Riding boots are quite different from standard motorcycle boots because they are normally lightweight and are designed for ultimate comfort, due to the fact that you will be wearing them for extended periods of time. When you're looking for a pair of riding boots than you will want to ensure that they have enough support within the actual boot to keep your foot warm and comfortable during those long rides across the country. You will also want to ensure that your riding boots are made of extremely comfortable material on the inside, because if you have a tongue on the riding boot that is harsh, you may experience chafing.
Make sure that the tongue of the riding boot is cut to resemble the curve of your shin, because this will also prevent any type of chafing you may experience on a long ride. The more support that your riding boots give you, the better they will treat your feet during a long ride.
