The motorcycle boot must provide protection in dangerous situations on the road and it must also provide protection against the weather. You also wear racing boots on the track. Very important are the protection and the other performance properties. For example, winter motorcycle boots have a lining that insulates heat. In summer boots ventilation is very important.
