Shift Racing does from a style standpoint. And the fact that they are able to integrate serious protective elements into their gear really puts the pressure on their competitors to up their game. With the full high-top Shift Kicker Shoes and the Shift Fuel Street Shoes, they have provided all sport riders out there with non-clunky protective riding shoes that really stand apart from the rest but are subtle and stylish enough that you can wear them around town under a pair of jeans without anyone knowing you've got protective moto gear on.
Check out our Shift Fuel Street Shoes Review:
For protection, there is medial and lateral hard plastic ankle protection that will keep you safe from impact and offers abrasion resistance beyond the leather itself. The reinforced toe box protects the front of your foot while the injected rubber inserts atop the toe box aid in protection and grip when shifting. The molded and bonded polyurethane outsole provides a great deal of comfort and will allow you to walk in these shows all day when you get off the bike. Bringing to the table the perfect mix of comfort, style, and protection, the Shift Fuel Street Shoes are a bestseller for a reason.
Next is our Shift Kicker Shoes Review:
For safety, there is hard plastic medial and lateral ankle protection, a reinforced midsole for strength on the pegs, a reinforced toe box, and an extremely subtle injected rubber patch over the toe box for strength and grip while shifting. The sole is molded, bonded and non-slip for superior traction properties and exceptional resilience and comfort. Lastly, the interior of the shoe is breathable and moisture-wicking so on those long rides there is no chance of your foot getting unpleasantly clammy.
