Finding a good pair of riding boots can be quite difficult for those who love adventuring on two wheels but every now and then you’ll come across a pair that ticks all your boxes. Well, that day may be today in the shape of these superb looking Aether Moto Boots which are the first piece of footwear from this technical apparel brand and, if you love climbing aboard your motorbike, you’ll want to sit up and take notice of what these boots have to offer.
The Aether Moto Boot is available for $595 but the quality is excellent and the style beyond compare, not to mention the fact these boots are mighty hard-wearing and you’ll be sporting them for many years to come, so it represents money well spent in our opinion here at Coolector HQ. These cracking riding boots from Aether are available in either a black or brown colour way and come with a bold and vibrant set of laces that will help these boots stand out from the crowd still further.
Made For Moto Adventure
Similarly to all the motorcycle inspired offerings from Aether, they made sure these boots featured the necessary protection to keep you safe while still maintaining a refined urban aesthetic. Much of the moto industry tends to opt for loud and logo’d gear, but Aether are firm believers in keeping their protective gear devoid of crazy colours and excessive branding and that’s certainly an aesthetic that we can get on board with here at The Coolector.
The Aether Moto Boot ($595) is crafted from 100% vegetable-tanned Italian leather (with the black colourway featuring a textured leather) and they are fully leather lined. They have internal D3O® ankle-protection pads for impact protection out on the road. These breathtaking boots boast a Vibram “Commando” style sole which has low-profile forefoot lugs, alongside a reinforced-leather shift-pad area on the vamp to prevent early wear-through from shifting.
Made with with function in mind, Aether have placed speed hooks at the top of the boot to help with quick lacing, and a finger-pull is stitched on the back for ease of putting them on and taking them off. The midfoot arch of the Vibram outsole is buttressed by the heel pad, which acts as a natural area for foot pegs. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more comfortable pair of riding boots on the market than these excellent ones from the guys at Aether.
Ride in Style
The boot’s shaft construction allows for easy flexing for shifting or walking and this sort of versatile performance is essential for a boot of this nature. They come with a heavy waxed-nylon blue thread which is Blake-stitched through the Vibram sole, and does a great job of adding a pop of colour to proceedings. The Aether Moto Boot will develop a deep patina with time and wear that will be unique to you and the adventures you have been on.
With a $595 price, these Aether Moto Boots are by no means cheap but if you want to push the boat out for your next purchase and want a pair that looks great and will last for years to come then look no further. This first class footwear is made in Portugal and thoughtfully constructed for motorcycle rides but sophisticated enough to leave on throughout the day. They’re motorcycle boots appropriate for any setting. Win, win.
