Riding a motorcycle requires over-the-ankle protection. Most motorcycle boots are designed for that in mind, leaving little room for fashion. Chelsea boots are a stylish boot that have been a must for men’s wardrobes since the 1960s and they provide the protection a biker requires whether he cruises on a sport bike or a motor scooter.
Whether black, brown, or suede, Chelsea boots are ankle length and easy to slip into. Their elasticized sides provide both comfort and support. Most people don’t think of them and motorcycling in the same sentence, but bikers who commute to work or are venturing out for a night on the town know they need something more versatile than a clunky motorcycle boot. That’s where this iconic footwear comes into play.
Expertly constructed of durable, quality leather, a boot can withstand the wear and tear of riding while looking good. When a man parks his bike and takes off his helmet, he can be assured that his feet impress as much as his mode of transportation. His sense of style is intact and the impression that Chelsea boots make is as forceful as that of his ride.
Heaven forbid a motorcyclist meets a mishap on the road. If it happens though, he can rest assured that the high cut of his boots will protect the bones of his feet and ankles. Chelsea boots are not just comfortable for walking around. They are serviceable footwear, rugged enough for any weather and any situation. Handmade, as they always have been, Chelsea boots look good on the road, at a pitstop, in the office, and relaxed on the rail under a bar stool.
Men who adventure on the wilder side of the road put their faith in boots. They are boots fit for wherever a motorcyclist finds himself, whether it is straddling a humming engine or seated at a cafe enjoying a glass of wine with the bike parked nearby. How a man travels through the world is important, be it on two wheels or two feet. A man’s gear says a lot about him.
