|My 2 favorite pair of shoes.|
We motorcyclists are an eclectic if not eccentric group. We all have our favorite motorcycle boots and gear. On the flip side of this is our other favorite footwear. Bobskoot loves his pink crocs and is often seen with free ranging toes. Other moto bloggers have shown off their fancy foot work on their blogs from time to time. I love summer and wearing pretty girly shoes and I really am a shoe horse when it comes down to it. I loved the 80's and the spiky high stiletto heels that were the rage when I was young. Most days though finds me in my lovely motorcycle boots, which are great for riding, but quite honestly suck in summer because they are pretty hot. On my way home today I saw a girl riding a white CBR which normally is awesome, but I was disappointed because she was wearing dress clothes and lovely feminine dress shoes - great for the office, but not for the bike.
I know I sound like a broken record and harp about squidly riders, but honestly do you really want to take a chance losing a toe or foot? For those who make the choice to ride squid go try some mesh gear, seriously it is comfortable and you are getting some protection. Road rash hurts and Brittany Morrow aka Road Rash Queen can attest to how bad it hurts and how much you have to lose riding without gear. Check out her site www.rockthegear.org.
