Merlin Explorer Collection
The Merlin Explorer Collection has been designed to complement the rise in accessible, do-it-all motorcycles, along with the increased desire to get out and travel thanks to nearly 18 months of COVID-19 lockdowns. Also behind the design – the rise of younger motorcyclists, with Instagram’s heritage scene rapidly growing and the build-up of motorcycling in popular culture encouraging more young people to get their licences. Explorer offers rugged styling, durability and protection while incorporating the signature Merlin styling using only the best materials and components, such as Halley Stevensons® waxed cotton, D3O® armour and Cordura®.
Merlin Bandit Waterproof Boots
Bandit brings a style that’s growing in popularity to the Explorer collection, offering a utility style in a functional motorcycle boot. Their premium cowhide leather upper has subtle contrasting panels to set them apart, and they’re backed by the Merlin-exclusive Hipora® Triple Liner for superior waterproofing. D3O® impact protectors and a reinforced footbed provide enhanced protection, while a padded tongue and high grip sole offer the comfort and reassurance needed for longer rides. Available in sizes UK7-12.
Care for your Bandit boots
After each use, ensure all dirt and grease is wiped off the boots and that they are completely dry before wiping with a non-abrasive cloth, paying particular attention to the panel seams. Because of the Crazy Horse finish, the boots cannot be cared for like regular leather boots. These ‘naked’ leather finishes don’t necessarily need treating, but if you wish to then please use a mink oil or other ‘exotic’ cleaner. You may find that this will darken the leather.
