Street & Steel Oakland Jeans

The Street & Steel Oakland Jeans are a pair of classic five-pocket jeans designed for the moto enthusiast. The traditional design uses a denim blend with elastane for a touch of stretch and added range of motion. The tailoring straddles the line between boot cut and straight cut to reduce snags and buffeting when on the bike. On the inside of the Oakland Jeans, aramid reinforcement lines the seat, hips and knees. This heat- and tear-resistant fabric protects from abrasion as CE knee armor inserts protect from impact.

Features:

  • 12oz stretch denim riding jeans
  • Seamless knee design
  • 5 pocket design
  • Heat and tear resistant aramid-reinforced seat, hips and knees
  • Removable and adjustable CE knee protection included
