    50-60% meaning, it handles regular rains well, while failing to withstand windy downpours. Also, dries quicker than regular shoes. As long as you maintain your frequency of changing socks routinely on a long ride, it's not going to stink as well. Pretty good, I must say

    ORAZO MOTORCYCLING BOOTS

    We had approached Orazo to partner us for a pilot for a travel show for TV being shot in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. They agreed and provided us with 03 pairs of their boots. Ibis Velcro, Picus Velcro and the Picus LWR. This is a review for all three, with inputs from 2 other riders.

    Looks:

    They are good looking and the Black and Orange color scheme is definitely eye catching. The tall design definitely plays a major part in making this look like a serious pair of boots, meant for riding.

    Wear-ability & Comfort

    The other two riders found the boots comfortable to get in and out of them. Once you have broken in your boots, they are comfortable for everyday use and also when touring. As for me, I did not get much saddle time but wore the boots to drive around with the entire crew in tow. What I found was that the ones I was using (Picus LWR), was a pretty rugged pair. I found them to be snug, comfortable to walk in. While riding too, whatever little I could, they were comfortable.

    The only thing I missed with the shoe out of the box was having a rub-strip on the toe, to help protect the boots from excessive wear while changing gears.

    I have removed the Heel shifter from the gear shift lever on my motorcycle and use the toe to up-shift or down-shift and with the addition of this one little thing, the boots are something I am pretty happy with. Also, I do find the boots to be made of sturdy leather and a simple coat of polish restores the finish even after heavy usage.

    Surface Grip wise, the boots held up pretty decently on all sorts of surfaces. We were walking up and down the rampart walls of the forts, worn out staircases, streets, sand, and some waterlogged areas as well, and no one fell, slipped or fumbled with their stepping so all is cool and well.

    Water Resistance
    Not tested as the terrain just did not have any streams or puddles. We could have done a bucket test, but could not as we were on a very tight schedule with the shoot, with days starting at 0430 and ending at about 2200 Hrs.

    Safety and Protection

    Steel Toe protection - Check!
    ankle protection - Check
    Shin protection - Check (In the taller Velcro models)

    This is pretty impressive as they do tick the boxes and that is good news. Steel Toe protection - This is something that is missing in the Alpinestars Goretex Touring Boots that I had picked up a couple of years ago. Even then, I had to shell out twice the price for a pair.

    Thankfully, we did not get an opportunity to test out the level of protection offered.

    Verdict:
    Are they a pair of thoroughbred Track/ADV Boots?
    No. Their base DNA is that of Protective Industrial Boots, with features added to make them suitable for practical motorcycling (touring as well as commuting). This makes them versatile as their basic design makes them usable for everyday purposes and the added features make them good for riding too.

    The pair that I was using (Picus LWR) could easily be worn with business casuals and not look out of place.

    Dedicated Riding boots have their limitations:

    1. Usually, they are a pain to walk in. Try wearing one to office on a Friday with your favorite pair of jeans and let me know.
    2. They cost a serious bundle of money for those international brands. Even the local ones are around the 10K mark and they are not multi-use boots for sure. Being Indians, many of us will think twice before shelling out that bundle of money on a pair of boots that will probably see the light of day on only about 30 days in the whole year.

    To end this, If you are in the market for a pair of riding boots, I would urge you to seriously consider these as an option. At the price-point these are available, and the versatile nature, it surely is worth a consideration.

    We understand your predicament. Our boots are made of Polyurethane (PU) soles which is significantly lighter than boots made of rubber soles. However, PU soles need to be used at a reasonable frequency (once in 3-4 weeks) for increased durability. If used sparingly & stored in damp conditions for a prolonged period of time (ie. 8-10 months) without use, there is a possibility of the soles undergoing hydrolysis. We do hear one-off cases like this when the boots are used very infrequently.

    Hello Riders




    I used Orazo IBIS-Velcro in my recent trip to Spiti Valley, and it performed really well as there is single cons though, but I would strongly recommend it to all.




    Lets discuss it pros first as there are many and then a few cons.




    Pros




    1) Light Weight.
    2) Comfortable.
    3) No problem while changing gears.
    4) Long Ankle Length gives good support to legs.
    5) Soft cushioning which helps in smooth movement of foot.
    6) No tention of tying laces, velcro solves it all.
    7) Steel Toe prevents damage to fingers when we hit stones etc.
    8) No pain even wearing for 10-12 hours.
    9) Firm grip even on slippery surfaces.




    Cons




    1) It is water resistant but not water proof but thats the best we can get at this price.

    Overall it is the best gear for foot I have used so far in terms of comfort, safety and price.

    thanks,
    shivam

    The weight of PICUS is 1100 grams per pair & IBIS is 1350 grams per pair.

    For Ladakh, IBIS would be a better option as it offers better shin protection and lessen's chance of water going in from the mouth of the boot, since it is taller.
