It’s hard to design a boot that’s at once both modern and classic, but A-stars did a nice job threading the needle with this Vika boot.
The boot's soft waterproof leather and suede construction is backed with a breathable waterproof membrane, and its lined with a breathable mesh to keep air flowing, and the integration of subtle elastic flex zones helps aid in mobility.
Protection wise it's got ankle armor built in and a reinforced heel and toe cap offer much more than your average fashion boot. The boot's auto locking, full-length zippers have smart leather tab coverings to protect paintwork from scratches.
Plus, the good-sized heel delivers some valuable stand-over height that a lot of female riders ought to appreciate while reaching down for the ground at the stoplight. Especially those opting for the wee sizes—these boots run on the small side and are offered all the way down to a 36, or US 5.5.
