or boots have mesh tops for excellent air flow. They have typical Sidi attention to safety but the absence of adjustability at the ankle may be problematic for some. Sidi is probably the King (and/or Queen) of motorcycle boots. I don’t suppose there is a registry …

Short Boots With BMW Style The BMW Street Sneaker 3 boots are comfortable right out of the box. After the outside of the sole hits the ground, there isn’t much sensation of wearing anything. They flex, support and provide pressure exactly where needed, at least for my foot. A small premium will be paid: I …

Sidi Doha Motorcycle Boots The Sidi Doha boots are very comfortable and good-looking. While they may not be equipped with the ultimate in protective features and they’re not waterproof, they are a good choice for casual motorcycling. I was originally asked to do the evaluation of the Sidi Vertigo Lei boots (review), which is now complete …

Falco 775 Novo Motorcycle Boots The Falco Novo boots have been styled with flair and they look good on just about any type of motorcycle. They’re way more comfortable than you’d think, especially for a motorcycle boot! My introduction to Falco boots came with the Falco ESO TT race boots (review), which are designed for sport …

Motorcycle Boots Are Also Comfortable for the Street The Jupiter 2 XCR is a short style boot that is suitable for riding, yet comfortable off the bike as well. It has a quality design and solid construction, and would make a good choice as a commuting or casual riding boot. Italian boot manufacturer TCX, formerly …

REV’IT!! Makes Boots! The new interesting short boot style is available in two formats. The Air Blend mesh and the Fighter H2O, which is waterproof. The boots are nearly identical in every other way. REV’IT! has 9 different types of boots in their 2008 lineup, including four different types of short motorcycle boots. There’s probably …

Lace-less Boots From REV’IT! The REV’IT! Freestyle boots have an interesting no-laces design. They’re comfortable with a good peg feel. Relatively light weight and the upper section is very flexible for walking. Claimed waterproof and uses breathable membrane. UPDATE:  REV’IT! Redesiged the Freestyle Boots for 2008 (See Below) It took a while, but I’ve become …

Alpinestars “Recon” Boots Review Reasonably priced and apparently well made but with a thin sole. It was a great plan. But, as plans do, it completely unraveled. The idea was to review a supah dee-luxe Enduro outfit. That would be the M2R Rally Cross jacket and pants combo with the Alpinestars Recon boots. Also, the cool Marushin Enduro helmet …

Roadgear TDF Motorcycle Boots Our new fascination with less-than-full-height motorcycle boots has led us to the Roadgear TDF, a relatively new product in the Roadgear lineup. I’m not sure that “short” is the best way to describe this type of motorcycle boot, but “height inhibited”, “ankle height” or “less than full height” don’t cut it, …

Setup Pegaso Air Vented Boots In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll have to admit right up front that when it comes to vented motorcycle boots, I’m biased. The truth is, I love my Oxtar TCS Sport boots.  They’re comfy and they flow lots of cooling air over my tired ol’ dogs. OK, so they squeak …

Kochmann SC 1000 Motorcycle Boots Super comfortable and they work well on and off the bike with good levels of protection for motorcycle riding. The outrageously cool Vendramini Aero boots are responsible for changing my taste in motorcycle footwear. I had been wearing race-style motorcycle boots for many years, but I’ve now come to realize that race …

Vendramini Aero Motorcycle Boots Red suede shoes?  Why not — Elvis and Carl Perkins would have flipped for these, I’m sure. It took me several days of peeking inside the Vendramini box to get up the nerve to actually try them on, but judging from the reactions I’ve gotten from others, they’re a hit. It’s …

Alt Roof -Berg Hogg Lite Boots Review Excellent quality, heavy-duty custom or semi-custom made motorcycle boots should last a long, long time. The British are renowned for an incredible number of remarkable travel exploits and discoveries through the centuries. Even today, the British seem to be second to none in exploring far-off lands. Want a …
