The allure of cooler temperatures and autumn’s vibrant colors call thousands of riders to the streets each Fall. As temperatures begin to drop and Mother Nature adds weather road bumps to riding adventures, staying safe with proper footwear protection is more important than ever. The Fall/Winter ’17 Performance Collection from Harley-Davidson blends some of the most superior performance features on the market to a collection of boots built for the often unpredictable open road.
“For many riders, motorcycle season is year-round,” said Amy Lovall, Wolverine’s product manager of the Harley-Davidson Footwear product line. “With this in mind, our challenge is to bring seasonal standouts that provide year-round protection to riders and fans from coast to coast. This fall we have some very exciting editions that elevate our performance footwear collection to new heights and bring an added level of protection and security to all-season enthusiasts.”
Fall ’17/Winter ’17 Highlights include:
Renshaw MSRP: $170
Exclusive to Harley-Davidson dealerships, the men’s Renshaw was built tough and ready for the open road. The six-inch classic lace-up design is updated with a TecTuff abrasion-resistant overlays on the toe and vamp, adding increased durability in high-abrasion zones. The Renshaw features added design details including an inside YKK locking zipper for ease of wear and an outside air vent zipper to provide increased ventilation.
Saffron MSRP: $150
For women riders who require footwear that’s high on safety without sacrificing style, the Saffron is the must-wear boot for the winter. The boot features a Poron XRD fabric lining throughout the ankle that is soft and lightweight to the touch, and engineered to absorb shock during repeated impacts.
Huxley MSRP: $150
For serious rides in sometimes severe weather, the women’s Huxley blends an athletic silhouette with some of the best performance technologies on the market. Crafted with a waterproof full-grain leather and Cordura upper, the Huxley features a breathable Hydro-Guard waterproof membrane allowing moisture out but never in.
Paxford MSRP: $200
The men’s Paxford 10-inch engineer riding boot features a supple full-grain leather upper with Flexvent technology allowing air to circulate in and out, providing better flow of air to feet. Harley-Davidson branded metal plates on the toe and heel along with the iconic Bar & Shield adorn this must-have autumn riding boot.
Edison MSRP: $200
Off-season rides can be witness to some of the more challenging weather conditions of the year. The men’s Edison boot brings the best performance features Harley-Davidson can provide to a pair of boots built for Mother Nature’s worst. Part of the well-loved FXRG (Functional Extreme Riding Gear) series, the five-inch lace-up boot features a waterproof full-grain leather upper paired with a breathable Hydro-Guard waterproof membrane that allows moisture out but never in.
