Getting the boot
Motorcycle boots are an important part of our riding gear.
Because I ride a BMW Cruiser, I wanted boots with a low profile, so I can get my toe under the shift lever easily. Also, I prefer boots that are 3/4 height... it makes it easier for me to flex my foot compared to full height boots.
I started out with the Sidi Champions, and then bought the BMW Airflow boots for the warmer weather. Eventually I acquired the Kochman Silverstone boots and let my sons wear the Sidis when they ride with me.

RedBike Silverstone boots
The Silverstone boots are the most recent addition.
Although the photographs below make the boots appear grey, they are actually black. The leather is sort of a nubuck suede, and feels very nice. There are Schoeller Dynatec fabric inserts, and reflective piping. The boots are waterproof because of the water resistant leather and the Sympatex liner.
These boots required virtually no breakin... they were comfortable immediately.
BMW AirFlow boots
BMW Airflow boots are incredibly comfortable and provide decent ventilation. I wear them whenever the temperatures are above 50 degrees or so.
I have some rain covers (I forget the brand name) that I can use over the shoes when the weather gets wet.
Sidi Champion boots
Waterproof, very comfortable and flexible, with a wide, low toebox.
A great all around boot. The Lorica covering looks and feels just like leather.
