Types of boots in the video above:
Boots in this category are available in both waterproof and non-waterproof, although the waterproofing will only work if you have good waterproof pants on that will not allow any water to come in over the top of the low top boots. For hot weather, several boots in this category are very well vented. The main advantage to this style of motorcycle boots is they are quick and easy to put on, and most of them are very comfortable off the bike as well. These are a great way to stay comfortable on more casual rides around town, or even commuting. While they certainly have more protection that regular shoes, they aren’t quite as protective as a full motorcycle boot. Lack of ankle support and shin protection are their main shortcomings.

First impression? Mad Max Boots! Rugged, tough and designed with an almost futuristic look, the Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots will stand their ground, no matter what you put them through on your riding adventures.
Ladies if you are looking for a sporty styled riding boot that is shorter and offers protection, then take a look at the TCX X-Square Womens Boots. These cute boots have been made similar to the mens version but TCX made sure to design them specifically for a ladies foot, taking into consideration a lower toe box, a more narrow heel and a higher arch.
