Harley-Davidson Rosa & Tyson Motorcycle Boot Review

The arrival of a new shipment of Harley-Davidson Footwear is always cause for celebration, and the new men’s Tyson and women’s Rosa boots are no exception.

Harley-Davidson Footwear’s Women’s Rosa riding boots are one cool looking pair of mid-calf length harness boots with a little bit of sass. A silhouette of the classic H-D shield logo is enough to announce your allegiance.

Constructed of full grain leather, the look is smooth, clean, and classic. You can roll under the radar when wearing your riding jeans over the boots off your mount. Once seated, the Rosa’s rounded studs on the triple split harness straps peek out, showing off some attitude.

With a turned up toe, there is a slight rocking motion to walking in the narrow fit boot that makes you want to strut your stuff. The rubber outsole has a slip resistant construction, so you can plant your foot with confidence at stops, and the one and three quarter-inch heel allows a secure connection to the pegs.

Sliding into the Rosa is easy with an instep zipper running from top of the boot to bottom, and your feet will appreciate the comfortable full-length cushion sock lining. The toe box is a bit tight, so try these on before falling in love.

Like the Rosa Boots, the Tyson boots use an instep YKK locking zipper to ease foot entry. However, these are not slip-on boots and, thanks to the laces, you can customize the fit and still easily pull them on.

Unfortunately, the laces tend to loosen after a ride or two, and you have to retie them for that personalized fit.

You get a plush interior with the Tyson boots, so even if you are wearing relatively thin socks, your feet will be comfortable. The sizing feels about right for an average foot, and you can wear these boots without issue on long rides.

Nice and sticky at stops, the Tyson’s Vibram rubber sole is confidence inspiring. Even in industrial areas where you find oil and diesel on the road at signals, I was able to plant my foot down securely.

The heel is at just the right height to make heel/toe shifting easy, and the toe box is hard enough for standard shift bikes. The feel isn’t great, as the Tyson boot is about being sturdy.

Harley-Davidson Footwear scores again with boots that are functional and stylish.
