Question What motorcycle boots do you wear?

I've only had a pair of Milwaukee harness riding boots that were purpose built for riding. They have been fine but I don't take long rides in them as they are not great for touring. They don't have the protection of touring boots and I'm looking for a bit more protection now. I would like to get a boot that is more of a dedicated touring boot.

I've been looking around and I really like the Icon 1000 Prep($270) and the Tourmaster Solution Air($130). Both are waterproof but that's where the similarities stop.

If you have anything to say about these boots or brands I'm all ears.

Im also open to hearing about other designated riding boots yall have found you like or don't like for long rides.

Up till now I've worn combat boots, cowboy boots, or work boots. I'm slowly getting better about wearing protective gear and figured my footwear could use an upgrade so here I am.

I've been looking for a pair the wife likes too but that is proving difficult. She is very fashionable and finds the motorcycle boots aren't.

Rossi P134 are my favourite Rossi P134 Road Motorcycle Boot
been through lots of them..the sole on the left boot wears out long before the rest of the boot so I buy a new pair when that happens..generally get em on ebay cheaper than retail...bought two pairs recently cos they were cheap and Ill use em.

Also got a pair of Johnny Rebs, the old classic long boots Buy Nolan Helmets | Zeus Helmet | Givi Luggage | S-W Motech | Bags Connection: Thomas Cook Johnny Reb Classic Long Boots
tend to wear em if Im going somewhere real important, classier looking boot than the Rossi

When I'm working in the workshop or garden it's my Steel Blue boots, Aussie made with a month comfort guarantee, no breaking in these boots they are Ace!

I am currently wearing the TCX X-Ride. They have been excellent. I have about 35k miles in them (about 3 years) The tread on the sole is pretty worn now, and I am looking at another pair of TCX boots that can be resoled.

If it weren't for the soles being worn out, the boots would keep on going. Very impressed with the quality and longevity of these.

I've tried "motorcycle" specific boots and I have two problems with them....looks and comfort, especially off the bike. What I find what works best for touring is a SWAT type boot. Right now I'm using a Thorogood Deuce, which works great. The boot is breathable and waterproof with a thick, flexible and well attached sole the toe box and ankles are wrapped in thick leather. I could walk or hike in them all day, which makes them very comfy on the bike also.

I love my Swat brand boots, and they do make a waterproof. As far as your wife, look at speed and strength. They make a lot of stylish gear for us girls. I find them hard to wear with my favorite jeans, and uncomfortable all day. The Swat is perfect for me.

Danner Quarry...Danner - Quarry USA 8" Brown

I like the 6 inch, but can't find 'em any more. I have the 8 inch Danner's now. They are comfortable on and off the bike. I like to go for random hikes and such while touring this great land, so I need something that can be worn on and off of the bike. I also can only afford one decent pair of boots, so these are my every day boots, bike boots, and work boots. Made in the ol USA too.

Hey Bulldog, I won't tell you what I wear cuz they are no longer made, but they have an inside full length zipper that make getting them on or off easy. The second pair you posted looks like something I'd get, so they must be good.
