Biker Fashions Point to Waterproof Suede For Spring

A popular riding boot takes a more casual approach with the Taser from Bates Footwear hitting the streets in waterproof suede.

Now offering motorcyclists a combination of style, protection and comfort both on and off the bike, the new Tasers join the Bomber, Freedom, Crossover and Adrenaline models as part of Bates Footwear’s 2017 PowerSports Line.

Launched in 2016, the Bates Footwear Taser combines the looks of a classic high-top with motorcycle-specific protection. Motorcyclists looking for a more casual riding boot that provides abrasion resistance and built-in ankle protection can choose from five different Taser colors, including the new waterproof suede Taser in Grey or Brown.


The new Taser features waterproof suede uppers and a waterproof membrane, protecting the rider from cool and wet conditions. The Poron XRD foam in the side panels protects both the inner and outer ankle from impact, while the oil and slip resistant rubber outsole ensures firm footing on and off the bike. What sets the Bates Taser apart from other riding boots is the level of comfort both on and off the bike, eliminating the need to change into different shoes upon reaching the destination.
