Blog Challenge: Girlie Motorcycle Boots and Shoes

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:

Sidis and Chuck Taylors

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…
