As I entered my second year riding Harley-Davidsons, I decided it was time to get a pair of H-D boots that I could wear while riding to work, hitting the clubs, or performing at my latest gig. (I sing and play guitar with a band.) A look through H-D’s footwear catalog gave me lots of options, but I finally picked the Dipstick (#D91610/$112). I chose this one because it has the versatility I need for my daily routine.
I kicked it pretty hard with the Dipsticks from the first day, and I can honestly say they’ve held up well. The Dipsticks have full-grain leather uppers and full-length, cushion-sock linings. The collar is padded, and there’s a breathable lining, both of which add to the boot’s comfort. The rings for the laces are even stainless steel so they won’t rust up. Plus, the protective Harley-Davidson emblem helps to keep your laces in line while keeping your foot where it should be while shifting. Other features include a Goodyear welt construction and an oil-, slip-, and abrasion-resistant rubber outsole. (Falling on my bike or my butt is not cool.) Available in black and brown, with or without a steel toe, the Dipsticks have held up to whatever I’ve put them through.
That is, except for rain. Though they won’t rust or slip in the wet, these boots are not waterproof! AIM
