Riding boots, reviews, photos; what do you wear?

we have a thread about helmets and we have all pretty much gone nuts in that thread with our helmets but i havenít seen one on boots yet. My Sidi Vertabras died sometime ago & i need to buy something new so its a good excuse to start a thread & ask you all what you have. are they warm? are they comfortable? are they adjustable? are they water proof? are they wind proof? good bad, ugly, give us a photo of them , even if it from the manufacturer web site & tell us about them

I've had them for around 340 miles or so, so they're still fairly new, but I've liked them so far. Comfortable to ride around in, and then get off the bike and walk around for a while, before getting back on. My feet haven't been getting hot at all, but I also haven't tested them in anything over the mid-80's*F. They are perforated, so I assume they'd be good in hot weather.

In the rain, they are pretty far from waterproof.

Perhaps some slight wear here at where I shift, at least I assume that's where it's come from. Just fraying there at the one seam on the top front where I engage the shifter.

They do cover my ankles, which I like, but they're still comfortable to wear when off the bike.

I do have a knee/tibia guard as well, which is still decently comfortable to wear when off the bike. I went this route over having a huge boot that was awkward to walk in.

I currently wear work boots that has a lot of support, but I am not comfortable with the idea that they are not motorcycle boots. There are so many boots to choose from, that I am having a hard time deciding what to pick. They definitely have to be water proof. Questions, does the height of the boot play a factor in you buying them. What is your option and why. I am leaning towards boots with some height on them because they seem like they will do a great deal of protecting me in a crash.

I have the women's version of the Dainese Long Range boots:


They're relatively comfortable for riding, they are not comfortable for walking around after 10 minutes. They are very warm (as in my feet sweat on hot days) and are waterproof.

For reference, here's the women's version - and I use the term women's loosely because there is nothing feminine about these boots.

I wear Spidi X-Ultra riding shoes. They're very comfortable and breathe very well, and provide enough protection without being a racing style boot. Highly recommended if you're looking for a riding shoe.

I got the sidi cobra air. There a great boot, not really comfortable to walk around in all day but have survived 3 crashes on the track, plenty of ventalation and removeable parts to replace.
