Those who travel on a motorcycle that suggests that a dash of off-road is no problem at all, can go for an adventure boot as matching footwear. Admittedly, in our parcelled out Flemish country it's more a question of image, but there are certainly destinations where off-roading is still possible.
With their robust construction and recognizable quick-release fasteners, motorcycle boots for adventure use are very recognizable. Except for the height, they all look quite similar. The distinctive quick-release fasteners make them easy to put on and take off, and perform a lot better than a zipper in muddy conditions.
Strikingly large shin guards are more than just a visual aspect: off-road you sometimes run the risk of throwing up a stone or solid clod. Heel, ankle and toe are of course protected, often by hard plastic or even metal reinforcements.
Of course. The standard image of the motorbike carving its way through a river is as close as you can get to adventure. Almost all adventure boots are waterproof and made of durable and breathable leather. An added benefit? Leather is adaptable, so your boots will fit just about perfectly after a while. The microfibre used keeps its shape and is easy to maintain.
Maintaining motorcycle shoes and boots is relatively easy, although it's best to do it right from the start, so you can enjoy them for a long time.
