‘Them Boots Were Made for Riding’

By Leah Misch:    Photos compliments of S&S cycle.

leahAfter literally wearing a hole through my last pair of riding boots, I decided to check out Harley-Davidson Footwear’s Performance Line for a durable riding boot with a feminine edge.
My focus as a motorcyclist laying down some serious miles across the United States is safety. I remember seeing a cute pair of Jana boots in the H-D Footwear catalog listed as ‘performance boots.’
I thought, wait, shouldn’t it be listed as ‘lifestyle boot?’ They’re too cute to be listed as actual riding boots in their Performance Line and not just for casual wear.
I wanted to make sure these fashionable ‘performance’ boots would be safe to wear for riding; so, I called H-D Footwear’s customer service line. I asked about this infamous slip-resistant rubber outsole with Goodyear welt construction and based on what I learned I decided to give them a try.
Honestly, I was still skeptical wondering about the mechanics behind a rubber grip shoe offering ‘maximum grip’ until I actually experienced the Goodyear welt construction sole. They are tough enough to hold up in rain yet still comfortable to walk around in at rallies after a long day of riding. Not only that, but they were cute with a little bit of a sexy heel that bring a fun rhythm of respect, turning the heads of motorcyclists I encountered on the road. image2
Function and fashion…. Finally, what I was looking for! I loved my Jana boots so much that I opted to try out another pair from H-D Footwear. The ‘Heights’ offered the same slip resistant outsole with Goodyear welt construction with a little bit of a heel, but were more forgiving in the summer heat.

I’m on a mission to see if I can wear a hole through either of these functional and fashionable riding boots, but so far they are holding out strong! See the entire line at harley-davidsonfootwear.com.

WHY SHEEPSKIN? Royal Riding Combines Hi-Tech With Classic Sheepskin Cover

Santa Ana, CA — If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Sheepskin seat covers are a prime example: they are soft, comfortable and add a level of cushion that some seats need… desperately. Royal Riding has combined the advantages of an old-school sheepskin with a hi-tech gel and contour cushion foam combination for an upgrade to the classic seat pad. “There are a number of advantages to genuine sheepskin wool,” explains Royal Riding’s Rod Derifield. “The hollow fibers are both breathable and a natural insulator to keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Sheepskin is also able to absorb sweat seven times faster than synthetic fibers, while the lanolin found in wool is both water-resistant and an emollient moisturizer because it has a similar composition to human skin.” In addition to the comfort factors, sheepskin seat covers can protect seats from UV/sun damage and normal wear and tear issues. Wool is dirt and bacteria resistant. “It is even self-cleaning — just rinse it out and hang a sheepskin cover up to dry,” noted Derifield. Royal Riding has improved on all these excellent natural properties by upgrading the cover with combination gel and contour cushioning foam inserts inside the sheepskin cover. “It really is the best of both worlds,” he adds. “By combining the natural advantages of wool with gel’s superior vibration elimination, our goal is to allow people to ride farther with less pain for longer!”
Royal Riding Genuine Sheepskin Motorcycle Gel Seat Pads are available in six options — touring with tailbone relief, extra large, large with tailbone relief, large, medium and small — prices range from $59.99 to $129.99. Replacement sheepskins (no gel) are also available.

Feet So Happy You’ll Wanna Dance!

H-D Footwear has bikers covered in all situations with boots and shoes that boldly represent a riding life. But as the riding season revs up across the country, we’re all about practicality and comfort. That means turning to H-D Footwear’s Performance Line, a group of riding boots for men and women that address the demands of riders by focusing on durability and safety.

The new Parkwood for men combines lightweight materials, including breathable mesh, with cement construction and a slip-resistant rubber outsole that defends against oil and abrasion. It’s a classic six-inch lace up that provides ankle protection plus flexibility.

The pragmatic Berkner for women is a low-cut black leather boot with a 1.5” heel, mesh lining and cushioned top. But is doesn’t skim on style, featuring abrasion-resistant overlays, silver-tone details and copious H-D branding—plus solid, Goodyear welt construction.

Any boot feels better with comfortable socks and H-D Footwear has a selection of them, including CoolMax designs with details that make a difference—such as moisture-wicking technology and cushioning. It’s a fact: happy feet make the ride better!
