Hi guys,

I'm after a pair of boots for commuting/touring/adventure riding, so a bit of everything but predominantly road riding. I say adventure boots as I want something with more protection than your average road/race boots - I'm too used to my Tech 3s and going back to road boots leaves my feet feeling vulnerable! So I'm looking for something with very good protection and waterproof. Off-road styling is not essential. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Wozza

I have just bought a pair of Forma adventure boots,not only waterproof but very comfortable ,you could walk a good distance in them if your that way inclined and they are of course very protective.

They are what all CRF250l riders should be wearing :lol: .

Take a look at Gaerne React boots - popular enduro boots, light weight, great protection, comfortable, great price.

W2 http://www.infinitymotorcycles.com/prod ... boots/1981 You may be able to get them for £150.
They have been very good at the waterproof bit - even during the recent heavy rain and deep water.
I also wore them on my India trip and were all day comfortable, even in 30C temperatures but they are warm in winter. No need for Sealskinz socks.

Treated myself to a pair of sidi adventure. Gobsmacked as to how good they are. waterproof, warm, comfortable, robust.

I do a lot of riding all year round. These boots are pricy but a worthwhile investment.

+1 for the Sidi Adventure, top boots but top price to match

best boots I've ever had.

Steel toe-capped Dunlop wellies? In yellow?

+1 - these are amazing straight out of the box. virtually zero break-in time.
