So what are the real specs? Half or full grain leather? Blake stitch or glued sole?
patyo
The boots are full grain natural leather from France and the soles are both glued and nailed. Feel free to email us at motobaileys@gmail.com if you have any questions at all :-)

Are this boots certified to CE.
Dnando
There's no way these are CE boots. Just got mine and they're incredibly flimsy.
I really wish you could offer larger sizes like 14+, at least with the made to order after the drop situations. Maybe take a poll to see how many might be in the category. Thing is, I'm not even supposed to need anything beyond 13, but since no one other than maybe converse makes shoes to size, and all the toes seem to be pointed, I have to go up a size and sometimes a width.

That and sizes below 10? I was hoping to grab a pair for my sister as she rides but the sizes are so limited.
Am I the only thing one who’s bothered that these are advertised as motorcycle boots? Kevlar is great and all, but any motorcycle boot should protect my ankle from being crushed or broken. These are fashion boots with a shift pad for style.
KyleDarling
I was super excited to see motorcycle boots on Massdrop but the lack of metal plating in the ankles is a deal breaker. These are NOT motorcycling boots - they are indeed just regular ol' boots with a shift pad.
Shame on MotoBailey for selling "motorcycle boots" without proper protection.
Where are these made? And will there be sizes below 10?
Any way we can get some larger sizes for us larger footed guys? (I'm looking for 13.5 US)
can i get a size 9?
yes yes yes no no no
This is a great boot, but definitely pay attention when they say to order half a size larger than you'd normally wear! I wasn't paying attention and order my regular size. And true to their statement, they were too small. My fault for not paying attention. I couldn't use the boots; but my father who also rides, fit the boots perfectly. He absolutely loves the boots. They look great new; but they start to look really cool when they get some wear and tear on them.
As for what I could personally tell, before giving them to my dad; the fit, finish, and quality were all top notch. These boots will give years and years of service; and look good doing it.
Anyone know if these are waterproof/resistant? Also how are these comfort-wise? I don’t even ride, but they make me want to get a bike.

I'm living there now, and yeah.
But that's true almost everywhere I've ridden--California, Missouri, Illinois.
The only place where I didn't worry about the weather was when I was living in the Australian NT. It was going to be dry and somewhere between warm and HOLY #@$% that's hot. Except for a short while when it was going to be wet and hot.
Alexdre119
Hey Alexdre, so the boots are actually built to sit just above the ankle, but they're designed to look lower to the eye for style. They are water resistant. We recommend using mink oil to treat the leather, the same as a military combat boot. I hope that helps! :-)
Is the shifter extra leather near the toes replaceable? it will wear quicker than the rest of the top of the boot.

Made it in for the trip! Thank you very much!
Dual_Air_Bag
That's great news!! I hope you have an excellent trip and the boots serve you well!!! 🍻
I usually wear a size 9.5 or 10 depending on the shoe/boot so I think a size 10 might be just right. What can I do if the size 10 is too large?

I apologize for the delayed response! We have a 30 day hassle free exchange and return policy, so if you need to exchange for another size, just shoot us an email at motobaileys@gmail.com.
What do the bottom of the soles look like?
NukesInCanada
I apologize for the delay in getting back to you! Here's a pic of the bottom of the shoe. It's an ultra high grip sole.

garbage! Cant even order it in a real mans size!

14EE is so difficult to find.
Keth
exactly I wear a 13E which is impossible to find for moto gear
Every time these come up, same thing I always say - DO NOT WEAR UNARMORED BOOTS ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE IF YOU LIKE BEING ABLE TO WALK. You ever just take a 500lb weight and drop it on your toes? No? Can you imagine what will happen? That's what one of your feet's gonna have to deal with if you drop your bike on a slide. Lord forbid you get your foot under your frame sliders. God almighty I have seen some *wrecked* feet. Wear armored boots. Kevlar on your feet is LAUGHABLE. You can get good looking armored "streetwear" boots, check revzilla and /r/motorcycles!

