The coral snake krait has a triangular diameter and is usually striped. The only reason to name a shoe after this creature probably has something to do with the fact that a krait always has all of its feet on the ground …
Or is it the colour difference between the shaft and the shoe itself? Anyway, kraits are extremely poisonous, which is about the opposite of what REV’IT! has achieved with this ankle-high motorbike shoe. Although not everything you see matches reality: these sneakers are waterproof (thank you, GORE-TEX) and if you look closer, you’ll find ruggedness in the mesh panels and the oiled suede. In other words, they look friendlier and more casual than they are, which isn’t completely true because they sit excellently and are perfect for a town visit without motorcycle.
Riddled with contradictions, right? Maybe that suits a waterproof sneaker just fine.
They are versatile. Ideal for that summer ride that suddenly turns ugly or when you’re ready to go without checking the weather first, assessing that dodgy looking dark cloud. With its flexible rubber sole and the anatomically formed OthoLite® footbed, you’ll hardly feel them on your feet.
Heel and toe can count on the necessary reinforcement. You open and close these motorbike shoes with the laces and when you do this from the top, you’ll avoid the risk of hooking around gear or brake levers.
Casual but with a lot of performance capacity, let’s keep it at that.
