The Road Racer Boots first appeared in 1977 and were a reworking of the ten year old Racing Boots. The most obvious difference was the quilted front panel, an innovative device which provided protection with flexibility, the construction was, and still is, unique, the inner construction is also completely different from the 178 Racing Boot and two expanding gussets provide extra ease for wider legs. The design was patented by Lewis Leathers (Patent No. 1092429). Worn by many top motorcycle racers of the day, the boot is as unique today as it was in 1977.
