We’ve got the riding boots that can get you through this winter safely and comfortably. The following are our top boot picks for the cold and rainy months, but just because they’re waterproof doesn’t mean you won’t want to wear them all year round. Each of our top boots features a waterproof and breathable membrane layered just beneath their durable leather or synthetic exterior. While leather and synthetic leather materials may be water resistant, they are not waterproof. The breathable membrane sub-layer of your boots will keep your feet dry by repelling water molecules. But while the microscopic holes in the membrane are not large enough to allow water through, they are large enough to allow sweat and heat, in the form of air or vapor, to pass through so your feet can breath.
Below, take a look at the highlights of our top winter boots: the Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex, the Tour Master Solution 2.0 WP, the Sidi Adventure Rain, the Cortech Vice WP, and the Gaerne Black Rose.
Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex
Alpinestars New Land boots are one of our top boot picks for high-mileage road warriors who don’t let cloudy skies change their commute plans. Thanks to a Gore-Tex waterproof and breathable membrane, you’ll find your feet completely dry in a downpour but also a lot less clammy and hot – even in the spring and summer months. At just over $200, these boots are a great value for durable, long-lasting protection with the Gore-Tex advantage. The New Lands are fully CE-certified to meet Personal Protective Equipment standards for motorcycling footwear. Click here to read more.

Sidi Adventure Rain
Just like adventure riders, Sidi’s Adventure Boots blend off-road know how with good looks and diligence on the street. The result is a heavy-duty, lugged boot with reinforced shin coverage, a hinged ankle and heel, Cam-Lock buckle closure, and all in a relatively lightweight and comfortable package.
