Airflow II Boots

Postby bobfromva » Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:20 pm

Just ordered a pair of these boots.....ok ok ok ...PLEASE dont tell me what a horrific mistake I made. I would like to find out if anyone else has ordered them and their perceptions. I got them at a good deal from some BMW dealer in San Diego for $180.

figured they would.....but I have those (hmmm...cant remember what you call them) things that go over your shoes and shins. Maybe that would help. Although...I know its wimpy, but I would probably just pull over anyway if it was raining too hard.

That's not wimpy. that's called riding within your limits and is quite manly to know them and respsect them! :)

The Airflow boots appear to be well built. I tried them on at Bob's along with other brands. Prices were all within $25 and all appear well made. Overboots or booties are very useful. I carry a pair along especially in the spring/summer. This way I get to wear a lighter pai of boots and still have waterproof layer as backup.

Hmmm a ventilated summer boot that's not good in the rain??? :lol:

I have the Airflow I and I LOOOOOOVE THEM!!!! I had to look all over to find them. The Airflow II just didn't feel right but I may switch to those after mine wear out. I hope you love them as much as I do!! They are very comfortable and feel really neat in the summer, with the air flowing through. =D>

I say GREAT CHOICE!! :D

They had these at Morton's for $199.. But they looked too (for the lack of a better word) manly.. like I was compensating.

I went with the airflow II for the same price.

The last few years I've started wearing poly liner socks under merino wool socks for days when I'll be wearing boots a long time. Makes a world of difference in moisture control. The liners transfer foot sweat to the merino sox and thence the goretex/leather for evaporation. The liners feel quite dry against skin even when the merino feels a little dampish. Worked well for me both on hot dry days and during cool rain riding. (I was wearing a RevIt Ergo goretex boot). You can get the liner sox for $5 at REI. I did a 10 day tour with with 2 sets of sox (washing on alternate days :lol: ). Should work really well with air-flow style boots. Scott

I have noticed that while my boots do flow air (and keep out rain), it seems that they also flow hot air in (from the engine). Maybe not the best choice for a boxer?

Anyway, when the feet get uncomfortably warm, sticking them out into the airstream brings relief in short order.
