Winter boot recommendations
« on: August 10, 2018, 10:24:59 AM »
Am starting to prepare for winter. My winter boots are looking very tatty after 4 years. Any recommendations? Waterproofing and warmth important as I ride in almost all weather's.

Had my Daytonas for 15 years or more. Still watertight.

If they ever fail I would consider Altbergs too.

Currently very happy with my Triumph branded Alpinestars gortex boots (bought for a bargain price from ebay) but when they peg out Daytonas are my current wish list favourite .... though you may seriously have to believe in the old saying 'you get what you pay for' once you see the price label.

Motolegends website has a broad range of boots. The Police issue Daytonas would be my ultimate choice.  :028:

Definitely Altborg - you'll want to go to bed in 'em!! Wish I'd had mine years ago.

Had my Daytona Goretex boots 6 years and going strong - Prexport's before that were also good as a cheaper alternative (non Goretex though)  :002:

Altberg here too - faultless

If you're anywhere near North Yorks sometime, you can get them made to measure

Another recommendation for Altberg, mine are 15+ years old and have been resoled by them once, still warm and waterproof, but they need regular cleaning/ polishing with Ledergris.

I would never argue about the quality of Altberg boots and one day I will visit their factory and buy some. I currently have Forma Adventure Low boots and have no complaints about them so I would recommend them as an alternative to Altbergs.
