Do the DBs cover your ankles? I'm taking a motorcycle riding class and they require a pair of boots that cover your ankles.
More importantly, would any rider recommend these boots for riding?
Heck no on both.
I work in a casual office and wear them a couple days a week to give my other 2 pairs of boots a rest (Redwing 2970s and Iron Rangers, both excellent riding boots) but I wouldn't recommend DBs for riding at all.
They're not safe if you go down, you'll burn your ankles unless you really pay attention, if you wear the beeswax versions they scuff easily, your left big toe area will get really worn out from the clutch and the left heel from the kickstand, the soles wear out VERY quickly unless you are very careful about not scuffing them.
