The Tourmaster Response 2 Boot are the latest pair of New Motorcycle Boots from Tourmaster. ( also see: Tourmaster Solution 2 boots ). Overall the Tourmaster Response 2.0 boots look to be a real bargain for the small price of only $89.99. Especially since the original Tourmaster Response Boots sold for $107.99
The New Response 2 boots are similar to the original in that they are waterproof and have a low cut multi-purpose look and feel. However, they have a new styling that is not really consistent with the past design.
At first look the Response 2 boots doesn’t look much like a motorcycle boot, do to the visible lack of protruding armor plated and top sliders. However, they actually offer a host of safety features including ankle protection and shock absorbing foam.
The New Response 2.0 Boot uses a lacing system just like a tennis shoe, but adds in a strap for added stability on the top of the boot. The nice thing about lacing is it gives you the ability to adjust the fit of the boots very easily and in some cases make up for a ½ size difference. The top of the laces are concealed by the ankle strap with a Velcro closure, providing an easy open/close solution. Another benefit of the top strap is it should keep the laces from catching on your bike when riding or moving your feet off the pegs.
To keep you toes dry, the Tourmaster Response 2 boots use a HiPora® waterproof, breathable membrane, which provides breathable comfort for every day use and protection from the elements if/when needed.
The shifter toe pad has a streamline look and feel while protecting against fatigue and wear from shifting.
