STYLMARTIN Motorcycle Sneakers

Hot summer weather demands new, breathable biking shoes

Got these STYLMARTIN boots from 24helmets.de
They were shipped out 15 mins after i pressed the PAY button. Talk about fast service!!

I have used Stylmartin in the past and these are no different; high quality, breathable and supportive. Obviously not racing boots, but a good compromise between protection and comfort i believe.

I've always worn proper motorcycle boots, but with the Bobber, I do like my TCX Street Ace boots, very similar in style to yours.

My Daytona touring boots are cool in summer and warm in winter, and at the price I can only afford one pair!

I second the TCX.
Their street air version is amazing and very comfy. I have changed the inner soles (like I do in most of my shoes/boots) to get better support and more cushioning when walking.
I’ve had the street airs for over a year and they are wearing well.

I tried some Daytona boots while in Scotland. Probably the best protective boots around. But for me, the SIDI’s were a slightly better fit.
And you’re right Guzzilazz, the Daytona’s are mighty expensive...!

Mine are 10 years old, and look (well if they were cleaned) like new. No wear on the soles at all

Yes. They have an awesome reputation.
One day I’ll find a pair that fit properly
For some reason I was in between sizes on all the boots I tried and none felt “right”.

Picked up a pair of those Stylmartin riding sneaks in the Spring. Very cool Italian styling and a good option for around town rides. Good that the boot people a have figured out some decent protection in riding shoes as an alternative to full on boots.

I can already hear the barrage of comments while I type this but I've always worn Vans.

Won´t hear any snide remarks from me.
I am guilty of riding in cargo pants + van style shoes too

You will also hear NO judgmental comments from me either. Each to their own and one can't really have true freedom without 'choice'.

I've never embraced being 'practical', I've always just gone with what I love.

Here are my old boots I had made around 25 years ago and I have worn them almost exclusively all that time both for riding and just every day. They are not practical, not waterproof, not very protective, quirky colours and almost falling apart but they are MY boots.

Cheerio,

Roy
