What special boot ?I don't see the point in having special boots for rain. I mean who wants to keep carrying all the extra gear. Do you work all day in them? Go to dinner in them? Work in the office/yard with them on?
This sounds very dangerous. Slippery and unpredictable footing.have always carried plastic grocery bags to put over my feet in the rain.
Excellent looking stuff you are using Mac! Looks very comfy and I like the bit about the armour not floating around and you know it's on the joint.I generally don't care about wet feet when I have decent socks on .
That said I have a pair of light hunting boots that are waterproof and easy to walk in.
I got them on that $50 off deal.
I bought them specifically non-insulated for Australia where I ride in the tropics.
Combined with these superlight Thor knew protectors I don't feel weighed down at all - barely know they are under the riding pants and continuous as the bottom of the Thor come to the top of the boots.
I prefer armor that is separate so I know it actually is on the joint - not floating about.

Chappy, there has been some good advise given here. Boots are the way to go especially if they are weather proof. Wearing "Gators" is also good... Wearing the bag your pot roast came in is not what anyone should indorse. It is safer to get wet feet and keep your footing than to risk a tip over because your plastic bag slid out from under you on a slick spot on the road....

Only ride on weekend, holiday, vacation, yes ride all day with boots. Do not ride to work, but could wear them for work as plenty room on Burgie for other shoe, sneaker etc.View attachment 23041 Do you all ride in the hot summer with these motorcycle boots on? Do wear them for daily work also? I love my vented tennis in summer.
Do a quick pull over, grab bags and roll of tape, cruise through rain, rain gone, pull over tear off.
Easy to pack, no dead space lost and been through mega down pours and floods, you can also put foot down in puddle. 100 per cent water proof, done it for years. These work with tennis shoes, ballet shoes,office shoes etc. I don't recommend it or endorse it, it's just a thing I thought I'd share. I don't fancy wearing motorcycle boots all day or all summer long.
