ALISO VIEJO, CA – May 29, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – No matter where the ride takes you, Held USA now has a boot for every street and touring journey. The Held boot line is all new in the United States, and includes summer, touring, café and track options.
- For the first time, Held USA has a complete line of boots available for street, touring and track riding.
- Held boots include summer, touring, café and track/sport bike styles.
- Every Held boot has quality craftsmanship, safety features and segment-specific features.
The Camero summer touring boots ($250) are perfect for long-distance rides in the heat thanks to a COOLMAX lining that keeps feet at a regulated temperature. Outside, a cowhide shell with dual-sided ankle protection, a shin protector and KEVLAR fabric reinforcement in critical areas offer protection from the road.
The Joblin ($250) is another summer touring option, especially in areas where the weather conditions are changeable. An OUTDRY membrane is specially laminated with the leather and textile exterior, making the Joblin waterproof and windproof without compromising breathability. The Joblin also has a gearshift pad, reflective sections, ankle protection and a shin protector.
Likewise, the women’s Shira touring boots ($275) combine a leather and textile shell with a HydroGuard membrane to create a waterproof, windproof and breathable boot. The Shira boots also have a detachable internal height adjustment, a gear-shift pad and protection on the shin and ankle areas.
Sportbike and track enthusiasts will find a long list of comfort and safety features in the Donnington ($425) boot. The kangaroo and cowhide outer shell has perforated panels for breathability, and the COOLMAX lining regulates temperature, even in warm weather. Extra protection is provided by a hard plastic internal reinforcement, DuPont KEVLAR reinforcement in critical areas, hard shell protectors and a replaceable toe slider.
Riders who prefer the café style or want a great boot for city riding can opt for the Cattleman boots ($200) in brown leather. The Cattleman has classic short boot styling along with a gearshift pad, anti-slip sole and ankle protection.
