I own a pair of Cortech Latigo Waterproof Boots in size 10. I wear Vans shoes at size 10 1/2. I stand 5'10" and weigh 170lbs. http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/c...rproof-rr-boot
I have owned these boots for the past 1,200 miles and I am very happy with them so far. They are comfortable and fit an average footbed and size.
PROS: I did a 650 miles round trip this past weekend and 200 of those miles were in the rain. Temperature ranging between 45F - 50F in the mountains, but not calculating wind chills going 70MPH. I wore a regular socks. My feet were both dry and somewhat chilly. Not even close to numbness cold, but just a chill feeling. I also wore Olympia Airglide 3 pants and placed it's waterproof liner inside the boot and I had the outer pants going over the boots with perfect fitment.
I am comfortable on the Versys with these boots. I have no issues with shifting. I don't feel a need to readjust the shift lever to a different position.
CONS: If you decide to purchase this boot, please be aware that it's a 50/50 chance you will get a decent boot. Half the time, there are some slight issues with the soles not being aligned correct, the glue isn't enough or too excessive, or in some areas of the boots, the threading is terrible.
Let me know if you're interested in pictures. I don't mind putting the pants and boots on.
EDIT: Protection on the boot is about moderate. The area that is bendable are the leather areas by the ankle sliders. It takes a bit of force to bend the boot 90 degrees to both sides. Walking is pretty comfortable. Maybe 40% robot like.
: If you own pants with mesh inner linings, I would avoid Cortech Latigos. They have side velcros that you need to open to gain access to the zippers. If you're not careful when putting on or taking off the boots, some velcro may grab some of the mesh linings. Overtime, the mesh will wear and tear.
