A pair of efficient and comfortable high tops, waterproof and breathable
Sizes from 37 to 47, only one black color, 119 € recommended retail price
It’s spring, the return of the thong and the shirt: we see again "bikers" and scooter riders riding while being dressed any way and if Darwin will recognize his family, this is obviously not an example to to follow. Sunny days do not prevent you from protecting yourself properly and especially when you come across products that know how to combine discretion and efficiency, comfort and waterproofness..
This is the case with the Ted D3O high top shoe from Furygan. It presents itself as a kind of reinforced high-top sneaker and seduces with its slightly sporty look while remaining relatively discreet. It is distinguished by its bi-material design, with soft textile in its central part, the ends being reinforced with leather elements, as are the lace inserts..
Note that unlike the vast majority of motorcycle boots and shoes, this model does not have a selector guard part on the left and even less on the right..
Furygan Ted D3O Sympatex sneakers
The build quality is good, everything is perfectly adjusted, well in its place and this feeling of quality is confirmed when you have the shoe in hand. But shoes are made to put on your feet.
Tested and approved
The good news is that the Ted D3O doesn’t require a break-in period, where it needs to soften up. We are immediately at ease in it and it is forgotten. If the closure of the laces goes up high enough, there is enough space for the TED D3O to slip on without any problem and the lacing is done naturally..
The shoes do not require breaking in and immediately provide comfort
The textile coating gives a certain flexibility around the foot, but we feel, however, that the Ted remains a fairly rigid shoe, which despite everything does not pose any problems of discomfort on a daily basis when walking or on the motorcycle in the grip of orders. In fact, here is a truly versatile shoe, as I have had it on numerous occasions to keep it on all day long between strokes of the motorcycle. After all, that’s what we ask of him. It should also be noted that the Sympatex lining is soft to the touch..
On the protection side, there are reinforcements at the heel and end of the foot and D3O protection at the level of the malleolus. The sole is non-slip and anti-twist. In fact, the Ted D3O is CE PPE approved.
The malleoli are protected by D3O reinforcements
Finally, we can only praise its strength: several months of use have changed absolutely nothing in the presentation or the level of wear of the shoe and the coating at the toe is strong enough not to wear too much. even, in a bend taken generously, the tip of the shoe would come to make a sensual licking on the asphalt (we know of competing shoes which ended up bevelled after two attempts …). Likewise, if there is no reinforcement at the level of the selector, there is no trace of wear in this place … Solid, therefore !
Waterproof, with that
Their waterproofness is good and allows them to survive a small downpour while staying cool. In short, we do not see any major flaw to report, especially since even the price is well placed. Strictly speaking, we note that the lining, at the heel, sometimes tends to want to come back a little when we remove the shoe (but after several months of use, it is still in place and has not torn) . Likewise, if the Ted D3O is breathable, it still remains a rigid and solid shoe and can turn out to be a little "hot", not so breathable as that, in the middle of the mountain. It is not a pair of Converse, either, but it will be much more effective in the event of an accident … it is not necessary to take a size above your civilian shoes.

At the same prices as the competition at 119 euros (official price), they can be found on the internet at around 110 euros. In fact, the Furygan Ted D3O can highlight, in addition to their excellent level of performance and great versatility, a quality / price ratio of the most interesting.
