I wear a pair of Gaerne React boots. Proper off road with excellent ankle support and just over half the weight of my SG 10's.
Get a pair of Falke ski socks and you can wear these all day in relative comfort.
Yes they still have flat soles.
And they sell at a really good price.
Highly recommend.

Does anybody wear the Airflo boots from BMW? Does it really work to keep your feet cool in summer?

Maybe ask the same on BMW Motorrad Club Cape website if you haven't already?

Donfords might also have the older version of those boots available, if I recall they were about R2800 and there was also an option of over boots for them as well

I will be buying a pair of these for trips:

Yes BMW kit is expensive but so far I have had really great service from the BMW kit I have purchased. I bought those all round boots as a mate recommended them. He uses his for trips and daily commuting and has been doing so for almost 4 years. They still look good and dont need replacing. I puchased a well known brand "cheap" pair of boots for use around JHB and they lasted me about 10 months and gave no support to my ankle. My BMW all round boots are about 6 months old now and still in great condition and show no wear. They are also comfortable and waterproof.

Watch out for the Forma local distributor - I did not have a good outcome from them.
