Probiker 70 Boots, £59.95
Miles covered/time: 10,000/one year
What’s good? They’re utterly waterproof, extremely comfy and they won’t break the bank.
If you’re looking for some decent touring boots that you can wear all year round, are understated enough to be for motorcyclists and not for posers, and will survive all kinds of scrapes, burns and drenchings, then look no further.
What’s not? Very little. They’re relatively un-armoured and boot-like, so you would probably want something more nimble for a track day, but that’s not why you’d buy them.
The only real downside is that they feel slightly clumpy compared to some boots, but I think it works in their favour.
