Previous Next 1 of 11 Traditional motorcycle boots make the wearer look like a one-percenter. Motorcycle shoes aka shorty boots look good, but might not be comfortable for all-day wear, and they definitely lack new tech. Thankfully, a company called Integrated Tech Apparel has brought the old motorcycle boot into the modern age. Recently funded on Kickstarter , they should ship to backers in February When you activate the turn signal on your bars, the boots light up to mirror them, which means greater visibility on the road. Even the straps are positioned for safety and durability — the ankle strap holds laces away from the chain, while the lower strap staves off shifter rub. To keep them as tough as boots, the Roame Zeros feature D30 shock-absorbing padding around the ankle and toe. D30 is light and flexible but turns rigid on impact, making it perfect for a lightweight but protective shoe. But of course, the feature that literally makes the Roame Zeros stand out is their connectivity. To take advantage of the wireless signal lights built around the sole of the shoe, riders need to add a wireless relay box to the turn-signal light system on their motorbike.

ROAME Zeros is a rider safety-oriented project that was fully financed on Kicksyarter and we are eagerly waiting to see how well in performs in the real world. The idea may sound as simple as child's play, yet nobody was able to secure funding to put it in production so far, so credits go to these guys. The main thing was to create riding boots that are more fashionable and less bulky than traditional motorcycle boots. Riding in the urban environment, to work, shopping or for leisure and wearing the real-deal tall shin boots is a no-no, yet the protection a riders' feet have when things go awry, and they are wearing casual shoes is another no-no. So the creators of ROAME Zeros took their time to blend in fashion and protection, and then adding an extra detail to make things even better.

Author: Bud Miller January 3, 2 Comments. Gear , Safety. Brake lights and turn signals on your motorcycle shoes? ROAME Zeros puts brake-lights and turn signal functionality inside a shoe using patented wireless technology as opposed to Bluetooth. By simply installing a small box under your motorcycle seat and connecting the included wiring the box and your shoes create their own wireless network. Zeros are true motorcycle shoes with impact protection built-in using D3O. As I understand D3O is comfortable yet stiffens when impact is applied.
Hopefully they have some say in it, but I'm speaking about other churchgoers' expectations here, and probably your wife's. Only idiots are unfriendly to non-Mormon spouses. We keep "waiting" for it to get easier, and every year it just doesn't. She is probably thinking she can convert you if she is with you long enough and is a good enough example.
