Best Hot Weather Adventure Bot?

Hey Guys,
I live in AZ and do a lot of trail and adventure rising. I currently wear Aerostitch Rider Combat Adventure boots but need something cooler as my feet sweat so much above 85-90F that the boots and my socks get totally saturated with water after a couple of hours of hard riding. The Revizilla guys recommended the following:
Sidi Canyon Gore-Tex - $360
Sidi Arnada Gore-Tex - $400
TCX X-Desert Gore-Tex - $400
Sidi Adventure Rain - $400 (with Sidi proprietary breathable membrane)
Sidi Adventure Rain Gore-Tex - $550
Do any of you currently own these and ride in the AZ heat with them? (I might add that I rode the COBDR last Sept and also sweated like crazy with the Combat Adv boots) Are the Gore-Tex version of the Adv Rain Sidi boots worth another $150?
Thanks for the Advice,
JP

Got a couple of those Sidi boots above (Adventure and Canyon's) neither is particularly better than the other for hot weather. My Sidi Crossfires are better, but they aren't "Waterproof", but for aggressive riding that's not been an issue.

Not sure if anything will stand up to AZ summer heat, that shit is brutal.

These help quite a bit (DryMax Socks)...

I read this thread just to find out what an "Adventure Bot" was.

Now that I found out, I'll add that I ride daily, year around. On the street I use Alpinestars tech Touring boots. For dual sport use I use Alpinestars Tech 3's.

To hell with the heat.

Bot is southern redneck spelling for boot. My apologies.

Regardless of your choice, I'd buy a boot with Gore-Tex brand only because they'll warranty them many years down the road. I had the the Adventure goretex and now the Canyons and never had my feet feel sweaty inside. I wear a pair of Thorlo boot socks that wick the sweat away pretty well. I think the trick is finding a great sock. Merino wool works great, too. Both of those boots were cooler on my summer commutes vs. my uniform work boots.

Since you live in a place with less than 1 inch of rain per month, I say you forego waterproofing in your primary boot. Even Gore Tex wont breath and flow air like no waterproofing at all.
