The second you go to search for "motorcycle boots," you realize just how broad of a spectrum the category truly is. There are boots for every style rider, for every category of bike — and nearly every situation imaginable. However, the main problem with a good portion of roadworthy motorcycle boots is they look like, well, motorcycle boots.
Some have chunky plastic buckles; others are more akin to old-school cowboy boots, while others tend to look like they’re made for walking on the moon. Point is, most motorcycle boots are unstylish and unsuitable for everyday use; they only look appropriate when you’re astride the bike, riding.
Since you can’t ride your bike through the front door of the restaurant and park it at your table, qualified boots that look just as good on the bike as they do off are always good to have in your gear arsenal.
