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

one of the schools I work with won't allow students (or instructors) to wear shoes with laces unless the laces are taped over so they cant snag pegs or shifters at stops. that being said, for all day running around on the tarmac teaching, I definitely prefer something vented and focused more on walking like my 511 dessert boots (which have laces for adjusting, but a zipper to get in and out, so i can leave them taped with 3M retro-reflective duct tape). My BMW riding boots have me in agony after 3-4 hrs on the tarmac.
