Blog Challenge: Girlie Motorcycle Boots and Shoes
My girl Dar over at Princess Scooterpie threw down the blog challenge gauntlet yesterday. The request:
Post a picture of your favorite non-motorcycle/scooter shoes & one of your motorcycle/scooter boots/shoes.
For many women this is like saying “Post a picture of your favorite child!” And like children, if you have only one maybe that would be easy. But if you’ve got like over a 100 different ones to choose from… eh, no so much.
That’s 100 different pairs of shoes, not children. If it were children you should seriously invest in a tv or a motorcycle or something else to do with your time. And also your uterus would probably fall out.
It was impossible for me zero in and pick a single favorite pair of shoes. I really don’t have one. So – instead I opted to pick my favorite brand of sneakers. The beautifully classic - Converse Chuck Taylor.
My shagged out Sidi Vertigos and my 3 pairs of Chucks:
The white Chucks were the shoes I got married in back in May.
Being that weddings are a time of happiness, it seemed like being too serious would be a travesty. Instead we 3, The Fuzzmops as our little family is called, opted for some custom Chucks featuring our name and the date of the wedding embroidered on ‘em – 051212.
I guess you could say I am brand loyal when it comes to shoes and motorcycle boots. Love my Converse and of course love my Sidis. When it came to buying my dirt boots I went right back to my go-to brand and opted for the Crossfires. A choice I have been extremely satisfied with.
I still contend that they’re the sexiest motorcycle boots in the world
My Vertigo Rain street boots are on their last legs. The soles are nearly walked off and paper thin, the heels are little more than just a suggestion and the toes are ground out a bit. What was once water resistant is no longer.
I’ve been hemming and hawing over biting the bullet and getting a pair of GORE-TEX Sidi Adventure boots to replace the Vertigos. They look like they’d give me a wee lift that I could really use on the Tiger and keep my piggies dry to boot. See what I did there?
Maybe I’ll order those today…
