RST Vortex 2

Pros:
* The only cheap boot that fits me.
* Waterproof at first.

Cons:
* Allows the ankle far too much movement (previously sprained an ankle in them at low speed to prove it).
* Very irritating velcro as it doesn't stay properly closed at the lower part of the boot (see above point for downside to this).
* Doesn't remain waterproof.
* If you have a centre-stand, you will wear through the sole after a while.
* Don't last very long.

Overall:
Don't buy them new, they're not worth the money for anything more than occassional use. I've had 3 different pairs of them, so i've given them more than enough chance.

RRP ~£70.
