Motorcycle footwear has come a long way in recent years, boots have evolved to not only keep your feet protected and comfortable whilst on the bike, but it's now also reasonable to expect them to be wearable off the bike too. Being urban riders, we want our boots to look just as good in the pub or feel just as comfortable walking down the high street as our everyday footwear. Not a lot to ask for, is it? But with the wide array of boots available on the market today, picking the right ones can sometimes be tricky. This is why we’ve narrowed it down to our top 5 for 2021!

TCX Street 3 Waterproof Boots

The TCX Street 3 is a rugged, street-ready CE approved motorcycle boot with a casual look resembling your favourite skater sneakers. This highly protective boot may be a looker on or off the bike, but it is packed with some of the most low-profile and effective rider protection available.

Street 3 owners will be protected by newly developed low profile D3O inserts in the malleolus as well as the latest technology from ZPLATE, with their advanced shank running down the centre of the shoe. This latest design gives the boot a more natural, free feeling flex compared to typical inserts, but crucially will protect your feet from impact in all directions.

Keeping a motorcycle boot lightweight and comfortable is not an easy task, but the Street 3 pulls it off while simultaneously hitting the bulls-eye in the looks department and adding a waterproof liner for good measure.

Overall, the Street 3 is a fantastic looking and super comfortable boot, but is set up to take an impact and keep you safe!

Merlin Ether Waterproof Boots

The Merlin Ether is a handsome worker style motorcycle boot with a no-nonsense, easy appeal that ticks all the boxes.

The D3O malleolus impact absorbers and a reinforced footbed guard against any blunt force or twisting. The mesh inner lining will wick away moisture from the inside and the anti-bacterial sole insert will keep the boots fresh and clean for longer.The Hipora triple liner system allows these boots to be waterproof and breathable, while the padded collar and tongue as well as a full-length YKK side zip make them an effortless go-to.

TCX X-blend Waterproof Boots

The TCX X-Blend hits the nail on the head when it comes to classic styling. A clean, minimal aesthetic with traditional lace-up fastening and extremely subtle branding are all the hallmarks of a vintage-styled boot that would be a welcome addition to any motorcycling get-up.

Crafted from a premium grain pull-up leather outer, the X-Blend will just get better and better with age. Waterproofing comes in the way of a full T-DRY lining, that will not only keep the rain away from feet but let them breathe too. The boots feature reinforced toe and heel counters, plus malleolus armour for protection, and a leather-reinforced shift pad.

What really sets these apart from the competition however is how lightweight and comfortable they are. They offer true all-day wearability, thanks to the OrthoLite® footbed - providing long term cushioning, and a high level of breathability and moisture-wicking due to the open-cell construction.
