Boots for a short rider

I am having difficulty finding a boot with a 3" (or thereabouts) heel that is not a "fashion" motorcycle boot (or a 2-up boot). The bike I am looking to move up to requires me to have a little extra height in order to feel comfortable in the seat. Has anyone out there found a boot with a higher heel that is still a real rider's boot??? Help!!!!

I can relate to petite girl shoe issue...
by: Michele

I can relate, as I have been online all morning ...looking for boots with a lift that will help me touch the ground without the heel getting hung up on the motorcycle foot peg. I was looking for something safe, and a little bit stylish, but designed for riders. I finally settled on a pair of Womens Heartbreaker boots from Joe Rocket. They were only $107.99 and I ordered them. They have a stacked lift in the heel. My only concern is that they do not have a lift for the toe, which seems a little unbalanced to me. I have not received them yet, but I think other then the toe lift missing, I will love them. What Doc Martens did you end up getting, in case these do not work out? Just curious..I haven't given up the search for a couple of perfect pairs. Thanks! Michele

Thanks, everyone!

Thank you to everyone who added comments! I am looking at a pair of Doc Martens that seem good and sturdy and give me the height I need. I have looked at everything everyone has suggested here - there were many good suggestions. And after giving it further thought, I don't think I need more than 2" (praise jeebus), so more standard boots work fine and I don't have to compromise on the bike.

You are all so fabulous and supportive - thank you so much!

Three inches?

Three inches? If you need that much height, I guarantee that isn't your only issue. Find a bike that fits and take some classes.

Try Frye

Ck out Frye boots. Many moto styles and two inch-plus block and stacked heels. I'm in the same boat.

good but expensive

Check out the Daytona Lady Star boots. They'll give you extra height.

These were my first riding boots when I had a taller bike and needed help with the reach. They added height but were heavy and not water resistant at all. The least bit of rain and I could feel the water running in from the laces. I traded my tippy-toe bike for one with a lower seat height.


I now wear these boots and love them:

I use regular pull on boots w/steel toe usually for road/construction crews, has 2.5 inch heel. My 2nd pair, is laced up construction boots w/steel toe, that I've added 1inch to the full sole(done at shoe repair store).

I have the Xelement boots with the side buckle. They were $70 and very comfy! Adds some height too.
