Alpinestars Scout WP Boots
Good boots at a good price
I bought the boots for dual sport back country riding. You never know if it is going to be wet or dry, but these boots will help you all the way. Took a few rides to break in and get the buckles just right, but after that they were solid. Good feel through the boots for shifter and brakes. A little warm but understandable because they are waterproof. A great starter boot at a good price.

Very good boots!
Not much to say other than these are a great boot for a great price. I have wide feet at the ball of my feet and a narrow heal. They fit me great and are very comfortable. The were perfect for my needs as an all around boot!!

I like the height of the scout wp boot, thick leather boot.
I just bought the alpine scout wp boots, so I haven't ridden with them on the bike yet. It is a substantial boot, thick leather, should protect foot, ankle, and shin, but feels comfortable to wear. It is 14" tall, from floor to top of boot, kind of stiff, hopefully will break in quickly. My concern will be shifting the bike. I also purchased a pair of tourmaster solution wp air boots for hot temps, these are super comfortable boots, right at 11" tall. Any comments out there about shifting the transmission with the scout boots, I ride a 1800 Goldwing. Always impressed with Revzilla, good to see product reviews by Anthony and all the customers reviews.

Best entry level adventure boots I could find
I recently purchased this boots looking for waterproofness and a bit more protection. This is only my second pair of motorcycle shoes, the first being a more street/casual orientated model.
Very comfortable and they fit much better than the Garne boots that I tried, the range of adjustment seems much larger and can hold a narrower feet and buckles lock into place much more securely.
Easy to put on and take off (quicker than lace-ups) and they are definitely waterproof.
Good quality leather, about 2000km on them and not a scratch, unlike the TCX I got before that got scuffed badly very quickly.
Can get a bit warm and on the stiffer side, it took a couple of days of getting use to shifting gears.
Hard to fit under jeans, but they fit perfect (and look awesome) under my Klim Overland pants.

I don't think i'll be able to wear them once summer hits here in north florida. My main problem was not having non-vented boots for the winter. Problem solved. I've been very comfy down to 45 degrees. Of Course the first thing i do with any boot is pull out the garbage insole and put in one that works for me, after that they are plenty comfortable after break in. I walked on the beach for a couple hours to expedite the break in, no problems. I've also done a couple mile nature walk in them. Ride some dirt , get off and walk in the woods with the girlfriend. Dual-sport stuff. They work.

I am a timber cutter and spend a lot of time hiking through the woods. On the days I ride my bike and scouting for timber (not cutting) I don't bother packing my logging boots. They're comfortable with a lot of support and waterproof, though definitely on the warm side. Also, when I buy boots I look for stitched on soles which can be replaced when worn out, which these boots have. It also leaves me the option of putting on a more aggressive vibram sole.
My only complaint is once the leather is broken in and flexes it can be tricky to get the buckles to snap in for a tight fit. Also, I have large calves and the Velcro closure on top still overlaps quite a bit to keep them snug.
I had the Sidi Adventure boots, but I have a wide foot and those run narrow. The Scouts fit perfectly.

Best Value under $300
After much research, it came down to the Scouts and Gaerne G Adventure. The Scouts won thanks to the extra protection on the ankle bones. I like that they're all black with very subtle logos (not common for AStars).
Fit was perfect and comfortable right out of the box. The top of the boot is very wide though but it's not an issue when wearing and doesn't impact comfort (even on my chicken calves). But the width makes it hard to pull my Tourmaster riding pants over the top. I can, but they don't move at all.
All in all, great boot and the best in this price range.
