Diadora “Xtreme” Motorcycle Boots Light and airy feeling, the Diadora Xtreme boots are for riders who are looking for comfortable, good looking and affordable racing boot.

Sidi “Jasmine” Rain Boots Review They look like leather but these protective, waterproof motorcycle boots are made with Lorica.

Sidi “Slash” Motorcycle Boots The Sidi Slash street shoes or boots have mesh tops for excellent air flow.

TCX SS Performance 2 Boots Review The Oxtar TCS Sport boots I reviewed back in 2004 have been my all-time favorites for a number of reasons.
