hopefully this is posted in the right section...

so, yes i am looking for new boots and like the forma boots but wonder what people have that they like, how they perform etc

i would like something comfortable that you can walk in

here is the forma boots link for touring - they look pretty comfy

TCX Infinity goretex, these are the best item of clothing/wear i ever bought, Easy to walk around in, comfy but most importantly they are watertight (tested :164:)

Altberg Roadrunner boots

Only had them a few months but they feel very well built, waterproof and have a Vibram walking sole on them so are great off the bike for walking.

I have been using their Field & Fell boot for the last 6 years without any problem, they are the best boots I have ever worn. Normally I go through a pair of walking boots every year but the Altbergs have been excellent value, soles are now getting a bit thin but you can get them resoled at the factory when required.

I know a few people who have used the Clubman Roadster for years without a problem.

Altberg Borego High Bandog

Great boot for Thailand with the hot weather and also a very comfatable walking boot, and dont look like motorcycle boots under a pair of jeans

I always ride with hiking boots, Meindl Island pro  goretex. I have to do a lot of walking too during the day, these boots are my best compromise.

Meindel have my respect for walking but for riding Daytona every time.  Waterproof, protection and comfort (on or off the bike).
