What do you call an arm or leg.
I have Dayton GTX gore-tex. not cheap but comfortable and waterproof.
I didn't realise they even went this high until i saw some at the shop tonight, I thought £300 was about the ceiling.

if you buy good boots and your feet are dry this weather then they are worth every penny :3some:

Bought them at the London bike show 3 or 4 years ago, can’t remember senility kicked in, cost about £300 show price so in my mind good value.

I'm a cheap skate and had a set of Altbergs from stores for free. If they can keep my feet warm and dry on Sennybridge or Salisbury Plain, then they will be fine for the bike. I do need to invest in some decent boots though soon.

I can highly rate these! Had them now for nearly 7 years and are still in one piece apart from the toe sliders being ground out. Still waterproof (Gore-Tex)and work well even in the very cold winter (with the right sock). Easy to put on and adjust for tightness with the inner pull cord system, unbelievably comfortable even from out the box and have just gotten better with use over time.

Yes they aren't cheap but with the abuse I have given them they are still looking great with a clean and a bit of nikwax at the beginning of the winter.
Of all the boots I have and had these are still my go to ones for everything from cold, wet track days to touring and commuting.

I also have a set of the below which, after many years are still holding up, very comfortable and still waterproof.
