Default No Motorcycle Boots for Short Women :-(

It's been over two years since I have participated in the About forum and the interface has improved greatly. I am not sure if the same folks are still around or all moved on to a life away from the PC!!!

Here is my biggest gripe. I am 5ft2 and have enjoyed riding my Buell Lightning over the past 2 years. Although I have the low seat option, I also benefitted from the Harley Davidson boots that have a platform heel of 2.5". The boots are now 3 years old and falling apart and I cannot find a replacement with a similar size heel.

The closest looking boot is the Temptation D84384 at Legend Boot Shop - Woman Harley Davidson Boot Temptation D84384,Harley Davidson Womens Motorcycle Boots but it is out of stock and so are the others below that have a similar heel.

Is there anyone that can direct me to a place where I can buy a boot size 7-7.5 at a reasonable price with a similar heel please???

elaw,

You should visit more often!

Heck, we even have a new Women's Forum moderator!

Sorry, but I can't help you much with the boots.

You sure you can't have a proper shoe shop repair/reheel them?

One tip, Wolverine makes most of the HD footwear. Maybe they have a model under another name that'd suit.

Probably find some smaller sized work boots at Work, Sports & More or some other work clothing type place that serves the heavy industry, construction and logging trades, they're starting to stock more womens sized clothes and boots by Caterpiller, Carhartt and others. I shop there because they also go the other way with larger sizes.

You guys haven't figured out that this person owns the Legend Boot Shop?

No I am not the owner of the company and anyways, I do not have to stoop that low to attract attention. Before posting on this forum, I tried to email the company twice about my inquiry but received no response so I think the company is out of business. I also searched the entire internet for those boots and no luck either. Looks like Harley Davidson no longer manufactures those models.

HD buys motorclothes in lots from various manufacturers and with few exceptions, once they're gone, they're gone. Even "staples" like gloves and boots change from season to season, so you can't rely on them to have an item for long.

Do you have a Cycle Gear store in your area? They have a great selection of boots.

Any sort of sturdy boot that covers the ankles will do. There's no need for boots to be labeled "for motorcycles". Jump boots, engineer boots, Doc Martens. Most any decent boot is quite sufficient. Just find good boots that fit and are comfortable.

'goos boots?'

Elizabeth, my 'esteamed' colleague is correct. If a boot has a sturdy sole, covers the ankle bones with at least a bit of cushioning, and are comfortable to walk around in, they are a good candidate for bikes.

Stay away from leather soles, such as those on 'cowboy' boots. They can be slicker than snot.

Steel toes are not necessary.

Here is a quick result from the Wolverine site.

Thx for all suggestions so far. Cycle Gear seems to have something similar which may give me the height I want, is of better quality and still maintains it's hotness!
