They are usually settled on the ordinary protection they are getting from rubber shoes, sneakers and the likes. But this should not be the case. Our feet need equal protection as any part of our body. Thus, we need to use the right apparel that will sure give comfort and protection to our feet.

Article wasnt that imformative, but I still liked it. Alot of bikers dont wear boots. I would of lost my toes in my wreck if I had not been wearing my steel-toe boots. My recomendation is to get a pair of steel toe construction boots for a bike. They are tough, protect your feet, have non-slip soles, and are alot cheaper then most specific motorcycle boots.
