New Rock Itali Biker Boots

Well, it’s World Goth Day and as someone who loves all things dark, warped and generally off beat I thought it would be a perfect time to show off my New Rock 7605 ITALI Biker Boots. It was either that or plumb the depths and actually review some guyliner. While my new footwear is just a few weeks old I’ve actually been wearing this brand and style of biker boot for well over ten years after venturing into the New Rock shop on Camden High Street and picking up a pair for £110 in 2005!

So, what do New Rock say about themselves? 

‘New Rock boots, shoes and accessories are the ultimate statement in alternative footwear and clothing. New Rock are famous for both their originality of product design and the quality of the product it supplies.’ 

Personally it was the buckle design on the side of the boot that drew me to these originally and as soon as I picked them up and tried them on I knew they were for me. There is so much room inside the boot that they don’t tend to rub about the ankle or further up the leg. I did find that my foot would move around slightly inside the boot and I’d suggest some decent insoles to combat this.

The sole is just over an inch thick and has a cushioned feel when you walk, and walk taller!

I wore my first pair into oblivion - they came with a ten year guarantee from the shop and they lasted for the full ten years before they gave up the ghost and the sole split. Now, even with a slight split (which became bigger) they still remained a decent pair of knockout boots, I just couldn’t wear them to the office any longer. 

There is a collage of the boots after over ten tears of near daily wear below just to show you how they hold up.

These boots regularly sell for around £170 but you can, as I did pick them up for just over £100. When you consider the sheer amount of wear, tear and abuse these boots endure on my feet and how long they last for it works out at less than £10 a year for a cracking pair of alternative footwear. New Rock have an extensive range of alternative boots and if I was so inclined I’d have no hesitation in recommending their quality. For me however, the fact that I have gone out and bought exactly the same style and make of boot should tell you everything about how I feel about the brand. Top notch New Rock, top notch.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  11. Goodness that is good value for money. Whatever I pay for my shoes they never seem to last more than two years.

  12. I love New Rock boots! These look amazing! I've got some purple flame ones. My original pair (plain black leather) probably lasted me 10 years until one particularly muddy Bulldog Bash finished them off good and proper. xx

  15. Omg I know this probably sounds silly but I didn't know New Rock were still a thing! I remember having second hand pair when I was younger and I wore them until they were completely dead.

  21. I love New Rock boots. It's good to know they really do last the 10 years too. I only wear mine occasionally as they're just so heavy for my little legs!

  22. Fantastic boots, would love to get them for my other half. I'd love a pair too but lots of the designs for women are a bit too much when it comes to the heel and sole.

  26. £170 for a pair of boots that last TEN YEARS? What an absolute bargain!

  27. I love these boots, they are gorgeous, so chunky and the square toe is fab too.

  28. There is something about a great pair of biker boots, especially when they look better when they get a little worn. I bet price per wear for these is next to nothing!

    1. It's less than a penny per wear Jen, so excellent value for money. If I remember correctly the sole didn't even start wearing for the first five years!

  29. These look like they would also be nice and heavy because they are so chunky so could help you from falling over if you had maybe had one two many drinks. Just don't stand on anyone's foot whilst you're at the bar!
