Great riding boot! Specially shaped soles with a rounded section molded in the middle, which helps the rider to keep a firm footing on the motorcycle’s foot pegs. Each boot has a rubberized toe protector patch and stiff ABS ankle protection. They have a cut-down rear section to help make them comfortable for walking. Plenty of padding up top, and they have a wide Velcro strap that covers the upper laces after the boots are tied.The tongue is padded and it’s attached to the boot all the way down to the toe, which helps to keep them waterproof. The Scout boots are lined with Sympatex, which is one of those breathable fabrics that also keeps out water. Reflective piping in various places around the boot. Only reason they are going is because I broke my foot and need a different size, :(. Free US shipping only.
