New Riding Boots

For the last couple of months I’ve been having problems with the zipper on my riding boots (HD Havoc). If I moved my foot a certain way the zipper would split. I would struggle to get the zipper back down… get stressed, say a few cuss words and then Bryan would fix it for me! It would stay zipped until the next time I wore them… then I had to go through the same routine with the zipper.

As I was leaving Sunday to meet Karla for our Cottonwood Pass ride… my zipper split once again. Again I struggled and cussed at the darn boot… only this time the zipper detached from the teeth and teeth bent… ugh! I was so mad, I had those boots for a year and wore them only for riding! Dang it… what was I going to wear, I had to hurry because I didn’t want to keep Karla waiting. I grabbed my hiking boots, laced them up and left. While riding, I had to be mindful where I placed my foot on the peg… I didn’t want my hiking boots to melt on my pipes.

Monday I went boot shopping. Bryan suggested I check Sears, a friend of his recently bought Harley Davidson Riding Boots from there and paid less than the HD store. I went online and checked out there selection and found a pair that I liked (Faded Glory – Copper Color), which happened to be on sale. I headed to our local Sears store, they only had men’s HD boots in stock… ugh. The sales lady mentioned that if I order then online from the store I wouldn’t be charged any shipping. The only problem was I wasn’t quite sure on the size I needed, since I lost 25 lbs my shoe size also went down. I went to Pikes Peak Harley Davidson tried a couple different sizes of the boot I wanted (they only offered it in black at HD), ordered online through Sears and paid only $10 for Expedited Shipping. They arrived yesterday, just in time for any riding I may do this weekend!

  1. Those are nice looking boots! I have 3 different pair of HD boots and find they fit great, and hold up well. I got all of mine online from different places. Now you have to do alot of riding to break them in!!

  2. These are great looking HD boots. I am still wearing my hiking boots. I think next spring boots will be one of my many new purchases.
