Introducing the AETHER Moto Boot. As with all of Aether’s motorcycle offerings, they made sure these boots feature the necessary protection to keep you safe while still maintaining a refined urban aesthetic. Much of the moto industry opts for loud and logo’d, but they believe in keeping their protective gear devoid of crazy colors and excessive branding.
The AETHER Moto Boot is created from 100% vegetable-tanned Italian leather and is fully leather lined. It features internal D3O® ankle-protection pads for impact protection. The boot features a Vibram “Commando”-style sole with low-profile forefoot lugs, and a reinforced-leather shift-pad area on the vamp to prevent early wear-through from shifting. Constructing these boots with function in mind, they placed speed hooks at the top of the boot to help with quick lacing, and a finger-pull is stitched on the back for ease of putting on and taking off.
The midfoot arch of the Vibram outsole is buttressed by the heel pad, which acts as a natural area for foot pegs. Additionally, the boot’s shaft construction allows easy flexing for shifting or walking. A heavy waxed-nylon blue thread is Blake-stitched through the Vibram sole, adding a pop of color. The AETHER Moto Boot will develop a deep patina with time and wear. A second, bonus set of laces is included with each pair. These boots are thoughtfully constructed for motorcycle rides but sophisticated enough to leave on throughout the day. They’re motorcycle boots appropriate for any setting.
