For City Rides, Track Day Laps or Sports Tours Through Africa, Our Reviews of Motorcycle Boots Will Help You Find the Perfect Pair.

Do you even need specific motorcycle boots? Sure, you can wear regular shoes on your motorcycle, a good pair of boots is a much better option if you want to keep your feet in tact and not destroyed in the event of an accident. Feet, ankles and lower leg body parts are more fragile than we care to think they are and it only makes sense to support and protect them from the dangers that await them when riding a motorcycle. Specifically designed motorcycle boots come with features like a solid tread that keeps your feet from slipping off the pegs as well as tough materials and protection to enhance the safety of your feet.

Ok, so you now know a motorcycle boot is needed. You probably have more questions like where do you find great motorcycle boots? Which boot is best for your specific riding style or bike type or foot shape? Don’t sweat it because at wBw we have been putting motorcycle boots through torture testing for over 20 years and we’ve learned a thing or two in that time.

On this page we help you find the right motorcycle boot and help you navigate to the appropriate review to make sure you’re making an informed decision. Like most things, buying a motorcycle boot isn’t just about looks and style. There are lots of things to consider.

For example, you need to consider the type of riding you will be doing. Where are you spending most of my time riding? Is it once a week blast or every day commuting? What’s your riding style? Are you an aggressive rider or more of a cautious cruiser. What kind of terrain will you be riding on? Is it all city streets or dirt roads and track? How much protection do you want? What style will work best with your motorcycle and clothing? The list goes on and it is very specific to the individual which is why we created this guide and why we review so many boots.

Boots Reviews

Waterproof and Comfy Touring Boots The Dainese Fulcrum boots are made from soft, broken-in leather that is very comfortable. These are touring boots offering CE level protection and a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. Dainese has the Fulcrum boots listed in the “winter” category, but the Gore-Tex breathable liner works in hot weather also. Also, the “Skywalk” …

Icon Reign Waterproof Boots for Women and Men A sturdy, light weight, nice looking touring boot. But are they waterproof? As my husband can attest, I’m something of a gear collector. I have a whole section in my closet dedicated to riding jackets and pants. There are 4 helmets sitting on the shelf and so …

All Roads Conquered With the All Road Boots The Sidi All Road Gore-Tex boots were designed to replace the venerable and popular Sidi On Road boots (review). This means that lots of comparisons are being made, which is only natural. What isn’t natural — leather — is the new all synthetic construction of the All …

New Sidi Boots for 2015 October 17, 2014 – I stopped by the Motonation booth to see what was up and discovered these new Sidi boots for 2015. The $325.00 list price Sidi All Road boots will replace the very popular Sidi On Road boots (review) that have been in the lineup for many years. I was …

Sidi Mag-1 Motorcycle Boots The new Sidi Mag-1 boots are top-of-the-line race boots loaded with technology and new features. They’re sort of a slimmed-down evolution of the Sidi Vortice boots (review) but made lighter (claimed 17%), much easier to wear and they’re also very comfortable, even for street use. New features include a redesigned “Tecno-3” ratcheting micrometric …

Dainese Long Range D-WP C2 Boots Review A high-quality pair of street/touring boots that are a good value even at its price point. Definitely worth a look for the serious touring or sport/touring rider. Motorcycle boots have a hard life. Not only are they asked to provide protection from impacts, abrasion and the elements they …

Sidi Apex Lei Women’s Motorcycle Boots The Sidi Apex Lei boots are the women’s version of the Sidi Apex boots and similar to the Sidi Vertigo Lei boots (review). These are short boots with serious protection. Both the Apex and Apex Lei boots have similar features but the Apex Lei version is specially designed for the …

Aeromoto Dry Tour Waterproof Motorcycle Boots A better than expected waterproof boot for the price. Motorcycle footwear choices. I think newer riders may not appreciate the wide variety of boots (and shoes) we have today that are made specifically for motorcycle riders. It wasn’t too long ago that the only choice you’d have to make …

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 …

The Vendramini Marahton boots are made in Italy from real leather. These are very comfortable boots! The boots have a wide range of adjustments and include inner and outer ankle protection and shin protection. Vendramini claims that the Marathon boots are waterproof. But we haven’t used these boots in the rain so we can’t verify …

