    Forma Adventure boots become firm favourite

    Time tested: 6 months/15,000 miles What’s good? These are, without doubt, the most comfortable motorcycle boots that I have worn. They’re rugged and have seen me through plenty of miles this year. The...

    RiDE Review: Altberg Roadrunner

    Traditional-looking boots, with nothing to grab the eye and no novelties that leap out of the spec sheet. But they work, and feel like they’ll keep on working forever. We’ve been wearing these for six...

    RiDE Review: Sidi Armada GoreTex

    Excellent boots with more going on than meets the eye. Velcro flap over the zip can be removed to put the boots into a more summery mode. There’s a stretchy top panel at the rear, and an elasticated...

    RiDE Review: Daytona Road Star GTX

    Lower than other touring boots, these heavily built Daytonas are instantly comfortable. The calf width is adjustable, and there’s the choice of a wide fitting at no extra cost. They’re good to walk in...

    Spada Pilgrim riding shoes review (£99.99)

    What’s good about the Spada Pilgrim riding shoes? These look great. When you ride a retro like my Ducati Scrambler it seems daft turning up with full-on boots, but wearing footwear that’s not designed...

    TCX Lady X-Boulevard boots review (£139.99)

    What’s good about the TCX Lady X-Boulevard boots? From first wear these have been comfortable, both on and off the bike, taking very little breaking in. I’m riding a Harley-Davidson Street 750 this...

    09 September 2016 by Tim Thompson

    Held waterproof overboots review (£29.99)

    What’s good about the Held waterproof overboots? It’s summer, so you’re wearing summer boots – vented ones, I’d guess, perhaps a tad racy and certainly without a waterproof membrane. Then it rains and...

    Dainese Latemar Gore-Tex boots review (£270)

    What’s good about the Dainese Latemar Gore-Tex boots? These waterproof boots saw me through a cold and very wet winter of riding with no issues at all. They were comfortable immediately and even in...

    Alpinestars S-MX Plus boots review (£259.99)

    What’s good about the Alpinestars S-MX Plus boots? I’ve worn Alpinestars Supertech R boots ever since the Italian firm released them, and despite trying several other brands and boots down the years,...

    Product Review: Aldi Touring Boots (£29.99)

    What’s good about the Aldi Touring Boots? The value for money! If you need a pair of boots to keep your feet warm and dry, but don’t have a lot of money, then these are just the ticket. They’re light...

    Product Review: Sidi ST Air (£274.99)

    What’s good about the Sidi ST Air? I got these Sidi boots for a long jaunt to Spain last year, in 30oC heat the ventilation system worked brilliantly and my feet were left cool and dry while my...

    Product Review: Gaerne GP1 boots (£249.99)

    What’s good about the Gaerne GP1 boots? These are some of the comfiest boots I’ve worn straight out of the box. They’re not too stiff and required little bedding in. Despite the fact they’re race...

    Product Review: Sidi Roarr boots (£199.99)

    What’s good about the Sidi Roarr? A good halfway house between a full-on track boot and a road boot, the Roarr are beautifully made and boast features like replaceable toesliders, slide vents, and...

    Rev’it Royale H2O boots

    What’s good about the Rev’IT Royale H2O? Apparently these are motorcycle boots! But they don’t look like them; they’re super-stylish, very well made, lightweight and sophisticated – unlike most casual...

    Product Review: Sidi ST Gore boots (£314.99)

    What’s good about the Sidi ST Gore? I always have trouble finding boots that fit well, because I have laughably thin calves. These Sidis are the only boots I’ve found so far that can fit securely...

    Dainese Axial Pro In boots (£379.99)

    What’s good about the Dainese Axial Pro In? These race boots walk a fine line between feel and substance, and do it perfectly. They are stiff in the right places (laterally and in a twisting motion)...

    RiDE review: Alpinestars S-MX Plus boots

    As comfortable on as off the bike. Only flimsy ankle articulation lets the protection down. Easy to get on and off, and well made, they instantly feel comfortable. Available vented or unvented, these...

    RiDE review: RST Tractech Evo boots

    A great-value boot that you can choose to have vented or waterproof for £20 more. Took a little while for the microtech – a man-made material that’s lighter than leather – to break in, but once it did...

    RiDE review: Daytona Security Evo 3 boots

    These are strictly race boots – they are so armoured and the sole is so rigid they make walking uncomfortable. But if you want the best protection nothing comes close. Hand-made, with a carbonfibre...

    RiDE review: Alpinestars Supertech R boots

    Strangely has the lowest CE score of any boot tested. But these are a racing boot so feel and thorough ankle articulation control are put before more road-based protection. The most comfortable,...

    Full marks from the CE tests and a rigid ankle articulation brace that could make a real difference in a crash. Plastic is everywhere, which helps the abrasion score. Inside all that plastic the...

    Very expensive if you look at the CE results, but get them on your feet and feel the quality. Lots of adjustment and built up inside by 20mm to give a more secure footing when riding. Gore-Tex, tough...

    RiDE review: TCX S-Speed GTX boots

    These are a firm pair of boots that took some time to bed in but are now comfortable on and off the bike. Built for a narrow foot, the quality is superb and a lot better than their price suggests.

    What’s good about the Falco Axis 2 boots? For the money these have proved to be a really good pair of boots. I’ve got solid calf muscles and struggle to get boots to fit round these, but as these are...
