CB's choice: Our favourite motorcycle boots for every riding style

Below we have highlighted one of our favourite pieces of footwear for every riding style. A boot or shoe for everyone, from the people that race on the tracks and the one's that race to work, to the one's seeking adventure or seeking style and the motorcyclists that push the limit offroad. We have motorcycle footwear for anyone.

Adventure awaits with the Forma Terra Evo

The Forma Terra Evo is a very robust adventurer's boot, particularly aimed at all-terrainers who can be found mostly on the dirt. As far as we're concerned, the Terra Evo is the most offroad-focused adventurer's boot; you could almost label them as enduro boots already. The full-grain leather construction is treated with oil for a nice finish, and this also makes them very abrasion-resistant. The boots are equipped with more than enough synthetic reinforcements to protect the foot: a large heel protector, shin protector and -perhaps most important- the ankle reinforcement that ensures that your ankle cannot tip over to the side. The buckles are made of aluminum and are interchangeable. The sole offers great grip in bad terrain which comes in handy when you need to push your bike out of the muck! Speaking of the sole, the Terra Evo comes with a set of steel toe guards that you can install yourself if you like. A true adventure boot not only provides protection but also comfort. The Drytex membrane keeps your feet dry and the inside of the boot is lined with soft polymer memory foam for added comfort. The Terra Evo also has the APS Air Pump System for improved air circulation around and under the foot.

Sidi Rex Air, made to race

The Sidi Rex Air top-of-the-range race boots have everything you need. The boots take protection to another level, it offers a replaceable shin plate and toe slider. The innovative closure system allows for a simple and quick fit. The boot is equipped with 3 steel cable adjustable closures with a TECNO-3 PUSH rotor. The PUSH button allows the buckle to be lifted for more closing pressure. The shin and ankle mechanisms allow a symmetric closure. The instep mechanism ensures a snug yet comfortable fit. A single ankle support brace combines with the internal and external ankle joint for more support. In the outer lower part, the ankle support brace is equipped with air vents which can be operated by an aerodynamic shaped button. The ankle support brace is made with Nylon material with Glass Fiber.

Dominate the streets with the REV'IT! Astro Black Blue

These aren’t your average sneakers. In fact, REV'IT! really pushed the limits of what contemporary motorcycle footwear can look like, with the Astro. Inspired by progressive design styles in the high fashion world, this sneaker is unlike anything else in REV'IT!'s collection. Offered in a variety of colors, the partially perforated nubuck leather along with 3D air mesh comprises the exterior of the Astro. Inside, a leather lining not only adds comfort, but naturally helps with moisture wicking. In terms of safety, the shoes are equipped with reinforcements at the ankles, heels, and toes, along with thermoformed heel cups and toe caps. A leather shift pad gives onlookers the subtle hint that they’re meant for more than just looking good. Furthermore, the incorporated OrthoLite® X40 insole gives wearers that extra bit of pillowy softness while on-foot. Want to mix things up a little with a simple tweak? We thought so. Each pair of Astro shoes comes with an extra pair of laces with a different color, so you can style them the way you want. Stand out in the crowd. Stand comfortable. Ride safely.

The Alpinestars Tech 10 deliver at the highest standard of Motocross

The Tech 10 has set the standard for Motocross boot performance and protection for well over a decade and for summer 2018 the completely re-designed Tech 10 boot raises the performance envelope even further. Perfection through innovation; while maintaining the iconic Tech 10 look, the new boot represents an entirely new approach - improving its ability to give a rider the ultimate in feel, comfort and safety. The Tech 10’s re-design has been guided by three priorities as the Alpinestars technical footwear development team looked to improve overall functionality, performance and safety, decrease weight and reduce material volume. Maximizing these priorities is the key achievement of the new Tech 10 and the result is an all new boot with a greater range of movement and flexibility while offering better control over the flexion and torsion forces that significantly improve boot performance, giving the rider greater confidence and protection.

Comfort and class, the Helstons Liberty

The Helstons Liberty boot sits somewhere between a trainer-style boot and a more robust work-style boot. The boot is made entirely from leather and, for added comfort, is calfskin lined. All this makes it a supremely comfortable boot both to walk around in and to ride in. You get soft, energy-absorbing protectors in the ankles and a gearchange pad on the toe. The sole is white and flat. This gives the boot a particularly cool aspect, but the benefit of the flat, slightly wedged sole is that it works really well on the bike, allowing you to move your feet along the pegs without a heel getting in the way. The Liberty has been treated for waterproofing, although it does not have a waterproof membrane. The benefit here is that the boot will breathe much better in hot weather; and the lack of a membrane is not a problem because, in truth, we don’t think this is the kind of boot you’d want to wear in heavy rain, anyway.

Almost everything for every riding style!
