Video-Many of you Bikaholics out there wear the traditional motorcycle riding boots and I did for many years. That's until I discovered the world of motorcycle riding shoes. There's nothing wrong if you want to continue to wear your bulky, hot, and heavy motorcycle boots.
I am a progressive biker and not afraid to break away from traditional Harley-style cruiser boots. There are and array of motorcycle riding shoes out there and I plan on testing many over time. Many of them offer more protection than boots, are lighter, breath better, and in this case waterproof. I like riding shoes, because I can ride with them and then get off and have some of the comforts of a sneaker while walking around. I love the style too.
In this video, I review the Cortech Vice Waterproof (WP) Ridings Shoes. These have a great look, offer great protection, are cooler than boots, and waterproof! I tested these shoes for over 8,000 miles of riding and in rain, shine, hot temps, and cold temps.
The shoes are great while riding in the rain and kept my feet very dry! They are stiff at first while walking around, but after a couple days they break right in. In very hot weather (105 deg Fehrenheit) they are cooler than traditional boots, but your feet will still be warm. In colder temps (30 deg Fahrenheit) the shoes kept my feet pretty warm and blocked wind well.
You can expect American sizing on the Vice Riding Shoes. I ordered the same size as all my shoes and they fit great.
