I've been riding to work this week but it's supposed to drop to subzero temperatures this weekend and stay that way for the rest of next week.

It might be time frown.gif

There are others in this thread somewhere. That is the only one I have with it covered in snow though.

Any ideas for simple black leather riding boots? Would something like these offer any kind of protection?

They are steel toe for whatever that's worth.

I assume you're not looking for technical boots. If not, then Gasolina would be your best bet.

Also, RideApart reviewed the Aerostich ones this morning: http://rideapart.com/2013/11/aerostich-combat-touring-boots-review/

I like Chippewa if that's your style. For steel toe, I'm not a big fan, couldn't feel the lever when shifting gear.

This is the year I'm going to make it all the way thru winter!

I think that most years, but it usually turns out I either don't have the gear or don't have the guts. smile.gif I rode to see Thor and that was a mess - pouring rain when I got out, I got home soaked, cold, and had a couple of small slides because the tires couldn't warm up. To really do this properly, I need to go ahead and get a CL450 with knobbies on.

Those Cocorans look good. Seems like they'd be kind of a pain to get on and off though. I want something I can just zip in and out of like a race boot w/o the goofy track only looks (and sole I'm guessing).

Icon Elsinore boots are pretty solid. They offer real protection too.

Gah, too ornate.

I mean if you ride like a maniac, go sidi. If you aren't worried about breaking bones and grafting skin, gasoline is ok.

Hm. Honda's doing some interesting things with the CB1100:



but I'd take even the original in black



One of these along side my black CBR600RR and I'd be set for bikes. Park'em next to a black S2000 too. wink.gif

Sidi's are for narrow feet plus they squeak.  But then again Cool The Kid already broke his foot earlier this year so I dunno if he might risk the Gasolinas.

 

 

Vitesse Vulcan looks good even though it is canvas

My foot break was kind of a freak accident. Someone left a plastic board in the middle of 3rd ave in Harlem and I was riding at night. Fucking sucked

Still, I want protection I can walk around in. Basically if I could have a ~7--9" engineer boot that would protect my feet if shit went hairy I'd be happy.

And now you are out in the sticks.  Ever come around a bend and find a ladder laying across the road or manure all in your lane?  Many potential accidents are freak accidents.  You will never find a single pair of boots that will do it all.  If I were you I would get a great pair of boots and then later on if you feel the need then buy another pair and bump up the off-bike comfort and bump down the level of protection.
