Your first thought might be what do zero-drop boots have to do with motorcycles? Honestly, if you aren’t a fan of zero drop shoes, the irony will be lost to you. Barefoot enthusiasts understand the feeling of “comfortable” shoes and wouldn’t mind trying one on when riding a bike.
Besides having minimalist features – zero-drop sole, wide toe box, thin and flexible sole – there are other things to consider when choosing a barefoot biker boot.
Riding a motorcycle requires sturdy boots. But at the same time, you need them soft enough to not give your feet blisters. Hence, the sole has to be as flexible as can be.
Below are some of the best zero-drop motorcycle boots to try:
