I got these boots just in time for my first trip out to the States on a cruiser launch and was pleasantly surprised at just how sturdily they cupped my ankle. Until you actually try them 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, and 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 the soles were like swimming pools after the downpours we experienced that day. On arrival at my hotel, I wringed out my socks and remove 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. Overall, I really rate these boots and would recommend them to others without any hesitation.
