When I first imported my bike and my riding gear from local motorcycle importers, I had a hard time landing the right fit and type of riding boots. Mind you, riding boots are just not the type of gear you choose over a faraway look (‘cause you buy them only once! Or at least that was the plan then.) You also need to get the feel.
Motorcycle riding is a male-dominated field, and therefore getting technical riding gear for women can be a bit of a challenge. Any committed female rider will tell you they continue to face similar difficulties in the industry. However, below is a list of five motorcycle boots for women that can help narrow your search:
Alpinestars Stella SMX-1 R
Take my word, you will love the enhanced ventilation of the perforated Alpinestars Stella SMX-1 R boot. These boots have a secure fit and flex. The rubber sole gives them an excellent grip and makes them comfortable to wear. They are also lightweight and durable, and you will have no problem finding the right shoe size which nicely fits the contours of your feet.
Harley-Davidson Women’s Amherst Motorcycle Boot
For us who are brand conscious, the Harley-Davidson Women’s Motorcycle Boot is an excellent choice. It’s not just a question of style. This boot’s full-grain leather makes it durable, while the cushioned textile insole offers much comfort. Additional features include the dependable dual YKK zippers and the rubber outsole with excellent grip.
Joe Rocket Heartbreaker boot
The Joe Rocket Heartbreaker is a touring boot that offers more coverage than other riding boots and keeps the feet protected in all kinds of weather. Although it has a flat heel, it has a two-and-a-half heel on the inside. The suede front is quite attractive in addition to providing greater motion. The Joe Rocket Heartbreaker is also comfortable for walking, and the narrow expansion strip at the back allows it to stretch at the calf area. It also has adjustment buckles to allow for a better fit.
TCX Lady Aura Plus boots
The TCX Lady Aura Plus boots is another of my favorite touring boot for women. It is waterproof and therefore suitable for all weather conditions. Its heel and toe counters and shin plates offer protection to the feet. The TCX Lady Aura Plus is remarkably comfortable and is also durable due to its full-grain leather construction.
Frye ‘Veronica Shortie’ Boot
You will love the soft and supple leather upper of the Frye “Veronica Shortie” boot. It has fully adjustable buckles to allow for a perfect fit. The outsole is a work of art with leather and rubber held together with high-quality stitching.
