This spring I replaced my Sidi On Road Gortex with Dainese TRQ Gortex touring boots. They are not quite the value of the Coretec boots at double the price but I am still very happy with them. They were a ZLA award winner on the Revzilla site. The thing that sets these boots apart is the extensive ankle bracing that really protects your ankle from severe impacts and twists, the Gortex liner, and the ease with which they can be put on or taken off.
The Goretex liner is supposedly guaranteed 100% waterproof while still maintaining enough breath ability so your feet don't get uncomfortably damp when you sweat which makes them more comfortable in the heat than the average waterproof boot. They are somehow much cooler than the Sidi's were in hot weather while still being warm enough in the coolest weather (0C/32F) I ride in. They are very easy and quick to get on and off with only a zipper on the back and the thigh sizing adjustment is set and forget as it never needs to be touched taking the boots on and off. I also prefer the thinner, stiff, race boot type sole they have as it seems to provide slightly more feel on the brake pedal.
