The new Joe Rocket Atomic riding shoes are perfect for the sport rider looking for a lightweight option for the street, with a sporty look, and the snug, precise fit of a buckle closure. These Atomic shoes are available in five different colorways on two different colored chassis. There are three colorways on white, including this white and red, and two colorways on black. The fit is roomy, but precise, thanks to the adjustable buckle on the instep and the Velcro strap across the ankle. The chassis is made of split leather, and while split leather will not have quite the longevity of a full or top grain leather material, the quality of the material is still very high, and all the stressed seams are double stitched. These shoes aren’t stiff or plastic feeling at all, and the choice of materials allows this boot to have all the rest of the features I’m about to show you, and still stay under a hundred and twenty bucks.
The name of the game with these Atomics is feel. Everything about this boot is designed to promote good feel of the bikes controls. The toebox is low profile, and protected by a grippy shifter pad. While we’re looking at it, the outside of the foot is protected by a removable and replaceable vinyl toe slider. The soles of these shoes are unusual feeling, but I like them. They feature what Joe Rocket calls their Peg Friendly sole sculpture, which basically gives you a balanced feel no matter where your foot is on the peg. They also have a feature here on the sole that gives the shoe excellent grip against the shifter and brake pedals.
These Atomic shoes are also very comfortable. If you open the boot up, you can see the extensive padding throughout the tongue and ankle areas. There is no armor to protect the ankle areas, but the extensive padding will at least help some at street speeds. The insole is also fairly thick, making it excellent at absorbing shock, and the rear of the shoe has three reflectives across the heel, increasing your visibility in low light conditions.
All in all, the new Joe Rocket Atomic shoe is a fantastic option for the sport street rider looking for advanced riding shoe tech in a relatively low cost option.
