Please suggest a good riding boot

Postby bdimon » Fri Apr 19, 2019 3:23 pm

It's time to replace my boots. I would like a lot of ankle, foot, and lower leg protection. I wonder if a hard plastic boot could be comfortable for street riding.

My ankle still hurts from a February drop that cracked my ankle (maybe). The doctor looked at the x-ray, squinted, and said "may be cracked."

Recommendations, please. 8)

I really like my TCX, which have a waterproof membrane. I’ve got about 20k miles on them in all weather, and 8 degrees up to 105 degrees.

The products on their website are interesting. Where did you buy yours? Which boot did you buy?

Can't say enough good things about my Sidi Canyon GoreTex Boots. I have had them for at least 5 years and 50k+ and they are still as good as new. They are also very waterproof, which is great unless you get water inside of them.
