Aeromoto Dry Tour Boots Review

I have been trying out a new pair of waterproof touring boots from Aeromoto. I wrote up my thoughts in the review below.

I just bought a pair of these boots on sale for $89.99 free shipping. A good boot for the money if they truely are waterproof.

I'm torn between the Air's vs the Dry's. I kind of like the idea of a cooler boot for hot summer's here in SC that is still waterproof. I'm concerned that Dry's will be too hot. I'm also concerned that these boots will be too tall. I would prefer a 9-10" tall boot, and these are both 13" tall right?

Can you tell I'm concerned?

I am really encouraged by the few reviews I've read. They seem well made. I will continue to fret until tomorrow when I pull the trigger on one.

For street riding I have some A* Super Tech R perforated boots and they are nice in the summer. I am in SC too. However, if you get caught in the rain your feet will quickly soak.

I think in the summer the dry boots will certainly we hotter than the air boots, but the dry boot is more versatile and you wouldn't have to carry boot covers.

As for height, they come up a couple inches higher than a standard crew sock. I like to wear a tall boot sock with mine to prevent my shin from getting sore as you walk in them.

I forgot to mention that I have a pair of Alpinestars Tech 6 boot that I really like. But for normal riding and trips, they are a little much. I really just want to get away from the basic lace up leather boot I wear now. I really want a basic pair that is comfortable, zips up, and has ankle protection. Since I will be using these for trips, I decided to go with the Drys like you suggested. I will post back with my thought when I get them later in the week.

Got the boots in the mail today, along with the 2 piece rain suit I ordered. Out of the box, I'm very happy for how little I spent. They fit true to size with a little extra room for thick socks. I was concerned about the height, but they are perfect. Seem like they will be comfortable. Should be able to ride to work in them tomorrow.
