Need advice on quick boot acquisition - October 20, 2014, 02:02 PM

The bottom of my boot just blew out. I want to get a good sturdy and/or waterproof boot to get me through winter until I have time to figure out exactly what kind of riding I'll be doing next year (Being a new dad is fun).

Am I better off getting something a cheaper boot from Cyclegear (The MX boots are actually speaking to me) or heading over to Coleman's and seeing what they have (as a longer time RiderCoach I actually get a nice discount there).

I mainly want to get something today because it's raining tomorrow and my jeep is in the shop waiting on a part they don't make anymore.

I have these
Alpinestars Roam 2 Waterproof Boots - Motorcycle Superstore

They work great and I rode with them all last winter rain cold what ever. Below 14F in the morning at 70 MPH they were good. I think if I was doing a long haul I would add heated inserts.


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

I like tall gortex boots. I've had two pairs of Sidi On-Roads. Comfy boot. Neither pair lasted as long as I had hoped. I blew out seams on both pairs and the Velcro for the cinch straps gets weak over time.

I now have a pair of TCX GTX boots. Better ankle support but still comfy to walk around in. So far they seem very good so fr. The cinch straps are a bit fiddly but they work and are holding up.

There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.
