Riding season is coming for some of us:D. Riding season never stops for others (lucky bas...):mad:. so one question that comes to mind is, what kind of footwear do you wear. I see sneakers, street shoes, army boots, cowboy boots.... You get what I'm driving to :rolleyes: What do you think is the safest?

A little know fact is that sneakers were once called loud pipe shoes because nobody could hear you walking with them. But those things can kill you so I wear work boots.

work, play, ride, rain, shine, i've been wearing the same pair of Timberland boots for more than 15 years now
Hell Bevo, you must be very easy on your boots! They look BRAND NEW:eek: Wish I could get that kind of milage out of my boots:)
Lehigh work boots, steel toe. Employer provided, got a little supply when I retired, down to my last pair:(

Most of the time I wear waterproof hiking boots with Vibram soles. I bought them at Sports Authority. Sometimes I'll wear my ropers or my Timberland chukka boots.

See a lot of riders here in Hawaii riding with slippas (flip flops), shorts and t-shirts! Crazy.

But after Labor Day (when white is too, too, gauche) I go with Nitro Touring(Street) boots. Ankle support, good traction, and comfortable enough to walk around in at sightseeing stops. Saves me from having to pack another pair of shoes in my touring gear. So you could say (if you were me) these would be my sole footwear....;)

So these boots are made for walking...

Good choice when owning a red bike I suppose......

Start walking...

My boots are universal. I find a pair that is comfy, protects my feet and gives me good ankle support. Then i were them for hiking, hunting, working & riding.

Well riding boots for a women are a little hard to find. I ended up with an HD pair that go up to my knees. I love them. They are practical and very comfortable and they help keep my legs warm. Trust me there are tons of high heel boots out there but not good for riding.
