The new Spidi X-Village Boots are protective motorcycle boots with a water-repellent 1.4mm thick, oiled leather upper, a padded collar, and shifter pads on the forefoot.
Spidi use a YKK zipper, oiled shoelaces with metallic aglets, a breathable leather insole combined with EVA comfort padding, reinforced support on tip and heel in composite material, a vulcanized rubber sole, and a polyurethane malleolus protector combined with shock absorber material.
