The Revit Taylor Riding Shoes are going to be offering a lot at a great price, which we find is often the case with Revit. These shoes answered the call for a casual sneaker with solid protection. The Revit Taylors are coming in at about 160 Euros, or about 180 US Dollars. This means that they’ll be competing with the Dainese York D-WP and the Dainese Street Darker Gore-Tex motorcycle riding shoes. However they will be coming with much more protection than these Dainese sneakers which is definitely a key advantage of these shoes over Dainese.
Revit have made this sneaker using a variety of high-quality materials. The collar, heel, front of the toe, and the area around the laces are made of full grain soft cowhide leather to give you not only strong abrasion resistance but it’ll also make sure the shoes don’t rip. Following behind the suede in the toe and side of the shoe you’ve got leather suede, which will also give some abrasion resistance as well as a good level of grip. Lastly, the rest of the shoe along the sides and the tongue is made of ventilating Dynax mesh.
Dynax mesh is made of special polyamide yarns which will give tear and abrasion resistance without compromising on strong ventilation throughout the shoe. Making them a very decent Motorcycle Riding Shoes.
For protection, the Rev’It Taylor Shoes also don’t skimp out, especially in the heel and toe areas with a cap while the ankle cup also keeps you covered. Starting at the toe, the toe area houses a thermoformed cap. In the heel you have another thermoformed plastic reinforcement to keep your foot protected and in the correct place when wearing the shoes. The fact that Revit have gone with thermoformed reinforcements is also great because it means it will have a more defined shape within the shoe and you shouldn’t feel it while wearing them. Lastly, to cover your ankle, the ankle received an injected ankle cap on both sides.
The Revit Taylor Motorcycle Shoes also won’t let you down for comfort though this does come with a couple caveats. While the shoe does well for ventilation, it is still partially made of leather so it will take a little more time before it will fully break in. In terms of lacing, Revit have added a gusseted tongue to more effectively keep the elements out. And once you move up the shoe, you have two additional holes at the ankle in case you prefer your shoes laced up higher.
The last thing to mention with these shoes is the definitely run narrower, so that is something to be aware of, but they should still be comfortable thanks to the anatomically shaped foot bed the Taylor shoes also feature.
While these shoes do run into fitment issues, this is a fairly standard issue that you see not only with motorcycle shoes but even with normal sneakers. So these shoes do plenty in meeting the needs of a true motorcycle shoe, offering the comfort and protection one would expect, while still allowing you to feel like a casual sneaker when walking. Other than that, these are solid shoes and will cover you as well as any pair of riding sneakers can.
