One of the biggest problems most riders have with going ATGATT is the reality of showing up to work looking like a ComiCon nerd, unless you dress like a pirate or even worse, the flamboyantly Eurocentric sixth Power Ranger. While these boots by Alpinestars don’t utlilize all the technical advancements found in the company’s more sporting options, both the Harlem WP and the mesh-covered Harlem Air still offer above average protection. Finally, there’s an option for riding protected during commutes without getting mocked every morning by the boss.
Both boots are styled similar to modern work boots, offer double density, injected molding in the inner structure around the ankles for protection as well s internal heel counters. The WP boot features leather bonded with a waterproof membrane while the Air combines mesh for better breathability in warmer climates.
The WP retails at $179.00, with the Air going for $159.00. Not bad for boots with a simple style that’s a refreshing return to the realities of the everyday rider.
