If The Boots Fit

If The Boots Fit

Motostrano has been selling motorcycle boots for nearly 9 long years. I didn't think of myself as becoming a high tech shoe salesmen when I started this company, but in fact that's what happened, in part And I've come to like that aspect of what I do. I like shoes. I like boots. They let us do what we want to do in comfort and safety and there's something "bionic" about motorcycle boots when you start to analyze them.

Motorcycle boots are highly technical pieces of body armor localized at your feet. Without them, think of your feet, unprotected, dangling in the air

with the whir of four or five buzz saws not 5 inches away, moving around, up and down. That's how I think about it.



Kind of like ski boots, but you can't walk in ski boots. Ski boots are kind of lame that way. Motorcycle boots are sort of like what you get when you want a running shoe designed for a cross country race on a volcano on a planet with no gravity- highly specialized technology for protection, safety, cooling and comfort.


One of the secrets that many riders don't know is that the leading boot companies don't only compete with each other on price, or similar boot categories or style, but also on he actual foot shapes and molds that each company relies on for all of their boots. Aside from all the technology and feature patents, it's those foot molds that each company has developed over the years that define what part of the market they serve and what boots fit who.

Motostrano's main boot brands have always been SIDI and Alpinestars, followed by Gaerne and Puma and over the years we have become very familiar with the ins and outs of their quality, performance and features. Whether you are in the market for a pair of boots now or later, please feel free to contact us by phone or by email with your boot questions.
