If you're as much a motorcycle buff as your favourite American actor, the Racing Carrera boots, made by Italian company OMP, are a must. Vintage and high quality, these boots pay tribute to the legendary Steve McQueen.
These high-cut boots are designed using the latest technologies; no less can be expected from the same company that manufactures safety components for racing cars and dresses several F1 drivers. Synonymous with comfort, the interior lining is made of Nomex, a self-extinguishing, thermostable fibre. Moreover, these boots have been certified by the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
Made of very flexible premium treated Italian leather, they are among the few motorcycle accessories that are manufactured by hand, just like in the good old days. Available in two colours for about $320, the boots also feature the celebrated rubber sole, known for high sensitivity and resistance to hydrocarbons.
