Best 3 season boots
Forgive me if this has been discussed but couldn't find anything in my searches. I have a 2015 vstar 950 that I just bought and am looking for the best reasonably priced 3 season boot (I'm in NY) Anyone care to share their experiences and recommendations? Much appreciated.

I have used Bates WP (water proof) Gortex boots the last two cold weather seasons. Have held up well and are warm.

You can find them in most well stocked shoe departments. Bought mine at Academy.

Thanks for the info. How are they with air flow during the summer months?

The gortex boots can get hot. During the summer I use these:

I sound like a Bates salesman, it's just that I've had very good luck with them. I'm on my second set of winter boots and either 3rd or 4th of summer pair. Try a set on, very comfortable to me and wear well.

the side zipper, does it work well? how many laces do you undo before using the side zipper?

RE: Best 3 season boots
Side zipper works great. I don't untie any laces. I found a happy medium of correct tightness of laces and being able to slide foot in with only undoing zipper. The summer boots do breath real good. The gortex ones get pretty hot if you wear the indoors for an extended period of time. Which is good for me as I'm cold natured and hate cold feet. Good luck on finding some boots that work for you.
