I purchased a pair of Speed & Strenth (Run with the Bulls 2.0 ) riding shoes a few months back and I absolutely love them. If your looking for something comfortable to wear riding and want something other than a boot.......I would highly suggest picking up a pair. ridersdepot_usa on eBay

I bought a pair of the SOS Moment of Truth shoes initially and didn't like how bulky they felt around my foot & I sent them back. I looked at the ones you have as well before I made my choice on the Moment shoes. I ended up buying the Astars S-MX 1 boots in red. Those things are great all around. Very good boot and recommend them if you need a second pair of shoes.

No break in needed......You could ride your bike somewhere and walk around in them all day. It's no running shoe but it feels like a Nike basketball shoe on steroids.....

Hmmm... I'm not feeling many of the motorcycle shoes. Too big and bulky... Not a fan of boots either, yucky. I suppose they serve the purpose though.

Still on the look out...

Well the riding shoes I bought look good,offer a lot of protection and are super light and comfortable like a tennis shoe. Flip flops or sandles just don't work for me rididng.

I'm not a fan of the ankle high shoes, as they do not offer the same level of protection that motorcycle boots will.

These Alpinestars S-MX 5 vented boots are what I wear for road riding...







These are my off-road riding boots, also made by Alpinestars. They are the Tech 3 All Terrain model...

Again.....If your looking for a riding shoe that you can stop and walk around all day in comfort......The Speed & Srength Run with the Bulls shoe is a great compromise without walking around like a wanna be racer.

Depends on what kind of riding you're doing. When I'm out for a ride, that is all I'm doing... riding my bikes. I don't use my bikes to go out shopping, to be 'seen' or any other BS people do with motorcycles. So when I ride, I prefer to wear purpose built 'full on' protective riding gear. If those who happen to see me riding in full gear want to think that I'm a 'wanna be' racer, so be it. I could care less what they think, as I'm not out to impress anyone. My riding gear has only one purpose, and that is to protect my hide as much as possible in the event of a crash.

For the ladies, I recommend the Speed and Strength Wicked Garden shoes. They look a lot like the men's "Run with the Bulls" shoe.


They're great for walking around, after safely arriving at your destination. No break-in period, required.

The ladies got some really cool gear these days. As I browse for mens stuff, I always end of seeing some great stuff for the gals of motorsports. Companies have done a great job catering to the ladies.

While I appreciate more gear, I wish they'd expand the color options. A lot of stuff gets offered in only black, pink and white, and maybe a shade or two of purple. I don't want something that screams out "girly." I want rich reds, royal blues, bright yellow, etc., which is usually reserved for the guys.

We wont judge. All we care about is that a woman is on a motorcycle haha.
I agree that you are limited with colors, but you are also possibly limited by fit as well. Just guessing here, but most of the gear, like jackets & pants, could be too large for the average female I would think. You might be more provoked to trying on articles before buying if its from the men's dept.
Just the other day im pretty sure I saw a gal in some mens Astars boots...
