Alpinestars Roam 2 WP Boots
« on: January 23, 2017, 06:46:24 pm »
Looking for some boots.  Anyone here tried these?
 It looks like they would be a good all weather as long as it wasnt below freezing or 100 degrees.

If/when i get something other than motocross boots (for my dirt bikes) and something for the street I am seriously going to consider these.

I have these that are a step down from those. I am just about to buy a new pair. Really pleased with the fit. They are water proof as well as far as my experience in the rain. $130.00.

Here's what I have.  About the same deal, I guess.  https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/tour-master-solution-20-wp-boots
Maybe a little cheaper too.

These are what I have too. Great boots but WP is a matter of degree. Decent for walking around awhile. Alpinestars IMO are the best.

I have a pair.  A little tight in the toe area but other than that love them.

After having Gore Tex Alpinestars for nearly 8 years, zippers gave up. So I was looking for boots w/o zippers. Roam2 fit well, have no zippers and relatively waterproof.
Since ADV bikes have less weather protection GoreTex  boot is prefered. C14 has more protection, I hope Roam2 are adequate to keep my feet dry.

Cheers...
