Boot recommendations
« on: 24 April, 2018, 08:01:07 PM »
In the market for some boots of the motorcycling variety. Don't really want racing type boots and no shell suit type colours. Comfort, protection, a degree of water proof-ness and good value would be good. I have pretty big calves too.

Any suggestions?

I’ve just bought some Spada Terrain boots and I’m very pleased with them. They are comfy and waterproof and currently on offer at £69 reduced from £110 so a bit of a bargain  :018:

Altbergs. Made in Richmond, Yorkshire, used by many police forces, last for years, (7 years for mine and still waterproof and sooo comfortable.) And if 'standard' boots don't fit, they'll make some that do. Not the cheapest, and not the most expensive, and you might need to wait for them to be made. However worth a visit to see how they are made, and advice on the best model for you.

I have two pairs from the TCX range, would recommend. Gore-Tex waterproof, comfortable and well made.

Also Altbergs for ultimate waterproofness. Pop over the hills to get the custom made.

I've had my TCX evos for 6 years. Excellent boots. Comfy for riding and walking, waterproof (tested for 8 hours in the pouring October rain) and don't make noises while walking.
