Adventure motorcycling is unique. It incorporates elements of touring, but it also includes off-road riding. Make sure that if you own an adventure bike, you have gear that’s up for the task. When you’re looking for boots, make sure that you get something that can handle the rigors of adventure motorcycling and offer incredible comfort for those long trips.
First and foremost, don’t neglect safety and protection. Regular footwear – even if it’s “heavy duty” – will not offer you the same protection as purpose-built riding boots. Adventure motorcycle boots offer the impact protection you’d expect for off-road riding along with abrasion resistance you need for the street. However, some boots also offer additional shin protection and ankle support.
Adventure riding frequently incorporates many activities that aren’t riding at all, including everything from short hikes to meandering around a campsite to pleasant visits at local diners. You need to be comfortable walking around in your motorcycle boots. That means that while you still need protection and support, you also need a certain amount of flex.
There are several other features that can be nice, like good enough tread to give you enough traction when handling your bike when you’re not riding it (such as if you need to pick it up). Depending on where your adventures go, you might also want to consider waterproof boots. Several adventure boots are specifically designed to keep water out in all circumstances (even if you’re standing in a stream) while still being breathable.
Of course, everyone’s adventures tend to be a little different, so we’ve assembled a good selection of boots to make sure that you can find something that best fits your needs. Some boots are so geared up for adventure bikes that they include the word adventure right in their name. But we’ve also got other options, like boots which are designed more with the touring aspect in mind, and we’ve got some shorter boots as well if you tend to avoid off-road riding and don’t need ankle support. We also have several trials boots which – although weren’t designed for adventure bikes per se – have been quite popular among some adventure motorcyclists.
We’ve got great prices and industry-leading brands. Check out our selection and pick up your next pair of adventure motorcycle boots today!
RANDON in OR
Boots fit great out of the box. Easy to adjust the buckles after the broke in a little more. Have worn them on about 6 long single tracks rides and are holding up great. Just stiff enough to feel like my ankles won’t buckle if I go down hard. Not a single complaint for the price.Read All Reviews

Purchased after watching video reviews and reading comments. The smaller toe box was the primary reason purchased along with protection. No issues with buckles staying fastened. However, make sure you fully depress the buckles until you hear the click.Read All Reviews

John Indiana in AZ
Fit really well. Easy on/off. A bit warm for southern AZ but tolerable. Had part of buckle on boot break and could only get the ratchet buckle strap replacement. Broke from an obstacle strike, not shoddy workmanship.Read All Reviews
