XPD X-Nashville: tested on scrambler, naked and café racer.
Who said that you only need to use travel shoes or boots to travel the world by motorbike? Or maybe take two or three bulky pairs of shoes with you?
In our test with the BMW R 1250 R and in the future scrambler tests that we will do, we have decided to test the beautiful and comfortable X-Nashville di XPD Boots, the Spidi footwear brand.
Having established that our choice consciously focuses on a shoe that is not totally waterproof (so bring the overshoes on long distances), we wanted to see how it is all day walking around in motorcycle and on foot.
La upper, with the timeless amphibious look, it is all in sturdy full grain cowhide leather 1,2 / 1,4 mm thick, greased with water repellent treatment, with reinforcement on the change point, malleolus protection, high lacing and zip for easy fit. It slips on quickly, tightens and you are ready to go.
Immediately you feel that good feeling of comfort and comfort together with the protection of the skin and reinforcements, without creating painful or annoying areas.
In the saddle, the sole Touring mapping with a classic tank design offers excellent grip on any surface, asphalt, dirt road, rubber or metal platform.
La lining in leather, it keeps the foot dry and “pampered” at comfortable temperatures (tested in average temperature conditions from 0,4 to 12), 25mm thick, breathable full-grain calfskin, together with the insole with comfort footbed in breathable full-grain calf leather.
We have now done a few thousand kilometers, even 500 in one day without touching motorways and honestly we have not regretted the touring boot we usually use.
So if you are looking for a beautiful motorcycle shoe in the saddle or at the bar, for every day and weekend on the bike, comfortable on the road and on foot, I would say that the X-Nashville will accompany you for many kilometers.
The retail price is € 219,00 and you can see it directly here.
Good road to all and remember that “The roads are made for travel, not for destinations ”(Confucius).