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 “Traffic Air” Boots Review The Sidi Traffic Air boots are the fully perforated version of the Sidi Traffic Rain boots. They include two useful features and also something rather interesting that we discovered. First, they’re “user friendly” due to the simple side entry zipper. And the combination of perforated sides and thin liner give …

Tactical Boots Comparison Are you willing to forgo some of the features of motorcycle-specific riding boots? Then try the Ridge Outdoors “9000 Ultimate Zipper boots” and the Blackhawk “Warrior Wear Light Assault Boots”. They will cover most — perhaps all — of your riding needs. They are both rugged, functional, extremely comfortable, and cost less …

VQuattro “Milano Academy” Motorcycle Boots The VQuattro Milano Academy boots are the final pair of our preview trio. As with the other VQuattro boots, I don’t have much information on these.

We have reviewed hundreds of helmets over the year at WBW so we know a thing or two about which motorcycle boot brands our editors love. We also see the analytics on the site so we know which brands get the more views and attention from our readers.

Alpinestars Boots

alpinestars boots reviews

alpinestars logo

Alpinestars makes technical, high performance protective gear for Motorcycle, Motocross, and Auto Racing and more recently for action sports like Adventure/Touring, Mountain Biking and Cycling.

It all started in 1963 when a leather craftsman by the name of Sante Mazzarolo began creating the first Alpinestars branded products.

At that time a new sport called motocross was establishing itself. Low and behold Mazzarolo invented a new type of footwear that would meet the protective needs and demands of this beautiful yet brutal form of athleticism. Since then, Alpinestars Boots have become ubiquitous in street riding and track day events. The boot quality is high, prices are reasonable given that quality and the boots perform well in tough conditions.

Sidi Boots

sidi boots logo

In 1960 SIDI began as a craftsman’s workshop manufacturing mountain sports footwear. It wasn’t till the 1970’s that SIDI began making cycling footwear and boots for off-road and on-road motorcycling.

SIDI is a top brand and market leader in both cycling and motorcycle boots and with over 50 years of experience you can tell why. Known for their technology and innovation, Sidi boots were known to do things well before others and that are taken for granted today by riders. For example, SIDI was the first with cam-lock off road boot buckle systems, inner ankle protection and sole replacement systems to name a few. SIDI boots aren’t cheap but they are worth every penny if you can afford them, they are the cream of the crop.

Dainese

dainese boots reviews

dainese logo

“Dainese uses innovation and new technology to create protective gear and clothing for motorcycle, bike, equestrian and winter sports” according to the Dainese official website.

Started in 1972 the team there makes not only motorcycle boots but all types of other protective gear (back protectors, gloves, airbags and more). A very focused R&D outfit, Dainese was the first to develop a super cool instant-deployment airbag suit and jacket system – it basically blows up like an inflatable balloon to protect you in a crash.

On the boot side of the house, the team at Dainese makes boots for touring, street and track. The unique mix of technical features and style elements make Dainese motorcycle boots a staple among European motorcycle enthusiasts such as Ducati, Triumph or BMW.

Icon Motorcycle Boot Reviews

Makers of Helmets, Jackets, Gloves, Pants, Footwear the team at Icon is one of the largest street based protective motorcycle apparel brands in the world.

Founded in 2002, ICON exploded onto the scene with unabashed attitude – maybe that’s why we love them so much. They focus on the modern performance rider who rides in the real world of messed up roads. Their core mission is “protecting riders whenever and however we can, knowing that reckoning day is coming for all of us”.  That’s why Icon boots rugged and top quality. We love the price point of Icon because they are affordable for most riders, definitely a fan favorite for sure.

REVIT

REV'IT Boots

REV'IT Logo

With a focus on innovation and well designed motorcycle clothing, REV’IT knows how to make cool boots.

We love the way REV’IT describes themselves so we wanted to include that here: “Whether it is setting a personal best lap time on the track, braving roads less traveled or navigating through the streets of your favorite city while knowing you are properly protected, it is our goal to provide you with the gear that enables you to follow your dreams on two wheels. It is why we started our company in 1995, and it is what still moves us today.”

We like that. Definitely somebody who takes the motorcycle life seriously and who “gets it”.
