Riding boots

Who's got what?

I had A* SMX-5 but they quite beat up now and i will be replacing them. Overall quite good boots though one was noticably narrower than other.

Sidi On Roads, hands down the greatest boot I've ever owned. Perfect for any kind of riding:

ICON 1000 Prep boots - in brown, naturally. Best looking boot around.

Had them for a bit over one month. VERY firm - but comfortable. Very close fitting. Best to try on in shop. I got lucky with sizing because I ordered it 1/2 size bigger to give myself room for extra layer of thermal socks in winter. Boot arrived is tight, but not yet broken in. Boots are warm though - might not need extra thermal layer. Look very trendy. Will not come off in an accident. Good reviews allround ...

Are GoreTex boots not too hot in the summer?

I have an older version of that Sidi On Road Boot. I use them when I ride my Scrambler on dirt roads.

For the R nineT I use a BMW GoreTex boot. I use it year round. It does not get too hot.

I have no issue with mine. I wear summer riding socks when the weather gets toasty (and I've lived in Phoenix and Austin, in case my profile location seems misleading). But unless I want multiple pairs of boots, I need one that does it all. If you want something that's waterproof, but breaths a little more freely, you can get Gore-tex but on a boot that isn't full grain leather. TCX makes a nice one:

That Sidi doesn't look too bad. I too am using the BMW Allround boot and it seems to do the job and can be found on sale. Keeps my feet warm and dry.
