You don’t need a bike. You don’t really need anything to have some attitude, and look just a bit “badass”…not if you’re wearing these Rosana boots ($190) by Harley Davidson Footwear. Just one look and you know what I mean, don’t you? “Badass” means that you are a cool, confident person, you are daring enough to do what others won’t. You are a woman and you know it, but you’re not a pushover. You say what you want and you got for it. These boots show it!
There are a lot of good reasons to these Rosana boots, perfect for Fall into Winter. Whether you really are wearing these after riding, or you are just strolling around town, or hoping to look hot for your date tonight, Harley Boots give you that edge. And what I have learned over the past few seasons that I’ve reviewed Harley Davidson footwear is that these boot not only look good, they feel great. They are engineered to make your feet comfortable.They work with just about anything you pair with them with, from jeans to skirts and dresses. The silhouette is slim and elegant but the chunky heel gives it enough heft to be “tough enough” for jeans. The full grain genuine leather upper is a bit “badass” in it’s own right, soft, but still very sturdy. The boots are not ankle length, they come to mid calf so if you’re wearing short pants or a shorter skirt the boot will cover them, but since it’s not a tall boot it won’t be uncomfortable to wear all day long.
If you wear longer pants you won’t see the wrap-around leather strap at the ankle, and the crystal accents and metal pyramid studs that show you’re not just a girl, you’re a powerful woman with attitude! You won’t see the YKK® locking inside zipper that lets you just step into the boot easily, no tugging. The wrapped heel is substantial, and 3” what makes the boot so walk-able is the full cushioned sock liner inside the boot for softness and to keep your feet from getting too hot, and the cement construction and rubber out-sole that gives some flex when you walk.
The boot is available in sizes 5-11 in a medium width which should fit most and the boot runs true to size (I am a size 8 shoe and I was sent a size 8 and it fit perfectly). If your foot is a bit narrow, wear a heavier ssock.
Although I don’t often use my column for personal endorsements, but when it comes to Harley Davidson Footwear I have to say that after wear testing their boots for several years, the brand has won me over. I have terrible feet and boots are never comfortable for me. They usually don’t fit at all and even when they do, they start to hurt within an hour of wearing them. But Harley Davidson Footwear boots, no matter what the style or the height, have surprised me with their comfort. In fact, I’ve worn HDF boots all day long and have been on my feet traipsing around, even in the Stiletto Vicky and managed to do it without pain. These are boots I spend my own money on, even though I also get samples of boots to review. The styles are mostly casual, with heel heights that are easy to handle (I only wish there were more stilettos like the Vicky Boot because the higher heels are as comfortable as lower heels and a lot sexier), but the additional of studs and stones, straps and buckles on so many of the styles available also let you show your sexier side. In fact, I wrote about the sex appeal of the boots in my Leatherandlacespice.com column last year.
There is something about wearing a pair of sexy, studded black boots with a Harley Davidson metal plaque on the side that makes you want to strut with just a little more confidence. If you are looking for boots this Fall, check out the entire line of Harley Davidson Footwear because whether you like boots that are plain or studded, tall or short, flat or heeled, there s a bit of “badass” waiting for you in a boot that you will want to wear, everywhere.
