ADV/Dual Sport Motorcycle Boot Buyers Guide

Adventure Motorcycle Boots

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!

    Ludwig in UT

    Great boot! ...but way smaller than my Tech 7's

    Worn Alpinestars boots for years, always wear a Sz-9 including the Tech 7's I'm wearing now. Gave these a try for the enduro situations, but low-and-behold, they're so small I had to curl my toes. Order a size up and you'll be golden.

    Super Comfortable Right out of Box!

    I had ordered Fox Racing Instinct Boots and sent them back, like wearing casts on my legs. The Forma boots are exactly what I was looking for. Super comfortable with good protection for my feet. I ride for pleasure in technical and desert areas. You wont be sorry if you choose these boots.

    Harry in AZ

    Alpinestars; never got a bad one.

    When you stuff your heavy-socked foot into the boot, stuff the pants leg or whatever in, adjust the buckles and click them in; Ahhh... Alpinestars. How do they make THIS boot fit like the first one I got in '81? Dunno, but I like it!
