I bought a pair of these Vega Nitro touring boots In a word- CRAP They leak (note the wording in their sales pitch- "Waterproof all leather uppers" http://www.cbxmanmotorcycles.com/Vega-Touring-Mens-Motorcycle-Boots.aspx The lowers are not unless its a cloudburst. Your feet will get soaked in rain over 5 mins. They are like foot saunas on a hot day. In one season I lost both reflective heel logos. The sole separated on both boots. It is better to pay more and get a good boot that will keep your feet dry and comfortable.
