Casually Cool with Clae Boots

I’ve been rocking the Clae Strayhorn Vibram boots for about two months now–both on and off the bike–and my dogs have never been happier (unless they’re soaking in my new Jacuzzi, of course). These boots are not your average motorcycle boots or riding boots, but they check the boxes of protection: sturdy Vibram sole, over-the-ankle protection, and rugged leather construction. Score!

When they showed up on my doorstep for testing I was immediately turned on. Not only did I dig the simple and classy chukka style look, I was immediately impressed with the cushioned sole and, to a greater degree, the cushioned tongue. I’m not sure I’ve ever worn boots with a cushioned tongue. It’s very nice, like my feet were sandwiched between a glorious marshmallow sent from Podiatreus (my made-up Greek God of feet). I’ve been wearing them for about two months both on and off the motorcycle and while the tongue cushion has worn in a bit, the rest of the boots have molded very well to my feet. Made with a tumbled leather upper with waxed cotton cord laces, a leather lined upper and footbed for breathability, all resting on a tried-and-true Vibram Christy outsole, the Clae Boots have been a great addition to my boot collection.
