This splashproof Gordon 2 motorcycle shoe lends itself for use on and next to the motorcycle. This second version has been finished in a more refined way and further, exhibits a typical Gianni Falco product. It sounds English, is Italian, was given a classic style and that international approach delivers a classic but modern motorcycle shoe.
‘A rigid army boot’, we’d say. You can walk around town in these, head to the office or step on your motorcycle. Combined with (motorcycle) jeans, you’ll create a look that fits in everywhere. Being really extravagant with these Gordon 2 isn’t really in the cards but the Italian flair is a certainty and the full-grain leather exterior is nice to look at. Pay attention to the stylised falcon that acts as a logo here.
With an integrated High-Tex® membrane on the inside, Gianni Falco provides this firm motorcycle shoe with a waterproof status. To Italian standards, this is probably true. The occasional rain shower, a few splashes, all within bounds. Calling something really ‘waterproof’ and then placing it close to the ground behind the front wheel of a motorcycle, that’s something else. We’ll stick to ‘splashproof’.
The otherwise very comfortable Gordon is assisted by the patented D3O®-material the ankle cup is made of. D3O® focuses on an efficient shock absorption and protection, combined with an extraordinary wearing comfort and maximum flexibility.
A firm, oil and petrol resistant vulcanised rubber sole with lots of grip provides a comfortable twin use, on and next to the motorbike. Take a look at the fine seams around the sole: Gianni Falco commemorates the Italian flair and eye for detail. Excellent.
Opening and closing the shoe is quick and easy if you go for the zip. That YKK slides up and down, from the inside. Of course, there are also laces that add that little extra with their beautifully detailed lace rings and hooks.
The Gordon 2 is still a stylish, trendy, ankle-high motorcycle shoe that doesn’t really look like a motorcycle shoe.
The higher the fashion level - and the level of ‘we don’t really look like motorcycle shoes’ -, the smaller the chance your leather shoes have a full-fledged shifting reinforcement. No problem on a scooter but on a motorbike, the multitude of shifting will quickly cause wear and tear. A shame of the leather shoes because this “wear and tear” will not often be incorporated in the warranty conditions.
You’d better take precautions, give yourself a hand or a foot in this case and add an extra layer to your leather motorcycle shoe or your gear lever. There are a number of options available in our range.
There is maintenance clothing and then there is clothing maintenance. Good, solid motorcycle clothing is an investment in comfort and personal safety. So invest in its maintenance after your purchase and enjoy your gear for longer.
