New Boots ?

Post by Camac » Thu Feb 01, 2018 8:35 am

Recommendations needed.

I'm looking at replacing my current footwear. Looking for a touring boot not a sports boot. It will be black, preferably leather and waterproof and not too long in the leg. I do a bit of walking off the bike so comfy when walking. Nothing "Showy".
Any recommendations before I go shopping ?

Thanks.

Ive had some Daytona boots for several years, both comfy and waterproof. Also reassuringly expensive :D

For longer trips, I use Forma Adventure, short boots. Waterproof and very comfortable when walking. Also breathable even in the hottest of the days.
I do have to adjust a gear leaver for these, as other shoes are not as thick.

Thanks for the suggestions.
I have bought a pair of Dainese Fulcrum boots.
All black leather with a Goretex lining . Really pleased with them so far.
Cheers.
