A New Kind of Motorcycle Boot

Whats up fellow riders,

I'm new here and a senior student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Currently working on my senior project, which is innovating motorcycle foot protection and would love to hear some of your guy's thoughts!

1. Would you buy a slip on exoskeleton type armor for your foot that you can wear over regular shoes?

2. What are your thoughts on having a protective boot thats attached to your motorcycle?

3. What would be the deciding factor in buying a product like this.

Any feedback and thoughts about this concept is greatly appreciated and will be given credit in my thesis! THANK YOU

sounds like you don't understand why boots are flexible in the first place.
and second, who would want their foot attached to the bike so they can't get off the bike or put their foot down at a stop? you realize a motorcycle doesn't hold itself up while stopped right?

you're not on the right track here.