Also, you'll want coverage of your ankles. A lot of injuries/breaks come from that joint in particular during a crash.
Long and short of all this is that your gear should exist to protect you when you crash, not just make you look cool beforehand. As an experienced rider (5+ years) I would never be able to recommend these.
s204sti
Exactly - the claim that these are motorcycle boots is laughable. Where's the toe protection? Where's the ankle protection? A pair of high-top basketball shoes will provide just as much crush protection as these boots will. Should Nike start calling Air Jordan's motorcycling shoes?
I want to like these boots - I really do like the style - but the lack of actual crush protection just makes these another regular leather boot. I ride without proper footwear all the time but at least I'm not out here claiming my Adidas skate shoes will protect me from anything other than dust tickling my toes.
Wish you guys can add sizes below 10!
sPyKeO666
or um...14EE
Might as well wear your street boots. I laid my bike down last week at fairly low speed wearing Alpinestars Multiair XCR Gore-Tex Boots and still about broke my toe. Luckily I was able to drive home but with these boots would have had me in the hospital.

Saw a guy last week in sandals....and it’s Winter...and we are in Canada. If it wasn’t the highway, I would have tried to flag him down at a stoplight and literally Beg him to deal with his wardrobe issues. See what happens when Canadians have a mild winter...? We get Stupid.
Axeguy
Yeah I live in Oregon and I saw a lady wearing sandals with flip-flops yesterday... bad
I love Chukkas and wear them all the time. I can buy a pair of original Clarks for less than $90. Adding a touch of kevlar and a small leather strap on the toes doesn't feel like it justifies the price point, even at the $144.99 MD special. Can anyone confirm that the price is justifiable?

Economy of scale.
Clarks will sell a thousand pairs of their boots for every one these guys sell.

myself, my husband and our son all wear these boots, and love them. Son dumped his going around a corner, and they definitely saved his ankle, when it got caught between the back tire and the frame!
crochetinggeek
YEAHNOW if we can get these babies with a bit of saving wouldn’t that’s be awesome?
No true ankle protection. I prefer to buy Helston model.
Kylyu
We actually sourced the same ankle protection used by rev'it and some 2015 alpinestare boots. The ankle protection def. isn't the shock absorbing tech that some boots have now. But if we built them with that it would kind of defeat the purpose we are going for, which is a boot that you can wear comfortably every single day and ride whenever you feel like it.
Not black. Too low for great protection. BMW City Boots may cost a little more ($250), but offer better protection, are black, and use a zipper. http://a.co/7J0EbIL

Those are nice.
Rickman
That's not a boot I'd wear to the office.
Thanks for adding that review! We actually had a couple reviews get published just over the past few days. One from throttleroll.com and another from a customer who has blog called the Ride Journal. http://www.ridejournal.com.au/classy-motorcycle-boots-become-daily-shoes/ https://www.throttleroll.com/moto-bailey-boots/

Still no reply to this eh.
if you've read down this far in reviews save your money.
I'm so terribly sorry that I didn't see your comment sooner! If you ever have any questions or issues at all, please reach out to us via email at motobaileys@gmail.com. We care about every single boot that leaves our facility. These are handmade boots that use natural full grain leather and we have found that a very small percentage of them have had some imperfections. That's why we have a 30 day no questions asked return/exchange policy and a 90 day warranty. Please shoot us an email and we'll get a brand new pair sent out to you ASAP and we will cover shipping. Again, we are so sorry for the inconvenience!!
Hey ya'll! I don't know if this helps anyone, but this is the review that I read which pushed me over the edge on buying these boots. There have been so many incredible reviews on these boots, they're pretty hard to pass up if you like the style. And then you see them in person.... My husband looks DOPE in these boots. https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/?s=motobailey
Kevlar linings make sense under fabric, like jeans, since they will improve abrasion resistance. Leather is already pretty good on that so I can't imagine this boot offers something significantly improved. If you want something fashionable, just get any real leather designer boot and you will probably get as much protection as these boots will offer.
How about some men's sizes?
This product is very dishonest. It will not protect your ankles - 0 impact protection, and inadequate coverage of the ankle/shin area for abrasion as well! This is little more than a deceitfully advertised men's wearhouse dress shoe with allegedly better exterior strength. It would never survive a crash or protect you if you did crash.
EARider
You're totally correct on all counts. The "protection" offered is minimal, at best. However, that's not the intent of this boot. It think it's more designed to be a stylish boot that can handle getting a little more action out of a shifter and soles that won't melt from being near an exhaust.
If your focus is on fashion over function, then this would be a good boot choice for riding. I could see myself wearing these while on one of my vintage bikes, but never while riding one of my modern sport bikes.
xalsx
The least they could do is not call it a motorcycle anything as that implies that there is protection of some kind in the design otherwise may as well call it a pair of sandals. :) It's just deceptive advertising practices.
10 is the smallest size? Damn my man-child sized feet.
JoseNova
Oh yeah I'd be all over that drop! Voted!
