Hey everyone! Yeah, I’m talking about Agrius stuff again but I’ve not covered a good pair of short boots yet. Its the summer so to not talk about a pair of short, summer, street appropriate boots would practically be committing a crime. So I’m writing this entry to introduce you to the Agrius Lima Motorcycle Boots.
The Agrius Limas share a lot with its siblings in the Agrius range of boots and most of this is down to the materials used and how the boot is constructed. Its made of bonded leather that allows the boots to stay strong and durable but still give room for plenty of flex and freedom. You would have had this anyway with the boot being short, which naturally improves the movement you get around the ankle in comparison to a full boot but knowing your foot isn’t in a stiff cage is still nice.
The Limas also share the same insole as the other boots in the range- a triple density construction that provides a comfortable insole that has a few hidden abilities to help you stay that way. They’re anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and the materials used to make it are moisture wicking which all helps to keep these boots fresher for longer. Also inside the boot is a polyester lining with open cell foam in for a bit more cushion around the foot.
You’ve probably noticed the unique fastening system on the front that looks like a little dial. The Freelock Closure System is really easy to use and its really effective, a turn of the dial clockwise tightens the “laces” with a ratchet like mechanism until the boot is snug on the foot. To release the Freelock System, just turn the dial anti-clockwise just a little bit and pull the sides of the boot to loosen the laces. You’re probably thinking that the laces and Freelock mechanism look a bit weak but looks can be deceiving. I can’t speak for anyone else here at Ghostbikes HQ but I’ve never heard of one coming back for broken mechanisms or laces for as long as I’ve been here.
The sole of the boots are a non-slip rubber that helps to keep a grip on your bike’s pegs and also whatever floor you’re standing on. Which is great for people such as myself who have floors at home that are mostly laminate and get a regular mopping [thanks to having lots of little dogs] and no “wet floor” signs. Speaking of wet- the Agrius Limas, despite being a short boot and great for the summer, are also waterproof. So they’ll see you home with dry feet if you happen to be caught in a turn of the weather.
So what do I make of the boot? At £52.99 I think you’re getting a fantastic short boot. Like with everything I’ve ever worn that is made by Agrius- they’re comfortable, they feel good to wear and they’re great value for money. I think my favourite thing about them has to be how light and easy to wear they are. I’ve never worn a short boot before so the reduction in weight and freedom of ankle movement was a new but very pleasant thing to get used to. I’ll definitely be treating myself to a pair when I can afford it [I’d get them right now but I’m still recovering from purchasing a new bike. I regret nothing!]
Thanks for reading everybody! Until next time!
