16/10/2013 – These boots are made for walking….and riding

_MG_0229

The boots we usually wear in the workshop are for all intent and purposes the boots we wear riding. Big ol’ steeleys which protect our tootsies from big hammers and bikes falling on them, however they are not that great when it comes too actually feeling whats going on in the bike shift and braking department.

This is why we used these handmade lovelys for our trip, made by Grenson in England they are unbelievably comfortable and although not made as a dedicated motorcycle boot they protect and support perfectly.

15/10/2013 – Belted up…

_MG_0228Leather is a fantastic material and we think its completely underestimated in its use when designing and building a bike. It immediately softens up and gives texture to what can sometimes be the very cold and hard finish of metal and paint.

This is why when it came to our latest adventure we found a small British company specialising in all sorts of handmade leather goodies called Born and Bred. We used a couple of their fantastic belts over the course of the trip and we wear them most days in the workshop, they are built to last and both the buckle and thick leather strap oozes quality.

Need to keep them trousers up in style? Then check out Born and Bred’s fine British made wares here:

07/08/2013 – Burnt Beanie!

It may be summer and it may be quite hot on a rare occasion but with good old unreliable English weather you just never know when the next snow storm is round the corner. Which is exactly why we came prepared for the Vulcan shoot with one of Sideburns ultra awesome beanie’s. The Sideburn boys are a good bunch of people and they turn out a stylish little magazine of which they are already up to issue 14, but not only do they excel in the magazine making area but they also have a wicked taste in design and all there merch is top notch.

06/08/2013 – Das Boot…

vulcan boots colour

We find that when trying to source decent motorcycling footwear its always a case of weighing up a suitable balance of protection, form and function. Like a set of gloves they have to firstly fit right, but also enable the user to feel exactly whats going on in the lever pressing zone and then its a double whammy if they look great too.

Made by Grenson in the heart of England, each set of these stunning boots are ‘Goodyear welted’ meaning that instead of throwing them away once worn up (like most things these days) you send them back to be resoled and away you go again! Each set is lovingly crafted and can take up to 3 weeks to make and the finished result is exemplary. That said these shoes are not specifically designed for protection but damn do they look good and feel good! Check out there fine wares here:
