John Doe Neo Sneakers - Black / Gum

"Are you sure these are protective?"

This is the most common question we receive from people looking to buy the John Doe Neo Sneaker. Considering it's foot hugging shape and weight it is fair to think that these are just a casual shoe. But dive deeper and you'll realise that the Neo is an incredibly capable motorcycle shoe. 

The toe, heel and ankle feature reinforced protectors, while the brand's XTM liner runs across the entire sneaker to keep your feet safe in a slide. The XTM liner consists of a mix of abrasion-resistant DuPont™ Kevlar® fibres mixed with moisture-wicking Coolmax® for the best temperature control on even the warmest Australian summer days. 

The anti-vibration soles ease load on your feet and knees which makes them a joy to wear while still having peace of mind knowing your feet are protected by CE certified footwear. 

If you didn't already have enough reasons to add a set of these to your riding wardrobe, they feature an internal zip making them a breeze to pop on when you're running late for that ride!

Comfy shoe that feels solid

I've got a few TCX boots/shoes that I love, but they're all waterproof so get hot and sweaty. Picked this up, first shoe I've tried from John Doe but have a heap of their garments. Very comfy!

The side zipper definitely helps getting them on, but they still require a yank to get your heel in. I think this hints at how structured they are. Can easily wear all day. They've got a fair bit of padding in them so feel more like a skate shoe than a canvas one, but that's fine. Nice and comfortable with foot controls. The mid-cut makes it easier to rotate your foot and are more comfortable for longer hauls, while still offering a level of protection of your ankle.

I find my feet still get hot but not as my other boots. That said, looking around I think they're probably among the most breathable you can get while still getting solid protection.
