    I searched for quite a while with the criteria of water proof and comfort. I bought the Sidi Canyons. They slip on and off easily and are good for walking in. Have not tested the waterproof part.

    Forma Adventures are not true off road boots but they should come close I think t what you are wanting. I had a set of Balanced oil I sold....the Forma Adventures are just better in my opinion.

    You eloquently describe a condition known among professionals as "OBT" :D (over boot top)

    I've been looking at three boots to try to do both road and off road rides - 2 waterproof one not so much...

    Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex
    Alpinestars Toucan Gore-Tex
    And the Gaerne SG-10 (Not waterproof like the other two, but might actually fit better. And there are now sprays that you can put on to make anything waterproof, within reason.)

    If there is a cheaper priced, equally good boot out there, I'd like to know about it. I currently have the Alpinestars Scout, and a cheap ATV boot by Fox. The Scout is way to light for the off road I want to do, I fear crushing my foot if the 990 falls on it! The cheap Fox boot seems to be about what I paid for. Sloppy fit, can't buckle them easy, showing a lot of wear for a small amount of use, they do NOT breath at all, yet very much not waterproof... A bit weird. I am not dishing Fox boots at all, for what I paid for them they are fine. I just want something better.
