I got these boots specifically for a couple of recent cruiser launches. I’ve always liked the look of them, but lacked the purpose to get some in to test. They arrived just in time for my first trip out to the States and I was pleasantly surprised on fitting them at just how sturdily they supported my ankle. Until you actually try one on, you can’t appreciate how well supported these boots are, all the way up to the top.
They also proved really comfortable and looked smart, paired up with my bike jeans. A thousand miles on, on my second trip to America, I got caught out in the most unreal storm I’ve ever known. These boots claim to be waterproof, but understandably so, the soles were like swimming pools after the downpours we experienced that day. On arrival at my hotel, I wrung out my socks and removed the sole liner with ease. The boots dried overnight and I was good to go again the next day. Since then I’ve put them through a number of showery conditions and remained bone dry, so I can only put their leaking down to the severity of the weather.
