I have been hunting for boots with a higher heel, NOT ezy to find. This is one pair I came across that has protection I'm looking 4 as well.
How high does this heel look to you guys, and.................does anyone out there have these?

you need to take a look at "New Rock" boots. Sadly there is only 1 store in the USA, in Las Vegas.

My first thought on seeing the thread topic: "Odd place for a question about starting up a computer."

Second thought: "Oh, I get it!  So many UK members, it must be a question about the trunk!"

Thought after finally reading post: "I'm an idiot." -_-;

over on the general forum someone was looking at that same boot the dainesella. The boot looks comfortable and should give good ankle support. You really need to try them on and wear them in the store for 20 min just to make sure of no pressure points and you can walk in them as well.

Akr....Gee, I wonder who wears these "New Rock" boots in Vegas....
Belted heals.....ouuu baby! That's the guarantee that heals "won't fall off?"

lostboy...how ya doing? I at your comments! Computer booting,....clever, very clever Nice to meet ya and I love your avatar (p.s. lostboy, you're not an idiot, you're windy...that's all)

OAD....I wish I could try these on somewhere....I'm up north in FL....we don't have cycle shops....online baby...online...buy and return policy...ug.
So how high do you think the heel is oad? I need to touchdown (even though my seat was lowered, I need a higher heel). BTW...I saw the topic on general discussion and did not see these boots, I saw another similar type pair that I also considered till I realized the sole would wear down fast

men....so typical...say the word boot and look what comes to mind
A woman however, will take it as "part of one's attire". BOOTS that one wears on ones tootsies.

I needed boots with a higher heel too...being short sucks, LOL! I found that zappos listed the heel height and I got these through them.



Yes, they are Harley, but the logo is small and nobody sees. They are very comfy and the traction on them is great. You can't see it in this photo, but they do have a zipper on the inside. I know it depends on your inseam, but I'm 5'2" and I get both feel almost all the way on the ground. I just have to slightly lean (like a few inches if that) to get one foot completely on the ground. I do want to get my MP3 seat shortened, but until then these have helped a lot!

Here's a link to them: http://www.zappos.com/product/7331506/color/3

The Dainese looks 1.5" and it looks good for riding. The other pair are meant 'for rocking, and thats just what they'll do.' Keep it for a Queens concert.

Jacq......I know about those brown "suede" chaps of yours lady.... I appreciate the offer...but they simply won't match!

MikiB....well hello there newbie...I like those boots of yours (shhh, we know they are HD's...but under our slick pants...no one can C ) I have a pair very similar from HD, but the soles on mine are different/less gripping power....yours look "luggier" (my own word, excuse me). Zappos and onlinebootstore have lots to look at...just have to read their return policies prior to purchase....smart shopping chicksters!

SH Lim...I like those Dainese too....wonder if they can build those babies up higher? What say you ms jacq?
Oh, and SH Lim,....I really love Queen....I may have to play there CD when I log off....and "rocket...I mean...rock-it!" another one bites the dust

Not sure if these would be too high for you....but they have good ankle protection and are meant for riding

Icon Ladies Bombshell Boots (they also come in white):


They look great in person and I really wanted them to fit - but I usually don't wear high heels and these boots just didn't feel right on me. Bummer.

I ended up buying BMW Motorrad Airflow 2 boots because I didn't need any more height (already 5'8") and wanted something cool on my feet with lots of protection.

Would you happen to have a picture of those BMW booties of yours? Those HIGH HEELS are very, very nice, but propped up on my sideboards I think would look silly with ALL the other gear I'd have on! Quite sexy though...could use for something else......or somewhere else.....No?

Hello all,

I'm looking at purchasing an MP3 500 within the next week or two. I'm 5'6" or so, and can reach the ground on both sides, but only on my toes. I am planning on having my seat lowered maybe 1.5".

I'm also looking for shoes with an thicker sole made for men. Alternately, I'm looking for a good quality boot that I could take to a shoe shop and have height added easily. Does anyone have any recommendations on either fronts?

Thanks everyone,

Here are the BMW Airflow 2's I bought:

warning: the photos look cheesy - they are much nicer in person




You can read reviews/opinions here:
http://www.bmwk1200s.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6474

If you don't need something with airflow (or want something waterproof) - these two styles were really nice in person too:
The All-year-round Boot:


The Pro Touring Boot:


I went to several motorcycle dealers and tried on just about every brand (from Diadora, Frank Thomas, Harley, etc.) and the BMW boots seemed to be the most comfortable and best made boots of all the ones I looked at.

If you have a BMW motorcycle dealer around you that carries gear, I strongly suggest you go try on some there.

I wear Red Wings. I very happy with them. They're comfortable for riding as well as walking. Quality footwear.

These womens look like they got a bit more heel than most: Maybe not as high as you want.

Unisex boot recommendation for shorter women and men
I've had great experiences with these Dr. Martens 6" boots.
http://www.quenvolds.com/product_detail.html?item=88361
They are industrial steel-toed safety shoes, with a thick rubber sole and a decent heel. They are quite comfortable and durable, and come in black or brown leather. I have a 29 inch inseam, and these boots solve my height deficiency on my MP3.

Mona.....thank you for showing us that boot of yours and welcome to this CRAZY forum....(you'll find some crazier) but we have fun. I am going to check those Doc Marten's out as I have a 29 inseam as well. How high would you guess the heel and sole to be?

Redwing has a great line of heeled motorcycle boots for both men and women. You can filter gender in the upper right.

http://www.redwingshoes.com/ProductResults.aspx?shoefinder=1&ProductType=Motorcycle&Gender=&Style=

Has anyone had success going to a shoe shop and having height added to their boots?

Okay cedar...I just checked out motorcycle redwing boots....very limited selection 4 women and they do not state the heal or sole height.....

As far as building up your own pair at shoeshop? If Jacq is on board today, maybe she'll "kick-in" and give ya some tips She had her boots heals/soles raised sometime ago.....she loves 'em and it was the answer 4 her!
Oh Jacq......where are you?

Gaining some height...need that....want that!
Here are the three pair I take turns wearing. Two pairs of Harley and one Tourmaster. I am conversing presently with a "heal/soleman" about the possiblities of raising my Tours by 1 and 1/2 inches. I will reveal his name/business after he commits himself, gets the job done, and I'm satisfied. This could be a wonderful find for many of us on the forum. I will keep you posted.

UpDate
This past Friday I mailed my Tourmaster boots out to a shop I found online. He will raise my soles and heels. I asked for a one in a half inch increase in height. He said I will have them back a few days after he receives them. He never did Tourmasters, so mine are "guinea pigs"
I'm very anxious to get them back.......I'll fill ya in then and if he's good....name/website will be revealed

Yep - this is the exact pair that I got too. You can get 'em through Sears believe it or not. The zipper makes it a joy to get on and off - they are very comfortable. I wish they had a better sole - I'm not really a lug sole fan...
