These are the popular Legacy Boots from the Italian company Forma, they’ve become a common sight on the feet of people in the vintage and modern classic motorcycle world thanks to their combination of tough construction, classic styling, and built-in foot protection.
It wasn’t that long ago that there were almost no motorcycle boots available that offered vintage styling with modern protection. In recent years the number of choices has exploded along with the proliferation of modern classic motorcycles from companies like Triumph, Ducati, BMW, Moto Guzzi, Norton, and Indian.
Each pair of Forma Legacy Boots feature a full grain oiled leather upper with a Drytex® waterproof, internal PU ankle protection, and CE® safety certification.
The boots have an anti-slip Urban rubber sole, with an anti-shock EVA mid-sole, and a anti-bacterial replaceable footbed with A.P.S. (Air Pump System).
They also have a padded collar for comfort and an easy rear pull loop, they use laces for the main closure however there’s a YKK zipper on the side offering quick entry and exit without having to do the laces each time.
A rear reflective insert helps with visibility and inside the boots you’ll find soft padding with memory foam to ensure all day comfort.
Unlike many motorcycle boots these are designed to be comfortable for use both on the bike and off, meaning you can walk about in them without hobbling or getting sore feet.
You can choose from either brown or black colorways, and sizing ranges from 36 to 48 EU with a sizing conversion chart to ensure you get the right fit.
