With undeniable design cues from classic miltary-issue jump boots, the Rocket motorcycle boots from Stylmartin blend classic performance with, well, modern performance. Add a dash of Italian style, a healthy dollop of boot-making expertise from the Romanian factory, and then add in more reinforcement than we've seen from any Stylmartin urban motorcycle boot to date, and the Rocket becomes a handsome option for both walking around, and also for those unfortunate instances when you find yourself having to pull the chute.
Like WWII era paratroopers, for whom ankle injuries were commonplace, modern day motorcycle riders too need a supportive, purpose-specific boot. These solid options from Stylmartin have been endowed with substantial ankle armor discs on the interior and exterior of each boot. They can be speed-laced for an extra snug fit, but can still be put on and taken off quickly thanks to a zippered inner panel, which is also useful if you prefer to go with pants tucked into your boots instead of over top.
Like our classic, best-selling Stylmartin Indian boots, these Rocket boots are made in Romania by hand, with full-grain leather that’s plenty thick and not died all the way through the hide. Keep them polished and they’ll stay looking bright and shiny. But let them run a little and they’ll quickly (and by design) begin to break in and display creases and wear marks. Especially at the shifter patch you can expect to see wear and tear right away if left untreated. They'll still retain their waterproof qualities, however, as that benefit comes from an internal membrane that extends the length of this mid-high boot.
