Axle Shoes by Highway 21


Highway 21 Axle Riding Shoes

When it comes to motorcycle gear I freely admit that I have a problem with two things: jackets and boots. With so many variables in aesthetics and function, it’s easy to spend a small fortune and fill a large closet. For the past few months, however, I’ve left the boot rotation idle and almost exclusively worn the new Axle Shoe from Highway 21. Aesthetically, these shoes move seamlessly from the bike to office to the local brewpub. The canvas uppers and classic high-top appearance garner compliments from motorcyclists and pedestrians alike, and the beefy sneaker format makes them comfortable enough to walk around in all day long. I even wore them all weekend at the Barber Festival without complaint!

The common axiom of moto footwear is that style must be sacrificed for protection, or vice versa. The Axle Shoe makes no such concessions. The crush-resistant, anti-slip sole prevents torsion while the dual ankle bone protectors and reinforced toe/heel boxes provide impact resilience. The thick canvas uppers with breathable mesh liner and the metal lace eyelets ensure comfort and longevity. With an MSRP of $109.95, the Axle Shoe offers style and protection at a price that will leave you with enough cash to gas up the bike and take a long ride! — Shane Powers

The full-synthetic formula is fortified with racing ester to withstand extreme heat and high RPM use. Ester provides and ultra-strong oil film to protect rings, cylinder walls and rod bearing under extreme stress.

Fire Power Next Generation additive package is the result of evaluating more than 20 different additive options. Those 20 options were narrowed down to five of the best, then those five were dyno tested to validate which one would perform to Fire Power standards. The result is ultimate engine protection and wet clutch performance.

Fire Power engine oils are highly shear stable and posted double the viscosity strength of aftermarket engine oils in ASTM 6278 controlled shear stability testing. Fire Power’s Rotary Polymer technology means it stays in grade longer, protecting engines for the entire service interval.
