What is good? 100% waterproof, I’ve ridden in snow, torrential rain for hour after hour and even been walking in deep snow and I can confirm they’re 100% waterproof.

They are also really comfortable. I hate the fact most bike boots are agony to walk in, but these short boots are perfect, so much so I actually used them recently for long walks in the snow.

There’s no problem with the short ankle length either, and despite the recent harsh salty conditions they still look like new.

What is not? I’ll argue they are not as warm as some boots I’ve tested previously and they don’t feel as secure as normal length boots as there is no shin protection.

Rating: 4/5
