Ralph Lauren Men’s Motorcycles Boot

Happy President’ day!

Today was kind of lucky day for me, I went to Nordstrom Rack at Downtown Seattle randomly due to a day off for college kids. I went straight up to the third floor as always to start my boots hunt even I have a pair of Dr.martens 14 holes on my feet. I usually starts browsing from size 10 1/2, even though they are too big for me, and I will browsing to size 8.5. My shoe size is US 9, still want to see if I see some cool boots in other sizes. I kept my head up because I know they always put the tall boots on the top of the shelf. At the aisle for size 9, I saw a really cool pair of tall boots on the top of the middle of the aisle. I went straight to them, they are a cool pair of motorcycle boots. I took them and tried them out. I took off my Dr.martens boots which they were so comfortable for all day wearing. And I pulled on these tall babies. They are right below my knee, really supple leather. Made in Italy. Leather lined. All leather upper, with quilted stitching. I just love they have two buckles and a protective cap just like the motorcycle cop boots in Hong Kong. They are really expensive though! The retail price is $1,200 and they are on sale for $500, almost like saved 60%. They are the same price as Wesco boots or Dehner. Just because they are luxury brand so they are overpriced. But I still bought them just because I kind of try them at home and I can make my decision during the 30 days return period. It was funny that when I was checking out, the cashier was really surprised that a young man is buying a pair of motorcycles boots. She was shocked that they cost $500 and she commented she had never seen a pair of boots as expensive as these are. I was thinking in my mind, “I have seen more expensive for a pair of boots. :)”

Prp: They are hard to find. Very limited quantity in the world. Ralph Lauren don’t sell them anymore. Its hard to a pair of boots like these anymore. Very high quality. Handsome.

Cons: Expensive. They are not tall enough. It use hook-and-loop straps instead of zippers for easy on and off.

So the question for you guys is Should I keep these pair of boots or should I spend the money on a pair of Wesco boots or Dehner patrol boots?

I need your comments.

  1. I own a pair I am so glad they are rare and hard to find I dont want the same boots everyone else has I found mine at saks paid 1500 for them and will swap out the velcro with a zipper i love them


  2. Did you keep them or return them? Cause if they look as good as they do on this guy, I might buy them myself. Especially since I wear a 9…


  3. For some time I see your blog every day and I love.

    I would like to thank you for your blog because it is very animante:-)



  4. If I were you I would go with a pair of Wescos. They are expensive but they are by far the best quality boot I have ever owned. The RLs I owned a few years ago were poor quality in comparison to even the cheap Justin workbooks I owned in college when I was working out on a ranch. I’ve owned Ariats, Tony Lamas, Chippewas, Justins, RLs, Corcorans, Magnums, Gripfast, and Wescos. The RLs I owned were by far the poorest quality boots I’ve ever owned. I own a pair of Wesco Jobmasters and they are the best boots I own, I liked them so much I ordered a pair of 16″ Wesco Harness boots from Stompers a week ago. If you are going to spend 500+ on a pair of boots, I would go with a pair of Wescos. If you like tall cowboy boots and don’t want to spend 500, I would look at Ariat and Tony Lama Buckaroo boots. I wear a pair of Tony Lamas Buckaroo boots everyday to work and they are very comfortable. I used to wear a pair of Ariats everyday and they are very comfortable as well.



  5. I think they’re still pretty hot and would look awesome with jeans tucked in. I wear size 9, too, and I have to go to a Nordstrom Rack now! 😉


    • College bootboy, we should actually go there more often to check out some boots. They usually have a good boots collection. I have seen lots of Frye boots there. And add me on Facebook and we should keep in touch more. You still live in Seattle right?

      Thank you for your comment,



    • Isaac, I think so too. I know they are really unique and they are hard to find. But I could get a pair of Dehner for less price with a better, taller look. I am thinking to get a pair of Dress instep patrol boots from Dehner if I am going to return them.



  6. Hey, firstly happy presidents day to you as well. These RL boots have caught my interests for quite a while frankly, but still, i think it doesnt worth $500. I think your analyzation was pretty rational on this one considering the height is totally mediocre and you can put these money get a great pair of dehner or all american patrol boots with an absolut sharper look. The instep for these RL seriously disgusted me and i m def not big of them. Plus, the quilting craftsmanship on leather was created by COCO CHANEL in the very beginning, then Marc Jacob copied it, Ralph Lauren copied even after MJ did. So that would be def considered as a symbol of FEMININ. If you have a loosener budget i m def recommending you get a pair of KOENIG or CAVALLO.


    • Thank you so much for your comment, Zack. Hope you had a great presidents day! You have good choice on a pair of boots then. Koenig and Cavallo are way more expensive than Ralph Lauren. I really like riding boots but they are just too hard to pull them off, so now I like wearing pull on motorcycle boots or lacing boots like Dr.martens 20 holes with zippers. Just fit more to an urban area. But thank you for your comment though.
