TCX Jupiter Evo Gore-Tex Boots - Black - EPIC!
« on: September 11, 2017, 08:39:36 PM »
On the same occasion that I realised my Heine Gerrick Jacket wasn't so waterproof anymore, I also realised that whilst my 'Waterproof' Skechers Leather Boots were in fact 'Waterproof' when walking around my property, splashing in puddles and for general wear in the rain, they are NOT waterproof when you're riding a Motorcycle.........lol Also, they've come undone a couple of times whilst riding recently and that put me off them. So, in the same order as my Spada jacket, I purchased a set of these.

I'm not going to tell you they feel like wearing a pair of trainers, they don't. They feel like wearing a pair of motorcycle or racing boots, stiff at the sides, stiff in the sole, but you can still feel things and bend your foot if you need to, etc. They're also incredibly lightweight! Only ridden in them the once, but had no issues whatsoever with gear changes and brakes, if anything, I think I had more control over everything that ever before! Feel nice and warm and other reviewers say that they're definitely waterproof as advertised and one guy claims to wear them year round, rain or shine, warm or cold, so I have high hopes for these.

Going by todays ride in the wet, yes, they are FULLY waterproof. My feet stayed perfectly dry, ALL day.
