How to Style Biker Boots

How to Style Biker Boots
Originally designed for motorcyclists for practicality and comfort to wear with leathers, biker boots are a versatile fashion must-have that we’ve now fallen in love with and simply cannot live without.

What is a “biker boot”?

A biker boot, as mentioned, is a boot originally designed for motorcyclists. For practicality’s sake they’re generally above the ankle to avoid any exposed skin but below mid-calf height to allow leathers to be tucked in or worn over, ensuring weatherproofing. They’re traditionally made from leather (although quality faux leathers are making an appearance for the fashion conscious who don’t want to consume animal products) and come with a grippy, chunky profiled soles.

The chunky heel and edge of sole profile makes for a distinctive style that can be embraced across different fashion styles and works as well with jeans or dresses, with casual clothes, biker bite or bohemian flair, leading to the ultimate versatility that we’ve come to love!

Floral patterns are equally well suited to bright colours like those available with Bayeux or deep brown leathers like those on Reef, a rugged style from our Autumn Winter 2022 range. Fully adjustable laces mean you can loosen the fit to tuck in jeans, leggings or jeggings - or just for preference – or wear close-fitting to the leg for a neat, slim look.

All styles listed are available in our wide 2V(EE-4E) and extra wide 6V(6E-8E) variable width fittings, making them perfect for even the widest of fashion conscious feet.

The variable fittings include cleverly designed insoles that can be removed from the boot to create extra room inside the boot or for the insertion of orthotics or other specialist insoles.
