Stylmartin delivers all of the features you’d want in an around-town riding shoe with the style and comfort of your favorite pair of sneakers. Nowadays it seems that everyone in the protective gear game has an offering for the rider looking for sneaker style & comfort with a fundamental level of protection. Stylmartin has several options in this category, but the Iron rides high amongst our favorites.
As you might expect from an Italian brand with “Style” in their name, they’ve crushed it in the design department. The defining visual element of this sneaker is the distressed full grain waxed leather accented with subtle red details. It has an artisanal quality about it that sets it apart from others in it’s category.
In addition the great design, the shoe delivers anti-slip rubber soles, waterproof exterior, moisture-wicking interior and CE rated protection in a very lightweight package. At $210 USD, they’re priced at the top of their category, but for the rider looking for footwear that’s comfortable on and off the bike with high-end sneaker style and basic protection, they’re worth every penny.
