Word, boots are an essential part of riding. I have two pairs of Harley Davidson boots, an ankle high with big cleats and quick lace and a pair of high tops with the eagle embroidery on the front. I’ve about worn them out and honestly have not been impressed with either pair. The high tops have icy slick bottoms and the ankle highs have had the quick lace hooks pull out. I ride a lot with my Doc Martens. Good looks, last forever and the bottoms stick to pavement like a monkey with superglue. I’ve seen the new Ariat boot with the foot peg grip on the bottom and am considering them or a new pair of Doc Marten mid height boots. Anyone out there try the new Ariat and how they grip pavement or suggestions on perhaps a boot that feel is the cat’s meow ? So far my 130 bucks on the Martens.
