I have Forma Adventure boots that have a waterproof liner inside. Unfortunately 3 or 4 years of use have degraded this (it leaks now). The downside of waterproof liners is that if you do get wet, then they retain the water for much longer.

The trade off between Adventure boots or MX boots is that MX boots make walking harder work. But they offer better protection, & are better if you stand on your pegs for any length of time.
