Rev’It Apache boots, £164.99
Miles covered/time: 3000/six months
What's good: The way they look. The Rev'It Apache boots are like a cross between motorcycle boots and trainers, with nice styling touches like suede sections. From the ankle down they’re shaped more like a shoe than your typical touring boot. They’re warm, comfortable and have so far proved completely waterproof. A springy sole makes them nice to walk in, too. They have straps to pull them on by, although personally I’ve never used these, and reflective strips at the back of the ankle.
What’s not: The top can rub a little uncomfortably against your calf if you’re not wearing a pair of long socks. That’s all.
