The Alpinestars Oscar Rayburn Boots are among the best dual purpose motorcycle boots on the market, they look almost entirely like normal street wear but pack toe, heel, and ankle reinforcements within full grain leather chassis – and they carry Category 2 CE safety certification (to the 89/686/ecc EU directive).

Each pair of Oscar Rayburns has a padded soft leather collar for all-day comfort and a heel pull tab to make getting them on nice and easy. They also have a gusseted tongue to keep out wind, water, and dirt a traditional metal eyelet lacing systems and a 3D mesh lining for high levels of breathability.

Alpinestars Oscar Rayburn Boots Sole

For safety there are double-density TPU ankle protector disks on both sides of the leg, they’re fixed in place under the leather upper and backed with a soft poly-foam padding. The toe box and heel protector offer internal reinforcement to give impact resistance and protect the foot in the case of a accident, there’s also a replaceable anatomical EVA footbed, and Alpinestars’ exclusive vulcanized rubber compound sole.

When you’re not on your bike the Oscar Rayburns offer excellent daily wearability, they’re far more comfortable than typical motorcycle boots and they won’t leave you hobbling around town. Alpinestars offer the boot in sizes from 6 to 14, and the only colorway on offer is a medium tan with a white sole.
