Re: Riding boots
The cruiserworks boots are very good boots. I have a pair of the lace ups. Wouldn't even consider the engineer style pull ons. They are a good, everyday boot and they are completely waterproof. They're not fancy, have no bells and whistles.
Several police motor officers wear them in NC. Namely, the Charlotte- Mecklenburg Police, The NC State Highway patrol. I should know, I got them approved for us when I was on the CMPD Motor Unit along with Police Aerostich Roadcrafters. Another great all around boot, the Aerostich Combat Lite.
IMHO, motorcycle boots should have some sort of lacing system. I don't like pull on style boots..One of our officers, while wearing the old, traditional, horse riding boots had his boot rolled down and jerked off his foot in a sliding type crash. Not much protection if it won't stay on your foot.............
The only thing I did when I first bought them was to replace the insole with a pair of "superfeet" insoles. In fact, I took them with me to try on the boots to get the size right. All I do is clean them from time to time and about once or twice per year, I'll rub on some of the cruiserworks conditioner/polish on them. If it matters, the cruiserworks are made in Canada, soooo not China !
