Searching for some vintage looking motorcycle boots?

Might be interesting at less than 2 bones...not much protection though. Made in Mexico.

I am rocking Chippewa Rally motorcycle boots. They are a bit pricey, but totally look legit! Super comfy once they are broken in. I got mine at Altman's downtown.



Nice feature is the strip of material on the toe so that the shifter doesn't scuff up the boot

The Gasolina boots look like the road racing boots Hailwood and Agostini wore back in the late 60's and 70's...American road racers wore lace up boxing shoes (check out photos of Dick Mann riding the Honda 750 in the 1970 Daytona 200) or everyday work boots until road racing got a bit more sophisticated here in the 70's. Then they started to wear the boots that the Europeans were wearing...Gary Nixon in green Kawasaki leathers and black boots just like those....
Anyway... If you're going for the retro look Red Wing, Carolina and Chippewa still make engineer boots and the venerable Wellingtons are available from several makers and almost all boot makers are still making the Harness boot. Those styles have about 3 decades covered.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
