Video: making leathers and boots

Dailies -

motocross_boot.jpgEver wondered what it takes to make a set of leathers or a pair of boots? These videos details the processes for both items from Axo, a brand we don’t get here in the US. The leathers alone require 6 different materials, 12 elastic areas, 13 square feet of leather and 98 total pieces. The process is probably a lot more involved than you assume when you see something similar hanging on a rack.  >

    I don’t know who told you we don’t get AXO products in the USA, but they were wrong. A simple Google search for “AXO motorcycle boots”: http://www.google.com/products?client=safari&rls=en&q=AXO%20motorcycle%20boots&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wf

      D’oh. I’ve never actually seen any Axo stuff here, just in Europe where it’s a pretty big brand.

    Their gear is even sold at Motorcycle Superstore.

    One little heads up- their actual consumer products are made in China. Not Italy, as one viewing the video might be led to assume.

    Wow. If every suit and pair of boots had that level of attention to detail, I would never, ever, complain about spending +2k on riding “kit”!
