Joe Rocket Motorcycle Boots

Joe Rocket has released its latest sport-touring motorcycle boot, the Sonic R. The boots are waterproof and breathable while offering all-leather protection, all at a low price-point of under $130.

How are the Sonic R boots offeres so cheaply, considering the features and all leather construction? Joe Rocket says the main reason for the low price point is how the purchasing is completed, which cuts out an entire level of price "mark-up." Joe Rockets says "That’s exactly how we pass on these aggressive prices to the consumer without sacrificing features and quality."

To further enhance safety, Joe Rocket also added some race-inspired features into the Sonic R, such as an integrated toe slider, internal reinforcements, and a low profile toe-box for when the conditions get extreme.

Regarding construction, the rigid mid-sole is achieved using an injection molded polymeric material. This design provides sole rigidity without relying on a steel shank that would be limited to a center strip along the center of the sole.

The molded polymeric sole, on the other hand, covers the entire sole, making for more stability across a much wider area and in a shape more naturally suited to the riders foot.

Whether going the distance on a sport-touring machine, or just having some fun sport riding, the Joe Rocket Sonic R motorcycle boots offer protection, comfort in various elements and race-inspired styling.
