In honor of Mother’s Day Harley-Davidson Footwear sent my daughter and I both a pair of boots to show off for some “mommy and me” fun. We decided to do a little fashion vs. function in our selections. I wanted a pair of boots I could wear while riding on the bike with my husband. And she wanted a pair she could show off to her friends at school.
I picked their Auburn riding boots (shown on the left) in black because I thought they would look sleek next to my husbands black motorcycle. They also come in a nice tan color too that would look great with blue jeans. Since I picked riding boots they had some added benefits like rubber outsoles, a metal shank, and full-grain leather that acts as a heat and debris shield. If you ask me they are actually quite nice looking for a riding boot. It did take me a little bit of wearing to get them broken in. I ordered my normal size but they were a little tight on me. I think it was due to the squared toe area that made them not quite as roomy. But after wearing them a few times they did start to feel better. Of course you don’t want a loose riding boot so I am sure that was taken into account when they designed them.
My daughter picked their new Ardsley boots (shown on the right). It’s a mid-calf boot with a little bit of attitude (kind of like my daughter) that looks very fashionable with zippers on both sides. They come in your choice of black or brown. My daughter chose black because she wears black pants a lot. She really liked that they had a zipper on the inside of her foot making it super easy to get them on and off. Actually both pairs had this feature which I agree was really nice. Her boots had a rounded toe area making them much more roomy than the boots I picked out. These were a perfect fit for her, and a little loose on me which honesty isn’t too big of a deal. Either way it was a win for us both because we wear about the same shoe size! It was actually a lot of fun wearing our new boots out together seeing what kind of comments we would get. We heard things like “how cute you have matching boots”, “I love your boots”, and even “look at you two biker girls”.
Harley-Davidson Footwear has a really nice selection on their website that will fit pretty much anyone’s style and needs. Stay tuned to see which pair my husband picked for Father’s Day.
