Want to look cool and still get some decent
level of protection? Then this video is for you. Welcome to our Best Sneakers 2020 Video, where
we’ll be going over a couple of our top picks for sneakers that will actually offer
some protection and still look great! We’ve definitely seen the casual gear riding
segment really grow over the years and no where have we seen this more than in the abundance
of motorcycle sneakers we’ve seen churned out by Revit, Alpinestars, TCX, and Dainese. These sneakers are focused on urban riders
who are willing to trade a bit of style and convenience for a little bit of protection
since these shoes do come with less protection compared to your standard motorcycle boot. Though there are plenty of other shoes in
the casual riding category, today we’ve stuck with just sneakers since these are still
the most popular by far and we’ve mainly taken our selection from Dainese and Revit
due to their high quality, good protection, and solid prices and we’ve chosen a range
of styles, features, and prices as well as some of the shoes are even waterproof. So today we’ve chosen the Dainese York,
the Revit Taylor, the Dainese Street Darker Gore-Tex, and the Revit Jefferson sneakers Before we go into our shoes for the day, don’t
forget to subscribe and check out the rest of our YouTube channel where we’ve got plenty
more gear reviews and guides. First off, we’ve got the Dainese Street
York sneakers, the new version of probably one of if not the most popular sneakers in
this category: the Street Bikers. These shoes come at a recommended retail price
of 140-160 Euros depending on if you go for the perforated version, the air, or the waterproof
version, the D-WP. Not only are these shoes versatile and extra
stylish, but they’re also bringing you CE Level 2 protection. For material, these sneakers are made of cow
suede to give them a soft feel and a normal sneaker look. However, underneath these shoes include a
nylon heel cup and rigid ankle inserts, as well as a reflective panel at the back. These are shoes that you’ll have to break
in a bit, but once you do they’ll be very comfortable and the main drawback of these
shoes is the lack of a hard toe protector. Next up, we’ve got the Revit Taylor sneakers. These stylish sneakers from Revit are a little
bit more out there in terms of style, but this does mean these high tops bring you plenty
of protection and ventilation. These sneakers come in at a recommended retail
price of 160 Euros, and are made of a variety of materials. The heel, collar, toe, and the area around
the shoe’s laces is made of nubuck leather. Underneath the leather, you have suede leather
along the sides and just behind the toe. Lastly, holding these different layers together,
you’ve got Dynax mesh for abrasion and tear resistance and ventilation. These shoes also include thermoformed cups
in the heel and the toe as well as an injected plastic cup in the ankle to give you more
effective protection. While these shoes have seen some issues with
fitment, being narrower in terms of fit, they do offer plenty of protection and sturdiness. On the fully waterproof end of the market,
we’ve got the Dainese Street Darker Gore-Tex sneakers. These are great shoes and if there were any
downfalls or failings you found in the Dainese York, then these shoes more than make up for
it. Though the Street Darker Gore-Tex are coming
at a recommended retail price of about 200 Euros, or about 220 US Dollars, they are meant
to be high quality. The shoe is mainly made of high tenacity polyamide
fabric, which’ll give you very good abrasion and tear resistance as well as offering a
good level of ventilation. To keep the water out, these shoes use a Gore-Tex
breathable membrane as it says in the name. For protection, these shoes also do better
than most Dainese shoes in this category. They’ll be coming with a nylon insole, reinforced
TPU heel, TPU ankle reinforcement, and rigid ankle inserts all to bring these shoes up
to CE level 2. These shoes will also run narrower, so it
may be a good idea to see if you may need to go for a half or full size up. Lastly, we come to the Revit Jeffersons. These sneakers are new to Revit’s line for
this year and we’ve already seen them flying off the shelves. These shoes are coming in at a great price
(about 130 Euros or approximately 145 US Dollars) and have plenty in terms of protection. These shoes are mainly made of a mix of nubuck
cow leather and artificial leather for abrasion resistance, while the tongue and cuff are
made of washed canvas where things are a little less exposed. For protection, these shoes include a thermoformed
heel cup and a thermoformed toecap, which is a medium amount of protection for these
types of sneakers. However, some nice additional features are
this shoe is partially perforated for ventilation, and it comes with an Ortholite insole and
an extra pair of laces in a different color already in the box. If you’d like to purchase any of these sneakers
we mentioned today, make sure to head to ChampionHelmets.com where we have a lowest price guarantee. So, if you find them cheaper anywhere else,
let us know and we’ll give you a better deal. That’s it for our sneaker guide, you’ve
seen a small selection of a variety of styles and features in these different shoes and
by no means is this the end of the line in terms of casual riding sneakers, since there
are simply so many. Though one thing to pay attention to would
be to check the fit since most European companies like Revit and Dainese tend towards a narrow
fit. If you liked the video, make sure to subscribe
