I'm in the process of buying some new boots and was wondering what you guys are wearing. I'm curious to what brand, how high the shaft is, etc.

I'm sure there are better boots...
but I haven't found any that can
perform as well for under $100.00
These are very lightweight, waterproof,
traction is excellent, comfortable all day...
even when shopping with the wife.
My next pair will be the same.
mine have 45,000 miles of riding
on them.

Danner Acadia's. Very light and with the 200 Thinsulate the feet stay comfortable all the time, untill the temp gets in the 40's. Then they get a little cold but not uncomfortably so. Hot weather doesn't affect them either. They have a fairly cushy sole so they are as comfortable as sneakers. Plus like all Danners they are waterproof. These are great boots as they will breathe in the summer but keep your feet dry in the rain.

red wing water proof work boots and red wing motorcycle boots. A lot of motorcycle specific boots look too weird for my tastes and I don't like buckles or zippers some have.

Oxtar TCS EVO RX

They have mechanisms to prevent the foot and ankle from being over-extended.

Not a comfortable boot to walk in, but not bad either. The ankle protection mechanism is noisy. Vented for cooling.

Very comfortable on the bike. I've done several 12 hour days in them.

Oh, and they throw cool sparks when you drag them, LOL.

I wear these formerly Oxtar Matrix

I'm on mine 3rd pair in 5 years. They are comfortable, have incredible grip on slippery road services and are completely waterproof. I've ridden in driving rain for 12 straight interstate hours and they didn't even think of leaking.

These and the Gaerne boots are also one of Fred Rau's favorites.

So you've spent over $600 for riding boots in five years?:eek:4:

I am still wearing the same pair of $120 DMs for 3+ years and they are my everyday boot too.

Year round I wear Frank Thomas Aqua Street boots. I've been wearing the same pair for three years and there is still no signs of wear. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer, my feet stay dry in the rain, they are comfortable to walk around in, and occasionally I wear them with my slacks and tie at work and no one really notices I forgot to bring my change of shoes with me (or no one bothers to mention it).
