Motorcycle riders never compromise. Be it a day long journey or a quick trip to the store we always gear up. Helmet, pants, jacket, gloves and motorcycle boots. Every piece of armor is attached to our body every time. When we're rushed and just want to get out the door it's certainly tempting to cut corners and the boot is often the first thing to go. The bottom line: Motorcycle boots are indeed an aspect of the complete rider image but in reality it's all about protection.
