These Coaster Waterproof
motorcycle riding boots from TourMaster are one of the highest quality and
best fitting examples of a classically styled cruising boot you’ll find, and at
about two thirds of the price of much of the competition. These are going to
work great with a classic leather jacket like the
Detour Roundabout and a
pair of chaps like the LC001’s.
These boots are made of top grain water resistant cowhide leather and feature a
waterproof yet breathable Hypora membrane. This means that your feet are going
to stay dry, but the membrane will allow sweat vapor to pass through, so your
feet stay cool and comfortable. This boot has a unique combination lace-up and
side zip closure system, which is great for a taller boot with laces because you
don’t have to partially unlace them or fumble with those annoying hooks to get
them on and off. You have the adjustability, though, and precise fit, that you
can’t get without the lace system. The lace-hole grommets are designed to look
like small nuts, and if you unzip the side closure, you’ll see the waterproof
gaiter that makes sure that water stays out.
Foot protection is excellent for a cruiser boot, and comes from a heavily
reinforced Techno Gl heel cup and toebox, and nylon reinforcements in the ankle.
The sole of the Coaster is also very well done. The outsole is constructed of an
oil and slip resistant vulcanized rubber, and the Texxon midsole is shock
absorbing, with a steel shank for rigidity.
TourMaster is using
their triple density Polyflex insole that is removable and replaceable. It is
also antibacterial, anti-fungal, moisture wicking and fast drying.
If you look inside the boot, you can see the soft polyester lining that hides
the waterproof Hypora membrane.
All in all, the TourMaster Coaster waterproof
motorcycle riding boot is
an excellent choice for the cruising rider looking for a highly functional,
classically styled boot at an excellent price.
