Falco Lennox short riding boots review


I pulled the trigger on the Falco Lennox riding shoes for the same reason that I purchased the excellent Viaterra Holeshot mid-cuff gloves. My daily commute to the office is a mere 6km and wearing the other full-length boots I have was proving to be too cumbersome (and too shouty for me) to the office. 

One of the main reasons I was drawn to the Lennox shoe was its subtle, almost casual shoe-like appearance. I believe in keeping a low profile, on and off the bike, and these boots were right up my alley. My neighbour once asked me why I was wearing full gear while leaving for the office, except for the footwear, and was surprised to know these are protective, two-wheeler-specific shoes. 

And while they may appear similar in height to a normal sneaker, these go well above your ankle. The closure is also quite secure with the added benefit of velcro at the top of the zip (both of which are quite unique in this class). In fact, it is a little tough for me to slide my right foot in/out of these shoes. This could be down to the fact that my lower right appendage is longer than the left due to a childhood cycling accident (there’s clearly a pattern to my behaviour), but it is still worth keeping in mind.

The Lennox may look like normal sneakers, but are definitely tougher than that. While the heel, toe and ankle areas all have hard, protective inserts, Falco has ensured you don’t feel them when you’re off the bike.

The fabric has started to tear where the foot flexes while walking.
I have been using these shoes for well over a year now and they have held up well for the most part. The only gripe I have is that the fabric on the right shoe (the left one is still intact) has started to tear from the edges and there’s now a small but not ignorable gap between it and the harder material in the toe region. This tear materialised within two months of rigorous daily use, and I expected more.

Normally, the Falco Lennox boots will cost you Rs 13,000, but I got my pair for Rs 9,000 on sale. That is a reasonable price for these shoes, and in my time with them, aside from the above issue, there haven’t been any complaints. If you’re looking for a pair of comfortable riding shoes, then these fit the bill quite well without being too costly.

Price: Rs 13,000
