Updating the original black ugg boots Bailey with a crystal-embellished metal star, this cozy Classic features the same durable, lightweight sole and luxurious sheepskin as always. It’s going to be a cold January but for the brave guys heading out on their bikes there is much fun to be had. The landscapes will be crisp, the air will be fresh and the roads will be waiting. The only piece of kit you really need for some hardcore riding are decent boots and we’ve rounded up three brand new contenders for you.
Spada Predators – Reliable and waterproof road touring boots
Price: Under 90 pounds
Spada is becoming an increasingly popular brand for motorcycle enthusiasts in the UK and across Europe because its products are durable and particularly good value for money. Spada touring boots have been prominently featured in the media and have performed well in magazine tests.
Their new 2010 Predator boots have a strong leather outer construction; a waterproof and breathable membrane; shin, ankle and calf protection; toe sliders which can be replaced; both zip and Velcro closure for a more secure fit and a rubber moulded gear change pad. There are very few brands who could boast the same quality for under 100 pounds.
Motorcycle News is one of the biggest independent reviewers of biker merchandise in the country. Spada has repeatedly got into their top product lists. For example Spada Thunder and Spada Element boots both made it into MCN’s top biking 10 boots for under 100 pounds. That was before their Predator boots hit the market – no doubt they will make their mark later this year.
These are the best boots for: Dedicated motorcyclists who want to spend long hours on the road without wet and cold feet.
These boots are not so good for: Hardcore racers – you guys need to look into sports boots. Look into Sidi Vertigo or Vortice Boots for a good alternative.
Spada Glides – Short road touring boots for extra freedom
Price: Under 50 pounds
Spada have avoided the winter blues with their new 2010 Glide Waterproof Motorcycle Boots. These half length tourers are guaranteed 100% rainproof and come in a sharp short style – giving you more freedom on the road and making leg movement feel less restricted and more natural.
The boots have a double leather and man made upper, giving a rider the quality of a traditional leather boot and the robust construction of synthetic materials. Glides include a waterproof and breathable Hipora membrane and a rubber gear change pad to stop the boots deforming from continuous wear.
All Spada touring boots, including their latest Glides, are fitted with velcro and zip closure for extra security, along with reflective piping on back to make sure that you’re seen by drivers, no matter what the weather has in store.
These are the best boots for: Footloose motorcyclists or commuters who want to feel the freedom of the road but don’t want to feel confined in their biking gear.
These boots are not so good for: Risk takers – that extra bit of protection from a full length boot will go a long way in a crash. If you like high speeds and sharp turns invest in a full length boot like the Spada Predators of Ghost Stealth Motorcycle Boots.
Spada Ladies Full Length Waterproof Sofia Motorcycle Boots – For serious female bikers
Price: Under 60 pounds
Women riders are increasing in numbers and they deserve their own kit. With that in mind Spada has designed its new 100 per cent waterproof Sofia Motorcycle Boots just for female bikers who have a passion for touring.
The new 2010 Sofia Full Length Waterproof Motorcycle Boots have a strong leather and man made outer construction; a waterproof and breathable membrane; shin, ankle and calf protection; reflective back panels so you are seen on the roads even in gloomy conditions; both zip and velcro closure for a more secure fit and a rubber molded gear change pad. They continue Spada’s theme of providing robust footwear for far less than their rivals.
Spada Sofia Boots are sleek but, more importantly, they are comfortable boots for serious touring.
These are the best boots for: Female bikers who are looking for tapered boots that will allow them to enjoy the roads for just as long as their male riding partners – in all weathers.
These boots are not so good for: Men – you may be favoured by Yorkie advertising campaigns, but these boots are not for boys.
