PostSubject: Biker boots - which for classic look   Tue Oct 16, 2012 12:03 am

Hi,

I've been looking around, trying to find some good looking boots but I'm not exactly spoilt for choice.

So far, these are the contenders:

NewRock 7604


NewRock MR005


Demonia Riot 12


Demonia Disorder 303


Demonia Attack 10 (altohugh a bit short)


Demonia Gravel 14



Strangely, these types of boots are only found in punk/goth shops..
I really don't want any cowboy slip ons..I tried them and they suck.
As in examples above, they need to either have laces or buckles to allow for tight fit.

Do you know any other brands that do calf high biker boots in similar style?

Many thanks in advance.

Marcin

Hmmm they all look a bit gay/poser to me, far to much going on with them but would possibly look ok with combats?

Ouch.

Well since I wear an open face helmet with aviator googles, I guess that's already gay/poser so I might as well go for such boots to complete the look.
Just to make sure nobody has any doubts :)

I wear the gay cowboy slip-on type with a single zip on the inside, and they were rock solid for years until the sole split from overuse. (I tended to wear them casually after I had got off the bike). Probably would have lasted even longer had they not been cheap ones. I got them for £70 off eBay so I cant complain as they did last nearly four years of constant wear.

I wore these for a while after but had to return them because one of the straps broke due to a manufacturing defect. They seemed ok otherwise but this may explain why they are on discounted sale price now.

I always thought these looked good but they were a little out of my price range at the time and they may not be tall enough for what you are looking for. I have a few bits of HELD gear though and its all been good quality stuff.

When I wore cruiser boots my leather jeans were always riding up over the top and annoyed me a lot. Getting tall ones is a must I would think - unless you tuck them in of course (?!)... these are a cheapo option. I always go for cheapo incase I don't like them anyway!

I have always worn the type of leathers that go on the inside of the boot. If you have nice boots on, you gotta show 'em off

I've got a pair of those two pairs actually coz I bought size 45 first (long story) I'm gonna stick them on Ebay for £50 when I get round to it, to stop your pants blowing up you need some jodhpur clips for horse riders (cheaper than biker ones) they're like mini braces and go under your boot to keep pants from blowing up.

I'm a bit jealous of all you village people wannabes really, my little fat legs would make me look like a pair of boots with a head sticking out of the top if I wore that style

Glad you mentioned the issue with these though Joe, as I was thinking of ordering some as they don't go to high up my little stubbies.
Marcin's well timed thread has saved me a crap buy it would seem, thankfully.

I personally like those very high lace up Doc Martins (skinhead boots) My old cruiser boots are relegated to doing Tesco shopping now I don't have a cruiser . The main problem with trousers riding above the boots is if the rim is too wide. At least the Docs are tight to the leg. Good for kicking Harleys over too!

NewRocks are very comfortable and I'm getting a lot of positive feedback. I tried a random pair just to get the feel for size as sometimes there are discrepancies and 10 feels like 11 etc.
They're actually spot on. I picked eu44 (our 10) and they were perfect.

The 7604 will be most likely my purchase as Badger pointed out, you can get them for around 100 quid.

I'd love to have a look at army boots but not sure where to look and which are good.

I was looking at Highway No1's so thanks a lot Bunso for the review. They're off the list.

Suggest 'hiking boots' by ECCO. Very comfortable, waterproof, lace up fronts, cover the ankles, and I don't look like I'm following the crowd when wearing them (I like to think I can think for myself). Comfortable for all day walking on pavements too. Cost about £80.00 Available from most good shoe shops.




Tried to do a photo.(That's it, above) Bloody technology's beyond me

Hope I don't regret this but I took delivery of these today.
I was chatting to a mate at work after Joe said he had an issue with them and my mate has had his for about 8 months and he wears them everyday on his bike getting to and from work without issue.
So I thought sod it because they are so cheap and they are Getgeared's biggest seller I would take a chance.
Fingers crossed that I don't end up regretting this but I thought I would take a chance as they are very good with their returns.

Dave,
When you take delivery it would be great to see a photo.

I wonder how far up the calf they go.
The price is really tempting.

I returned mine after about 2 months absolutely no problems and no questions asked. The stiching on one of the velcro straps at the back just ripped out when I was tightening it one day, so it was most likely just faulty stiching on that strap. Aside from this they were nice boots and a great price.

Cheers Dave,

Much appreciated.

How are they? comfy? can you tighten them up enough so they don't feel loose? (around instep area especially)

Very comfy on bike as well as walking, tightens up very well at all points. Very pleased with them at present, however because Joe had an issue I will keep the receipt just in case. Getgeared have a very good returns policy so it might be worth buying them, trying them & returning them if not happy.

How true
I was speaking to a guy last night up in Coleville about bikes and he said he had often thought about passing his bike test but just never seemed to get around to it. I spent the next hour talking bikes and trying desperately without really realising it, to push him on in to passing his test.
Have we got a screw loose? No we are just passionate about our love of biking. When you love something as much as we do, you can't stop yourself from trying to helping others to see the light that illuminates your life.

I can relate to that. Sadly no one seems to be interested in bikes apart from one person that's expecting twins and simply can't afford it.
Few got superbikes but they're hardly passionate about it. No clue why.

Possibly that's the reason I can't wait for events/meetings. Finally Ill be around people that appreciate the bike, the biker and the stupid amount of hours put in to make it look perfect.
