Proper motorcycle boots. With such easy access to credit and the internet nowadays there's no problem in fitting yourself out the correct gear to pass yourself off as a discerning biker. Although something that gets often missed in the bike stop when you're checking the fit in their full length mirror is footwear - motorcycle boots. Even when this rider does tick off that box of 'motorcycle boots', putting them on somewhere else than under the bed after taking all the new kit home, seems to be an insurmountable obstacle for some. We've all seen them, riders with not less than $20k for this years 'best rated bike in its class' & as much top notch helmet/jacket/gloves that a modern credit card can manage, waiting at the traffic lights with dirty over long laces of their Nikes runners as a dead giveaway that the motorcycle is more about owning it than riding it. Sure, I get that you use the bike for your day to day & strutting ‘bout in bike gear you can’t remove at your destination, like boots, may not be the coolest thing. But there’s a shit load of motorcycle boots you can get & wear under your ‘pants’ (reinforced bike specific casual look jeans for example) that look way smart as just casual footwear away from the bike. It’s ironic really, as your feet are the closest part of your body to potential injury while riding, and from my limited experience, the most likely part of your riding gear that cops impact & abrasion even from just regular riding let alone an off. I won’t even touch on casual footwear worn on long/technical rides, which would speak for itself from what else I’ve ranted on so far. So use your head & think of your feet.
