Hello everyone! I’ve decided to do a bit of writing about a boot we’ve got on offer so I’m going to tell you all about the Akito Stealth Motorcycle Boots since I have a little bit of experience with them. I’ll start by outlining the features of the boots but then I’ll also impart a bit of personal knowledge about them on to you so you can be a bit more informed about your potential purchase.
Its made of leather except for the breathing material at the top-front of the foot. This makes the boot sturdy and able to stand up [sorry] to any punishment the wind may throw at them while also keeping it flexible so you don’t have to move your whole leg to shift gears or use the rear brake. Its also fully waterproof with a sort of waterproof sock that is fixed to the interior for effective protection from the wet.
It features shin and ankle protection but the ankle protection also has memory foam behind it for added comfort- a feature I’m glad to discover. I’ve worn a few pairs of boots where such care wasn’t taken around the ankles and mine ended up a little sore. On the back of the boot is more of the textile material that can stretch which is what helps the boot to flex and give your feet a bit more freedom in movement. The gear change panel is made of rubber for grip and the sole of the boot is made of a non-slip, oil and petrol resistant rubber- something I wish they could accomplish better with tyres.
So you’re getting a really good quality boot- and because we’ve got a 40% off deal going on for it, you can get it for as little as £59.99. But let me tell you a little more about it. This boot is a pretty tight fit, especially if you’re someone with broader feet. This boot is definitely more suited to people that have a narrower foot and even they need to size up at least once. I once had a gentleman trying pairs on, he wasn’t a big guy, wore size 9 shoes normally but his feet weren’t of a more narrow shape. So he was going up size after size and gave up after trying on a size 12 that still didn’t fit. So if you want to try on these boots- wear a pair of medium thickness socks and try a size up from what you would usually go for. If you find they’re just a little too narrow at that point- maybe one more size up might do it and you’ll have yourself a really great pair of boots at an equally great price. But if they’re massively too tight, they may simply just not be the boots for you. But we’ll be happy to help you look for alternatives.
Thanks for reading everybody
Until next time!
