  • womens boot?

    So my gal needs some better boots for the alaskan winter and she doesn't want to wear "ketchikan sneakers". So I thought I should look into waterproof motorcycle boots for her.

    So far from what I can tell, she digs the generic look of harness boots,
    and she likes the way icon's elsinore boots look. The taller the boot the less snow get in it. so tall boots are a plus.

    I have for a long time not enjoyed the quality of icon's products compared to their prices so I am still looking around.

    What are your ladies wearing, where can they be found? what type of quality is to be expected?

    My concern is that motorcycle boots really aren't meant to walk in. They don't offer a good sole nor the appropriate insole support. I also find that they aren't well insulated on the bottom of the foot.

    That being said, I have the Icon Bomshells and they are good for bike to real work use, they loom like normal boots. You can put insole in them and they look and work like real wedge boots. The soles would need to be watched and you would probably want to have them resoled with something more durable.

    I now ride in a* smx boots. They are great, comfortable for riding and short bursts of walking. They look like black storm trooper boots though, and I'd worry about wearing out the bottoms with a lot of walking.
    Get over yourself. For me to think you are an idiot, I would first need to think of you.

      Those look nice... thanks. How do I find a place to get boots resoled?
