I bought a pair of these 2 years ago from LeatherUp.com and love the deep heavy tread, which prevents slipping in mud, gravel, oily and wet pavement. They are in pretty good shape for all the miles I've put on them and do well in the rain. I do treat them several times a year to a good coating of Dubbin. Proally why my Boots is Dusty!
I recently bought a pair of the Tourmaster Solution WP Touring Boot and did a review of them, here. My boots above don't see as much use since I bought these ones, Great for touring with the only downfallbeing a lack of a real good lug sole.
LeatherUp.com regularly runs sales with as much as 15% off everything they sell.(probably have one coming up at the end of the month?)Might just be to members who are registered(free) and get their sales event emails.
Good service and fairly quick shipping. Not affiliated in any way, shape, or form.
I love my tourmaster solution boots, had them about 3 years now, comfy, waterproof and reasonable, I like the soles as they arent lugged and dont get snagged in the pegs, I would recommend these to anyone, my brother saw mine and got a pair he loves em too.
Oh ya .... along with ash and debris floating down. Glad my bike is parked in covered parking.
Air quality is pretty bad. Went for a little ride last night up to Lost Moose Lodge and escaped the majour smoke for a while last night. I heard that they are supposed to reopen Hwy 97 and the Connector again, soon. :clapper:
I wouldn't call these a "tour boot" by style but you might find them interesting. I did a review on the Icon Accelerant bootshere last month and like them even better now. Icon also has a mesh boot that looks very similar if you want a cool boot and are not concerned about rain protection.
Theysell these cheaper than the military exchanges by at least a half. They have removeable insoles that allows a person to put in orthotics, and the zipper is hand if your feet get hot and sweaty when you make a fuel stop. I'm on my feet at least six hours a day in the classroom with concrete floors, and my feet don't get tired. :clapper::clapper:
There are tons of them. Depends on what you are looking for. For me... SWAT boots. Same as used by police swat teams. They are durable, extremly light weight for a tallish laced boot, with side zipper. I like laced boots over pull-ons as they will not come off ones feet in a tumbleing accident situation. Fortunatly I have not personally tested this!!! I have had leather riding boots that can be re-soled. But after one or two re-soling's they are done. The SWAT boots cannot be re-soled. But I found that 3 pairs of them "SWAT" acutally cost less in the long haul and are soooo much more comfortable. I can actually, also, hike for hours with these boots! I have found that most motorcycle boots are not too friendly for long walks or hiking.
Just my preference. There are lot's of other options.
