You want protection, style, and you want it all for a fair price.

Here are some of our favorite motorcycle boots that'll have you covered without emptying out your wallet:

Some guys prefer the look and feel of lower cut boots, and to cater to that demand, Highway 21 is now offering their Primary Engineer boots in a low cut version. This boot measures just a tad shorter than the regular fit, but still keeps the same quality features intact. The water-resistant, 100% top shelf leather and Goodyear welt construction (which can be re-soled) make these instant classics based on looks and build alone. A full-length, waterproof cushioned sock lining allows these boots to feel easy on the feet all day long.

The full grain leather construction is backed with a waterproof membrane to keep water out, and malleolus toe and heel reinforcements help protect from road hazards no matter the conditions. These offer an alternative styling solution to "regular" looking riding boots, yet feature all the same functions that riders come to depend on from their protective riding shoe of choice.
