Meet the new Fresno, RSD’s take on a skate-inspired high top with moto-level protection. Available in three colorways, this boot is packed with features like a reinforced heel cup, ankle and toe box, and heavy-duty shank—which all add up for heaps more support and protection than a standard pair of Vans.
Snug up the sturdy waxed laces and you can immediately feel how supportive these high-tops are.
They’ve got a waterproof membrane for all-weather riding, and a cheeky reflective lightning bolt embroidered at the back of the heel—a nice touch.
The boot it made from top-grain cowhide and comes with an abrasion resistant shift pad on the toe. Actually, it’s more of an abrasive shift pad—not unlike grip tape.
Bottom line, these boots are tougher—much more than they look. And that’s the point. They provide everyday wearability in a casually styled package.
