Motorcycle Boots - A Bold Choice!

Motorcycle boots, also known as bike boots for men, are typically made of full-grain leather material (given they need to be highly durable and sturdy).

You can easily slip into these motorbike boots without the hassle of tying laces to hit the city streets. Even though every footwear has its own appeal, there are no other shoes that can replace the rugged biker boots. 

What is the History of Motorcycle Boots?

What we now know as motorcycle boots were originally made for the firemen, to protect them from danger and give them comfortable mobility. They were known as ‘Engineer Boots’ in the 1940s. They had two harness-like metal buckles at the ankle and knee shaft for adjustments. 

The footwear for motorcycle riders were also once interchangeable with the ‘Harness Boots’ which were invented back in the 1830s.  

Motorcycle shoes for men eventually became popular in the 1950s and 60s due to the rise of the motorcycle culture. They were used as the ultimate shoes to ride a motorcycle. It also has earned its name as the sport bike boots. MC boots bring a much needed diversification to your wardrobe as they are different from classic shoes like men’s loafers or Oxford shoes.

At Leather Skin Shop you can also order custom boots that can have laces, zippers, or buckles. Other than the motorcycle boots, we also have unlimited design options for custom loafers and custom Oxford shoes.
