I recently bought a pair of Alpinestars that are very similar to those of MOB. Totally waterproof, yet breathable for $125

tourmaster solution 2's are the cheapest answer, waterproof and comfortable and come in wide sizes.   downside is the soles are thin and a lot of walking in them  and they go away.  I wore the soles out on 2 pair of them.   I tried the M2R boots when they were on closeout  and still have them. they are old  and ratty looking  but still waterproof with the addition of a bit of shoegoo in spots around the soles.  (everything wears out eventually)
 current best answer, tcx  x-5 goretex waterproof.  which is the same boot as the old oxtar matrix.  good boots, prolly the best Ive tried, wide enough for my ee wide feet waterproof and  heavily soled so maybe i wont walk them to death off bike.  this will be the 3rd season on them and they look good to go for it.   I usually only get at most 2 years out of a riding boot.  I think I paid like 225 for them.  pricer than the tourmasters but seem to be worth it so far.

I've had a pair of Alpinestar Web boots. I love them. They CAN get a little toasty in the summer but I think they're worth it.

Klim Adult Covert GTX Liner Socks $100

I have these too.  They are very impressive. Feet never get wet yet it breathes so well.

I really like my Gaene's . They feel like soft slippers on my feet. Super comfortable.

I have had over a year with Cortech. My next pair will be the same

No.

But I have these in my wish list at amazon.com.  I need new gear, and this is likely going to be the boots I buy.

I had a pair of Alpinestars that are no longer WP. This year I purchased a pair from Cycle Gear on the cheap. Less than $79. Not as nice as my Alpine Stars must the price was great. I wore them on a 1500 mile trip and dry feet! :) and they have a better warranty than the AS boots!

Vendramini Marathon Steel. Expensive. Worth it in my books. Extremely comfortable all weather boot; great to walk in when necessary. I've had mine for 7 years and when (or "if") they die I'll absolutely get the same.

This site has the  TCX on closeout sale. These are the old Oxtar Matrix Gore Tex, rebranded under a new name. They are my favorite boot. I've wadded across low water crossings in them without getting a single drop inside my boot. The Gore Tex lining works.
