Does anyonehave a great set of cold weather riding boots that they would highly recommend? I curently use my reqular boots with a thick pair of cold weather hiking socks. Gotta be something better. As alwys a picture is worth a thousand words. A link even works for me. Thanks for your time.
Enjoy the chilli riding! (it was 34 this morning and I got 71 miles one way to work)

I got $50 bucks for the first guy who pulls up at Daytona bike week with these bad boys and wears 'em all day.....with their jeans tucked into them.
Ha-ha!!! And a PINK sweat band like the "Mayhem" dude in the insurance advertising!!

Alpinestars are warm and totally waterproof. Not cheap though. Usually go for between $250.00 & $300.00 at the shows here in Canada.
When it gets really really cold here in Toronto I've been known to ride with a pair of thirty dollar winter lace ups from Walmart. They are good below the freezing mark when worn with thermal socks.
I have been looking at Alpinestars but didn't know if they were worth the money. It sounds like they are. I don't mind spending money on quality products that I only have to buy once.
All the boots people have been recommending look quality - except for maybe the Moon Boots!

Those BMW boots look very similar to my Alpinestars except for a couple of minor design variations and that BMW logo. They even have the same interior lining. I find with the lower deflector deployed on the Vision, and your feet next to that big two cylinder furnace, cold feet aren't that much of an issue.

I picked these up last winter & they were great for early spring & now that the fall is here. Bit warm for work though so I can't wear them as much as I'd like!
Ihave boots like these and they are fine for fall/spring but I plan on riding into December and am wondering if they will be warm enough.
These have a lining, not like my old HH, one of the few parts not cold on this morning's 34 degree ride in. God bless you but I'm not going to be riding to work much more at those temps - beautiful ride home though in the upper 50's

Was playing around and found this article that might help make your decision. It's more about waterproof, but if they are waterproof they should be warmer as well http://www.motorcyclecruiser.com/accessoriesandgear/waterproof_motorcycle_boot_comparison/index.html
