While helmets are probably the most important piece of gear you could ever wear, you don't want to skimp when it comes to your feel. There's no brain in your toes, so you aren't going to die if you booger up you feet badly, but ask anyone who's had an accident without the right footwear and they'll tell you it sucks. Buy yourself some damn good boots and protect your little piggies. Here's three pairs of boots that come highly recommended.
Harley-Davidson Foxfield Boots
Harley-Davidson doesn't just make some seriously impressive motorcycles, they also make some of the best riding gear out there. Case in point, the Harley-Davidson Foxfield Boots. For a very reasonable price, you can get your hands on some sturdy motorcycle boots from Harley. These things are constructed from 90 percent leather and 10 percent thermoplastic polyurethane. Translation: they're tough boots. They feature a rubber sole and a full-length cushioned sock lining that will keep your feet feeling great for hours on end. And they look good.
Joe Rocket Big Band 2.0 Boots
Looking a little more modern and sporty than the Harley-Davidson boots, the Joe Rocket Big Band 2.0 Boots feature a strap and buckle and laces to keep them on your feet, molded polymeric ankle protection and triple stitching wherever you might need it. These things are as tough if not tougher than the Harley boots and feature a more modern style. Also, they're a bit cheaper, which makes them even more desirable. These boots would look great with just about any other style gear and bike. If you want something that's an all around good boot, this is it.
Vega Merge Boots
The Vega Merge boots have a little bit more of a sporty look than the other boots on this list. They feature a fit that's suitable for both male and female riders, superior padding for extra comfort and a tough rubber sole that will hold up for many years to come. These boots would look best paired with some other sporty gear, but they wouldn't look odd on any motorcycle out there. And they're a little cheaper than both of the other pairs of boots on this list. Vega gives you a lot of boot for the money.
