    I wear these boots. They are rigid in the right places, but when I have walkin' around to do, I unlatch the upper buckle and the velcro. The company that makes them is Forma.20190628_080235_1561737809853.jpg

    I ended up getting the Rev'it Discovery Outdry boots because they're a great in-between for tech, protection, and comfort. They provide significantly more protection than many of the more conform/hiking oriented boots like the Gaerne Oiled or Allterain or similar boots for some protection but are great for walking/hiking. The Rev'it Discovery Outdry are very comfortable for walking even with the ankle, tow and heel protection. They're also 100% waterproof. A little pricey, but for boots you're going to have for likely up to 10yrs, that's a good investment. They have a really cool system to tighten and remove the boots as well. It's called the BOA Closure system. Super convenient and easy. So much better than buckles IMO. So far I really dig them. Good luck.

    I've been wearing the same without the GorTex for 9 years, now on the second pair. They sure have saved my poor feet and ankles many times, probably to the tune of $10,000 dollars in foot injuries! They need breaking in, but in the old pair I can walk a mile or so. They are no longer available (natch) but the discovery rain is very similar. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ain-boots-2014

    CE means Certifie European (Forgive my French, but it basically means European Certified, right?)

I advocate dressing for the slide over the ride. Here's my take on the boots I've used... https://youtu.be/gfwglvehwdU?t=530

    I wouldn't recommend the unicorn boots for riding, the horn could poke you in the leg during a fall.

    Another vote for the Forma Adventures.

    I have super wide feet, most boots I couldn't even get on. With these I sent up a size, and they are great for riding, good for walking. I couldn't come close to closing the the top buckle on the long version of the Formas, but the short were good.
