I'm on the huntfor some decent *waterproof* boots as my current boots are shagged. I saw the SMX 6 goretex boots at a retailer and the signage said "new for 2014". Now these suckers just fit aroundmy calves, and goretex has a good name, however I'm hoping someone else has handed over nearly 400 of the folding stuff and say if they're worth it. I'm predominantly a commuter, round trip is 80km, so good waterproof boots is a must. Even if you don't have these boots, I'd welcome any thoughts on astar as a brand.
