Combining design features with aesthetics seems to be in the cards with this boot. Simple with its use of velcro to fasten panelling that looks purely decorative serves a greater purpose. Ribbed leather over the front and rear of the foot allow for easy movement in gear changing and walking between the bike and your ultimate destination. More numerous amounts of leather panels make the boot a more comfortable fit and a slimmer fit under pants while the ruber soles mean that there is plenty of grip in inclement weather. These boots are merely water resistant rather than water proof but leather in general is fairly hardy and it will take a bit of effort to get your toes soaked!
