THE HELD CONAN BOOTS

GetGeared Guru Take-Away: The Held Conan earned the “BEST BOOT” award! These three main things really make the boot stand apart from others in its category:

 

The Held Conan boots are packed with little features that make a difference:

The Held Conan boots have an a-symmetric closure that ensures there is reduced pressure on the zip, meaning it’s easier to zip these boots up without damaging the zip. It also means a more comfortable fit. Combined with Velcro adjustment at the calf, this boot offers the perfect fit. Another feature that makes a difference is the gear shift pad, which stops the boots wearing when you change gear.

The Held Conan boots offer great protection without compromising on comfort:

The Conan boots have all the protective features you would expect to see, but what makes them different is that they don’t affect the comfort of the boot.

The Waterproofing:

The Conan boots use an Outdry laminate membrane. This ground-breaking technology to ensure that your motorcycle boots are 100% waterproof. The Outdry membrane is laminated to the outer leather of the motorcycle boots. Usually in other waterproofing techniques there would be a separate membrane. A separate membrane means that the rain would have to travel through the outer to the waterproof membrane and it would sit in between those two layers. That in turn means that your boots become heavier, colder and take longer to dry out. The Outdry membrane is laminated to the outer layer to ensure your feet can breathe and will be 100% dry and warm.
