I'd really appreciate any feedback you can offer on the decision I face regarding new boots.
I commute about 30 miles/day (round trip), 9 months of the year.
I have an 03 VFR w/ABS.
I don't go to track days.
I don't wear leathers (armoured textile).
I ride frequently in downpours, so waterproof is important.
I have fairly wide feet (not so wide I have to buy special shoes, though). Yesterday I tried on some Sidis ($485) that were very narrow and too long.
I am replacing Alpinestars Ridge "waterproof" [sic] boots that are falling apart after six months and leak.
I want protected, dry feet.
So... which set of boots do I buy? Or should I buy some other non-Gore-Tex boots and a set of Treds?
Any advice would be appreciated.
