Obviously now out of warranty so have been shopping for some new boots today.

Tried on various candidates including:-
Alpinestar Scout Boots
Hein Gericke version of TCX Infinity
Sidi Gore-Tex B2
Alpinestar Durban Gore-Tex
Dainese Virunga D-Dry

I really liked the Alpinestar Durban but they are £130 ($212) more than the £165 ($270) Dainese so I bought the same boots again. The old ones have now been retired to light/dry duties and were quite good value. Lets hope the new ones are as good as the old ones were

Does anyone have any experience on Dainese Visoke boots? I think they are the new virunga.


I tried Alpinestars Durban, TCX Infinity, Sidi Adventure and all of them are too narrow in the toe section. These seem to be the only one that fit propely.

Too narrow at toes?? Rev'it Apache are the boots you're looking for! They're pricey but worth every penny

Well 39months from my last post in this thread the new replacement pair that I bought have now started to both leak. Water has definitely not got in from the top but has found its way in somewhere from around the foot...so what do I replace them with...

TIA

I'm happy with my Dainese visoke. Very light weight. But the best waterproof boots I've ever had are my rev'it Apache. I fell crossing a little river in my Africa Twin. Two friends came to help me to lift the bike. They had cold feet for hours but mine were completely dry. It was unbelievable
