Nobody should debate the importance of good footgear, especially if you are riding a motorcycle. BMW Boots are CE-approved and designed to both protect and keep your feet dry. The boots are made of a combination of leather and Cordura, using a Gore-Tex membrane that ensures waterproofness. BMW’s boots are constructed from 100 percent full-grain cowhide and given a hydrophobic treatment, which forces rain to bead up and roll off. Gore-Tex, the original, waterproof, breathable membrane is still the winning combo of climate control lining on the inside and the tough leather exterior. The soles are oil and fuel resistant, and they’re superbly abrasion defiant.
