Leather Motorcycle Boots - Ariat?
(Vancouver Island, Canada)
Years back, I fractured my heal in a horse riding accident and I can only walk without a limp in good footware, usually Ariat boots.
I was amazed to find that Ariat made motorcycle boots and I did order a pair.
I am going to be starting my motorcycle training course on Monday and at the introduction evening, it was presented that Harley Davidson type riding boots are too bulky and heavy and that riders will have trouble shifting gears, feeling the brakes or even being able to get the large square type toe under the shift mechanisms.
I worried about my Ariat boots, as they do look very much like the Harley Davidson boot.
I just can't wear soft flexible motorcycle boots that seem the preferred. There isn't enough support in the boots to actually help me walk or put my foot down if needed.
Any advise from ladies would be great. I purchased the Latidude Ariat boot which is taller than the Ariat Dynamit boot that is featured on the right hand side of this page.
I am excited about the course, nervous and apprehensive too.
Warm regards to all,
