Protection. They won't fly off or tear a hole in them from sliding on pavement. Reusable. Total ankle support and Achilles protection. No worrying about shoe laces getting caught in your chain and you drop the bike at a traffic light.
Crash tested and all. If there is one thing A* does right it is their boots. You don't have to go as high as I did and you can find other brands for cheaper. It's the same thing as sliders on a bike. It can go down and you can get right back up and ride away (Low sides mostly).
Ohh here is the description:
