I have been looking around in shoe places for a pair of over-the-ankle boots so I can take the Basic Rider Course. I don't want to spend a lot of money because I don't know how far I will go with motorcycling. I'm trying to avoid anything over $60. I've been looking at working and hiking boots. I went to Walmart and they had SO MANY NICE PAIRS of over-the-ankle boots for MEN, and they were GOOD PRICES too! But NOTHING for WOMEN! I felt discriminated against. :) In Walmart the smallest men size was a 7 and that was too big for me. I tried on a pair of men's boots in a 6 in Payless Shoe Source, and I could have gotten away with it, but I wasn't crazy about the pair, and I didn't want to settle. What are your suggestions? I'm thinking of just shopping online now, but I wanted to try them on before I purchased them.

Pink Boots
by: Trayce

Hi Jen,

I was in the same situation, I needed boots but refused to pay 200 bucks for Womans Harley Boots. I don't even drive a Harley so I thought it was dumb to wear em...lol So I went to my local work wear store and low and behold, I found a really cute pair of Womans Pink Work Boots for 60 bucks. They are by a company called MOXIE TRADES and they are built for woman, not just mens boots made smaller. They are narrow and really cute, very supportive and great rugged sole. They even have a pocket thingy to tuck your laces into. Now my husband thinks I am adorable, all my bike gear is black...jacket, pants, helmet and HOT PINK work boots. lol Very comfortable and cheap ...hope this helps!

Anything with a lace and a good tread on the bottom.
I wear "River Road" it's a good woman boot, think "Joe Rocket" also carries womens boots. Check with a larger local motorcycle shop in your area (not Harley, anything w/Harley on is twice the price) or see if there is a "Cycle Gear" store close by.

Look for boots than are not lace ups. My first pair were hiking boots which always hung up on the shifter. Not a good experience when learning to ride.

Don't know where you're located, but here in the Midwest, we have Farm & Fleet stores. They have several styles of womens motorcycle & hiking boots at reasonable prices.
