PRODUCT REVIEW: Joe Rocket Sonic X Boots

The Joe Rocket Sonic X boots are a full-height touring boot for street or sport riding. While the boots offer several higher-end features and are quite comfortable, its most impressive feature is the affordable price point, which retails for $112. This technical touring boot keeps riders protected with reinforced ankles, toe and heel box that repels water, although we have not tested them in the wet yet. 

The Sonic X boot also features double-stitched, leather construction with a reinforced textile panel and a convenient side-entry that is on par with other boots that are priced higher. The front and back flex panels around the ankle allow riders better mobility, especially when you’re off the bike. But the extra flexibility doesn’t sacrifice safety as it is internally reinforced at the ankle, toe and heel with a non-slip sole, as well as a reflective Joe Rocket logo at the heel.

For me, the width was maybe a little on the tighter side on a size 10, but I have fat feet anyway. However, some comments we’ve read say the sizing seems accurate to a “medium” or “D” width. 

When comparing to my riding sneakers that are of similar price, these boots are much more supportive and reinforced in the right areas. 

While the Sonic X boots are not likely your best choice for track day rides, they are comfortable, especially the sole, which feels more like a work boot than a stiff motorcycle boot. I think they would perform quite well on longer rides where comfort is at a premium. If a customer is looking for a step up from a high-top sneaker or over the ankle boot without breaking the bank, these will be a good fit.
