Baby it’s cold outside! But I bet you still just want to get out and ride. What you’ll need is vital winter gear that will keep you warm on the inside when the temp drops to at or below freezing.
First, you want to keep your toes toasty. Check out our Carolina Insulated Ranch Wellington Work Boot. These boots are waterproof, which is a must for those wet winter months. Even with waterproof boots, don’t rely on cotton socks. Thermal socks are the best option for keeping feet warm and dry within those motorcycle boots.
