What boots are you wearing?

Im in the market for some riding boots. I commute 80 miles a day. Looking for something all weather, tall enough to keep from getting the bottom of my pants wet, and waterproof. $200 or less if I possible. I have done some shopping and I can find several quality boots that fit this description, but I'm just wondering what everyone else has found to work well.

Thanks in advance.

Are you looking for an over-the-pant style then? I mentioned this in the other thread, but I've been really happy with the Icon Patrol boots, and they're a more casual style that I just wear all day. I rely on my over-pants to keep my pants dry.

I opted for these vs. an over-the pant style that I would have to change out of.

I have non perforated BiLt boots for summer and Sidi's non perforated boots for winter. Find a boot you like and buy some boot covers. Really easy to take on and off your boots with them on.

I ended up going this route. I got a deal from Bill at CycleShack North that I could not pass up. Went with the Cortech Latigo Air RR boot. Like I said I couldnt pass up the great deal, thanks Bill! Now I need to research boot covers!

I commute in Sidi Fusion boots. Unless you ride for extended time in a downpour your feet will stay warm and dry.
