I have SIDI Canyon boots. I've worn them for three years worth of hard riding in all seasons here in the Pacific Northwet. They have never leaked, keep my feet warm in the winter with a pair of wool socks and aren't to hot in the summer. They've been resoled once. I like them because they look like a basic boot and are reasonable for hikes.
It is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
